It’s not exactly Tarot, but it’s a fabulous deck of cards to help writers get through any writing blocks they might be facing … it’s the Writer Emergency Pack by John August.

Tavern Cards

January 25th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

Until I came across this Tavern Cards Kickstarter project, I’d never heard of ‘tavern generators’ before.

After googling the phrase, I discovered that there are a lot of them out there (though not in card form), and that they’re used by people to come up with tavern-based storylines and characters, mostly for gaming.

Hannah Lipsky developed her Tavern Cards for just that purpose, though she mentions that they can also be used as a regular playing card deck.

When I saw them though, my first thought was that they would be great for divination. They’ve got colouful and descriptive imagery, key words, and four suits.

What more would you need for a good reading? They’re almost a Tarot deck, just without any Majors.

Visit Lipsky’s project page to learn more. You might even want to support the deck and get a copy for yourself.

The White Rabbit Playing Cards

January 22nd, 2013 § 2 comments § permalink

Though it’s not Tarot, I really like The White Rabbit Playing Card deck by Shane Tyree and Erik Dahlman.

Based on the enchanting tales of Lewis Carroll, not only is this deck adorable, it could definitely be used for readings.

The Court cards area all beautifully illustrated and the pip cards have enough character in them to tell a story of their own.

The card I like best though, is the Joker, who in this case is the Cheshire Cat.

Take a look at the Kickstarter Project video below. In it Tyree tells us more about the project, and actually creates the Cheshire Cat card before our very eyes.

Dicecards

December 27th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Though they’re not Tarot cards, these Dicecards look like a lot of fun and could easily be used for divination if one was so inclined.

Designed by Ian Millington, each card of this regular playing card deck features pictures of various game pieces like dice, runes, scrabble tiles, poker chips, dominoes and role-play characters.

Though Millington doesn’t mention ‘reading’ the cards in his long list of what one might do with them, that’s what I would do if I had them.

Take a look at the video below to learn more, and/or visit the Dicecards Kickstarter project page.
