    Description

    Scroker is a deck of 52 cards in 4 suits. Instead of a number, each card displays a letter. The letters are ranked within each suit(e.g., A < B < C, etc.), as are the suits (lemons < limes < peppers < animals). Many games can be played with the deck, including riffs on Solitaire, Rummy, Whist, and Poker.

    Anatomy:

    • Lemons
      • comprises the first 13 letters of the alphabet (A-M).
      • M is the highest-ranked card; A, the lowest.
      • refer to the cards as Sour A and Sour M, or simply A and M.
    • Limes
      • comprises the last 13 letters of the alphabet (N-Z).
      • Z is the highest-ranked card; N, the lowest.
      • refer to the cards as Sour N and Sour Z, or simply N and Z.
    • Chili Peppers
      • comprises the 5 pure vowels (A, E, I, O, U) in roughly their English usage distribution.
      • 1-chili U is the highest-ranked card; 1-chili A, the lowest.
    • Animals
      • comprises the 13 most common letters of the alphabet (A, D, E, I; L, M, N, O, P; R, S, T, U), represented by animals whose names start with the letter
      • These cards can be mnemonically grouped into a low, a middle, and a high group for quick assessment of the relative worth of a card within the suit: IDEA < LMNOP < RUST
      • Unicorn is the highest-ranked card; alligator, the lowest
    • Scrokers
      • two wild cards analogous to jokers

    To summarize the ranking of cards:
    Rank is determined first by suit, then by alphabetical order, then by spiciness.

    • [sour] A < B < C < D < E < F < G < H < I < J < K < L < M <
    • [sour] N < O < P < Q < R < S < T < U < V < W < X < Y < Z <
    • 1-chili A < 2-chili A < 3-chili A < 1-chili E < 2-chili E < 3-chili E < 4-chili E < 5-chili E < 1-chili I < 2-chili I < 1-chili O < 2-chili O < 1-chili U <
    • Alligator < Dog < Elephant < Insect < Lion < Moose < Newt < Owl < Pig < Rhinoceros < Snail < Turtle < Unicorn
