Triangles: Original

Unique 90-card alternative to traditional playing cards.




What is it?

A beautiful deck of 90 cards with which you can play a wide variety of games. Comes with rules for two games with more available to download for free. A fresh and triangular take on traditional playing cards.

All about triangles

Each card represents a piece of a triangle numbered 1-3, and is "cut" in one of three ways:

  • Horizontal cut
  • Vertical cut
  • Centered cut

Three pieces of the same cut numbered 1, 2 and 3 make up a whole triangle. There are three colors and no less than nine complete triangles, which serve as jokers in some games.


Unlimited games

With a deck of Triangles playing cards you can play any number of games. The box comes with printed rules for two games: a base game included in all Triangles decks (yes, there's a whole series of them, all available here on The Game Crafter) and a bonus game only included in this Original edition.

Game #1: Triangle Mayhem

Complete triangles by placing cards at the center of the table. Three pieces numbered 1-3 of the same cut make up a complete triangle. The center of the table is free-for-all and any player may be the one to finish a triangle by placing the last missing piece, thus scoring points. A fast game suitable for 2+ players.

Game #2: Triangle Tricks

This was an entry for the TGC trick taking challenge. A fun trick-taking extravaganza with a twist!

Play a card from your hand determining color and cut. Others must follow by playing cards of the same color. The highest value card takes the trick. Since Triangles cards are only numbered 1-3 odds are players will be tied, and this is where the twist comes in. Another round begins and all players are still in the race, even if they played a lower number. By strategically playing your low cards first you can snatch the win later on — and score more points!

Whoever takes the trick scores all cards played during the trick. If multiple rounds are played, the points quickly add up!

First to 150 points wins. A game for 2-7 players.

Triangles come in many shapes

There's a whole series of Triangles decks, each with its own unique visual design. Each deck comes with printed rules for two games — a base game found in all decks, and a bonus game found only in that specific deck. Rules to more games can be downloaded for free online.

This is the Triangles: Original deck:

  • The world cities of Sydney, Los Angeles and London.
  • Two games: Triangle Mayhem and Triangle Tricks.

What's in the box?
