weighted playing cards

so that they stay put

if you have ever played cards outdoors on a beautiful, sunny, but slightly windy day, then you know how easy it is for the cards to be blown away by the ever-present wind.

with weighted playing cards, this isn't a problem. these cards are made from your favourite heavy metal (i'll take platinum!) and stay exactly where they have been placed on the table.

just don't keep the plutonium version in your pocket!

       Some assistance with shuffeling would be nice too. I'd like aluminum, but I'm afraid it still woldn't be heavy enough to help.

       I saw Penn & Teller do a card trick with weighty cards. But then, their cards were about a meter tall, made of aluminum diamond plate and were shuffled via forklift, so that probably doesn't count toward this idea existing already.

       I'm very surprised this isn't baked. It definitely should be!

       Shuffling the magnets would be a chore.
