Chroma Cards are a uniquely designed set of cards used to play many different games. Part of the design of these cards takes into consideration individuals that have difficulty recognizing color difference, or when games played in areas that are poorly lit. Simply play some of the many games that have already been published, or use your imagination to invent your own games!
These represent the card’s visual identity. In this example you’re seeing a Red Pentagon. Some cards, such as the Action cards, don’t have pips in the corners.
The shape of the pips are also sometimes referred to as the suit, while the colors have numerical values based on the number of circles in the row of mini pips.
There are 2 rows of mini pips. The first row is made up of circles. The circles are related to the color of the cards. This can help players who have difficulty recognizing colors. The second row is made of diamonds and is related to the shapes on the cards.
