Card Indoor Game - Reinventing - Maths Application

Can we further modify the Card Indoor Game?

Yes.

For example:

There are Total 52 Cards. There are also Two Joker cards supplied with the Card Pack.

13 Cards for Spades
13 Cards for Hearts
13 Cards for Diamonds
13 Cards for Clubs

Can we manufacture/create another 13 Cards for say Lotus, 13 Cards for Daffodil, 13 Cards for Sunflower, 13 Cards for Daisy
and modify the existing card games or Create new Games with this pack?

i.e Now in addition to the 52 cards there will be 13 Cards of Lotus, 13 Cards for Daffodil, 13 Cards for Sunflower, 13 Cards for Daisy.

Note : With this Modification there will be Total 104 Cards.

Now if a Bridge Game is played with Four Players every player will get 26 cards instead of 13 cards.

Notes
-------

1. We cannot add only 13 cards of lotus to existing cards because it will lead to 65 i.e 52 + 13. Now 65 cannot be divided evenly by 4
2. We cannot add only 13 cards of lotus and 13 cards for Daffodil to existing cards because it will lead to 78 i.e 52 + 26. Now 78 cannot be divided evenly by 4
3. We cannot add only 13 cards of lotus and 13 cards for Daffodil and 13 cards of Sunflower to existing cards because it will lead to 78 i.e 52 + 39. Now 91 cannot be divided evenly by 4
4. But We can add 13 cards of lotus and 13 cards for Daffodil and 13 cards of Sunflower and 13 cards of Daisy to existing cards because it will lead to i.e 52 + 52. Now 104 can be divided evenly by 4. So each player gets 26 cards.

Re: Card Indoor Game - Reinventing - Maths Application

The Reason I am not considering 3 is many of the card games are players with 1, 2 4, 8 players (except 1 which is odd number) i.e even players.

Bridge Game, an internationally renowned indoor game is played with 4 players. Two Players v/s Two Players (Opponents).

Note:

If we add another 52 cards to existing 52 cards, we get 104 cards.
Now 104 is divisible by 2, 4, 8.

I have forwarded my inputs and suggestions to World Bridge Federation.

Summary : Bridge game will be played with four players but instead of 52 cards, there will be 104 cards. Each player will receive 26 cards. All other rules remain the same in Bridge.

We have to manufacture another 52 cards, 13 Cards for say Lotus, 13 Cards for Daffodil, 13 Cards for Sunflower, 13 Cards for Daisy to existing 52 cards. So now the Deck is of 104 cards instead of 52 cards.

Re: Card Indoor Game - Reinventing - Maths Application

Email from Mark Newton, World Bridge Federation
-------------------------------------------------------------

I have to ask, why? Why the extra cards? More difficult to hold in your hands apart from anything else.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


My Reply to Mark
---------------------

Dear Mark

Thank you.

This could be the only Drawback !!!. i.e Holding 26 Cards instead of
13 cards with both hands, but it is not a serious drawback or limitation.

Advantages
--------------

1. Current Card Games apart from Bridge can be played with 1,2,4,8 Players
with a Deck of 104 Cards. All the Existing Card Games will have a Longer
Version i.e More Time to complete.

2. With this version, The Bridge Game will be a Longer Game, so require more strategic thinking from all players.

Note :

I Selected Flowers viz Lotus, Daffodil, Sunflower and Daisy.
One can take Fruits, Plant Names etc for the additional 52 cards

Example
----------

i.e.

13 cards of apple, 13 cards of jack fruit, 13 cards of oranges,13 cards of banana.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Re: Card Indoor Game - Reinventing - Maths Application

I was just wondering regarding the Design Patterns / Shapes of the Cards.

Spade -> Resembles a Leaf -> Card Color Black

Club -> Resembles a Tree -> Card Color Black

Heart -> Resembles a Human Heart Shape -> Card Color Red

Diamond -> Resembles a Diamond Shape -> Card Color Red

Now There are Similarities between Spade and Club Cards which are both Black in Color.
i.e Leaf is a Part of Tree.

But doesn't look like that there are Similarities between Heart and Diamond Cards which are both Red in Color.

Now following the same Design Pattern for the New Manufactured Cards i.e 52 in nos for

Lotus Card -> I will give color Red.
Daffodil Card -> I will give color Red.
Sunflower Card -> I will give color Black.
Daisy Card -> I will give color Black.

Now we have in total of 104 cards.


Spade -> Card Color Black

Heart -> Card Color Red

Diamond -> Card Color Red

Club -> Card Color Black

Lotus Card -> Card Color Black.

Daffodil Card -> Card Color Red.

Sunflower Card -> I will give color Red.

Daisy Card -> I will give color Black.

Apart, perhaps, from some computer games, hardly any new (or significantly modified) games of skill become popular with adults, especially if more than two players are needed.

Re: Card Indoor Game - Reinventing - Maths Application

As an avid gamer, I feel obligated to interject!
I won't bore you to death with the rules (or make you read them!), but consider a few of the games listed here:
http://boardgamegeek.com/browse/boardgame

(specifically, #2 Puerto Rico and #3 Agricola)

The only "luck" in these games is in which order the cards come out: 4 x 3 x 2 x 2 (x 1) = 48 different permutations in Agricola.
I'm not sure how to measure/quantify "luck", but have found that these games (I've played 14 of the top 17...) are quite interesting and usually boil down to mental acumen!

p.s. You can play a few of these at/through http://www.brettspielwelt.de/?nation=en
The browser client is SLOW the first time it loads.
