Card of the day

Every night, at about midnight, we pop in and display the front of a new card. You get till 8pm that night to test your card knowledge, just for fun. The cards on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday are clues to the week`s theme, which provides the subject of the rest of the cards of the week. And if any reader would like to send us a jpeg scan of the front and the back of an unusual card which is relevant to that theme, or any information, please do - the email address is webmaster@card-world.co.uk And you can see all the cards of that week, plus read what we have discovered, or been told about them, in our weekly newsletter, which is uploaded, for all visitors to read, free of charge, every Saturday morning.
