oh/crop is an idea that reinvents playing card game designs with a sustainable focus. The completely biodegradable playing cards are based on a trick-taking card game by the name of 'Oh Hell' and as such, they may be planted in one's home garden. With soil, water and a little sun, the seed cards have the potential to grow into herbs for cooking, such as parsley, chives and basil.
The premise of the card game is that at the end of every match, all players except the winner are responsible of taking home a card and planting it. Frequently playing with the deck will make it become smaller—yet the game is designed to work even with a limited number of cards.
oh/crop is among one of the first Quickstarter projects to be launched on Kickstarter, which goes back to its roots by celebrating small, fun ideas.
