Ganjifa cards have been around for centuries in India and Persia, but they are relatively new to the West. Ganjifa cards are round playing cards, numbered 1-10 with two face cards: the Raja (King) and the Vizier (Minister). There are 8 suits in the Mughal version which makes 96 cards in all. All of our cards are round with a 2.9 inch diameter and printed on UV coated card stock Our face cards are lavishly illustrated with all designs based on historic decks from the 16th century. This is a great time to get an unusual and rare set of cards that is the first general printing in the US since the 1950s. Ganjifa cards are a must have for any serious playing card collector, Indian or Persian history enthusiast, those wanting a cultural tie to India, or those interested in Indian mysticism.
