It'd basically be an ATC set swap, right? Set of Ace through King in your partner's choice of theme.
I just got the coolest Dr. Who Ace from a personal swap with ChemeleonHound and I'm hoping we can get some more people interested!

We could do teams and say one person does all the heart suits, etc, but then you'd end up making at least one suit of your own cards...hmm.
I did the tarot card on and it was like an ongoing swap, but there's only 13 cards in the major arcana, so that worked as an ongoing...
We could do rotating partners and do suits by rounds, have 4 rounds and then you'd have a different partner each round?

To get more people in, maybe play up the first point you brought up - it's like an ATC swap, but it's computer-friendly, which ATCs really aren't. In fact, one deck could have both computer and analog-scanned art in it, so people who usually wouldn't be in the same swap can get in on this together. Smiley I love yoopidou's suggestion of picking a print service, so everyone can use a template and all the work will be compatible.

I don't have the attention span to commit to four rounds of the same swap, lol. I hope you decide to go the one-round team idea. Getting a copy of the suit I design is part of the draw for me - I like the idea of everyone in the team ending up with the same deck.

If enough people don't like having their own suit in their deck, you could do a second swap, where partners fill in each other's spaces. Like if you did hearts in your team's movie monsters deck, in the second round someone would do a movie monsters heart suit for you and you'd do whatever they needed. That way nobody has to do more than 2 suits to get a complete deck of other people's work, but anybody lazy like me can do just 1 suit and still have an awesome deck. Smiley What do you think?

I am definitely intrigued by this swap.  It seems like there are a few more details to work out (and participants to be found), but I'm keeping my eye on this one!

      I was thinking maybe a dark or steampunky circus deck with the hearts being main acts, spades being rides, diamonds being patrons, and clubs being sideshow acts.
      Or a Dr. Who theme deck!

      Or if we do a 4 person swap and each does a suit, then I'd do my suits literature or fairy tale based maybe ( or of course, steampunk, you can never have too many gears! Wink )
      I don't know, I just know that once the swap that I'm organizing is done, this will probably be next.

      Oooh I like that.  Immediately it made me think of the Dead Moon Circus from the fourth series of Sailor Moon, heheh.  But anyways, the idea of one big overall theme for the whole deck, with four sub-themes (main acts, rides, etc.) for each suit, hadn't occurred to me.  I was just imagining four sets of disparate themes, but that's a great idea.
