Pharmacy Playing Cards contain the usual set of 52 playing cards comprising four suits of 13 cards each and two lovable jokers (in the guise of skeletons to remind us of what we are made and that life is short – play more). You can play any game that you could with a standard set of playing cards so it’s up to you really. Whatever you play you’ll be reminded of the amazing systems that make up our bodies and the medicines that we use to help keep them ship shape and shine.
