EPiC deck ...is an Expanded Playing Card deck suitable for prototyping new games or playing a wide variety of already available games.
deck is designed to look as similar as possible to a
traditional 52 card french deck (i.e. the same look and feel
of a standard poker deck). It is comprised of 288 cards total. One
is not expected to utilize all 288 cards at once, but rather build a
deck based upon a sub-set of cards particular to needs of the game to
be played. All EPiC deck card images are freely
available so one can print their own deck at home, or use an
online card printing company.
Suit colors for spades, clubs, hearts and diamonds match those found in a standard four-color poker deck:
