Cards go Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9…

and suits go Spade, Heart, Diamond, Club. Not the newsflash of the century, but this was the focus of an error I had to resolve in a card game I’m working on. We have a wild-card picker with a slider to pick the card and a slider to pick the suit. I had ordered my cards “numerically” with Ace, 2, 3, etc… In the end, I needed to change the slider to Ace, King, Queen etc… down to 2. It makes sense I suppose but I overlooked it.

Another point was the order of suits. I would have never thought there was a “traditional” order… but for the record: Spade, Heart, Diamond, Club
