I wonder what percentage of American households don't have at least one deck of playing cards stashed away? While I'm off looking that up, enjoy today's Brain Game: Three Questions about playing cards (those from a common 52-card deck). Good luck!

1. The names of what two specific cards in
a 52-card deck 
contain the letter "U" twice?

2. What is the most obvious difference between
the two jokers included in a typical deck of cards?

3. What is the only card in the diamonds suit whose
design is NOT identical upside-down and right-side-up?

NOTE: The text of question #3 was tweaked after readers pointed out some issues. Thanks!

Here are the ANSWERS.
