My wife was into Tarot cards when I first met her. She did my tarot reading and the results turned out to be vague but admittedly accurate in some general respects, a bit like a horoscope can seem relevent to you, but in reality, they are all relevent to you such is the way they are written. I asked for an immediate new reading but she said that you weren't supposed to do that - it's bad luck! Yes bad luck for the people who sell Tarot cards as, like horoscopes, the readings are vague and you can find the facts in your life to fit in with the readings.

I have this game and it is awesome. you play on teams, one has the advantage of more players and the team of two players must do their best to over come the larger team. Scores are kept to determine the grand winner of the game. The cards you buy for reading fortunes are no longer the same as this game. If you haven't played the game you should give it a shot. I picked up an old deck when I was last in France.
