Ace of Diamonds, Coffin of Pine
"The deck of fate is whimsically shuffled," Bulgakov once said of the inscrutability of the intricacies of fate. "What is our life? A game!" - argued the opera The Queen of Spades. As long as playing cards have existed, people have looked for hidden meanings and messages in them. Can a card game be more than that? Yes. It can. A prisoner's survival in a concentration camp is a game with death. Morally disarming the enemy is a game with secret, powerful trump cards. Making a small ideological "bomb" in a besieged city is a game of overcoming monstrous obstacles. Our team have picked up three unique decks of anti-fascist cards, each with its own striking story behind it. A story of a difficult game, a perfect combination, and an unconditional win by a landslide.
