All things being equal in a true Communist state, all cards are of equal value: The Deuce of Spuds.

This idea came to me on Friday during lunch. Now it's a full-blown deck of 21 sets of Old Maid (Old Capitalist) cards. THESE ARE COMPS!!! I know my typography sucks. I need to really work on these. I'm still hashing out the colorizing, but you can see where it's going. The original image was a wax pencil drawing of a "Soviet Hero".

I've been developing a number of different games for the dogBabies, Tikis and just plain old fun... Punch-Buggy came from these brain storming sessions. These are part of my broader approach to marketing thrust and turn-key items for production.
