The story of the contemporary playing cards deck

The deck origin is lost in the mists of time. The first playing cards, also playing the role of money, were believed to be invented in China (7th century). The deck’s contemporary form was created in Egypt (end of 13th century), during the age of the Mamluks. Today there are hundreds of deck types worldwide, but the most popular deck form (52 cards, 4 symbols―spades, hearts, diamonds, clubs) is considered to be French.

 

At first, the decks had only male figures: The Queen became permanent after the 15th century, while the Joker was added by the Americans in 1860.

 

In 1745 there was the first reversal design in the cards: before that, the players had to turn some cards around, in order to see which is which, thus giving away the card they were holding. Turning the cards around was no longer necessary after the mirror-like design, which is why this change was immediately adopted, although it limited more elaborated design options.

 

Playing cards games are divided in solitaires (1 player) and group games (2+ players). Today, there are written rules for more than 120 games and at least 350 different types of solitaires.
