This looks nifty.
Some clarificatory questions...
Is it for two players, or more?
Trick Taking: hands are won in the usual way.
Do other players have to follow the lead?
Actually, Pawns & Courts are higher than Crowns, but you can't lead with a Pawn/Court and you must match all the suits on the lead card in order to take the trick with a Pawn/Court.
Hmm... what if you have to lead and you only have Pawns and Courts?
Aces are only played for their special power and then discarded.
So I guess they aren't played as parts of tricks, but instead as a kind of interrupt. But you still draw back to five between tricks. Right?
We've had a lot of fun with this long weekend with the Decktet. So much variety with such a simple (sic) deck of cards!!! Genius. Will continue to play and refine.
Very cool. I'm glad you're having fun with it.
Have you thought about requiring that each card in a set must match a suit with at least one of the other cards? Or just giving a bonus of +2 if you can manage to do that. Might make for a little more dynamic set collection.Yes, thought about this but couldn't think of an easy way to implement. I really like the bonus points for matching suit in a story (set). Thanks for the suggestion!!!! Will try this next time.
