32 Cards[edit]

It is most likely that the austrian publisher (Piatnik) who first printed Quartets also published other "normal" sets of playing cards for the german variants of games like Skat https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_playing_cards Those tend to have 32 cards in most of the country (and around the austrian capital Vienna, where Piatnik probably had their HQs) so it would be the size their presses, cutting apparatusses etc were laid out for. So the notice that 52 cards are the "regular" size isn't true in Germany, Austria, the Switzerland and at least part of the Benelux countries....

Also: with 52 cards in a deck you get 13 suites of 4 each... Something most businesses would try to avoid... --5.146.47.110 (talk) 01:46, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
