Information on three-suited playing cards.
Or look more detail description of this game version.
The three-suited or three-colored version of game construction has original
mathematical set or gradation of card suits which exist independently of
other versions of playing cards which are grouped in four colors. Because this
constructive design or card set consist of three suits or colors as well.
In principle playing sets can also use five or six suits, but such
abundance of color designations makes card games difficult.
Three suits correspond to different colors of playing
cards which are marked as red, yellow, green.
The three-suited game version has three decks of playing cards, each of them
being comprised of three suits. And each suit is comprised of six numerical values
from 1 to 6. In other words each deck has 3x6=18 card sheets, and three decks are
comprised of 18x3=54 playing cards in total.
Players can distinguish playing cards of different decks by various
geometrical circles on backs and faces of sheets.
Numerical values of playing cards are multiplied by ten in the second deck, i.e. numbers are
followed by a zero. And also numerical values are multiplied by
hundred in the third deck, i.e. numbers are followed by double zeros.
This constructive feature allows the players or gamers to use playing
cards as if they have either equal or different values.
Proportional groups of colors and numerical values in each deck are
marked with points on backs and faces. Each deck is
comprised of three proportional game groups of 6 playing cards.
The three-suited playing cards can
be used if the number of players in games is a multiple of three according to the combinatorial construction.
Each player can play with own deck. Or three gamers can play with playing cards forming
three proportional group in one deck.
Also playing cards are marked with arrows showing orientation. So players can orient
own cards on the game board.
It is desirable to use the game board which has 9 columns and 6 rows.
Horizontal rows are notated by numbers which correspond to numerical values of playing
cards. Vertical columns are marked with different colors corresponding
to suits of playing cards.
The game board is comprised of 6x9=54 squares or rectangular sectors and three decks
have also 54 playing cards. Namely each playing card can be placed on a correspondent square.
The game board is comprised of alternating dark and light squares in
staggered rows. And 1/3 of squares or three verticals are highlighted, because this is necessary in rules
of some card games and intellectual puzzles.
Constructive design of three-suited playing cards are enjoyable in games if the number of players is
multiple of three. Namely. if there are 3-6-9 men who can have
equal chances to win if playing cards are open on the game board.
Three-suited version of this board game holds the patent on
invention RU2243800, and can be manufactured independently
from four-suited playing cards if somebody has interest in commercial manufacture.

entertaining, and also will draw attention of industrial manufacturers of board games!
