comment English folk saying or proverb involving the number four (of people)?
The poem my grandmother used to quote to me went something like "Two's company/Three's a crowd/Four's too much/And five's not allowed"... but I can't seem to find a reference or the rest of it online.

Considering the word has the plural "geometries" I would think it would have to be singular.

comment Card with 10 tickets. What is it called?
I'm not clear on what the physical transaction is that is taking place here, and that tends to determine the name. If there are physical tickets torn out, it is a book of tickets. If it is a card which is scanned and not physically altered, it is a "pass". If it is a card which is punched or otherwise physically marked, it is, as OP and @SrJoven mentioned, a "punch card".
