No Revoke

No Revoke

"No revoke" playing cards are designed to help reduce eye strain and the risk of players accidentally committing a revoke in trick-taking games like Bridge and Whist. "No revoke" cards typically replace the traditional red/black suits (hearts, diamonds, spades, and clubs) with different colours, such as red, green, blue, and black so that the suits more easily recognizable during play.
