|My mom started collecting playing cards around the time my family went to Italy for a year in 1958. The whole collection has suddenly come into my possession. I thought it would be fun to share this on the web with anyone who cares. Anyone who knows more about a deck should email me, and I can add the information. Many thanks to Wolfgang Altfahrt for information on the Austrian decks and the many others who have shared their knowledge.|
Here is an interesting site that explains all kinds of card games, including regional games played with foreign suits.
