The Youth - Joker - "City High Anthem" by City High

Society 10

My game is called Society 10. The deck is set up like a regular deck of cards. There are four different suites with color distinctions. The colors represent a stereo type of race colors, with yellow representing Asian, white representing Caucasian, brown representing African Americans and red representing other. There are three face cards in each suite, with a High Class card replacing the traditional king, a Middle Class card replacing the traditional queen and a lower class card replacing the traditional jack. There cards ranging from 2-10 in every suite. Each suite has one Ace which is denoted as a homeless card, and there are two jokers which do not have a designated suite as they are defined as the young and the elderly. My ultimate intention with this game was to create a game that made a comment on society, however, the designing process of the cards lead combined with the game itself prevented the message I had in mind from being translated. I focused heavily one creating the face cards, the jokers and the ace. They were drawn digitally on the computer using a tablet, colored and shaded using corel painter and photoshop and then text was added using paint shop pro 7. The text on each card is a corresponding song to represent a particular sentiment with each card. Important words are in a larger font or accented with bold or italics. For example the High Class card has "you can't beat me" in legable font to represent that they are the most powerful card within the deck.
