I'm reading this in a New Zealand accent. "Hey bro, let's compare decks, we might be able to swap something"
Because of the fact that Spud started this whole game, I bet he has a bigger deck than all of us. I wonder if his kilt has pockets or if he hides his deck under his kilt? :?

Yes, that's exactly what you do! Not only can you, you have to. One band member from each card.

5. ...each player...indicates who from each card is in their band, what that person's role is in the band, i.e., drummer...

Oh, I'm holding something. But you know I never play with a full deck...
Some deck is better than no deck at all. :P
If we played at sea, then it'd be 'All Hands on Deck'. Which might pull up some interesting imagery.

dre, I think three letters were not functioning correctly when you made your "need" list. Maybe your batteries are getting low on your wireless alphabet number plastic cube clicky pushy board thingy.

Full deck. Excellent!

There's a line of text missing from the Homesick Elephant card. It should say "Cut It Out fight" at the end. Was that a mistake on my part?

did you see a preview of your card with the word SUBMITTED stamped across it?
And BTW, no one has missed the boat. The Full deck will continue to grow.

No, it's a code issue between php and iMagick. I can't figure out how to deal with the quotes. I think I am on to something, though, so I will use this one to test it.

There are better libraries to use, such as gd. I think the imagemagick library just shells out to the 'convert' tool, which means things like quotes never work right.

It says "Madison, Wisconson" on my card. Wisconsin should be spelled "Wisconsin".

I did not see that.
I must have done it wrong.
EDIT: okay found the right place to go. Saw "SUBMITTED" then I noticed my Super Power was too wordy, so I did it again and saw "Submitted" again. So ignore the 1st one. Sorry. Thanks!

So your proposed solution to this relatively minor problem is to start over? Maybe if I were getting paid to do this. Hourly. As it is, I seek the path of least resistance. Since two single quotes look exactly like a double quote in the font I am using, simply parsing all input strings to convert double quotes to two singles does the job quite nicely. I know that wouldn't fly in production software, but this is a one-off. BTW, I originally wrote this in gd, but ran into issues with the gray alpha bar, as I recall...

I know, I know… "And to solve that one minor problem, you started over?"

No problem, Glennny. New submissions overwrite old ones.

Works for me. Replacing " with \" would probably also work.
I know that wouldn't fly in production software,
I've seen worse.
