Sure, your can play poker, blackjack, and any card game on a computer. But when you already spend all day writing code, getting a break from staring at an LCD-backlit display starts to sound like a considerably more attractive proposition. So turn off the PC, hide the tablet, pocket the smartphone, and play a round of your favorite card game on the Code:Deck instead.
Described as “playing cards for developers,” it’s an erstwhile regular 52-card deck that you can use to play any regulation card game, build pyramids, or perform magic tricks. Except each of the card faces come emblazoned with a code excerpt in a specific programming language, serving as a constant reminder of your code geek status with every single hand that’s dealt.
Code:Deck is available now, priced at $10.
