In this dream I was playing cards with a group of people. But the cards didn't match, some were dark and mysterious and they often had totally different sizes and looks. There was a chinese woman playing and I suspected her of cheating. I took over the dealing of the cards and was counting the cards, to make sure there was the right number. I found a couple of duplicates (Ace of Spades, Four of Clubs) and called her out on them. She tried to deny it. Then to count the cards I went around matching about 5 cards at a time to a stack of 5 books each. I counted them all out, and then when I went back to collect them, there were more like 6 books/cards in each stack. I was pretty mean to the lady when I thought she was cheating (and she was probably), but feeling bad for being mean I apologized.
