If you request some help :
Don't be too specific but don't be too vague. It's rather hard to find the right way to ask but imagine yourself in a room with other players. You can't whisper and you need to solve a riddle, you have the right to ask for a clue those who have already solved it, but you don't want the other players to find before you. To understand what you're asking for, one should be at the same step. Don't spoil the steps for the others ! You can use metaphors if you want. Show us that you're smart!
Read this topic carefully, your question may have already been asked (and answered). There's no need to ask the same question twice, even if there's no answer.
If you help somebody :
Don't help him too much, don't deprive him the pleasure to find by himself, just guide him on the way without being too specific, using as much images, metaphors and maybe other riddles as you can. After all, you're smart too !
If everybody plays by the rules, things will be much more funny and no one will get hurt.
Write in a correct language, ban SMS style and try to avoid spelling mistakes as much as possible.
I figured out the history and names of the cards. I dont know what to do with the numbers. Is the order in which the cards are placed important? Do I have to find out what numbers are on the blank cards?
Getting the name of the cards is great ^^
The clue is here to allow you to understand what to do with numbers ! And you don't have to guess numbers on blank cards.
yeah, leave the cards in the order they are in.
Ok, I think I understand many points about this puzzle but I'm not seeing how to relate them all together =X
Ok, one last question... how important are the names? Because one of the names on the card differs from anything else I've seen.
Nothing in the game is not imporant, but sure, they are pretty important.

Okay, this one has me completely stumped. I don't know where to start. I don't understand a single thing about this level. These riddles are getting so hard it's making the game completely unfun... I've been on this one for the past 4 or 5 days and I still can not find a single piece of useful information other than the numbers on the cards and the somewhat-hidden words on the cards, all of which I have no idea what means. I don't know any card games (other than Solitaire). And even if I did, it doesn't appear to have any effect on this Flash program on where the cards are placed. It looks like yet another URL-manipulation riddle though...
Could really use some help here... I just want to get past this level and move on!
first of all, remember you have to be patient with this game. Sometime it takes more than a few days to succed.
On my opinion, you should read again this thread, some of your questions are answered here, and then focus on the clue. And if you encounter some difficulties, you can always ask your best friend who's field is always present when he may be usefull.
I've read this thread, I've asked a few people, I've searched all over the internet for the answer (itself), haven't found anything, haven't even gotten a CLUE on where to start!!
I have all the information in front of me. The numbers on the cards. The names on the cards. Wikipedia with the history. Another site with some tables with the names and suits/ranks. The clue. NONE OF IT makes ANY coherent sense! I can take the letters from the names and make nothing. I can take the numbers and punch them in as alt-codes and get nothing. I can take practically anything here and make absolutely nothing. The data is static. The clue says "card = card". The card it refers to is already the letter it refers to. There's no translation that can be done. There's no sequence here. There are no words. There is no input, translation, or output. There is NOTHING AT ALL I can work with!
I've read every piece of information I can find and still cannot find a single starting point for this obscene "riddle"... I haven't the slightest clue how anyone has managed to pass this level but they MUST have known some kind of French card game I'm missing...
Hmm ..... There is no suits/ranks to know and you don't need to know French card games. The only thing you need is the names of the cards ! And you must understand what the clue says
Never mind, a little bit of more obvious help pushed me in the right direction! The clue does help, but in a really confusing way.

It should also be noted that the numbers do have something to do with a p******* of some kind, just not the cards' p********. Leave them where they are.
Actually I think the clue was quite appropriate... It's meant to mislead you, which is pretty common in this game!
letter number five - I had to take an educated guess, but got it.
stuck on this level....
researched the names of the cards....
but dont know how to proceed....??????
any more hints please?
Another similar but more appropriate clue would be:
queen of clubs = e
Honestly, I think that would be too obvious.
Does it matter that I can't read the names on all the cards? Some names are too obscured for me to see.
phreakymonkey: Don't forget your friend below the clue.
So using Google will magically unobscure the names???? jc

Yeah it might"magically" find another internet page with that information, have you ever used a search engine before?
Actually, perhaps you should take your own advice and look up the word "obscure". Some of the actual names are a bit hard to make out, i.e. obscure. Black on black text can be a bit of a pain to read sometimes. Which I could have sworn the poster was referring to.
But thanks for the poor attitude, genius.
phreakymonkey: Keep your off-topic posts and your flames out of my help forum. First and last warning. If you have a problem with the level, post in the Your Opinion forum. If you have a problem with someone's post, take it up with a moderator in private or click the 'Report' button.
Additionally, back to the topic at hand, there's plenty of information outside of the riddle for you to make quite a fruitful Google search with. It doesn't even take that much imagination and costs nothing to try as many queries as you like.
For all those who are stuck on this level.. Knowing how to count is helpful! Also, you should google the cards and see what exactly is written on them if you can't make them all out.
I, for example, couldn't
Using the clue and knowing the names on the cards, I was able to come up with letters, they seem useless to me as any way I arrange them they make nothing. I'm sure that everything I've done is right as I have followed what is said here. Any extra push would really help.
