Copag Plastic Coated Spanish Series - A Spanish deck has 48 cards and features traditional Spanish artwork. Spanish cards can be used to tell the fortunes of your friends or to play the popular game of Mus. Mus is similar to Poker in that cards are drawn and bets are placed as to who has the best hand. Bluffing is a major component of Mus. Cards range from 1 – 7, and there are 3 court cards, the Knave, the Cavalier, and the King. The 4 traditional suits are Coins, Cups, Swords, and Batons.
Mus is a popular Spanish game, of Basque origin. It is unusual in that although its mechanics - drawing cards and then betting on who has the best hand - are reminscent of gambling games like Poker, Mus is a partnership game which does not need to be (and usually is not) played for money.
Mus is actually quite quick and straightforward to play, with a lot of scope for bluff and jokes. Please don't be put off by the fact that the description below may look rather long and complicated. This is mainly because the betting procedure, though quite simple in practice, is a little tricky to explain accurately in words. Learn to play!
