Anyone ever tried a game of Mao with a Decktet deck? The dual suits seem like they would make it pretty awesome and add a whole new level to a classic. (I perused the forums quickly and didn't see any mention of Mao in the Decket area, but I apologize if it's already been discussed at length).

With the amount of information on your average Decktet card, I could see Mao turning a bit crazier than it appears to be. It might take quite a bit to figure out some of the rules from what is played.

I'm not sure I can play this game without thinking of the Deer Hunter and Russian Roulette.

Mao is already pretty complex. I think that the decktet cards would be too busy. Though my Mao partners included a Dr. in Mathematics, a computer programmer and a masters in Biology, so perhaps less involved groups could get more mileage.

I've played Mao with two Decktets before, but it has been a while. I believe my group enjoyed it. I only tweaked a couple of the base rules before starting. New rules are a little harder to figure out, but when you have a group that has played a lot of Mao together, the new rules were becoming too easy to figure out. My group loves the challenge of figuring out other people's rules, and the Decktet definitely brought Mao to the next level.

On top of that, with the dual suits, we found it easier to go out in the beginning thus having the ability to add new rules to the game quicker. So I'd rather play Mao with a Decktet over standard decks of cards.
