Could we compare notes?  I'd love to add your ideas to the listing I'm 
putting together and make a real heraldic games site.

BTW, heraldic flash cards?  If these are basic blazonry stuff, then you
might consider a few rounds of Speed Blazon.  Caller holds up a card and
the first person to shout out the correct blazon gets a point.  It's loud
and chaotic and lots of fun.  You can also use same as caller cards for
heraldic bingo for a novice game.

Consider Heraldic Charades, a particularly evil game of my own devising.
Teams are selected.  Using real armory (SCA or historical, cards are 
prepared with both emblazon and blazon.  One team member gets the card
and then has to get the team to recite the correct (or very close) blazon
by miming the entire thing, using no words.  Another particularly silly
game, but one that requires a test-run through some of the more complicated
stuff before inflicting it on players.
