For those who aren't familiar with the cards: they're using a Neapolitan deck, which is the most-used deck in Southern Italy where I grew up. Neapolitan decks have 40 cards of 4 suits: coins, cups, swords, and clubs. There are 7 number cards per suit, plus three figures: lady (8), knight (9), and king (10). The cards are also smaller than most other decks, including the classic French deck, hence why they look especially tiny in Adrien's big hands.
