Never used in a sentence.

Cf. {'echlet} "board" and {'echletHom} "card" from Klingon Monopoly.

A set or pack of cards may be a {vey}, also from Monopoly.

AFAIK there's no word for "playing card" - used in poker *{poQ'ar} for example - but *{Quj 'echletHom}, on the model of {Quj 'echlet} "game board", works.  

Hmm... *{'echlet Quj} "board game" vs. *{'echletHom Quj} "card game"??
