What's the largest card size in a board game that's still current (in print sometime in the 21st century)?

I'm looking for cards that are used as cards, not as placemats. This means that the cards are used in a deck or a pile containing multiple cards at a time.

(A good answer would be in both inches and millimeters.)

@PatLudwig, I design board games for a company that's interested in keeping an eye on card sizes in the marketplace. – Joe Jan 16 '13 at 22:55
The Great Project cards in 7 Wonders: Babel are huge. You only use 1 at a time and they're essentially placemats, but they're cards in that they're designed to be shuffled for randomisation (and not printed as thicker tiles like the wonder boards). I don't know the size exactly but I'll have a check later. – Samthere Feb 16 at 15:08

This PDF from contains the sizes of cards for just about every modern game. It looks like the largest one on there is for Planechase at 89mm x 127mm (3.5" x 5").

I'm surprised something beat out Dixit. – Gregor Jan 17 '13 at 0:50
