Complete set of Distant Early Warning (DEW) deck of playing cards, by media theorist Marshall McLuhan. A predecessor, if not inspiration for Brian Eno’s “Oblique Strategies” deck, it’s designed for you to pick a card when you need inspiration from a McLuhanesque thought.

There’s a lot of thought-provoking stuff here, but one caveat: a few of the cards reflect then-popular attitudes toward women, akin to the crudeness and not-so-latent sexism portrayed in Mad Men.
