600 in NY 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 by 600 guests at the tribe's Turning Stone Resort Casino Event Center in central New York.

The 600 guests wore either a white or a red rain poncho and 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 Turning Stone to verify the record.
