Rainbow Deck suited piecepack PnP

The Rainbow Deck by Chen Changcai is a cardgame system that can be used to play hundreds of games. It has 12 suits divided by 6 suit symbols with each suit symbol having a dark and light color associated with it. It is straightforward to make six-suited piecepacks to use as an accessory to the Rainbow Deck. The Rainbow Deck itself is licensed under a CC BY-SA-NC license but Chen Changcai was kind enough to give me permission to create Rainbow Deck suited piecepacks under a CC BY-SA 4.0 license requesting that I please provide a link back to his Rainbow Deck BoardGameGeek page.

Since dark suits show up best on a light background and light suits show up best on a dark background we'll make two 6-suited piecepacks that do just that (note that this means that these two Rainbow Deck suited piecepacks will be dual piecepacks).

rainbow1 <- list(suit_text = "♥,★,♣,♦,♛,♠,꩜",
    rank_fontfamily = "Noto Sans",
    suit_fontfamily = paste0(paste(rep("Noto Sans Symbols", 6), collapse=","), ",Noto Sans Cham"),
    suit_cex = "1,1,1,1,0.85,1,0.9",
    suit_color = "#ff0000,#ffc000,#008000,#0000ff,#800080,#000000,white",
    border_color = "grey",
    background_color.unsuited = "sienna")
