Inspired by 5-member Legendary Super Girl group KARA from South Korea, I created a 60-card deck of playing cards consisting of 5 suits and 12 ranks.
The 5 suits are:

  • Gyuri's gold mirror
  • Seungyeon's blue hedgehog
  • Nicole's black drumstick
  • Hara's red heart
  • Jiyoung's green Q-tip
The 12 ranks are:

  • values 2 to 8
  • four pretty girl cards, which are in order ?, ?, ?, ?
  • ?
Play KARA 5 card games, such as Poker, Lupin, and Green Queen, at KARA 5 KANVAS (requires HTML5 browser).

It's also available as an Android app: KARA 5 Poker.

Terminology:
[tables=vsv]
=Idol = suit
=Pretty girl = face card
=? = Lady
=? = Mistress
=? = Queen
=? = Goddess
=? = Alpha
=Kamilia = joker
=Lupin = trump

=poKARA = poker
=Ship = pair
=2 ship = two pair

=Quads = four of a kind
=KARA 5 = five of a kind
=Mr. = straight
=Honey = flush

=KARA = one of each idol; can be used as a modifier if a 5-card hand consists of one of each idol
=KARA ship = single pair where each idol appears
=KARA 2-ship = two pair where each idol appears
=KARA Trips = three of a kind where each idol appears

=KARA 5 = five of a kind (by definition, each idol must appear)
=KARA Mr. = straight where each idol appears

[/tables]

Design concepts:

  • Each idol is distinguished by a different color. Gyuri is gold, Seungyeon blue, Nicole black, Hara red, and Jiyoung green.
  • Idol symbols are tiny faces of that idol or other distinguishing feature. Gyuri is gold mirror, Seungyeon is blue hedgehog, Nicole is black drumstick, Hara is red heart, Jiyoung is green Q-tip.
  • Pretty girl cards (face cards) are depicted by large images of individual members, ideally matching them by same rank. For instance, Goddess cards are taken from Urakara; Queen cards from Lupin; Lady from Wanna.
  • Pips on numeric cards are arranged into the Greek letters that form the words "KARA" and "KAMILIA":
    2 = I; 3 = L; 4 = R; 5 = X; 6 = A; 7 = M; 8 = K

Completed games for Android:
