Are there any decent puzzles using playing cards?

Spellbinder's "Missing Card Puzzle" might be considered "decent" when properly dressed up by a presentation. It's in The Wizards' Journal #25.

1) Take the A,K,Q,J of each suit from the deck. The challenge is this: create a 4x4 square of those cards such that there are no two cards of the same value in any row, column or long diagonal.

2) Harder: create a 4x4 square of those same cards such that there are no two cards of the same value OR THE SAME SUIT in any row, column, or long diagonal.
