cards and decks are set-up before the game. As in Deckbuilding Games, there's usually a fixed number of cards per deck that aren't collected individually, though there may be add-on decks.

Then there are ([=CCGs=]). This genre combines the collectability of, for instance, baseball cards, with the mechanics of a card game. They generally have vivid artwork and complicated effects and strategies. Some take place in an original universe, and others are tie-ins to movies or TV series. Some are massively popular, with [[TournamentPlay tournaments]] and thousands of cards.

Before paper cards, wood or bone tiles were often used and can still be found in some types of "card" games. Tile games like [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominoes Dominoes]] and TabletopGame/{{Mahjong}} even share game types with cards, such as the Trick-Taking Game.

Playing cards originated in China as early as the 11th century and took the world by storm, making up the majority of modern games. When they came to Europe (via Arabic countries) in the late 14th century, the standard of 52 cards, with each of the four suits having cards numbered from 1 to 10 plus three court cards, had already been established. In Europe this system evolved in several directions (regional standards still exist in southern and central Europe). The ''de facto'' international standard of four suits most known today -- hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs -- appeared in 16th century France.

Other types of playing card decks are in use in Europe and Asia. These include French tarot, Italian tarot and Indian ganjifa. {{Mahjong}} may be considered a close cousin despite using tiles. The tarot deck, by the way, was originally ([[http://www.tarocchino.com/page2.html and still is]]) used for card games, and those games gave rise to the modern concept of a trump suit.
