Archetype Cards

Sale price $12.99 Regular price $19.99

Teach archetypes in a fun and engaging way! Archetypes are reoccurring patterns and character types  that appear in all kinds of stories—mythology, classic literature, popular films, and even video games—often in connection with Joseph Campbell’s concept of the Hero’s Journey. Designed for both the classroom and casual play, this deck features eye-popping illustrations and descriptions for 20 different archetypes. Draw on your background knowledge of literature and media to play five different games detailed on the accompanying rulesheet.

The cards come with their own hard plastic protective case! Plus FREE SHIPPING when you spend $25 or more on your total order.
