Decks , Review , Tarot / 12 November 2016

October 2016 saw the release of another innovative deck, by Nora Huszka & Steph Engert. The Starlight Dragon Tarot, a 79 card-deck inspired by dragons, stands out due to a strong elemental orientation and surprising art and shapes. With a name like that you’d expect the motherload in fiery breath creatures and scales, but that isn’t the case. The Starlight…

Decks , Review , Tarot / 5 November 2016

Uusi is renowned for their creative playing cards, but with the Pagan Otherworlds Tarot they’ve really conquered the world of divination.

The deck uses a theme never used before (Magick throughout English history) in a dynamic graphic novel drawing style. And -here’s the kicker for everyone interested in something extra original: every card holds secrets to a puzzle. I got the chance to see if I could fit the pieces together and test this divination tool.

Filigree Tarot in Disney-style
News , Tarot / 6 March 2016

Sometimes I think I am on social media too much, but then I find a gem like this and think ‘Nah…’. The Filligree Tarot is a Disney-look deck without the cloyingly sweet overlay and -hopefully- meanings.

From what I have seen so far Teo Hoble, the artist behind the “work in progress”, really tries to embed the deck not only into a decent tarot system (RWS), but makes the court cards more approachable by depicting them as their ‘possible job’ or…
