Trello for flashcards? Can you place questions and answers in the same cards?

I find trello much quicker to use than google sheets for structuring study topics, it's easier to insert images and the markup is quick. You could structure it as follows:

One board per subject e.g. Organic chemistry

One list per subtopic e.g. Acids

One card with questions in the description pr topic, e.g. pH

One card with answers.

So you go down the list of questions and press J to go to the next card with answers, mark any cards you had no problems answering green, yellow or red if you couldn't answer. This gives you a visual overview over what you still need to study.

Is there any way to place the answers in the same card as the questions without immediately showing them?

@Johan Knudsen Aardal why do you want to put the answers there without immediately showing them?

You want to answer the questions first, then look at the answers (like you do with flashcards).

You can do that by putting the answers on a separate card below, but it would be neater to be able to put them in the same card with some way to toggle their visibility :)

@Johan Knudsen Aardal okay cool check out this Butler recipe:

Thanks again Ian, not exactly what I'm looking for though.

All I'm trying to do is to have one card pr question/answer topic instead of two cards, one for the questions and one for the topics.

Could you make the question be the card title, which you can see fromt he board without clicking on the card, and then when you click on the card, the answer is in the description? 

You could also put it in a comment - not necessarily hiding it but maybe making it where you have to scroll to see the answer?

@Johan Knudsen Aardal @Brittany Joiner riffing on this solution, if you have a very long description on a Trello card you get a link to "view full description". If you put the answer at the bottom of a bunch of text, you could reveal the answer that way:

Could you make the question be the card title?


Unfortunately not, each topic has up to 10 questions.  To complicate things more answers also have images attached that should not be immediately visible.
