OK, so I’m getting excited now!
When I saw the promo graphic for the upcoming Dealer stack from Doobox, it gave me an idea. I would like to have a page on one of my websites that had a layout of cards on it, in this case, Tarot cards. By using several random image stacks, I could display a layout of cards that are “drawn” from the virtual deck.
The problem is that there is a likely hood that once in a while the same image would be displayed, ruining the illusion of cards being drawn from a deck.
But what if the Dealer stack also had an ID number on it? If the Dealer stack had a controller stack with it, then perhaps you could put several dealer stacks on one page, assign them a unique ID number, and have the controller stack ensure that none of the Dealer stacks on the page would show the same image.
I am thinking this would be good to do a virtual “card reading”. The purpose of this would be to attract people to the site and could have the URL spread around to their friends who would also want a free Tarot reading.
A modal stack could be used to ensure that each player could only have one reading per day.
What a great SEO scheme to drive traffic to the site!
You could do something similar with standard playing cards. Photographers could use it to display a mosaic of image samples from their portfolio, ensuring that the same image would not show up more than once on the page.
Is this doable?
PLEASE, PLEASE say yes!
