Thanks Gecimen. I should have some time to work on something on Friday. Uni just started up so I'm busy as heck.

Haha sorry, I didn't see you were the challenge's submitter.

Well yes, the "visual design" must be original, as in you can not copy any exsiting card (as in every challenge) but you can make a new MtG card or an original king or queen for standard playing cards.

I disagree, the wording indicates that the "pack of card" itself should be new and original : Don't copy the layout and design rules of an existing game.

Any card game.

You can draw an "original design" Ace of Spades or a Magic or Yu-gi-oh like card. Whatever you like.

The only limit is that the card must be your design.

 It looks like their saying a whole new card game to me, And I think the canvas size is referring to the shape of the card.

 philippe jugnets favorite challenge ^^

By playing cards, do you mean the standard four sets of ace, spades, hearts and diamonds - or an entirely new card game?

Also, is the width a reference to something? (88 is an unusual number)
