Way back in 1983, I worked out an idea for a completely new and different card deck. I made a test-version and invented

a game to be played with these cards. I tried to sell the deck to game companies, but none showed any interest! In 2009, I worked out a completely new design with my good friend Peter Rijkhoff, after which, with help from Sjaak Griffioen, I published the cards myself under the name GALAXY. I have asked all game-inventors I know to do their best with these cards, but until now the reactions are sparse. I myself updated a game I had invented long ago, and gave it the name TWHIST.
