Description of playing cards in basic version.

Or look large description of basic version of game construction.

This game differs of traditional but essentially it is classical playing cards of four suits and sequential numbers of values. Suits are marked on playing cards with four colors. Red is hearts, yellow is diamonds, green is clubs, blue is spades. Values are marked with digital figures from 1 to 8.
Two decks or packs of basic version contains 32 playing cards in each. Namely four suits and eight values form 32 playing cards in each deck.
Two decks have presence or absence of dark circles and different shading on backs, and also presence or absence of dark frames on faces of playing cards. That allows two players to play by own decks and distinguish own playing cards. Besides playing cards can be distinguished by means of orienting arrows which can be pointed to opponents when players are on different sides of game board.
Zero is added to the values of one deck. As the result players have the identity and difference between values in different decks, so to say players can consider 1R one of red in first deck and 10R ten of red in the second like equal or as playing cards which difference in numerical designations is tenfold.
Each deck is distributed into proportional groups of 16 playing cards and equal mathematical proportions of suits and values, that is marked on faces and backs of playing card by crosses.
Two players can choose either two equivalent decks or two proportional groups out of one deck for playing interaction, and chances to win will be equal.
Additional distribution of one deck into four proportional groups of 8 playing cards in each is marked by 1, 2, 3, 4 points. Namely four players can play by cards of four proportional groups out of one deck, and chances to win will be equal.
Squares of the game board have rectangular forms which are similar to shapes of playing cards. Squares have the same color suits and numerical values as playing cards. The card suits correlate with verticals and are marked by colors. The card values correlate with horizontals and are marked at edges of the game board by numerical notations. And also games or puzzles can be realized along or across the game board and for that purpose the squares has more thin line marking with corresponding numerical notations.
General rules of card games or puzzles are the following.
Players distribute playing cards according to designations. According to which playing cards of two decks or proportional group differ. Then players put playing cards on the initial positions which are similar for states of chessmen. And then players manipulate own playing cards on squares of the game board. At that players have equal chances to win owing to the proportional distribution. And also each player has full information about the opponent's playing cards because of open disposition on the game board.
Players manipulate playing cards at the game board according to suits and values. And also depending on squares' values and suits. The playing cards can be replaced or shifted or moved on squares according to this or that variant of game rules. In all the description represents 162 different variants of games and puzzles which can be more complicated or can be simple. And different number of players can take part in card games.

The full version or big set can contain three game boards and three decks of playing cards and also jokers. Namely this card game can have minimal or maximal set where various game boards are realized, and decks of playing cards have various proportions of suits and values.
