A game system is collection of useful objects that can be used to play a variety of games. A deck of playing cards is one example of a game system, since it can be used to play hundreds of different card games (such as Poker, Bridge, Klondike Solitaire, and 52 Pickup). By adding a few other pieces of equipment (such as chips, dice, and spoons) an even larger number of games can be played. Several game systems together, as well as some other random bits, can make a great generic gaming kit. The primary focus of this website is the Icehouse game system, although some games may also require playing cards, tarot cards, or a piecepack set.
