Finally getting around to posting these- A little while ago I did the illustrations for the Italian edition of Tichu for a company called uplay.it! For those unfamiliar with Tichu, itâ€™s a shedding game inspired from several Chinese card games including Big Two andÂ Zheng Shangyou. I believe it also goes by the name of Tai Pan. The deck is pretty much identical to a normal set of playing cards aside from the addition of four special cards (the dog, dragon, phoenix, and tichu), and difference in suits.
Anyway, I wasnâ€™t aware of the game prior to doing this, but I hear itâ€™s got somewhat of a cult following all over the world. If youâ€™re interested in picking up a copy, you can check it out here! The instruction manual is in Italian, but you can find the rules all over the interwebs (including the bottom of that page).Â
