What is the Difference between Bridge and Poker Sized Playing Cards?
Often times the size of a playing card is referred to as a "narrow" or "wide" deck of cards. While the narrow/bridge decks (2-1/4" x 3-1/2") are called "bridge" size, the wide/poker decks (2-1/2" x 3-1/2") are called "poker" sized.
FACT: BOTH sizes are usable for any normal card game as they are really just normal decks that are a different width. So it really doesn't make any difference which size deck you choose.
- It is said that the bridge sized decks were made for the "ladies" so that it was easier to hold.
- Often times the bridge or narrow sized decks do make it easier to hold more cards in your hand.
- In the U.S. the "poker" sized are considered the "normal" size.
- In pretty much the rest of the world, the "bridge" sized cards are considered the "normal" size.
Again, please remember that you can use the "bridge" or "poker" sized decks for pretty much any card game. The only difference is one is a 1/4" narrower than the other.
Some times we offer various other "sizes" of playing cards. They may be "enlarged" or larger than normal decks or they may also be smaller than normal decks.
Another varience on the "size" would be what we call "shaped" cards. The shaped cards have taken various shapes over the years and change in popularity. They do offer a nice change of pace to a normal deck of cards.
