The INWO Deck of the Week
Hello all, and welcome to the INWO Deck of the Week page! The Decks
of the Week are fully designed and strategized decks for Illuminati: New World Order.
The DotW concept was created by Aaron Curtis. Aaron chose the first 16
decks and then passed the baton to Brian Strassman, who chose the next
19 decks. I hope to continue in the fine style they have demonstrated.
To submit a deck for the Deck of the Week, e-mail it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. For my own
convenience, I'd appreciate it if you would put 'DotW' and the name of
your deck in the subject of your message. If you want to make my life
easier, you can submit your deck in HTML;
template.html is the file that I use as a template for DotW decks.
(Doing so will not affect your chances of being selected.)
Approximately fortnightly, I select a deck from those I've received
and post it to the INWO mailing list and the Usenet newsgroup
rec.games.trading-cards.misc. Decks not selected stay in contention
for future Deck of the Week honors.
I prefer decks that display new and cunning Illuminated schemes.
However, I also maintain an archive of classic decks and I solicit decks to be
