Piecepack is a Game System developed by James Kyle. It was developed to be an open source game system modeled after a deck of playing cards. There are over one hundred games available for the game system. Some use only piecepack components, whereas others use additional components such as Icehouse Pieces, a deck of cards, an 8×8 board (chess board), or Hexpack components.
Graphics for piecepack can be freely downloaded, though there are vendors who produce sets for purchase.
