. It has a unique structure from a typical deck of cards in that there are 6 suits and many of the cards have more than one suit. But enough about that, follow the links if you want more information, lets talk about how you can make some !

There are currently more than 60 Decktet games in the BGG database, many of which are unreviewed and unrated. To help fix that, with PD's permission, I have decided to open up a window of opportunity for users to earn an extra geek gold bounty for posting a review of a Decktet game. Obviously it is preferred if you have been able to play a game many times but our requirements here are really very light. All you really need to do is post a review and you will earn some moolah. Previously posted reviews do not count! I am looking for new material.

This window will close on April 22nd whenever I am awake and remember to close the list. At that time I will compile results and start handing out .

I would like to encourage diversity though, and the reviewing of games that haven't been reviewed yet so here is the format.

First make a geeklist item with the game you are going to review and say why you chose that one. Post your review to that game's forum, then return and post a link in your item to the review. All the reviews will evenly split all the tipped to this list plus an additional 75 that I will add, with 2 bonuses.

Bonus 1 - The first person to post a review to any specific game gets a (edit: slight adjustment)

Bonus 2 - Anyone that reviews a game with no reviews prior to this list, including someone who satisfies #1 above, will get an additional .

If enough is tipped to the thread I will increase the bonuses in accordance.

Note: There may be games on the wiki that haven't formally been added to BGG yet. If you want to post a review for a game not yet added to the system that is fine. Post the item here as "Decktet" and name the game. You can choose how to type it up then (under reviews for Decktet, as a blog, on the geeklist item itself etc).

In brief:

Step 1 - Make review
Step 2 - Link review
Step 3 - Profit!

Main site: www.decktet.com
Rules and more: wiki.decktet.com

The Decktet is available as a free PnP or you may purchase it from several print-on-demand sites such as artscow or the game crafter.

I wrote my first ever review for my new gaming blog on Bisque. I cross-posted here, but it should be pending in geekmod (however, my contribution tab doesn't show it as pending... Not sure what's up with that. If I don't hear about it one way or another, I'll try reposting in a couple of days).

Edit - it's up!

In the meantime, you can check it out here.

I'll be reviewing the 2 player "Moving Day." Mostly for the selfish reason that I've played it once and I've wanted to give it a couple more sessions. It's neat little Knizia-esque number that deserves a second look.
