Introducing the Index Card RPG THINK DECK!

A 54 card deck you shuffle, draw, and interpret to create tabletop content! 

Use your intuitive knowledge of suits and ranks, along with the how-to PDF and card titles every GM will recognize. You'll be innovating and creating in no time, with a simple card draw! 

If you're overseas, or a die-hard DIY creator, choose the super-affordable PDF only, and print-cut-sleeve your own deck. Go all in for just 12.50$ and get premium poker cards in a durable tuck box.

I've been designing rooms, monsters, and adventures with a deck of cards for years, but THINK DECK takes the idea of creative chance to a new level, including TIMER and TARGET cards for ICRPG GM's looking for a visually rich table aid as well as creative kick.

Get out your journal, form a question in your mind, and let THINK DECK show the way!

I would pay the price of another full set for just for eight cards. The matching Aces and Deuces of each set so they match to my other ICRPG deck.

How much overlap is there between this and the Essentials Deck? Has the latter superseded this?

I would say there is no overlap at all. Card for card there is no overlap.

At a concept level there is no overlap as well. The ICRPH THINK DECK is a poker deck mixed with some quality of life cards that have concepts, phrases, and ideas on the cards.

If you need a new room, foe, idea, greater concept for the dungeon that night draw from the deck.

For example I could draw from the deck and it says "Lessor Foe"; The card itself is not a foe, it doesn't really depict a creature to fight you would want to use a monster from ICRPG Essentials Deck: Monsters or your own Lessor Foe monster.

The ICRPG Essentials Deck has artwork used for designing rooms, doorways, boxes, rivers, etc... So if you drew a "Greater Obstacle" from the ICRPG THINK DECK you would want to pick an obstacle from the ICRPG Essentials Deck.

As a huge Runehammer fan, I really love the Think Deck and everything it represents.

@Brandon G.:
Could you please check page 13? The "Doorway" is bigger than the other cards and the overall alignment is not good (uneven spacing).
On page 19 "Allies" and "Trickster Foe" are fused together.
On page 9 the "10" and the "18" are fused together as well.

I would really like to print them out and put the pages under a cutter, which isn't easy due to the upper mentioned points.
Thank you so much in advance and best regards!

Love it... However - the file itself suffers from stuttering when quickly scrolling through. (Or even slowly.)
It just tends to make a quick 'stop' at each new 'page'.
* I have the other pdfs from Runhammer (Worlds, etc. - a lot larger in size, both file and content,) and they are fine.
... using Windows X (happens in both Edge and Chrome browsers)

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
