  • Mood:

Here's a question...

So, without going into details, I'm looking at possibly going to prison (again) for a short bit. I'd like to be able to run some stuff inside, but I know a lot of times, there's problems doing that - sometimes religious probs from the chaplains, sometimes b/c dice related stuff are against the rules for fear they'd be used for gambling...

So, what I'm wondering... what games out there use playing cards instead of dice? Or other cards (cards wouldn't be allowed to be sent in, I'm sure, but with a list of the cards and the properties, fascimiles could be made...)

Alternately, does anyone know of homebrew rules for using cards with any established dice-system? If so, where might I find them?

Edit: Last time, we used a spinner, but being it was federal prison, which tends to be more slack in rules sometimes, that wasn't much of a problem.

I know I could just substitute cards of the appropriate value for dice in a d20 game, but that would be pretty laborious in combat. Same with a storyteller/ing game, just have piles of cards 1-10...

Another option is to have #s on pieces of paper and draw them from a box.

But what I'm really looking for is an accessible game that uses playing cards (or simply made other cards, though that brings in the potential contraband issues....) for the rules.

Or a system someone devised (other than a straight pile of 4 cards for a d4, etc...) for a game. I'm open to all sorts of systems (b/c I don't know what, if anything, I'd be allowed to get.)
