The Solar Republic Card game is a beautifully designed space card game based on the standard deck 52-card French-suited playing cards. However, instead of Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts, and Spades, there's the Sun, planets, and moons of our Solar System. These celestial bodies are represented as astronomical symbols of antiquity and individually designed symbols based on antiquity symbols for moons discovered over the past century.
