“The standard 56-card deck (knightly deck) of fifty six playing cards in use today includes fourteen ranks of each of the four French suits, clubs (♣), diamonds (♦), hearts (♥) and spades (♠) with reversible Rouennais “court” or face cards (however, some modern face card designs have done away with reversible figures), and is used especially in rook, hearts, spades and mighty card games.

But why so many quotations ? – I could easily recycle concepts with my own words and pretend that I had some groundbreaking idea, or make a dissertations to explain something, but that is not what this website is about, It is about using the media SPELLING in an attempt of DISPELLING it.
For that reason I don’t care if it comes from shady Wikipedia or a tabloid, in some cases controlled information simply works better for Dispelling.
