They call it the “game of leaves” and was enjoyed as early as the ninth century. The French claim to have standardized the card à Jouer and its descendant, the tarot.
Game of Cards
Today’s population may know how to play blackjack or bridge, but few understand that a deck of cards is an engineering, design, and historical masterpiece. Cards have served as amusement, high-stakes gambling, occult practices, magic tricks, mathematical probability models, and, at times, as cash and a conduit for hidden messages.
Deck of Cards
A deck of cards comprises 52 cards, one for each week of the year. Each suit has 13 cards, one for each of the 13 lunar months. Each suit has three face cards, an Ace, and numerical cards ranging from 2 to 10. Face cards were popular in Europe for centuries. In most games, the Ace card takes precedence over all numbered cards including face cards.
The four standard playing card symbols are the heart, club, diamond, and spade. We might call them ancient emojis because they have a long history of communicating emotion outside of the gaming table. Because of their endurance, they are a fantastic choice for incorporating symbolism in your writings.
