Skat of Foxes Card Game

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 20, 2009, 8:54 AM

Before the reading, look here first: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skat_(ca…

skat - a popular card game in germany. yes, sKat. (speak "skaaht" ) - NO animal droppings. (which is scat). savvy? :P (now, if i find any other comment that is about animal droppings, i will go crying.) - please, show me some level... -.-



...

Recently, a card game was found in an old antiquarian bookshop...an utterly bizarre card game.

It was called "Skat of Foxes" - and it is presumed that it was printed during the victorian era in london. And. It once belonged to a very popular magican...

So, a pack of cards...a quite ordinary not really noteworthy pack of cards, you could say. Well...you couldn´t be more wrong then.

Because this game is one to play with caution. Great caution. These cards are dangerous...very dangerous...

Foxes, everywhere. You will search the heart without success - foxes in mouse leaping pose are taking its place.

Fox eyes are staring on these cards. Staring at the players...Staring and staring and staring...

Why does it exist? What are the motives for its existence? No one really knows...and no one will ever know. Because no one asked that magician who once owned these cards...only his death was grieved, his truly and utterly sorrowful death - it is said, that the magician's fox disappeared after the accident...and with it the game...

Until it appeared again...in today's time.


Skat of Foxes Card game by Culpeo-Fox :thumb144197891: Skat of Foxes Overview by Culpeo-Fox

the mysterious and long promised fox theme-card game, designed by me, featuring the characters of me and :iconskia:

the cards are of a high quality and actual cards ;) (so, the material is quite solid.) they come with a card case and a little black satin pouch. It contains 32 cards, from 7 to ace. You can play any game with this deck that includes 32 cards, it DOES NOT have to be Skat, you know. ;)

It will be ready for sale very soon.

the game can be purchased directly from me, with the price of 25 Euro.  (for international buyers 39.00 USD , international shipping already included.) - in case of interest, just send me a note or mail :) i do accept paypal for international payment.

that's it for now - the whole deck will be uploaded from time to time in my gallery.

EDIT:
Since everyone was asking for it, i started to work on a fox-themed pokerdeck some months ago. It won't be an addition to the existing Skatdeck, but a very own Pokerdeck, having a different style and stuff. Little preview (the cover)  what you can expect from it can be seen here: --> culpeo-fox.daportfolio.com/gal…

It will be ready for sale this year.

yours,
culpeo

Hi,

there is no Poker Deck available (since it is a Skat Deck). A full Poker Deck is in progress but it will still take a while to be completed and up for sale.

I'd love to get a deck of the fox cards. Paypal is fine, I live in the US. How do I pay you?
