Which playing card is higher, a jack, or a queen?

Depends on the game. In Euchre, highest trump is the jack of the trump suit, called the "right bower." The second-highest trump is the jack of the other suit of the same color called the "left bower." In Black Jack, the suit means nothing. You are simply keeping track of your card values.

As you probably know, each deck has 52 cards divided into four suits: clubs, spades, hearts, and diamonds. Each suit is comprised of an Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and numbered cards 2 – 10.

The rank for each card is determined by the number of pips on it. Ranking indicates which cards within a suit are better, higher or more valuable than others, whereas there is no order between the suits unless defined in the rules of a specific card game.
