In the 16th century playing cards were introduced in India by the Mughal emperors from Central Asia that were fond of the game “Ganjifa”. The name “Ganjifa” evolved from the Persian word for playing cards, ‘ganjifeh’. Unlike the rectangular shape of the playing cards used in China, England or Europe, playing cards in India had a round shape. And Indian playing cards used to be made of ivory, palm leaves or wood instead of paper or cardboard. Today many popular card games in India include Bridge, Blackjack, Bluff, Poker, Solitaire, and the skill-game Rummy, which is one of the most well-known card games played in India.
