A playing card was a type of card that was marked with symbols that belonged to a deck. A variety of card games could be placed with them. There were fifty-two cards to a standard deck. Cards bearing the face of a figure were known as picture cards.

While typically rectangular, playing cards might also come in a circular shape. (TOS: "Mudd's Women"; TNG: "The Measure Of A Man", "The Price"; VOY: "State of Flux")

In the final draft script of "Mudd's Women", circular cards that appear in that entry were described as "an odd-sized deck of cards."
