Game Courier does support the use of cards, and it includes a full deck of standard playing cards. See /play/pbm/userguide.html#cards.

Due to changes in GAME Code, this preset is broken and needs to be fixed. GAME Code no longer accepts user notation as programming code except when it is preceded by the keyword 'MOVE:'. This is for the sake of distinguishing user input from programming code. The lines that need to be changed empty a space by dropping an @. These can be replaced with the empty command or by preceding the notation with 'MOVE: '.
