I thought it would be awesome to collect different playing cards from people around the world and make my own awesome set!

This kind of deck is called a "Franken Deck"

This will be a Series of Swaps, so when we are finished, we will have a deck of cards with all kinds of pictures on them from fellow Swappers from all over the world!

It does not matter when you join, just jump in!

We will go first with SPADES, then DIAMONDS, then CLUBS, then HEARTS, and then 2 JOKERS. I will start Round 4 after we do the Jokers. So, do not worry you will be able to complete a full deck!

We will go in order until we have 52 DIFFERENT cards. Which includes 2 DIFFERENT Jokers.

You will need at LEAST FOUR OR MORE decks of cards with designs on the other side that is just NOT the typical red or blue plain/Bicycle motif that you are willing to break up and send to others.

Several decks would be ideal as I know in Round #1 & #2, I had as partners, people repeat, and I was able to send them different cards each time.

*For this swap, you will send your partner a **RED JOKER from one deck and a BLACK JOKER from another deck***

Remember, these cards must be from DIFFERENT decks. This swap is for standard size OR Poker size playing cards. These are slightly different sizes so be forewarned you might get the smaller or larger size. But I think the mixture is a great thing when building a Franken Deck!

As we move along, note if you receive the same Swap partner again. If you have other broken card sets you can send them instead of the designs you already sent them, it would be appreciated. If you cannot send something different then contact ME and we will see how we can make sure they get something different

I will keep these Swaps running back-to-back. Sign-ups will always be every Thursday. You will have 2 weeks to send

If you cannot find the net Swap go to my Profile to see if I am Hosting the next ones yet.

I will ANGEL so swap with confidence!

So, 1 partner- a RED JOKER from one deck and a BLACK JOKER from another deck

Most of the jokers from my decks are not black or red. Is there another way to make sure I don’t get marked down for the ones i send?

AliCrafter 08/ 4/2021 #

That's a good question. I am wondering the same.

Surfersteph 08/ 6/2021 #

Same issue

Decks will usually have 2 different Jokers. They may have a red or all black. Sometimes the "red" one will have an elaborate design, the black one plain. Usually when you open a new deck the Jokers will be on opposite ends. The one on the Spade end usually is the "red" one. Just do your best in what you send. No one should rate down on the Jokers. If they do contact me immediately!

There's no "JOIN" button at the bottom of this group. I've been in all the other swaps for round 3, but it won't let me join this swap.

Lyndylou5 08/ 7/2021 #

Disregard my comment above. The button isn't there because I already joined this swap. Duh! Lol

Hyshu 08/ 8/2021 #

@Lyndylou5 too funny! Glad you have joined!

@Lyndylou5 , I have had a similar problem. I need to get out the door, but need to first find my phone. (the Phone I am talking to someone on right at the moment)

I have been in 4 of these swaps but concerned about signing up for more, I have contacted the coordinator and received no reply. Maybe you guys can answer my question. When you send, for example a 4❤s, can it be plain on the number side as long as the back of it isn't a normal playing card? Or does the side with the 4❤s have to have a unique picture. I bought 4 decks that the number side has different pictures because that's what I thought the coordinator meant, but I've received a few that were just plain on the number and suite side.. Thanks you anyone that can help.

ccmmsu 08/20/2021 #

@Fifthcorner Only the backs of the cards need to be unique (i.e. not the plain blue or red Bicycle design). The number side can be plain. It's extra cool if both sides are unique, though, so bonus points for that. :)

Thank you @ccmmsu for the info, I really appreciate your response!

@AZmom875 Your phone story is really funny. I know exactly what you mean! Ha ha
