I didn't see a solution to the card puzzle? I can't figure it out.

What playing card completes the puzzle?


It's a toughie and still in play...


Hint #1: Only consider rows.

Hint #2: Consider the first three cards and then the fourth card.

Meanwhile,

At a party, everyone shook hands with everybody else. There were 66 handshakes. How many people were at the party?
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Correct!

Move over TDG. Ace2 has the new speed record!

("False" would also be acceptable since there are no parties and, if there were, no one would be shaking hands.)

I will assume that an ace's value is one. Then the final card is the 2 of hearts.

Then I will have to go with the 6 of hearts. The straight flush in diamonds must be a clue.

Card puzzle answer



3 of heart ?

Mod 10 (total of three highest point card in a row) = lowest point card. Consider Ace is one point.

Meanwhile, just to inform that I am a "serious" Baccarat player ! LOL

If Q is consider 12 points, then the better answer is Q of heart.

...in a different way; the rank is the arithmetic mean of the values of the first three cards, and the suit is the one that is not already in the row


Meanwhile, here's another question: where can I go to post images that I can link here? As I said earlier, Imgur no longer seems to allow this.
