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!

60 cards from 1-6. In the game each number has its own colour. I can not see why this has to be except for estetic reasons. So if you use 3 decks of cards, you can play this game (ace=1).

182. Board Game: Baha [Average Rating:5.70 Overall Rank:8703]
Ender Wiggins

mbmbmbmbmb
A trick taking game in the tradition of Whist. It closely resembles Hearts (including passing cards to your neighbour at the beginning of each hand), except that the penalty cards are not one suit (hearts), but the five highest cards in each suit, and give 1-5 penalty points each, with the highest card in the suit giving 5 penalty points. People who enjoy Hearts will likely enjoy Baha also!

Needed: a regular deck of cards without jokers, you can mark the highest cards in each suit with penalty points if desired: Ten (1), Jack (2), Queen (3), King (4), Ace (5).

You can play this with a normal set of cards.

Though it might take the fun out of it (the fun being looking at the pictures of a nice Happy Families set).

Use 2 decks of standard cards, match them up!

(And as an added bonus it is even less entertaining than this 'work of art' and about as difficult as falling off a tricycle...)
