Wizards Garden Games The Domino Deck  

      Alpha Playing Cards are a deck of cards with the letters of the alphabet on them. The deck of 74 cards can be used to play a variety of games. There are some fun letter recognition games that everyone will enjoy, solitaire games for when you are alone, and of course word games that can be played with more than one person.

      One of the things that make Alpha Playing Cards unique is the vowel cards. There are two different vowels on each of the 30 cards. This makes it easier to get the most used letters of the alphabet (the vowels) into a small deck of cards. You can use either vowel on the card simply by rotating the card so the vowel you want is on top left. 

     The current list of games, rules for the games, and other information are below.
