Makin' a card game: CRC week 5, update 1

This week's challenge is pretty straight forward. I'm going to make a card game. With a standard set of playing cards.

This is seems like a simple challenge. Playing cards are so familiar and everyone knows at least 1 game to play with them. Flavor is non-existent. It will be all about the mechanics.

I know it won't actually be simple. These simple seeming games are always the hardest to design. The space is so throughly explored that it is hard to find something interesting to do in it. It is hard for all of the reasons that it seems easy.

So that is it! I'm makin' a card game. Also, if this goes badly, I'm blaming Wahrk. It was totally his idea.
