Revisiting classic playing cards. A pretentious idea? No, simply a funny idea I had in mind for many years. Get K6T and play most of the game you have played so far, expend them with new rules and invent new games of your own.

K6T cards

This is the 2017 edition. The back is now symmetrical (some photos below are not updated yet). The deck comes within a nice tuckbox.

K6T back

What's K6T?

There are 6 suits. All have a different color. Clubs are green and Diamonds are orange

K6T Aces

The new suits are blue Moons and purple Stars. The Moons are footed as the Clubs and the Spades. The Stars have a sharp bottom as the Diamonds and the Hearts.

Then, a K6T deck has 120 cards

K6T 6-suit

In every suit, pips go from 1 to 12. So, 11 and 12 are added


There is a 0 too. But, a void card would be silly. 0's are also Jokers


Some playing cards decks have Aces, some have a 1. In K6T, there are both, 1's and Aces. 1 is worth less than 2, Ace is the strongest card of the suit


There is 6 different courts in every suit. They use the 6 Chess figures. The Jack (J) is the lowest, it is represented by a pawn. The King (K) is the strongest, only the Ace is above him. King is followed by he Queen (Q)

As in Tarot decks, a Knight or Cavalier (C) is the 4th court. The Cavalier ranks just above the Jack

Above the Cavalier there is the Bishop (B), then the Tower (T) (Rook (R) on older decks)

K6T Court cards

A full suit is then made of 20 cards:


K6T Full 1

Is there a way to get this deck with a more classical/elegant back?

What does 'K6T' mean? It's an interesting name.

6 is for the 6 suits
T is because there are 20 cards in one suit and T is the 20th letter of the alphabet.
K is for the phonetics of cards or my own name.
NB: I have also designed an extension with 13-14-15 in each suit but I have not changed the name...

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
