Playing cards are used for games and gambling, where one interacts directly with chance (or fate). Gambling with cards can be either a blessing or ruin lives.

• 4 suits for the 4 seasons
• 52 cards for the weeks in the year
• 13 cards in each suit match the 13 lunar months
• 365 days in the years (add the pips)
