Thirty-two Card Packs

If Piquet or Bezique cards are used, i.e., packs with the 2, 3, 4, 5

and 6 of each suit omitted--leaving but 32 cards in the set--the ordinary

rules are observed. When playing with this smaller pack the hands will

apparently be of far greater value than usual. This arises from

the fact that all the lower cards of each suit are omitted, and after a

few deals it will be found very difficult to make even a small number of

tricks with hands which, if a full pack of cards was in use, would be

exceptionally good. There being but thirty-two cards to deal with,

the number of players must not exceed three, or perhaps four.
