Six Generations playing cards modeled after the structure of a family tree - a man and a woman, two sets of parents, four sets of grandparents, eight sets of great grandparents, and sixteen sets of great-great grandparents.
This democratic card deck abolishes the structure of the French Pack that uses Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces, and is based on the inventor's idea of creating a deck of family members in multiple generations. Each generation is doubled in the amount of family members, thereby making a deck of 64, which comes closest to the standard French Pack while being true to a balanced family tree.
The deck is ranking by not using numbers only, from one to six, but additionally, using matching costumes for family couples that are in the different suits. The oldest, sixth generation came to the United States from around Europe, while the different family members have particular names corresponding the country they came from, and the time periods.
The deck is supposed to be more entertaining than the standard French Pack, while still being playable at all of the standard casino table games. For players who are skeptical, seeing these cards in a casino is actually not such a long shot.
Six Generations Card Games is not as widely known as regular card games like poker. Regular Poker has gained a lot of popularity during the past couple of years. Especially with the rising of the WSOP (World Series of Poker) as a very popular worldwide
televised event. There are some similarities though between Gen Poker and for instance Draw Poker.
