While the King, Queen and Jack of Spades are different in strength in conventional poker, Samurai Poker Cards by FP Games contain many more characters that have specific powers. Divided by Cherry Blossom, Blood, Coins and Chopsticks, the different suits have a Ninja, a Geisha, a Diamyo and other faces that have specific powers like Origami and Meditation.

Samurai Poker Cards are inspired by the ambiance of ancient Japan. It is also a variation of poker, but includes a much longer list of face cards with different objectives and action abilities.

These cards are currently raising for funds on Kickstarter. Displayed are digital formats of what would be printed on linen card stock paper. The game is a refreshing and complex twist to traditional card games.
