It's a simple and elegant translation. I had worked out my own translation that was awkward and incorrect. Thanks so much for the wonderful service.

Cartes retournées.


Explanation:
If it is about a game that is played with some cards hidden, as in casino poker, “Cartes retournées” is correct. If it is about ONE card you can use “Atout” or even “Joker”.

cacher son jeu


Explanation:
s'il s'agit d'un texte littéraire, l'expression peut être l'équivalent du français "cacher son jeu" = agir sans montrer ses intentions réelles.

Mais il faudrait le contexte.
