|Welcome to Draw A Card! Whether you love to draw, play, or collect cards of any kind, this is the place to find them... but not without your help! Below is a list of the deviations we are currently accepting:|
Poker Playing Cards
When people think of cards, they most typically think of a standard 52 card deck made up of four suits ranging from 2 to Ace. Sometimes these decks include two Jokers that are used as wild cards in certain games. Poker cards are most noted for their pips including Spades, Clubs, Hearts, and Diamonds. These cards are so popular because they can be used to play numerous games such as Poker, Black Jack, Solitaire, War, Go Fish, and many others. Variations of the poker deck include the pinochle deck.
Tarot decks are made of 78 cards including four suits and the major arcana. The fourteen card suits include Pentacles, Wands, Cups, and Swords. Originally used as playing cards since the early 1400s, tarot cards were adopted by occultists and secret societies in the 18th and 19th centuries, creating their association with fortune telling and magic.
Role Playing Cards
Role playing card games are not bound by any number of cards per deck, which is part of what makes them collectible. Some cards are common while others vary in rarity, allowing each player to have a custom deck. Instead of suits, RPG cards often consist of characters or creatures, offensive and defensive usable objects, and multiple other specialty cards. The object of these games is often to increase levels though a point system. Examples of RPG card games include Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, and Munchkin.

Artworks must focus on cards to be accepted. A brief mentioning or instance of a playing card in a deviation may not be enough for acceptance. ACEOs, baseball cards, greeting cards, and other non-playable types of cards will not be accepted. If you are interested in submitting a type of card not mentioned above, please note this group.
