World of Cards

What in the world is going on in the world of playing cards?  Why are there so many decks of playing cards in thw world?  What is the big deal with playing cards?  What is so special about playing cards?  Why would anyone have a whole website dedicated to playing cards?


Our mission here at Newt's has been two-fold.  First of all it is to encourage the play of cards with family, friends and loved ones.  Playing card games with others is a great way to slow down and spend some quality time with other folks.  In our fast food, fast paced world we need to be encouraged to slow down and enjoy the moment.  Catch our breath.

Our second mission has been to encourage the hobby of collecting playing cards.  Playing cards are a wonderful, inexpensive thing to collect and the options are unending.  Playing cards go back in to the history of human beings hundreds of years and offer an educational experience for all ages.  Even if one does not collect antique playing cards there are thousands of choices everyday, all around us.

We are asked these and hundreds more questions all the time.  This area of Newt's Games & Playing Cards is dedicated to education.  What little we know, we will attempt to share it with you.  If you have any suggestions please let us know.

As always, if you see something that would be a great addition to what we offer please let us know.
