The type of card game that will be played using the deck of cards will affect this decision, since there are certain card games that may only be played using over fifty-two cards in the deck. You would be justified in having additional cards on your deck. If you are inventive enough, you’ll be able to invent a card game using your cool set of playing cards that have additional cards that includes custom symbols, just when you customize your cards, ensure you follow the basic rules of playing cards, so that makes it simple for other to use the deck.
