The Baraja Española | Noxporium

Most people in the UK are familiar with only one type of playing cards – the normal, proper ones. Sometimes a deck of cards might show images of wanted Iraqi fugitives (or naughty pictures of ladies), but the cards themselves will still follow the same pattern – four suits and thirteen cards of each; including a king, a queen and a jack. The baraja española (the Spanish deck) ignores almost all these standards – it’s a 40 card set which misses out some of the numbers and has completely different suits.

If you were to travel to Spain in the 14th century and asked to play cards, chances are that they would pull out a deck of cards that you have never seen before. These Spanish playing cards are better known as the Baraja Espanola, which, in English, literally means "Spanish Deck". While not commonly used in the modern age for standard card games, there are still very popular uses for these playing cards.

The deck of the baraja Espanola can be as large as 48 cards, but is usually trimmed to a 40 card deck, removing the eights and nines. However, most decks are sold already containing only 40 Spanish playing cards. A card is called a naipe in standard terminology.

The most common use for these "playing cards" today is fortune telling, very similarly to Tarot cards. There are many other games that can be played with this deck, such as the "las siete y media", which is very similar to blackjack, but the most common use remains fortune telling.

As a fortune teller, you would usually draw a single naipe to give a simple answer to someone's question, and if you needed to, you could draw a second card to further describe the initial card. Or, if you are giving a more advanced reading, you can deal an entire spread, and all the cards have many different meanings. For example, the Ace of Bastos predicts Deceit, Lies, Bad Faith, Intrigue, and Death. Just like the Tarot cards, combinations of cards can change their meanings, and to fully understand the combinations, one must spend a large amount of time studying the cards.
