Answers to Questions

What are the distinct cards of a classic card deck?

13 distinct values : Ace (A or 1), 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 ,9, 10 (or T), Jack (J), Queen (Q), King (K).

The deck is often completed with 2 jokers (one red, one black)

Why these card names?

The four kings and the jack of diamond (Hector) are among the Nine Worthies (9 heroes Pagan, Christian and Jewish, respected for their glory of war in Europe). There are also 2 queens (Judith and Rachel) that are part of the Nine Worthies Women.

What is the name of other cards?

It is possible to give a two letters name for cards depending on its value and color.

Ace of Spades = 1S or AS

Two of Clubs = TC or 2C

Five of Diamonds = FD or 5D

The names are not unique: TH = 2 of Hearts or 3 of Hearts.

Why these colors (suits)?

The suits (spades, hearts, diamonds, clover) appear to be from an adaptation of the Germanic signs representing acorns, bells, leaves and hearts. For the origin of these 4 other symbols ... it had to start somewhere ...

What are Unicode codes for spade, heart, diamond and clover?
