The History of Indian Card Games

Card games have been played in India for centuries, with evidence of early games dating back to the 16th century. Many of these games were influenced by European card games brought over by traders, while others were developed locally. Indian card games have always been a popular way for people to socialise, gamble, and test their luck.

Teenpatti is a popular Indian card game similar to poker. In Teenpatti 2020, players predict which of two players will win after each is dealt three cards in a single deck game. Andar Bahar, also known as Katti, is a traditional Indian betting game where the game presenter draws a card as a Joker and then draws a card to Andar and Bahar in turn. The game ends when the presenter draws a card with the same value as the Joker, and the side with that card wins. Both games are simple yet interesting and have been enjoyed for centuries in India.
