Because the pack has exactly 60 cards, it is possible for 2-6 players to play games which require all cards to be dealt (ie. trick-taking games), with each player receiving the same number of cards, and without having to remove any cards before dealing, as follows:
2 players - 30 cards each 3 players - 20 cards each 4 players - 15 cards each 5 players - 12 cards each 6 players - 10 cards each
There are 15 rankings within each suit: 2-12, J (Jack), Q (Queen), K (King), and A (Ace).
Although the deck is designed primarily for trick-taking games (such as Hearts, Spades, etc), it can also be used for other standard games, most of which can be played with no modification (although point values might be different). The biggest exception is Blackjack, which should have a target of 25 (instead of 21), with court cards (Jack, Queen and King) being worth 12 (instead of 10) and Aces being worth either 13 (instead of 11) or 1. These changes allow the game to be played normally in all other respects.
Note: Includes 2 standard Jokers and 3 Info/Rules Cards, which should be removed from the deck before playing.
Cards are printed with smudge-resistant UV coating and linen finish.
