Obviously youll need Player hand windows with the sides specified who
they belong to. You'll also want to make the hands visible to all

On your playing cards you'll need the mask trait. In the mask trait you
define the back of the card (what all players normally see when card
isnt revealed) and the owning players back of card which lets the card
owner "see through" the card to the unrevealed side without actually
having to reveal it unless they have to
