TECH DECK -
The Tech Deck
is a modern version of classic playing cards bringing playing cards into the 21st century.
The deck has 54 cards in 4 domains/suits (Information, Science, Technology and Services) with 2 wild cards.
Each card represents something from those domains.
PEER TO PEER -
is a team deck-building game using the Tech Deck, a 21st century deck of playing cards.
Players divide into two teams and share a play deck and group hand.
