#Details

Nicknames

  • The King of Hearts is also known as the Suicide King because of the peculiar position of his sword.
  • The Jack of Spades and Jack of Hearts are referred to as One-Eyed Jacks, due to their faces being in profile.

Features

  • Typically, the Ace of Spades is more ornate, but in Mage & Fool decks, the Ace of Clubs receives special attention and features the Junior logo.
  • The King of Diamonds is the only King with an Axe. He’s also the only King who isn’t holding his weapon.
  • The Queen of Spades is the only Queen facing her left.
  • The Jack of Hearts is the only Jack who isn’t holding a weapon. Instead, he’s holding a feather, similar to the one in the Jack of Clubs’ hat.
