    I never saw it before, but I saw it almost immediately once the opening post prompted me to look for it.

    I'm almost seventy-one but I never played cards much and haven't played at all in decades. (Well, except for Free Cell on the confutor while killig time or waiting for something to run.)

    Gotta wonder of whoever first designed the conventional card layouts ever noticed it.

    Hmm, I agree with Daveroo. Never saw that either, so I'm 67 when I first saw it.
    LOL

    Well, someone like me when I was a kid growing up in rural Saskatchewan. Not much to do out there in the winter before we got TV, telephones...and, what's that thing the young kids are always on about? Interweb! That's the one....

    Yup, I saw the 8 but I have to admit I wouldn't have remembered.
