QR – Cure – Quizzing Realms – 212

Here’s an interesting bit of trivia that should get your danders up.

Which card game is supposed to be an Indian invention during the times of the British Raj, and is apparently a protest against the manner in which India and other colonies were exploited? That is probably why the Jacks, generally considered the lowest in the face cards, have the highest points, and the Kings and Queens have no points at all!

I just want the name of the game.

I leave this unmoderated for a day, and a couple of more answers trickle in, and both are correct! So, we have six correct answers, including the two partially correct ones from jagdish and anonymous. This is indeed 29, the game!


Post your answers here. Wait for them to be moderated, which will take a day or two to be done.
