It is not a special card game. These are designed as a standard 52 card deck of the period.

It is not really a "game" as such. It is a memory aid to enable people to remember the constellations and the main stars that compose them. It is a memory system. I have recently become interested in these obscure emblem systems, having recently coloured Thomas Murner's Card Game of Logic, produced in the early 16th century which was a set of cards that would act as a memory aid to enable people to learn the rules and procedures of logic.
