27 Haiku: A Game of Art and Poetry

In this card game, players assemble fragments of haiku to represent famous works of art.

27 Haiku is many things: a game, a tool to strengthen creativity and aesthetic judgement, a portable collection of fine art, and a work of experimental literature, among others.

When playing the game, players compete to arrange fragments of poems into one of 74,088 possible haiku; the winner of each round is the player whose composition most beautifully represents a particular famous work of visual art.

Sometimes these haiku are poignant; sometimes they teach lessons; sometimes they are beautiful; sometimes they are morbid; and sometimes they are merely brilliant, evocative nonsense; but they are all thought-provoking jewels to discover and treasure.
