I Chiostri (?) è un set di cinquantadue carte e costituisce l’unica  mazzo noto completo di carte da gioco illuminati ordinarie (?) ( al contrario dei tarocchi ) del XV secolo . Vi sono quattro semi , ciascuna composta di un re , una regina , un fante e dieci carte numerali . I simboli  sono basati su attrezzi associati alla caccia ,  corni da caccia , collari per cani , le pastoie segugio (?) , e cappi di gioco (?) .  Le cifre , che sembrano essere basate su modelli franco- fiamminghi , sono stati disegnate a mano. I costumi dei personaggi sono esagerati e talvolta anacronistici e suggeriscono una satira di mode stravaganti alla corte di Borgogna .

The Cloisters set of fifty-two cards constitutes the only known complete deck of illuminated ordinary playing cards (as opposed to tarot cards) from the fifteenth century. The are four suits, each consisting of a king, a queen, a knave, and ten pip cards. The suit symbols, based on equipment associated with the hunt, are hunting horns, dog collars, hound tethers, and game nooses. The value of the pip cards is indicated by appropriate repetitions of the suit symbol. The figures, which appear to be based on Franco-Flemish models, were drawn with a bold, free, and engaging, if somewhat unrefined, hand. Their exaggerated and sometimes anachronistic costumes suggest a lampoon of extravagant Burgundian court fashions. Although some period card games are named, it is not known how they were played. Almost all card games did, however, involve some form of gambling. The condition of the set indicates that the cards were hardly used, if at all. It is possible that they were conceived as a collector’s curiosity rather than as a deck for play.
