“Best Card Game”

The Decktet (firmament)

a curious deck in six suits

The Decktet is a deck of cards with suits, ranks, and named images. It is structurally unlike ordinary poker and tarot decks, meaning that you can do different things with it.

This is the complete Decktet. It includes the 36-card basic deck: single-suited Aces, double-suited ranks 2 through 9, and single-suited Crowns. It also includes all the extended deck cards: the Excuse, the triple-suited Pawns, and the Courts.

This deck has the firmament card back.

Rules for Thricewise and Nonesuch are included. Rules for many more games are available on The Decktet Wiki and in The Decktet Book.
