    Might be cheaper to buy them all glasses?

    Why not make your own with some crayons and 26 boxes of weetabix

    Maybe it would help if I told you what I wanted them for. I want to use them to play 'Play Your Cards Right' (Old TV game show with Bruce Forsyth) with my English students. So I want them to be around the same size as an ipad.
    Yesterday was open day at school. Besides stalls being run by students and displays from local universities, market traders were also selling stuff. One guy was openly selling packs of playing cards to the students.
    Do not walk beside me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me for I may not follow. Just pretty much leave me the fuck alone!

    From a managerial point of view, why not get 52 students to make a card each as homework.

    Unique deck, and you can spend the money on beer and loose women

    Who said anything about gambling? It's a game to practice numbers, questions, answers, and comparatives.
    No-one is going to be placing bets.

    Buy some different coloured 'Future Board' and make some cards or get the students to finish them off with numbers and clubs/spades etc. It's easy to cut, cheap, and the kids will love it.

    These cards seem to be more trouble than they are worth.

    Why not just have a game of pitch and toss?

    OOOH! You're so much better than last week's audience.

    Oi! Somchai, get your hands out of your pockets. No tossing in the classroom please.

    didnt the Pattaya Bridge club say same ?

    Look, great teaching idea, wrong country to try it in. You only need one dumb administrator or parent and you'll be in all sorts of trouble.

    Here is a link claiming to be a PDF of oversize playing cards.

    52 pages

    1 page per card

    Just print them using a colour printer

    The download for PC is an .exe rather than .pdf or .ppt (self executing PPT maybe) but seems not to be a dodgy site

    Printable Oversized Playing Cards ? Download the free PDF - Teachnet.com

    May as well go the whole hog and take a couple of coyotes into school

    Dunno how this'll go down in the staff room though.
