Atari Playing Cards: I’Ve Got Trip 8s of Asteroids, How ‘Bout You?

by Paul Strauss

If you’ve got fond memories of the old Atari 2600 system, these Atari-inspired playing cards might be just up your alley.

Each card in these decks is bedecked with Atari imagery, and is the perfect gift for the retro Atari fan in your life. The way the cards are designed, each suit is represented by a game: Diamonds = Breakout, Hearts = Asteroids, Spades = Centipede, Clubs = Millipede.

Notice how the number of objects from the game corresponds with the number on the card. So the 9 of Spades actually has 9 centipede and mushroom pieces.

Face cards are represented with various Atari iconography instead of the games themselves. I really wish they had made E.T. the Joker card, though. At least for once the 2600 has better graphics than Intellivision.

You can grab a deck over at NCSX for $6.50 (USD).
