Wizard is a trick-taking card game for 3 to 6 players invented by Ken Fisher of Toronto, Ontario in 1984. Wizard cards were first printed in June 1986. A Wizard deck consists of 60 cards: a regular set of 52 playing cards, 4 Wizards and 4 Jesters. The Jesters have the lowest value, then the 2 up to ace, with Wizards highest in value. The game is licensed in Canada, the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom and Italy. It is derived from Oh Hell and bears some resemblance to it.
