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).

4 different colors: Spades (black), Diamonds (red), Clubs (black) and Hearts (red), (yes, there are actually only 2 true colors: red or black)

52 cards in total (used in most games, like poker)

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

Cards that do not have a number (J, Q, K) are sometimes referred to as face cards or court cards.

Why these card names?

The four kings names 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.

Cards between 2 and 10 do not have a name.

Which are hounourable cards?

The strongest cards are called honors in some games (eg. Bridge), the 10, the jack, the queen, the king and the ace.

What is the name of other cards?

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

Example: Ace of Spades = 1S or AS

Example: Two of Clubs = TC or 2C

Example: Five of Diamonds = FD or 5D

Sometimes, 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?

The codes of the Unicode characters corresponding to Spades, Hearts, Diamonds and Clovers are:

2660266126622663
2664266526662667
