The Singularity Deck – Earth Full Set

The Singularity Deck is an infinitely expandable deck of playing cards that allows for an immense number of games to be played. With it you can enjoy old classics or invent new ones. Each set of cards associated with The Singularity Deck can be combined with other sets to create new and interesting card pairings. The card back design and suit icons have been made a part of the public domain allowing for anyone to design on top of the preexisting decks (find the link in my publisher description). Check out the bottom of the description for links to all of the other cards in the Singularity Deck.

The Singularity Deck - Earth Full Set contains six suits: spades, hearts, diamonds, clubs, triangles, and ovals. Each Suit contains all standard playing card ranks (A thru K) plus a few extras including an 11 & 12, a singularity card, a City card, and an Ω card. They each include three copies of the A-rank and one copy each of the other ranks, for a total of twenty cards (A,A,A,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,J,Q,K,C,Ω, and singularity) per suit.

The Singularity Deck - Earth Full Set: Sample Card Art For Each Suit

Each suit begins with the alpha card and ends with the omega card, which depicts an earth wide catastrophe associated with each suit. The alpha cards can be put together to make a time-lapse of the earth’s rotation. The namesake card of the deck, the singularity card, is ranked both zero and infinity and stands outside of the other ranks.

The cards have secondary suits, called shields, which indicate suit pairings. Additionally, they have secondary dice ranks. The dice ranks are on cards ranked A-12 and repeat twice for each suit (for example, both the rank-6 card and the rank-12 card have a 6-pip dice). This allows for the deck to easily play games requiring duplicate ranks within each suit. It also means that each suit can function as a pair of dice.

I had bought an earlier version (both Earth and Cosmos decks) with 4 suits each only. I consider buying the new edition again because it looks much improved: new and original (and pretty) designs for the Courts; different C(ity) for each suit; dice and shields (although I'm not sure what to do with them but that's original); 11 and 12. I have few questions:
* why three A per suit in the deck?
* why T(ower) and not C(ity) in the Cosmos deck? It would have been better to have both T and C for every suit and not three A.
* It seems that the pips are now bigger. Please confirm. If yes, this is quite good because on my version they are too small and do not contrats enough with the indexes.
* Why removing the 1? A 1 with the normal pip size (like in my K6T) would be good. (Instead of one duplicate A).
Last minor critic. I regret that the pips are all oriented the same. Modern decks have some pips oriented to top other to bottom. You have a nice symmetric back, it is too bad that all pips...See more

Hi Jean-Louis,
Thanks for the questions and I'm glad you like the new art.
The shield icons are there to indicate suit pairings. For example, in a standard deck of cards hearts and diamonds are both red. Since each suit in the Singularity Deck has it's own color, the shared shield icon indicates their pairing. The shield icons are based on logic gating symbols and can also be used for grouping between the earth and cosmos sets. The dice icons are there to allow for the playing of a handful of games that require doubles of specific ranks (for example the game Hanabi). In the original design, I just had multiples of certain ranks printed, but for the new design I wanted to not have to carry around duplicates of cards and to simply flip the cards over. Despite not wanting duplicate cards in the deck, some games still required multiple aces, which is why their are 3 of each. This included games like skull and lost cities. That is also why I removed the 1 card, since I felt it was a bit redundant. If you...See more

Dude, I really love where you were going with these cards. They've given me a lot of inspiration on a story I've been working on and I wondering if it was alright to use the majority of their concept for that story, as they fill a lot of the gaps I was having a problem with. The info on your site was really helpful in envisioning the technical stuff. It would be cool if you could let me know.

Hi Joe, You are absolutely welcome to reference the deck in your story, regardless of whether it's just conceptually or specifically. I'd love to read it when you're done. If it helps, the iconography and card back are free to use (you can download them on my site), so you are welcome to include the graphics if you planned on including any images in the story.

Publisher website says there are plans to expand to 12 suits. Any estimate yet on when that might be available? Would also like to see the number cards provided to higher than 12 as one of the games I use the Singularity decks for requires 24 cards per suit. Disappointed that is no longer available at this point.

Hi David. Sorry, I just saw your comments, otherwise I would have responded sooner. I'm working on updating the other suits. I have the star suit ready to go. My plan was to release the extra suits one at a time as I finish them. I honestly didn't know many people liked the extended rank cards, since I only sold a couple. I'd be happy to update them to the newest back. If you have any other ideas for the cards I'm interested in hearing it.

Thanks for the reply. The extended ranks are really what set these apart from other decks. Without those they are just another deck. I find I can get people to accept 4 different suits than the standard suits. But getting them to play with more than 4 suits has proved to be a challenge. People are just too trained to play with 4 suits. But has not been difficult, especially with the 5 and 6 player spades games I have developed additional number cards per suit has been an easy sell with the group. Once you have 4 suits in the new backs with extended rank numbered cards sufficient to give me 24 cards per suit I will definitely be pulling the trigger and buying. Cannot promise volume but am interested in purchasing at least two, possibly 4 to 6.

Hey David, The extended rank set has just been posted: http://www.drivethrucards.com/product/191478/The-Singularity-Deck--Earth-Extended-Ranks . It increases the number ranks up to 24. I hope you like it!

Without the associated extended ranks deck this deck is fairly worthless. It was that ability to take the numbered suits all the way to 20 that made the Singularity so flexible and powerful and made possible some fun customized games. Please bring it back. And while you are at it bring back the space deck and make all 3 in the singularity set with a new updated back so the decks are more difficult to get mixed up.

Have bought a few of these. Would have bought more. I am very disappointed however to find the companion deck that gave you extended cards in each suit going up to 20. This earth deck without that companion deck is of limited value.

Format
Original electronic
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.
