[KARA] 5 suit playing cards = KARDS
« on: 2011-Apr-27 01:09 »
Inspired by 5-member Super Girl group KARA, I created a 60-card deck of playing cards consisting of 5-suits and 12 ranks. The 12 ranks are 1 to 9 and three face cards, which are in order {N}yeo, {W}ang, and {S}hin.

Play KARA 5 Poker at http://www.shenafu.com/kara/kanvas.html (requires HTML5 browser).

It's also available as an Android app: KARA 5 Poker.
or scan QR code:

Play KARA 5 Elements on Android (solitaire game that won't work with 4-suited decks.)

Sample Poker Hand using KARDS (changes every hour):

Idol = suit
Pretty girl = face card
Nyeo = Female
Wang = Royalty
Shin = Divine
Kamilia = joker
Lupin = trump

poKARA = poker
Ship = pair
2 ship = two pair
Trips = three of a kind
Quads = four of a kind
KARA 5 = five of a kind
Mr. = straight
Honey = flush
Mr. Honey = straight flush
Umbrella = full house/boat (upside down boat)
Jump card = runt / no pair / high card
Rider = 4 of one suit
Cupid = 3 of one suit, 2 of a second suit (hand has only 2 suits)
Mr. Rider, Mr. Cupid
Cupid 2 ship

KARA = one of each idol; can be a modifier if a 5-card hand consists of one of each idol
KARA ship = single pair where each idol appears
KARA 2-ship = two pair where each idol appears
KARA Trips = three of a kind where each idol appears
KARA Quads = four of a kind where each idol appears
KARA 5 = five of a kind (by definition, each idol must appear)
KARA Mr. = straight where each idol appears
KARA Umbrella = full house where each idol appears

Design concepts:
  • Each idol should be distinguished by a different color. For instance, Gyuri could be gold, Seungyeon blue, Nicole black, Hara red, and Jiyoung green.
  • Idol symbols are tiny faces of that idol or other distinguishing feature. Gyuri is gold mirror, Seungyeon is blue hedgehog, Nicole is black drumstick, Hara is red heart, Jiyoung is green Q-tip.
  • Pretty girl cards (face cards) are depicted by large images of individual members, ideally matching them by value. For instance, Goddess cards are taken from Urakara; Queen cards from Lupin; Princess from Wanna.
  • Pips on numeric cards are arranged into the Greek letters that form the words "KARA" and "KAMILIA":
    2 = I; 3 = L; 4 = R; 5 = X; 6 = A; 7 = M; 8 = K

Completed games for Android:
KARA 5 Poker (pokara was already trademarked).
KARA 5 Elements (5-suit solitaire)

Games with rules only:
Lupin (cf. Euchre and Bridge).
Kartel (Big 2 meets Elements).
