The magyar kartya share the Schafkopf suit symbols (German suits basically) but they include the four seasons and name the court cards after Schiller's drama Tell.

Isn't it wonderful that in every corner of Europe, people used different card decks to play while drinking beer or red wine? And they still do.

The baraja have, judging without having them in my hand of course, something upbeat in their colouring.

ETA: I was a toadie once. Even kept my vows for some months. Felt great. But not as great as an unopened parcel in my hands :-)
