The Joker Deck Project

Every deck of playing cards comes with a couple of cards that are misfits: you don't use them in games, there are no rules for them, and there's no use to keeping them.

Those cards are the Jokers.

Now, I'm seeking to create a deck of 52 Joker cards. Or possibly a Tarot deck of 78 Joker cards. Part of the charm of Jokers, though, is how individualized they are between decks, how different they look depending on the company that made the deck, and how you never know what to expect when you come across that card after you unwrap it.

So I don't want to just go out and buy 26 decks of cards and take the jokers out. Besides, that would be wasteful: that's a lot of cards wasted to make one deck.

Instead, I would like to receive the cards from people who have a wider variety of decks at their disposal and don't need (or don't want) their Joker cards.

So, if you have a couple of Jokers you're not using, please send them to the following address:

Michael J Dangler
PO Box 3264
Columbus, OH 43210

Please, only send those Jokers printed on cards: no ex-boyfriends, no 34 year-old kids who still live in your basement, and no Steve Miller CD's. . . though items inspired by or copying the general sentiment of the Joker card are welcome as well. I just don't know what I'd do with them.
