The Cards of Coppertwaddle, Their Origins and Strategies Explained


The COPPERTWADDLE deck contains a total of 55 cards divided into three distinct groups (or Natures); these are the Threlms, Favours, and Declarations. In addition, the cards are collectively grouped according to a predetermined hierarchy called the Sequence.

There is a secret message hidden within the form and order of the Coppertwaddle cards, first appearing in the late 17th Century, which can be deciphered using the Abbot's Puzzle.
