The exact story of the emergence of playing cards is debated.

Some historians believe that cards were developed in India and derived from the game of chess.

Some card backs have a white border while the pattern on others extends to the edge of the card.

In general, the back patterns are symmetrical so cards have only one real orientation.

The faces of these cards are typically decorated with two colors, red and black, and four suits including clubs, spades, hearts, and diamonds.

Each suit has thirteen cards consisting of three face cards (king, queen, jack) and number cards from one (ace) to ten.

They also had numerals from one to ten and face cards, which included a king, deputy king and second deputy king.

When Europeans began to produce their own cards, they did not produce consistent designs and any number of suits or face cards would be made.

Others suggest that they were developed as implements for magic and fortune telling in Egypt.

The first written record of the use of playing cards comes from the Orient, dating back to the twelfth century.

When color lithography was developed in the early 1800s, the production of playing cards was revolutionized.
