I thought there was a thread on something related recently, but I  
can't seem to locate it.

If the player hands are decks, then there is direct support for  
counting the number of cards in a deck.

If the player hands are separate maps, then you would have to  
implement a trigger-based counting method so that whenever a card is  
placed on a particular map the counter is incremented and when a card  
is moved away the counter is decremented.  I think the first one is  
pretty straight-forward, but I'm not completely sure about how to do  
the second part.
