Imagine you love a certain card system and basically having only just one or two decks to read with. Now, there are hundreds if not thousands of cartomancers doing that on purpose – but if you were one of them you would not be on a review site ;-). Anyway, if you are a Kipper reader that was your reality for over a hundred years (if you started eh…young). Original Kipper was THE deck and while some designers added new material in recent history, taste and usefulness made sure most Kipper lovers forcibly stayed with their Original Wahrsagekarten. The Card Geek’s Kipper Cards deck might just’ve changed history.
If you are already a Kipper fan it is highly unlikely the release of Toni Puhle’s (a.k.a The Card Geek’s) Kipper book has eluded you. If it did, lucky you stumbled unto this review!

A Rider is a Rider, it does not matter if in deck 1 it rains or in deck 2 he wears flaming red shoes (tarotists would definitely take that into account). Besides: it is just a new system to learn and with every new thing you need a good foundation. DonnaLeigh’s Tarot Tribe Beyond Worlds Lenormand Tutorial has a ra…
Interesting Kipper tutorial, especially when working with Ciro Marchetti’s new Kipper deck. Fortune Buchholtz worked on the LWB for the deck and in her YouTube channel she explains several ways of reading. In this example the line of 5. Easy-to-follow. Besides spreads she has several videos on history. Sometimes items can be a little long or she doesn’t get to the point immediately, but not too troublesome. Very useful video’s!
