marja (berry) +‎ pussi (bag) --This game is a variant of a German card game, the French word for marriage: mariage, so called because a "marriage" of king and queen of the same color is an advantageous combination in it. The game was described in Frauenzimmer-Lexicon of 1715, and a currently played variant of it is known in Germany as Sechsundsechzig (sixty-six). The Finnish word marjapussi sounds somewhat similar and has become the Finnish name of this game.
