The African Tarot Deck

by Marina Romito

The African Tarot Deck
Price: $15.00
Number of cards in deck: 78

Measurements: 2.3 x 3.05 inches, or 60 x 78 mm. Small.

Back of card: It will fool you. White, with a square picture of a turtle on green grass, blue sky, orange sun, in the upper left & lower right corners. Doesn't look like the back of a card, but is refreshingly cute. Can be inverted.

Booklet included: Yes, 55 pages, 2.37 x 3 inches, or 58 x 76 mm. Includes tiny B&W illustrations.

Publisher: US Games. Printed in Belgium.

Comments: This cute little deck looks like the Rider deck, redrawn & recolored by rather careful urban school kids, eg, we didn't see a lot that looked African.

And it's whimsical. The High Priestess holds what looks like a roll of toilet paper. The Queen of Pentacles wears a sports bra. The Lovers look like they've had second thoughts. The packaging is no less entertaining. The deck is packed inside a small brown corrugated box with a lid that fits snugly. Not only is this cute, it's also one of the better packaging solutions we've seen.

This is a fun deck. The shapes are simple, the colors are bold & bright. Small enough to fit in a pocket or purse. Use this when you want to have fun.
