Deck-A-Dungeon: Atypical poker deck

Deck-A-dungeon is an unusual poker deck that you can use to make role-playing maps.

Each deck has 67 playing cards. There are the 54 card that make up the 4 regular poker suits, Spades, Hearts, Clubs, & Diamonds (plus 2 joker cards). The deck also includes AN ADDITIONAL 5TH suit called “Ane” for not only more gameplay options but also map part variations

The grid on each playing card is 18mm so you can use coins for impromptu role-playing sessions or for planning future campaigns.


While my Deck-a-Dungeon is an unusual poker deck that provides blank map-parts that can be played over with tokens or used for planning maps, I do want to share some similarly functioning decks that are made by other people. πŸ—£πŸ“£
