Update : January 15, 2021

A deck of cards has 52 cards.

Suits

There are four suits :

  • Clubs (Black)
  • Diamonds (Red)
  • Hearts (Red)
  • Spades (Black)

Each suit has 13 cards : One (or Ace), Two (or Deuce), Three (or Trey), Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten, Jack (or Knave), Queen, King.

Grapevine says that

  • the four suits correspond to the four seasons or four quarters
  • the 13 cards in a suit correspond to the number of weeks in a quarter
  • the 52 cards in a deck correspond to the number of weeks in a year
  • the two colors correspond to Ying and Yang
