In modern times the word card game can encompass any card game, even though there are lots of types of card game which predate the rest. An easy playing card (sometimes written"qi" or pronounced"kee") is the basic card game. Simple card games are played with a standard deck of 52 cards. Each player receives two decks of 52 cards, one all red and black, face down. The first person may choose which deck to use, then takes turns coping off the decks until a winner is found.

The game became popular in Europe, especially in France, where it was first introduced. The prevalence of card playing cards in Britain started to grow toward the center of the nineteenth century, as bingo came into vogue.
