Holes in your Hearts

...and diamonds ...and spades ...and clubs.
  [vote for,

Mexican bandits might look sinister peering over the top of their poker hand, but how much better would it be to be able to peer *through* your royal flush?

The centres of each club, heart, spade or diamond shape in this pack would be cut out, allowing players to study their cards *and* their opponents at the same time.

Transparent Playing Cards http://www.naturest...invisiblecards.html
One of many such packs - it's already possible to see through your hand. [DrCurry, Dec 21 2005]


       Not sure how this would work. Surely when you hold the cards, the holes would be offset.

       These are round holes, and only in the corner of the cards, right? Diamond, heart or whatever-shaped holes numbering one to ten might take some of the necessary surprise out of various games.

       zen_tom - good point. Yep, round holes in the top right hand corner would be more subtle, obviously. Maybe perforations would work so that you could totally see through the card?

       What accent is that [dentworth]? Riverboat spiv or Mumbai backstreet casino?   

       ..and where you been?

       Baked. I have seen transparent cards. The symbols appear as a white circle from the back but the rest of the card is clear....

       Hi [Consul], it was on a commercial for M&Ms [re:chocolate mess]. but I think it was supposed to be a southern cowboy accent.. will email you w/ explanation of the latter.
dentworth, Dec 21 2005

       that's not fair, we all want to know about your cowboy!

       ok, the general reason I've been busy is I got a puppy! It's a corgi, he's beautiful and very smart.   

       Merry Christmas to ME!
