The Joker Card is mostly used as a spare card if you lose a card from one of the four suits cards in 52 decks of cards. It is also called a wild card, the Joker serves different purposes in different card games. In Rummy, Jokers act as a replacement for the required cards in melding sets or sequences.

Two cards, known as hole cards, are dealt face down to each player, and then five community cards are dealt face up in three stages. The stages consist of a series of three cards ("the flop"), later an additional single card ("the turn" or "fourth street"), and a final card ("the river" or "fifth street").

Playing cards come in two sizes - poker size and bridge size. Poker size is 63.5mm X 88.9mm. Bridge size is narrower at 56mm x 88.9mm. This makes more sense in old fashioned imperial measurements - both are 3.5 inches high, but poker cards are 2.5 inches wide while bridge cards are 2.25 inches wide.
