  Playing card - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An early mention of a distinct series of playing cards is the entry of Charles or Charbot Poupart, treasurer of the household of Charles VI of France, in his book of accounts for 1392 or 1393, which records payment for the painting of three sets or packs of cards, which were evidently already well known.
Although the joker card often bears the image of a fool (possibly derived from the stereotypical village idiot), which is one of the images of the Tarot deck, it is not believed that there is any relation.
Until August 4, 1960, decks of playing cards printed and sold in the United Kingdom were liable for taxable duty and the Ace of Spades carried an indication of the name of the printer and the fact that taxation had been paid on the cards.

The cards are taken around the back of the magician where he removes the selected card and folds it first into quarters then when he takes the deck around his back again he completes the folding and hides the folded card beneath the deck.
The magician now takes the end of the face-up signed card and proceeds to bend it almost double, he turns the bent card face down, cuts off the bottom half of the deck and holds the deck at eye level where the bent card can be clearly seen on top.

 Rules of Card Games: Red Dog
If you have a card in your hand which is the same suit as the dealt card and higher in rank, you show this card, take back your stake, and the dealer gives you an equal amount out of the pot.
If you have no card which is the same suit as and higher than the dealt card, you must show your whole hand, and the dealer sweeps your stake into the pot.
When the player has bet, the dealer burns one card (faces it and puts it on the bottom of the pack), and turns up the next card, and the player's three cards are exposed.
