1.3 Preliminaries

The most card games are played with a regular card deck, i.e., cards where the pattern on the front side (face) determines the card type (e.g. the King of Spades, the Seven of Hearts, the Ace of Club, or the Jack of Diamonds) and where the back sides (face down) of all cards are indistinguishable. Only such ‘regular’ card decks are supported by LibTMCG and the provided card encoding schemes.
