This ColorCards pack illustrates the sequential nature of day-to-day events. The notion of 'one thing leading to another' is shown in a number of different ways using two-card sequences. The pairs are arranged in groups. Some effects are predictable and others happen by chance. Some are welcome, but others are troublesome or even dangerous. Within each group, simple sequences are followed by others that are more subtle or complex.
