As of this moment, there are exactly 200 ratings for the Decktet and 100 for Magnate.

Congratulations!
My wife and I just introduced my sister to Bharg the other day.
What's the next Decktet game we should try? I'd give Magnate a shot, but I'd have to round up some dice and tokens.

Try Color Bazaar, if you haven't. For me it is the definitive Dectket game.

Magnate might be more strategically intense, but it plays more like an actual board game using a deck. Color bazaar is less strategically sound (there is a bit more randomness), but plays as a card game.

Sounds more like what I'm looking for. I'll take a look!
Thanks!

I think Colour Bazaar is best with three. It's zero sum with two player, because every colour splits 3-2. With three, however, colours can split 2-2-1. So you may have 2 in two strong colours, shared with different opponents. And each opponent has an incentive to make the colour shared with them stronger.

For two or three players, you might also look at Jacynth and Quincunx. Players lay out cards in a grid in both games, but they are very different. In Jacynth, it is about controlling connections across the whole grid. In Quincunx, it is about scoring with the card you just played while not leaving too many opportunities for the next player. I enjoy them both.

Neither require suit chips or dice. Jacynth requires the deck and some player tokens. Quincunx just takes the deck and a score pad.

Colour Bazaar is good. I also enjoy Hermit quite a bit but it is more of a "take that" game.
