U.S. Regime Change Playing Cards


SKU: 291192899X Category:


In April 2003, the Pentagon issued a deck of playing cards featuring the nastiest, most unreconstructable Baathists in the whole of Iraq. One week later, the Yes Men announced their own deck of cards-featuring the nastiest, most unreconstructable criminals in the world! Now, just in time for the start of the 2004 US election cycle, the Yes Men have released a brand-new, information-crammed “52 most wanted” deck. Use these cards to play any card game at all-poker, gin rummy, hearts, etc. Instead of four of a kind or a sequence of four, look for four (or more) cards that refer to each other (e.g. Donald Rumsfeld, Saddam Hussein, George Schultz and Riley Bechtel). You must describe these interrelationships as you lay the cards down; using an intermediate (absent) card to relate two cards gets you an extra 1/2 point. You can also use the cards to play the Yes Men’s special new card game called “Try ’em,” for which these cards were designed. These cards have been donated to support the legal defense efforts for Steve Kurtz and the Critical Art Ensemble.
