How does the value of the cards equal to 365 when: 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9=45 then you add 1 for the Joker to make it 46. How much is the Jack, Queen and King worth?. If they are worth 10 each that would bring the total to 76. If I multiply 76 times 4 the answer will give me only 304 not 365 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

There's a video on yt from the show Q.I., that explains the odds of shuffling 52 cards into the same order, in a far more mind-blowing way: "If every star in our galaxy (250 billion) had a trillion planets, and each of those planets had a trillion people, and each of those people had a trillion decks of cards, and they've been shuffling all of the decks a thousand times a second since the big bang (13.8 billion years); then they would only NOW, start repeating the orders of previous shuffle!l"

+OXOTNHK aka D3ath Patr0l - As a sidenote. I would go so far as to say, that ALL "card tricks," are fundamentally born from people figuring out ways of cheating their odds/opponents, when gambling with cards.
Yet if you do the standard poker shuffle 7 times all the cards will be back to the starting point its a weird little detail used by illusionists and such

No matter how add up all the cards you won’t get 365... you can’t an odd value no matter what you assign to the joker!

IN American Tarot lore Spades/swords = Air. Clubs/wands = Fire.
Some of the best times of my life involved playing cards with my HS/college friends. We used to go down to my dead Grannies shore house- that's where some of the best games were. We would, of course, need cases of beer and much weed. Also snacks but, NO chips- nothing can destroy a deck of cards like sliding around on a greasy table and being handled by greasy paws!! The best # of players was 5 or 6; 4 were too few, 7 too many, (but acceptable.) It was always just guys, of course, so it was time for deep bonding. Nothing like playing cards, drinking beer, smoking dope and WINNING at cards. The stereo was always going but, at a low volume (can't be distracted by The Faces wailing on 'Miss Judy's Farm' while trying to draw to an inside straight.) Games were ALWAYS played with chips for conformity's sake, to be cashed in after the game (if you passed out, your chips were all thrown into a pot agreed upon by the players.) The best game to play seemed to be 7-card stud; lots of betting, guys stayed in almost to the end. "Chicago" and "Cincinnati" were split-pot variations of same. Progression poker was also good, but could drag on sometimes. As for the players, they seemed to fall into 3 categories: 1) *Good players*- relied on skill as well as luck. (I was one of these, of course.) Highly- competitive a$$holes, all good people. Guys who took Trigonometry III as juniors. 2) *Decent players*- relied on luck and the ability to stay awake. Your mid-level drones; guys who were taking Spanish II & Algebra II as juniors; Nig-lipped the joints. 3) *Bad players*- relied on luck, always bad, and their ability to borrow when they ran out of cash. It was pretty much an unspoken rule NOT to lend money to these guys cause, well, what's the F'ing point?? To play against your own money, with the high possibility they lose, was your BEST outcome. A necessity, there was always 1 of these guys, usually an OCD-type of guy. These were the guys whose highest-level classes were Advanced Auto Mechanics and Birdhouse Construction as seniors; Drooled on their cards. *RULES* 1- You could never start rolling a joint if your deal was next. Salivating potheads had no place in a card game. 2- No potty breaks during a game. Hold it or fold it. 3- Beer-runs: The guy who was winning had to make it and buy a house six-pack. No skunk beer like Molson or Miller. 4- Count the deck every hour or so. This rule was frequently ignored (more later.) 5- Never let the guy who dug 'The Grass Roots' put on an album. 6- Each player can only raise twice in a head-to-head. 7- When the 2nd-to-last player dropped/ran out of money--game over. No one wants to play head-to-head against a bro. Back to the count-the-cards rule; we rarely ever did this. For two reasons, I think- 1) We didn't want to imply a bro might cheat at fitty-cent-limit poker and 2) No one could bear the shame of being caught cheating at a 'bro' game. They would have been shunned. I know I, in all honesty, never cheated and never thought of doing it. I would 'take' my bro's money but I would not cheat to get it!! BEST TIMES!!

Playing cards were seen by the rulers of England as a ready source of revenue, particularly when there were wars to be paid for. So, the makers and later the purchasers, paid a tax on each pack. Instances are recorded of taxes being raised in 1588, in 1628, during Queen Anne’s reign, and from 1711 onwards, until the tax was finally abolished in 1960 (!) since by then it was more trouble to collect than it was worth. Playing cards was seen as addictive gambling and as such proved to be an easy source of income generation. In order to prevent tax avoidance, the ace of spades was held by customs and only issued once duty had been paid by the card maker.

I've always loved cards. I have a lot of different decks, and knew most of this and a bit of alternative thoughts on the kings. But those WWII decks are a goal. The best I have is a deck of reproductions of medieval cards. Everything else is modern but very cool.

=Um. Adding up the "values" on a deck of card yields 220. You would have to assume that a Jack=11, Queen=12 and King=13, to get 364 then assume Joker=1. I've never heard of face cards have such values assigned to them. Have you? Seems a bit of a stretch. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Deck_of_Cards

Cards are also related to Tarot cards. Spades are swords/air element, hearts are cups/water element, diamonds are coins/earth element and clubs are wands/fire element

The Ten of Diamonds card is sometimes referred to as the "Man From The South" card. The diamonds resemble the 10 successful flicks of the Zippo Lighter, that vvill vvin the bet. Anything less, you lose a finger.  Roald Dahl is the author of the story that all this came from.

4 suits came from the actual United Nations. Look at first nation symbol 4 squares in circle. red black yellow white. It was a card game like chess with all nations all in or out. History is way older my friend. Water takes, and gives. books not last forever, so all was lost. Each suit has ranks. but the joker trumps all. He wild card. We take him out, so people can be swindled. Joker has no suit and only 1 the 2 jokers in the deck, is because cheaters rip it. so take out 2nd. ;p

Not that its a BAD video but people on the comments seem to have more info. Playing cards are a n incomplete set of tarot cards. Also, they get the "meaning" of the cards wrong as air is represented by spades (originaly swords) and so on. Also, the joker is the only major arcana that survived from the tarot, being in this last one "the fool", only arcana (card) without a number. The fool is everyone, and so it takes place as any card in a playing card deck.

Cumulative happenstance only works when you assign 11 -> J, 12 -> Q and 13 -> K then 1 + 2 + 3 + ... + 9 + 10 + J + Q + K = 91 91 x 4 suits = 364 + 1 joker = 365 and for a leap year + 2 jokers = 366 Just as well the French understood numeric design better than these AMAZED youtubers

Ummm ... if the Kibg of Diamonds represents Gaius Julius Caesar, why did you show a bust & coin depicting Caesar Augustus, his great-nephew, adopted son & heir? And actually Caesar Augustus was the only REAL emperor on the decks ... Charlemagne was crowned "emperor" of "the Holy Ronan Empire", of which was said "it was not holy, nor Roman, nor an empire" ... it was a made up stand in for the actual Roman Empire which had collapsed in the West around 400 years before.

@ 5:31 only if you add as their perspective position within the deck. Face cards are usually worth 10 in most cases. This does not add up to 365 if you value the face cards at 10. Only when 11 for Jack, 12 for the Queen and 13 for the King does this add up to 365 with a joker...

I remember back in the 60's my grand parents (who were WWI era people) would be selling decks of ace of spades cards at VFW picnics. They gave the reasoning that if our boys were taken prisoner with an ace of spades on their person the cong wouldn't kill them. Later I found out the real reason for the cards.

Tarot cards. Playing cards are the minor cards. The jack is page and knight combined. The joker is the Fool basically hidden.
