UK Vintage Deck

Part of the PHYLO biodiversity trading card game

This 60 card STARTER deck collects vintage biodiversity related illustrations that predate 1913 (at least one hundred years old). Most come from wiki commons or the Biodiversity Heritage LIbrary, where copyright status appears clear.

All organisms collected depict common flora and fauna found in the United Kingdom. Note the game has been play tested for kids 7 and up.

Play the ecosystem game, collect the cards, and contribute to the project!

PHYLO: THE TRADING CARD GAME | The PHYLO(MON) PROJECT [phylogame.org]

- - -

PHYLO is a project that began as a reaction to the following nugget of information: Kids know more about Pokemon creatures than they do about real creatures.

PHYLO is also: (1) a card game that makes use of the wonderful, complex, and inspiring things that inform the notion of biodiversity; (2) an exercise in crowd sourcing, open access, and open game development; and (3) FREAKIN’ AWESOME!
