Card Throwing 101 at

AEG posted my first Maximum Throwdown designer diary. Here's the intro.

The game was simple but the challenge was fun
Maximum Throwdown started with a deck of standard playing cards. One night I started tossing playing cards one by one onto my dining room table, trying to see if they could land on each other. Within a few seconds it evolved into a mini-game where I would try to get the cards to cover the suit icons of the cards that were already on the table. And then within a few minutes the deck was split into 4 suits and I was playing a solo 4-player game of “cover the other players suits”. Each suit that was 100% uncovered gained a point at the end of the game.
