King of Hearts – a quiz

So, here I am sitting in a much delayed flight to New York. Hope to take off at some point of time. Time for a quick quiz question. I was discussing this with Sharmila during our date night yesterday. And no, she was not referring to me as king of Hearts… We were talking about cards.

What is the one distinctive feature of King of Hearts (physical feature) compared to other Kings in a deck? Try guessing without seeing the cards. Then look at the cards and see if you find it.

Do not post the answer in the comments section.

If you notice carefully there is another distinctive feature of that card compared to the other three kings. Can you find out what it is?

    Good one! Someone told me the diff when I was learning the game of 29. But it is also true that every king is unique in at least 1 feature than rest of his peers.

    Rajib Roy For a change I got it right at the first attempt ! I sport a thick moustache with more hair on it than on my scalp. When somebody is described as professional, the physical manifestation of professionalism I notice is “King of hearts” appearance- clean shaven !

    As most of you have found out by now, the King of Hearts does not have a moustache!!! Also, the sword, unlike all other Kings, is placed behind his neck/shoulder area!!
