Very cool. I'd love to pit a deck against one of yours.


What colors do you use?


It depends on the mood. I've got em in all colors and combinations. I've found Black and Green to work very well. Death and growth working together...gotta love the irony. Smile

I have a special all black deck I call Sengir Empire. It contains most of the Sengirs and tons of BAM! YOU'RE DEAD! spells. I favor the 4th and 5th editions. When I play using those cards, players lose concentration freaking out on the value of them and wondering what I'll throw next. Then...

BAM! YOU'RE DEAD! Laughing

I thought my white and blue deck was pretty good myself.

My son has a cool black red and green deck he uses.

I used to play, haven't had a card since urzas legacy however, started around tempest but acquired some further back. have a mean white deck, my black deck was stolen, a decent red deck and a sliver deck that will absolutely destroy your face, unless you have a very good total control blue deck with a portcullis, then its 50/50.

We like to get lit and play UNO ATTACK!

This game consists of a battery-operated machine that spits cards at you
if you must draw.

If you must draw, you press the yellow button on the machine.

If it spits cards, you keep 'em. If it doesn't - you live to go out the next
round!

Good times. Lots of new cards to understand too.

One card even lets you change hands with another player!

They've come a long way from a deck of 108.

We really enjoy it.

My family plays a lot of cribbage
I would like a SET deck


We must be related! Cribbage is huge in my family - we all learned as soon as we could add up to 15 and 31. My mom and I play Quiddler whenever we are together and she bought Sets for the kids for our last beach week - and they loved it!!

We like playing Setback and Tunk too.

They're both related Gin Rummy, except that in Setback the Jokers are
used, and you bid "tricks" (or "books") like in Spades.

Mille Bourne? Is that the one where you use the cards to take a road trip?
