This deck has been designed according to the rules of the standard game: dealing 7 cards to each player with the object of making combinations of 3-4 or 7, for the highest score.

Since there are no 'number' cards, each of the picture cards in this pack have equal value.

The deck consists of 56 dards taken from 8 Shakespeare plays; 7 characters of each.

It is also divided in 8 suits. The characters comprising each suit are from different plays but who share psychological similarities.
