I recently found an interesting piece of games equipment. It is a deck of cards called Bar Games. This deck of cards has the rules for a number of games printed on each card. It also has some cards with forfeits for the losers of the game to perform. The games are fast and well suited to play at your local watering hole.
The Bar Games deck format seems like an interesting alternative to using a rules book. You could made your own custom deck with the rules for games you are interested in. It could be made small so that it does not take up much room when traveling. It could printed on card stock so it is durable and long lasting.
I am interested in hearing reader’s opinions on making a rules deck. If you have used a deck like this or have ideas how to make one, please write about it in the comments.
