How do you spend time with your family during the lockdown? How often does it happen that all of you sit and think ‘what-to-do’ and at the end have a round table conference concluding on a deck of cards in between, waiting for you to play along?
From kings and queens to diamonds and spades, cards have won the hearts of the society bringing in all the age groups together, legally.
Playing cards are those flat, rectangular pieces of layered pasteboard which are typically used for playing a variety of games, be it using skills or chances. They are the most universal game tools one knows, ranging from your grandmother’s cribbage party game to your dorm room drinking games. In fact, when it comes to playing this, people play it with joy keeping their mind aside, away from all the stress around until and unless, it has the strong presence of gambling.
There is no doubt about their prevalence in today’s society but to know their history is something very few of us decide to know.
Now that playing cards every single day has become a routine due to the quarantine period all of us are living in, the never noticed differences in the illustrations on the face cards caught my eye and it turns out that these simple decks of cards follow an interesting pathway of history.
From the simple yet attractive meanings behind every aspect of them to the historical facts not counted under speculation, these cards have made me read my life from a whole new dimension.
Do you all know how a regular deck of 52 cards can just hold the simple key to your life in the most amazing yet shocking way possible?
Wait for the secret of living along with the horror of thirteen.
