While playing Indian rummy or any other card game, the face cards always hold a special value. That is why most people notice the face cards easily. When you are getting the cards customised to suit your specific family, you can give the face cards a whole new look. Here is how you can do this:

King of Diamonds
If you have that man who is filthy rich and is boastful about his wealth, he will be a perfect fit on the King of Diamonds Face Card. Similarly, if there is a man in the family who enjoys wearing precious stone and jewellery, he will also be a good face for the King of Diamonds card.
Jack of Clubs
Look among your family members and you will surely find a person who enjoys lavishing his money in clubs and high-quality restaurants. This person is a perfect fit for being the face for Jack of Clubs.
