K6T

Revisiting classic playing cards. A pretentious idea? No, simply a funny idea I had in mind for many years.

What's new with K6T?

  • There are 6 suits. All have a different color. Clubs are turning green and Diamonds are turning orange
  • The new suits are blue Moons and purple Stars. The Moons are footed as the Clubs and the Spades. The Stars have a sharp bottom as the Diamonds and the Hearts

  • In every suit, pips go from 1 to 12. So, 11 and 12 are added

  • There is a 0 too. But, a void card would be silly. 0's are also Jokers

  • Some playing cards decks have Aces, other have a 1. In K6T, there are both, 1's and Aces. 1 is worth less than 2, Ace is the strongest card of the suit

  • There is 6 different courts in every suit. They use the 6 Chess figures. The Jack (J) is the lowest, it is represented by a pawn. The King (K) is the strongest, only the Ace is above him. King is followed by he Queen (Q)
  • As in Tarot decks, a Knight or Cavalier (C) is the 4th court. The Cavalier ranks just above the Jack
  • Above the Cavalier there is the Bishop (B), then the Rook (R)

  • A full suit is then made of 20 cards:

0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-J-C-B-R-Q-K-A

 

Then, K6T is made of 120 cards, 6 suits of 20
