  Chinese character cards

 

China

A deck of Chinese character cards, in China called zi pai, consists of 80 playing cards, that are divided into  4 series of 2 sets of 10 cards each, numbered 1 to 10, and with the numbers 2, 7 and 10 printed in red. One set uses ordinary numbers (above); whilst the other uses banker's anti-fraud numerals (mirrored below). This specific pack has just one joker-card (on the right).
