Adjudicating Arguments Between Kids

I find myself turning to the random.org android app most frequently to adjudicate arguments between my son and daughters over whose turn it is to do what and in what order.

Created a list with their three names, and whenever I hear ‘BUT IT'S MY TURN TO…’ [pick first / sit by the window in the car/ play with the toy du jour / etc.], I reach for my phone, randomize the list, and whoever's name comes on top gets preference. They've even come to me to ask me to randomize the list for them, before an argument really gets going.

Long-Distance Family Card Games

I wanted to let you know that during this lockdown time my family has used your random card sorter to play long distance card games over Zoom. My parents (in their 80's located in Oregon) and their two daughters (Alaska and Arizona) are able to meet weekly and play a few hands of Hearts. Without your website it would not have been possible. My parents look forward to our weekly time and we will likely continue even past the virus protection time. I know there are online games that could work for the card purpose, but the ability to see each other's faces is more important than the cards. My parents are not tech savvy and would not be able to participate in anything online. So we have settled on this method of playing long distance cards.

Suggestion: If I had a wish however, I would wish that the output of the random cards were in rows of 13 (as if they were dealt to 4 people). It would make it so much easier to forward everyone's cards. :-)

Thank you!
