Playing Cards Puzzles

Playing cards, set of cards that are numbered or illustrated (or both) and are used for playing games, for education, for divination, and for conjuring.

Playing cards is the name for the 54 cards used card games like poker, bridge, blackjack, and solitaire. There are 52 basic cards in a deck (not including the jokers). These cards have a suit and a number (called the value or rank). There are 4 suits and 13 ranks in each suit.

King, Queen and Jack (or Knaves) are face cards. So, there are 12 face cards in the deck of 52 playing cards.


Ranks are indicated by numerals from 1 to 10 on “spot cards.” In addition, three court cards designated jack (formerly knave), queen, and king are notionally equivalent to 11, 12, and 13, respectively, though actually marked J, Q, and K.

Playing cards puzzles are a part of many competitive examinations, these also helps you improve your logical thinking and above all these are fun to crack !!!


In general to solve puzzles logical reasoning is necessary. In logic, there are three kinds of logical reasoning. they are


precondition and rule implies a conclusion. so based on precondition, induction, abduction we can define above three as below.

DEDUCTION means determining the conclusion. It is using precondition and rule to make conclusion. Mathematicians are commonly used this type of logical reasoning.

INDUCTION means determining the rule. It is learning the rule after numerous examples of conclusion following the precondition. scientists are commonly used this type of logical reasoning.

ABDUCTION means determining the precondition.

It is using conclusion and rule to support that precondition could explain the conclusion. diagnosticians and detectives commonly used this type of logical reasoning.


To solve puzzles logical reasoning is necessary. With out reasoning we can’t solve any type of logical problems. solving logical puzzles can also improves IQ level and maturity level.
