We have this great deck of cards called the Cathletics Playing Cards. Each of the numbered cards have elements of the Catechism and the face cards are St Joseph (the Jack), Mother Mary (the Queen), Jesus (the King!) and the Trinity (the Ace).
How awesome is our Faith!?
We boast that you can play regular card games with this deck, or use them as flashcards…or use them in a combination of the two (asking ‘Catholic’ questions with each play of the game).
For years…(as evident on page 193 of A Treasure Chest of Traditions for Catholic Families, I have wanted to create a Holy Rummoli game, using these Catholic cards.
Now, the Cathletics Playing Cards have their own set of suits reflecting the Trinity, but I think I can show the transformation of the black spade to the cross, and the red diamond to the Holy Spirit.
Now, I know that there are many out there, who won’t buy this deck of cards…
For the sake of Holy Rummoli! I suggest that you can use some Sharpies and write some Catholic stuff on a deck of dollar store cards. These are the basics as I see them:
3 of Clubs: the Trinity
5’s: all 5 Mysteries of the Rosary
6 of Diamonds: 6+6 Fruits of the Holy Spirit
(I know, tricky! =)
7 of Hearts : Virtues
7 of Diamonds: Gifts of the Holy Spirit
7 of Clubs: Sacraments
9 of Diamonds: Charisms of the Holy Spirit
10 of Hearts: Commandments
Q of Hearts: Immaculate Heart of Mary
K of Hearts: Sacred Heart of Jesus
K of Spades: King of the Cross
A of Clubs: the Trinity
Using a dollar store party platter, decide on which cards or combinations of cards will be most valuable, as regular Rummoli.
