I've got several possible projects in my head at the moment, but there is one I'm quite keen on.

I don't want to give too much away at the moment, although I will eventually explain all once I get going.

But firstly, I need a name.

Now what I'm creating is a cross between a pack of cards and a pack of dominoes.

I know there already exist playing cards with domino faces, Bicycle do a Double Nine Pack for example.

And then Purmenco/"CustoDominoes" do a set of CARDominoes

My goal is to end up with both cards and bones, but I've yet to find anyone who will do custom dominoes, so that might have to be done from scratch.

But what do I call this pack of domino cards?

They won't just be normal dominoes on playing cards, but the idea is that you will be able to play both domino games and card games.

CARDominoes is A, already taken, and B, a bit cheesy.

Any ideas?

From the way you've worded this post is sounds like this is still very much in the early stages of development. Especially if it's mostly in your head. I wouldn't worry about a name just yet. Get the idea out and play with the actual game, and let the name come later. Perhaps the direction the game goes will inspire something more organically. At the moment though, if it truly is just an idea, call it "Idea 1"

Do you have an image or sketch of what they look like?
It would help a lot.

In Afrikaans witkol means white dots.

So, you plan to keep these abstract and unthemed?

OK, yes it is very much in the early stages, but I also do feel I have a clear direction for where this is going.

The point is, it is not really a game in and of itself. It is a means to play any number of pre-existing games.

Ideally, people will be able to pick these up and play any card game or any domino game with or without tweaks.

They are cards - and dominoes - does this help?

Erm... Not entirely sure what you mean about abstract or theme. See my first comment in this reply.
