    Tarot is actually still a pretty commonly played card game in France, Italy, and parts of Germany. The company Modiano-- which is sort of like the Italian equivalent of Bicycle, insofar as playing cards are concerned-- makes a few different decks of Tarot playing cards for the different regional styles of the game.
    "[Mathematics] is the revealer of every genuine truth, for it knows every hidden secret, and bears the key to every subtlety of letters; whoever, then, has the effrontery to pursue physics while neglecting mathematics should know from the start he will never make his entry through the portals of wisdom."
    --Thomas Bradwardine, De Continuo (c. 1325)

    Now I'm thinking of a video I saw called Yu-gi-oh Poker Night on the Mashed youtube channel, and man was it hilarious. Not really appropriate for TWeb if I remember right though.
