Be Amazed at these Top 10 Things You Don’t Know About Playing Cards! Cards inspired many sayings - Many terms used during card games have been adopted as phrases in general life. Let’s look at a straightforward example first – ‘to follow suit’. How the four suits arose - It is generally agreed that playing cards originated in China in the 9th century before spreading to many other countries. Why there is a joker - The joker card first appeared in printed card decks in the 1860s. The card was used as the Best Bower, which was an extra trump card in the new American version of the game Euchre. Why the King of Hearts doesn’t have a moustache - If you’ve ever played close attention to the Kings in your card deck, you’ll have noticed the King of Hearts is unique for a couple of reasons. The King of Hearts is stabbing himself - The second unique thing about the King of Hearts relates to his weapon. Until the 1800s his weapon of choice was a battle axe, and yet today he holds a sword.
Why there are 52 cards in a deck - It’s the French we can thank for there being 52 cards in a standard deck. Different countries developed different versions of card decks which ranged from 24 to 52 cards. The court cards were attributed with personalities of historical figures - Because the court cards obviously represent positions in social hierarchy, over time people came to attribute historical royal figures to these cards. Why is the Ace of Spades is different? Ever noticed that the Ace of Spades often has a more ornate design than other aces?This practice originated in Europe in the 16th century, where there was a tax on the manufacturing of playing cards. It’s possible a deck of cards has never been properly shuffled and yielded the same result in all of history - You’ll be aware that there are many ways to shuffle a deck of cards. The most common are rifle shuffling, as used in casinos, Hindu shuffles, commonly used in Asia, and the overhand shuffle, which is perhaps the easiest technique. Design secrets behind Bicycle cards - The United States Playing Card Company ownsBicycle brand cards which are the most iconic cards worldwide, originating from the first back design which featured penny-farthing.
You gave us the names of the kings (names that are actually the same that are written on the BP Grimaud cards) : Charles = hearts, David = spades, Cesar = diamonds, Alexandre = clubs. But queens and jacks also have names. Jack of clubs is Lancelot, the knight of the Round Table. Jack of diamonds is Hector, the trojan prince. Jack of spades is Ogier, a danish knight who served Charlemagne (aka the king of hearts which is a little bit strange). Jack of hearts is La Hire de Vignole, a knight friend of Joan of Ark. Queen of spades is Pallas, also known as Athena the greek goddess of wisdom. Queen of diamonds is Rachel and queen of Hearts Judith, both being characters from the Bible. Finally Queen of clubs has been named Argine, which is an anagram of Regina, the latin (and italian) name for queen.
"The Joker card has become worth a lot of money."
Aaaaaaand I've been throwing them and the Poker "which hand beats which" instruction card out of my Bicycle decks since I was old enough to play Go Fish.
I knew about the 52 to cards and the relationship to the calendar and seasons. Many prisoners use a deck of cards as a calendar and a Bible. One thing they didn't mention which is somewhat commonly known is that Aces and eights is known as the dead man's hand because it's the hand that Billy the Kid was holding when he was killed.
The given history of playing cards was very fascinating and of great interest to me !
During the winter months, my family gathers every Friday night of every week, and enjoy
playing various games of cards! It will be interesting for us to watch this video together
before we begin our card game.......It will be the topic of the evening while we play the game
of the night ! Thank you for sharing your info.
King of Spades.. King David.. HAHAHAHAHAHA! Too funny.. We got our pack of cards from the Tarot.. Major arcana and minor arcana.. Our modern cards come from the minor arcana.. As for "king david".. Just the usual propaganda I am afraid.. lol Not amazed! lol
At the near beginning of this video (.31), describing the phrase "To follow suit" ..... It depicts a woman in a power suit pointing the way for a bunch of sadsack men. That's as far as we got. You can take this BS video and it's feminist subliminal messages and shove it up your ass.
maybe the king of hearts had a girlfriend who didnt like it when they kissed that she felt his mustache hairs so he had to shave it and later his girlfriend broke up with him and it felt like he was stabd in the heart!!! (remember he is the king of hearts) possible?
if i made a deck of cards,it would have fancy designs for all the ace cards and the names of all the royal members would be printed (with the jack of hearts being called "Jack") and the jokers would be jokers and stuff and stuff and stuff and stuff and CARD TRICKS
Why does the King of Hearts have four hands on the picture? I believe that the Queen of Spades took out king of hearts. First evidence is look closely at the sleeves on the Queen of Spades and the other hand holding a sword on the Kingdom Hearts. Every other face card does not have sleeve.
THAT WAS A BADASS VIDEO, BRO! REALLY ENJOYED IT! I'll be honest... I've been playing with cards for almost 25 years now and even like to think of myself at this moment as a semi-pro card player and yet I think I maybe knew 1 or 2 of the 10! GREAT VIDEO AND GLAD I WATCHED! #ThumbsUpButton
They aren't sticks, they are wands. Those are not bells, they are orbs. How do you figure the king of hearts has no facial hair? He, obviously, has a beard! It's not a rifle shuffle, it's a riffle shuffle.
Number 5 interests me in that 52 cards (52 weeks in a year). Originally in the 1800's there was only one joker, but then in the late 1940's 2 jokers were incorporated into the decks for the game of Canasta. The four seasons corresponding to the four suits and then adding the value of the cards plus 1 for the joker was quite interesting. The most mind blowing was the maps in the card. I had heard of this before, but still find it quite amazing.
What surprised me the most is there is no mention of tarot cards as the forerunner. THAT is where coins cups wands and swords, the four suits, originate. Also there were 4 court cards, but the knight and page were combined.
The older suits of swords, coins, cups and sticks still remains as the common suits in the minor arcana of tarot cards. About the only difference my set of cards - my Dragon Age set - has is that the "sticks" are Staves because a stave is another name for a staff, and thus the weapon of a Mage, which is appropriate in a game universe where the situation Mages live in is a big issue. Most of the Staves cards are also Mage-related.
The king of harts is not killing himself it’s actually the queen of spades that is killing the king you can see this when you look closer to the sleeve of the hand holding. The sword and the kings hands are actually on the card
The jokers also represent day and night/sun and moon. The back of the cards are night while the front is day, there are 12 court cards and 12 months. 13 cards in each suit and 13 weeks in each season. If you do a perfect riffle shuffle from new deck order 24 times it will shuffle full circle back to new deck order.
In cartomancy (card reading) you got the association of the black cards backwards. Spades are air, Imagine a sword being swung through the air, Clubs are fire, a symbol of power, clubs are also wands, imagine a wand yielding the power of fire.
I’ve known most of these, but I’m a hobby card magician, so I have and use a lot of cards :) It should be noted that a deck of cards “technically” has more than 52 cards — a new deck contains 56 cards (52 normal cards, 2 jokers and 2 “brand” cards; many specialist decks contain special cards instead of brand cards, such as blank cards, duplicate cards or double-backed cards). Also, USPCC/bycicle poker cards are not just the most iconic, they arguably handle the best too: an air cushoned finish means they fan easily/slide nicely, the triple glued layers mean they’re flexible but very durable. Some competitors are good too, but many cheap brands are just plain shit.
