Deck of Justice

For a big section of my early childhood I played card games. I would’t say I grew up playing card games, as regular readers will be aware I spent most of my childhood, from about age 10 onward, on my Spectrum. But the rest of my family loves card games, so we had loads of them. I collected and played Top Trumps, I loved playing a game called Whot. My personal favourite, a game called Smuggle, saw players lying to fellow players in an attempt to sneak contraband past airport security – I was 8 when we got this and I though lying was the best thing ever! Card games were a big part of my early childhood.

So when I heard that a card game was in development which centred around 80s celebs having a big fight, you don’t need to get very far into the sales pitch before you would hear me shouting “I’M IN!”

The Deck of Justice is a ridiculously frantic, yet highly tactical, hand-drawn card game for 1-6 players. Players take turns striking one another (with fully loaded heroes, armored vehicles and bulging biceps) in a series of quick cowboy standoffs until there is only one survivor.

I am notoriously bad at explaining rules of games, to the point where even my own kids blank me when I get too enthused, so please excuse the lack of overview. Instead, check out the official rules : Deck of Justice Rules

Their Kickstarter video is also superb:

For £20 you get the full core deck, printed on high quality card, along with access to a Print and Play version which you can download and print straight away.

Even better, if you just want the Print and Play version where you get the master PDFs to print your own deck, the price is just £10.

(I was hoping to get a full review online this week, but real life seems to have a habit of not allowing enough time to do the fun things – sorry, I’ll do one as soon as I am able!)
