Actually, Blizzard could do something really unique. Anyone who has ever played the old (and I do mean old) game The Fools Errand knows that the game is based around the Tarot deck. Each card in the deck is its own puzzle, and one off the puzzles is a competative gambling type game where you take a mini deck and literally play against the computer four points. This could EASILLY be done with the Darkmoon cards. From what I saw of the Darkmoon cards, they are the equivelent to the minor arcana in tarot (swords, cups, pentacles & staves) but the mini game was played with the major arcana (death, tower, world, lovers, et al) which has never made an appearance in WoW.In fact, the collecting of the major arcana could be the source of a quest. "The last cards of the Darkmoon seer deck was stolen by the Murlocs around darkshire, kill them and collect the cards" Make them common, but semi-rare drop and possibly drop the same one over and over to encourage trading amongst players. Don't make any one card more rare then another, and when the players collect all of them, they get their own deck, which they can use to play the mini-game against someone.Now, even if the mini-game was the same rules as the one from Fools Errand, it would still be an incredible game that people could seemingly spend hours playing (I know I did in that game)In fact, I am gonna post this to the Blizzard suggestion forum too. They need a good idea. ;)
