About

Deck #1: A limited run of the this layout is now available. Complimentary copies of the demo deck will be given to backers who agree to pay the shipping costs. Moreover, Deck #1 will only have this one-time print. The Deck of Change will immediately start focusing on bringing Deck #2 to existence. 

Deck #2: This project was created primarily to complete the individual images for all cards in the deck. Right now, we only have 8 images completed.  

These cards might just bring out the most fun you can ever have with your  family, friends, and even strangers. Kids from age 7 to 107 can enjoy the different games for 1 to 16 players. The deck has 64 cards, 8 numbers (0-7), and 8 symbols (yin, bolt, arrow, axis, square, star, swirl, yang).

The deck is being noticed by gamers from all over. Yay!

The exciting part is that the Deck of Change is an open game system that can be used to create new games, new tools, and new stories. There are several ways the cards can be manipulated and organized. It can be divided into 2 equal halves (night and day), separated into 3 color categories (primary, secondary, B&W), grouped in 4s and 8s by number or by symbol, and combined in a myriad of ways that the 8x8 matrix can support. 

Backers who join the Delta Council will be among the privileged few who can contribute to the first official play book of The Deck of Change. Council members will be advocates and propagators of change by playing with the deck and developing their own games. The deck also provides a new platform for artists to showcase their own interpretations of the cards. 

This project includes 3 versions of the deck. They are practically the same deck. The main difference is in the visuals. Deck #1: The AiTiA is designed for functionality. Deck #2: The Gauntlet is designed for imagination featuring artwork by Patrick Enrique. And, Deck #3: The Cauldron has bigger cards designed for creativity and brainstorming.

Deck #3 provides a light and easy system of looking at decisions, planning, storytelling, and other creative endeavors. Each card in every Deck of Change include an aspect of change based on the wisdom of the ancient I-Ching, Yijing or Book of Changes adapted to reflect the current awareness levels of the millennium. Incisive questions are asked in change-related quests to help players find the path towards the answers they seek. 

The Cauldron will not provide the answers. Instead, it will provoke thoughtful questions that must be considered. The game rules for facilitating change arbitration sessions will be provided with the deck.

The rewards include worldwide shipping. AiTiA Games will allocate a portion of the pledge for additional costs to send The Deck of Change to Backers situated in less connected regions of Terra. Restrictions may apply, but we will exhaust all legal means to bring the decks and the joy of change into our players' lives.

The Deck of Change is an open game system. It was designed for fun and  meaning. It was conceptualized in the spirit of sharing and collaboration that is typical of all open projects. Images used in the decks are licensed from their respective artists and all rights remain with them. 

The target funding for this project will be used for the completion of the artwork and the production & shipping of the cards. Additional funds beyond the minimum will be used to build the AiTiA Games website, develop more games and fortify the foundations for the bigger game system called The Terran Journey. 

Supporting this project goes beyond the cards. Supporting this project means you believe that life is a great adventure game where you are the hero playing a character with quests to complete and challenges to overcome. The Deck of Change is but one special item that you can use to battle the monsters that prevent you from reaching your destiny. The success of this project means that other special items will be forged and made available to you and the other players as you level up in The Game of Real Life.

On March 4, 2011 Aristotle Bancale, The Game Master, pledged the rest of his life to developing fun games that create meaningful experiences that are shared. The Deck of Change is only the first in an ecology of games that will help you help your self thru empathic awareness and practical optimism.
