"It is a novel idea and it is great fun to have a card with a tangram to cut out and play with – and another with some shapes to try to make."

Our new deck, Tangram Playing Cards
, is a beautiful tribute to one of the most popular dissection puzzles in the world. Used as entertainment as early as the Song Dynasty, these delightful shapes create a multitude of memorable designs.
Each card back features 2 koi fish swimming in an aqua blue green pool of geometric shapes. The trailing water is a perfect swirl for flourishing or a centerpiece for predictions.
The custom pips and court cards creatively utilize the Tangram shapes to create a unique design for each of the card faces.
The tuck features the traditional Tangram dissection puzzle in a diamond placed on a grey and white background, hovering over a horizon of green hues. The tuck side pays tribute to the Tangram puzzle known as THE SEVEN STONES OF WISDOM.
