Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Do regular tarot cards work for playing French tarot games?

I want to buy a pack of tarot cards to play “jeu de tarot” but I’m not sure which ones to buy. Can I play the game with one of those divinist kind of tarot cards or are the packs different? Where can I buy the French tarot cards anyway? (Does anyone have any specific brand that they like?)

Looks like you use a traditional deck… 78 cards which include four suits, each with 10 “pip” cards and four “court” cards (pages, knights, queens, kings) and then 22 Major Arcana cards (the Empress, Death, The Sun etc)
The tarot suits go as follows:
Swords are Spades
Wands are Clubs
Cups are Hearts
Pentacles/Disks/Coins are Diamonds

Almost any modernly produced tarot decks (the ones produced for diviners like myself) will probably do if it’s just games you want to play. A good deck if you arn’t overly concerned with divination, is the oldest known illustrations… a reproduction of the Visconti tarot available from Los Scarabeo. (these were commisioned by a renaissance italian family specifically for card games and featured gold leafing)… they have no real ‘pictures’ on the “pip” cards… just beautiful renderings of the suits in their numbers as pips. Be aware that most, if not all, modernly produced tarot decks will number the major arcana by roman numeral instead of the more familiar numbering system, so if you are worried that you won’t be able to understand the roman numeral system in reguards to the game, then you may need a specialty deck.

The most traditional deck for using for divination would be the Rider Waite tarot… but I find the artwork ugly and if you’re not a diviner, then they probably would hold little interest for you. Otherwise, just find a deck you find beautiful… if you’re going to play with cards, why not pick something where the images are appealing to you? Stick with things that claim to be based mostly on the Rider Wait system, however, otherwise you might find the names of the Major Aracana cards confusing when trying to learn the game (sometimes they change them… Death becomes “Transition” or the World becomes “The Aeon” and occasionally a card is added or dropped or the names of the court cards are shifted around etc…)
Best of luck and have fun!

Recognizing Zodiac Correlations in Tarot Cards

Written by ClairvoyantConni

Since the age of 2 I have had encounters and a personal relationship with loved ones crossed. In my opinion there are no better friends you can have. They are honest, without the capacity to hold ego or materialistic views and always give you accurate information to help you through whatever you are going through. They have the ability to see the past, present and future without judgement. Their accuracy is uncanny.

Having the gift of sight, hearing, sensing, smelling and tasting as well as empathy and the gift of communicating with spirit, gives me the ability to accurately read you without judgement.

Spirit has entrusted me with these gifts to help you in all areas of your life. It has been an exciting journey. This gift is generational and my grandmother and father both had the gift as well as my children.

I have assisted over 15,598 people online in the last 9 years alone. I have thousands of other clients as well. This is what I dedicate my life to as I know it is my life calling.
