OK everyone -- here is my first geeklisk. Please go easy on me.

Now most people are aware of the popular geeklist by Sonja of games playable with a standard deck of cards. A very useful list. At the risk of flames of piracy, I wanted to create a MASTER LIST of card games that are playable with a modified (or unmodified) STANDARD deck of cards. Modification rules include (but are not limited to):

Multiple decks of standard cards.

Marking up cards with *simple* symbols, numbers, or letters.

Addition of simple playing pieces (i.e. dominos, counters, poker chips, bits from easily aquired thrift-store games).

Variants of games playable with a single deck of cards.

Games playable with a 5-suit, 6-suit deck (i.e. rage, 6-nimmt, and similar geeklist items).


This list should NOT include the following:

(Standard card games using a single deck of cards)
***Update: as I've been adding games that require two decks, etc..., I've eliminated this restriction and am allowing ALL GAMES (EASILY) PLAYABLE WITH A STANDARD DECK OF CARDS.

The following restriction still applies:

Marking-up cards with large amounts of text (i.e. MtG) should NOT be listed.



Now a word about piracy. Please use this list as a reference to *try* out games that you may find appealing. Many of us waste a ton of money on games we have never played that we've seen on BGG that end up not beoing our cup-of-tea. This list will allow us to temporarily make some homemade versions of card games that look interesting *before* we go out and buy them. Am I making myself clear here? If you enjoy the game -- please, PLEASE support the designer.

Please add and please tip if you found this geeklist useful!

mbmbmbmbmb
A game about creating computer programs that have to destroy each other inside a small computer memory. Each suit represents one type of computer instructions: Move, Write, Jump, Erase. A pawn for each player marks the current instruction that player will execute, affecting other instructions on the board. After executing the instruction the player must move to an adjacent instruction, and if he can't his program is destroyed, losing the game.

An abstract game of perfect information and no random elements that can be played with a standard deck of cards per player or Icehouse pyramids or a piecepack set.

A brilliantt un-released "discard your cards to win by starting, or adding to, up to 3 discard piles, each of which must be biult with cards in sequential order of number. If you can't start or add to a pile you losethat hand and points" game by Knizia.

2P
Use Ace(1) to 7 cards

Quick, demanding, with depth and lots of fun.

Beginner Designers or Game Theorists can easily experiment with the rules for winning to see the way Knizia has modified the whole experience of the game by differentiating between outcome and payoff. Or in simple English; if you just count each hand as win or lose the game is nowhere near as much fun as when you score each hand played and have the winner as the first person to reach a certain score. (Knizia suggests 6, but frankly we are not smart enough to find fun at 6 so we play to 12)

This game has 104 numbercards from 1-13 (each 8 times) in 2 colours. If you use two decks and differentiate in colour (black and red), this game is playable without the 10 special cards (which don't change that much IMHO). For the 6 row placement cards, you could use just about anything.

Rivers is a tile-placement and set collection standard deck playing card game for two players. Players form distributaries off of the contested Blackjack River. Whenever a player forms a distributary with exactly 21 fish in it, it is scored. Once the Blackjack River has run dry, the player with the most points wins the game!

COMPONENTS
The game can be played with either the custom Rivers: The Playing Card Game deck consisting of 70 cards or a standard playing card deck (including Jokers) along with the 4s, 5s, 6s, and 7s from a second matching standard playing card deck.



The A-10s represent river segments. The face cards and Jokers represent Fishermen.
