Draw a random card|
Playing cards are a miscellaneous item with very little use.
The only use of the playing cards is in using multiplayer commands. If the player has playing cards in their inventory, they can use the command
/card, which will draw a random card (using the modern English deck format). The uses of this mechanic are up to the player's imagination.
Note that the playing cards cannot be used to improve the player's mood.
Playing cards can be found in desks, wardrobes, library counters, or toy store shelves.
