comment How are jokers colored in decks with more than two jokers?
Thanks, this is very helpful. I am trying to conceptualize jokers in a way that resolves them with the other cards and this is consistent with suits and rank... in this case two "ranks" of jokers in each "suit" for a total of four cards.

@aramis there are definitely variations of spades that differentiate the jokers (although none use more than two AFAIK). I want my deck to be as flexible as possible :)

@aramis I'm not entirely sure they need to be ranked, I just feel like they should, just in case. I'm not sure what game they'd need to be ranked in, except for trick-taking games. I guess the whoever-goes-first thing can kind of be explained if you treat each joker as being its own separate untrumpable trump suit. I just want to accommodate any set of rules basically.

comment How are jokers colored in decks with more than two jokers?
I guess I've only ever really used jokers in spades; I know in that case if two people throw jokers they both act as high trumps so one needs to outrank the other. Now that I think about it, though, I'm wondering if some decks have extra jokers as cards you can write on if you lose another card? I've never played with more than two jokers, I just assumed up until now that the extra ones were used in some game though.

Good enough for me. I'm going to alternate black/red and put little dots under the center of the card to represent their rank, no dots for the lowest, the most dots for the highest, unless anyone has a better suggestion. That should be pretty scalable.

Hmm actually I guess red should always outrank black since it's like a trump suit. I'm still not sure how I should distinguish their rank though.

Thanks, this is helpful. Do you remember if there was any way to tell which pair of red-black jokers outranked the other?

I had a deck of cheap playing cards I bought at the dollar store that had four jokers. I don't remember what they looked like now, though.

Ok, I just had a look around... you guys do use this site for regular old playing cards too, right?
