"Minim" is a deck of regulation playing cards that considers how much "design" you can take away while still maintaining a playable deck. Simple geometric symbols are reductive versions of hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades. While it is necessary to mark the backs of regulation cards, we've done so with minimal diagonal lines instead of the typical ornamental graphics.
