Images & Words Week 232 - Cardgames

Welcome and greetings from Sweden!

Cardgames have been played since they appeared first in China in Ninth Century. A multitude of variants have then been invented. For both light entertainment and high-stakes casino play. The Anglo-Saxon 52-card deck divided into four colours: Hearts, Diamonds, Spades and Clubs, each compiled of 13 cards, from the number cards, 2 - 10 and the Suitcards, Knave, Queen, King and the final and highest, the Ace, is the one that is dominant in the US and western Europe. The theme for this week is - Cardgames Hope you will enjoy it and find creative and wonderful ways to portray it. Looking forward to your entries. best Anders.

The New Rules:

Each week we will post an original photo creatively edited or not.
All photos or collages must contain words somewhere on the image or placed in an area on the image most suitable to be seen clearly by all.
The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography in a creative manner.
Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given to the original author, unless unknown, whereby a simple "author unknown" will suffice.
Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like, comical, but never obscene .
Posts can either contain one word, sayings, statements, quotes, or full poems ... As long as the words fit the theme, it is Your choice.
All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form
with a link back to it being left here or on Muze.
New topics will be posted on Sundays.
Posts can be made through to the following Saturday.
One post per person only please..

  3. Well now, Anders...a very different theme and was a blast creating.
    Nice flush you have there I think I'll fold....LOL

  4. since those cards are very different, perhaps I called your hand incorrectly and it's a royal straight flush?

    1. You're quite right, dear. But flush is quite allright as a term for it. Royal Straight Flush is just the embellished version.
