600 Set Record for Big Human Playing Card

VERONA, N.Y. (AP) -

Six hundred people dressed in colored ponchos have aced their attempt to set a record for the largest human playing card.

The Oneida Indians say the record was set Saturday at the tribe’s center in central New York by 600 guests wearing either a white or a red rain poncho. They were told where to stand to form a human version of the ace of diamonds. Once in position, they had to remain in place for five minutes.

A Guinness World Records official was at hand to verify the record.
