This infographic suggests that card games can be traced back to China and between 618 AD to 907 AD. Baccarat appears around about the 1400s as an early gambling game and we don’t get Solitaire or Patience until about the 1700s in Europe. Rummy and Gin Rummy are American inventions as is the Joker card which appeared first in 1857.
