i want to make a turn base card game,suppose there are four players, each player gets 13 random cards without repeating, i can program in python,

import random
cards = ['club1' , 'club2',  'club3',  'club4', 'club5', 'club6','club7','club8','club9','club10' ,'club11','club12','club13','heart1', 'heart2', 'heart3',  'heart4', 'heart5', 'heart6', 'heart7',  
'heart8', 'heart9','heart10',  'heart11', 'heart12','heart13',  'diamond1','diamond2','diamond3', 'diamond4', 'diamond5','diamond6', 'diamond7','diamond8','diamond9','diamond10','diamond11',  'diamond12', 'diamond13', 'spades1','spades2', 'spades3', 'spades4', 'spades5', 'spades6', 'spades7', 'spades8', 'spades9','spades10','spades11', 'spades12', 'spades13' ]

num_to_selects = 13
player1 = random.sample(cards,num_to_selects)

remainingcardsset1 = list(set(cards)-set(player1))

player2 = random.sample(remainingcardsset1,num_to_selects)
remainingcardsset2 = list(set(remainingcardsset1)-set(player2))
player3 = random.sample(remainingcardsset2,num_to_selects)
player4 = list(set(remainingcardsset2)-set(player3))

print (player1)

i am new to gdscript, i tried with set method, but set not working in gdscript, how to allocate 13 cards to each player without repeating?

That answer did not return remaining cards list,

Yes it did? The last snippet maintains two disjoint sets cards and picked_cards. Actually the only comments under that answer are precisely about your problem…
