Luminaries are tarot-like cards in the game of Illimat that can cause dynamic changes in game play and delightful effects in players choices and scores.

Lets talk Wicked!

We have a new game on Kickstarter for just 10 more days called "Cool Cool Cool". It's a fast, fun, affirmative card game that literally slaps.

Changes in Illimat Second Edition: The Stars Suit

If you have played Illimat with some regularity, chances are your playing card deck looks something like ours. A five suited deck of lovingly worn cards - except for the almost pristine stars suit glaring back at you. 

This is, of course, because in the first edition rules of Illimat the stars suit is only used in four player games; and for many of us, Illimat is a two player staple. 

Friends, it's time for the star suits to shine.
