Decks for Mike’s Cards

This page has free original decks for use with the macOS version of Mike’s Cards. You must be a registered user of the program in order to use the decks! Click the eye to see a preview image. Click the macOS icon to download the deck, which must be decompressed with StuffIt Expander. I hope to refine these decks in the near future. My noncommercial use of characters created by others should not be construed as lack of respect for copyrights or trademarks.

Family Deck
Creator: James H. Vipond
Size: 1000 kilobytes

Instead of 10, jack, queen and king, this deck has a daughter, son, mother and father in each suit (details). Figures were made with Curious Labs Poser 4.03 and no photographs! In late June 2001, I made a different mother of spades, which makes the compressed file 12K larger but looks better. I hope Mike Sedore adds a feature to the next version of Mike’s Cards to allow the player to select indexes in different languages.

This deck is based on the television series which starred Tiffany Brissette. The card index font is Card Characters, which Harold Lohner based on the indexes of Bicycle® playing cards.

I now have a photograph of Harvey Korman on the jacks, from the CBS Web site. The pictures of Alexa Hamilton and Bob Denver were taken from the Invisiphiles Yahoo! Group. Note: This card set was compressed in SITX format and may not be usable with Mac OS 9.

“Our Gang Follies of 1982” deck in progress
Creator: James H. Vipond
Size: to be determined

I am developing a child-friendly deck featuring characters from Hanna-Barbera’s animated series of The Little Rascals. Character images are from the Our Gang Wikia Wiki. Unfortunately, omitting “.jpg” from the image filenames seems to break this project. Also visit my fan site for Patty Maloney, the voice of Darla Hood.

“New Era № 17” deck in progress
Creator: James H. Vipond
Size: to be determined

I am developing a new deck for Mike’s Cards, inspired in part by this Kickstarter project. The reference number 17 comes from the staggered grid of 17 pips on the pip cards (deuce through 10). Court cards will come later.
