Discordian card game?
« on: November 09, 2014, 11:33:00 pm »
I love card games, and I love Eris. I'm thinking about a Discordian card game (standard deck of 52 cards, possibly jokers). Do the Erisian Brethren have any ideas?
Hail Eris!

well, what kind of game did you have in mind? if its a standard 52 card deck, you could just swap out standard card images with Discordian ones (King is emperor Norton, Queen is Haruhi Suzumiya, Eris is ace or joker, etc) or you could make a Discordian tarot deck, which i think has been done somewhere before. Might be nice to see a set of Discordian Smash Up cards but good luck making that balanced.

Or just shrug and play Cards against Humanity. Works for me

This was beta tested at a meat up a few years ago.  Apparently, people had a lot of fun.

My friend had one called "this Card Game Sucks" or something. I never played it but she described the premise as you and your fellow players are trying to bust up this RP game with different types of players around it, The Overactor, the Rule Lawyer, The noob, etc. and your job was to play cards that cause these plyers, one by one to flip the table and go home. Sounds pretty Discordian to me.

I feel it should come with a 10 chapter long rule book.

At the end it should just read "You are not inclined to follow any of these rules."


Also, there already is one. 52 card pick up.
