pool cards

Play cards in the pool

Have you ever been on vacation and wanted to play cards in the hot-tub? (without the jets on). A while back some friends and I found out that standard laminate cards last a /while/ in water.

What would be even greater is POOL CARDS! These things are designed to be used in the water. They float. They don't disintegrate. If you set one slightly on top of another, they stick together, so you can lay down chains of cards and not have them drift apart.

These are *not* pool cards. It says 'for use on hot-tub *tray*' [lawpoop, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       [waugs] Your waterproof playing cards are just that - waterproof playing cards. They are still designed for table-top use. POOL CARDS are designed to be set right on the water's surface.   

       You really should do more research before you post. This is, after all, the halfbakery.

       I have enough trouble swimming past drunken backstrokers and slowpoke dogpaddlers without dodging someone's solitaire game at the same time.

       [phundug] I think you secretly *like* bumping into people in the pool. ;)

       Hm. Obviously, you can't have a stack of POOL CARDS floating on the water. You would have to shuffle in your hands.   

       So you have two options: 1. Learn the 'bridge' to re-combine the two sets in your hands. 2. Just use the shuffling technique, without any card flapping.   

       Again, I don't know the correct terminology for these things, so bear with me.
