Games Alpha Game System Sudoku 2 Words Flash Cards About
If you are not quite sure what a game system is, let me give you a quick definition with an example. A game system is a set of components with which you can play multiple different games. A standard deck of 52 playing cards is a great example. You can play many different games with a standard deck of cards, including Poker, Rummy, Go Fish and Crazy Eights.

The Alpha Word Game System is a game system that is based on the original Alpha Playing Cards which was created in 1997. It consists of a deck of Alpha Playing Cards, a set of Alpha Tiles and a double set of Alpha Dice. The three components (the cards, tiles and dice) of the game system are by them-self a game system that can be used separately to play a variety games or combined to play more game. You can say it's a game system made up of game systems.

The Original Alpha Playing Cards


Picture of the original Alpha Playing Cards

The original Alpha Playing Cards were first conceived in 1994 and self-published in 1997 by tjgames (me).

The current deck of Alpha Playing Cards is the same as the original deck, except for the addition of one thing:

  • The new Alpha Playing Cards have the marked vowels, the original Alpha Playing Cards only had the semi-wild vowels; the idea for the marked vowels didn't come till several years after the first publication and wasn't added to the deck until the 2011 release of the Alpha Word Game System..

There will not be a reprint of the original Alpha Playing Cards, but there are still a few left. If you are interested in buying a deck you can purchase them via PayPal.

 You can still purchase the original Alpha Playing Cards for 7.45

The original deck of Alpha Playing Cards has won three awards
 Learning Magazine 2001 Teachers' Choice Award
 Parent to Parent 2006 Adding Wisdom Award
Creative Child Magazine 2006 Game of the Year Award.
