I have a deck of (52) cards where the cards have no suits and besides unique artwork on each of them they are differentiated by numbers from 1 to 52 (backside is unique as well, but let's ignore that and assume standard back).

What games can be played with this deck? I am looking for ones that use all the cards (as opposed to a subset). Please include links/references to the rules.

I have found a list of games that can be played with numbered cards on BGG, but most either require more cards (including ones numbered above 52) or would not use the whole deck.

That question was closed (off-topic), and the linked Meta post pointed here, so here I am. Can anyone give me suggestions?

@Attila good question, but unfortunately I don't have a clue

I think the best path to finding games would be to look for tarot-based games which focus on the illustrations rather than the values and suits.
 
[wave] The suitability of a given game probably depends mostly on the kinds of illustrations in your deck. Here's two games that might work with your cards as illustration-based prompts, rather than using the numbers for randomization:

Imaginarium by momatoes is a cooperative storymaking game for 2 to 9 players, where you build a story through the revelations of the major arcana. Taste the storytelling secrets of tarot through a sandbox RPG that isn't afraid to throw twists at you. Easy setup, no-holds-barred setting creation, freedom to build your story...if the tarot cards are amenable to your twisted plans.

What Artistry This Wilderness by Sealed Library is a simple travel encounter subsystem for fantasy RPGs. It's a celebration of landscapes and our art depicting them.

The art on the cards is faces of various (real and imaginary) people depicted in Mexican day-of-the-dead style (by the Poet Mr Fab). As such, they do not resemble the traditional tarot card illustrations. Mostly male, some female others are couples. I can give numbers of distribution, if anyone thinks they are useful, but I still think the most useful feature on the cards are their numeric value
 
Sure, in theory the numbers are the most useful thing. But in practice you're a lot more likely to find games that use random pictures of people rather than games that use a randomized set of exactly 52 sequential numbers.
So while out of the set of all potential games the cards could be used for, a 52-number game seems like it'd get the most use out of this particular deck... it's also one of the less likely games to actually find.
