Adding Cards to the Deck

In this step, you will add cards to the empty deck you just created. Each card must be placed on its own line in the deck document. Empty line in the deck document is ignored. Each card line must be in the following format.

<p>card name<br class="delimiter">card description</p>

Fill in the name of the card at the "card name" location. Fill in the description at the "card description" location. The description may be blank. The following is an example deck containing three cards: Sun, Earth, and Moon.

<p>Sun<br class="delimiter">This card symbolizes a star.</p>
<p>Earth<br class="delimiter">This card symbolizes a planet.</p>
<p>Moon<br class="delimiter">This card symbolizes a satellite.</p>

After you have finished adding cards to the deck, click on the "Save" button to save it. You can always modify and fix errors in the future.

You can add multiple identical cards to your deck. For example, if you want three Sun cards, then add three identical lines to the deck. The following is the Sun, Earth, and Moon deck with three Sun cards.

<p>Sun<br class="delimiter">This card symbolizes a star.</p>
<p>Sun<br class="delimiter">This card symbolizes a star.</p>
<p>Earth<br class="delimiter">This card symbolizes a planet.</p>
<p>Moon<br class="delimiter">This card symbolizes a satellite.</p>

Stacking Decks

You can play with multiple decks. Let say you want to play with 2 decks of the Sun, Earth, and Moon cards. Just make a new deck and copy-and-paste the content of the Sun, Earth, and Moon deck into your new deck twice. The following shows a stacking of two decks.

<p>Sun<br class="delimiter">This card symbolizes a star.</p>
<p>Earth<br class="delimiter">This card symbolizes a planet.</p>
<p>Moon<br class="delimiter">This card symbolizes a satellite.</p>

<p>Sun<br class="delimiter">This card symbolizes a star.</p>
<p>Earth<br class="delimiter">This card symbolizes a planet.</p>
<p>Moon<br class="delimiter">This card symbolizes a satellite.</p>

You can stack the deck as many times as you like. You can use this technique to stack distinct decks as well.
