A fifth suit called "The Stars", every suit has its own color (Spades are black, Clubs are green, Diamonds are yellow, Hearts are red and Stars are blue), the Number One card is back (always the weakest) and we still have the Ace whose symbol has been enlarged (always the strongest), a new face card: The Princess (its position in the sequence is between the Jack and the Queen), and the deck features 5 different Jokers associated with every suit. The 5D deck totals 80 cards, which allows for playing all traditional card games while multiplying the variations. Several new games have been created, including Selection. Selectioncan be played with 1 to 7 players. Players have to select hands that match the categories on the playing sheet. The game takes about 25 minutes to play.
