Four cards are taken from a standard deck, one from each suit.
They are shuffled and dealt face down on a table.
Coins are then placed at random on two of the cards.

What is the probability that the two chosen cards are the same color?

Something makes me feel like this is too easy. Maybe it's bonanova's mysterious smiley face avatar. Then again, I may be over-thinking.
