double Decktet

Selected Option:

The Decktet is a fabulous thing from another world, a six-suited deck of cards that can be used to play dozens of different games.

The classic Decktet was released a decade ago. Five years ago, the Decktet and its companion book were judged the best card game by Games Magazine. Now there's the Double Decktet, with twice the art and charm of the original.

This double deck is two copies of the Decktet, which you can use separately or together. One copy is the classic Decktet. The other copy is all-new the capital Decktet, which has cards with all the same suits but with brand new art and themes.

This is the first time the capital Decktet has ever been available!

What people are saying

The Decktet was deemed best card game in Games Magazine's 2013 Traditional Games 100: "The result is a plethora of innovative games that might lead keen card players to abandon the traditional 52-card deck."

Nate Straight writes: "Decktet... exists in a[n] other-worldly place, one that mixes Richard Scarry with Disney's Robin Hood with Tarot with Narnia with a million other weird and wonderful things."

Cyrus Kirby, Father Geek, calls it "an invaluable tool and an endless source of enjoyment."

What's for sale

This is two copies of the 45-card Decktet, both with the questing card back. One copy has the classic Decktet art and card names, the other copy has the brand-new capital Decktet art.

You also get several information and reference cards.

The free PDF contains more information and rules for five games: Adaman, Emu Ranchers, Jacynth, Nonesuch, and Thricewise.

My favorite game system by a mile. I love the structure of the deck, the double suited cards as well as the assymetrical distribution makes for a very unique set of cards. This makes for some very interesting trick taking games but it also works well [...]

I’m so impressed how the whole thing hangs together. The art reflects the suits and hints at a story behind the suit mechanisms. There are tools here for designing your own game, story telling elements for RPGs and several fully formed games beyond [...]

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.
