Allow me to explain a reading: I array the cards in a "Tree of Life" pattern, starting with Kether, working down through the other nine sephiroth, finishing with Malkuth. At each card, I stop to contemplate the meaning of the card. Because the cards are so disturbingly beautiful, like a Nazareth song, I can contemplate the deeper meaning for long periods of time.
Take this first card I drew, placing it over Kether, "the crown": "The Lovers - Aragorn is reunited with his love, Arwen." How awesome! Aragorn is not only male, but an earthbound creature, a man (human). Arwen is Elven, she personifies the spirit world. Because Aragorn, the corporeal and earthly, has united sexually with his love, the spiritual realm, you can tell this makes a happy situation within the center of our intellectual existence. It is Tai Chi - the Great Ultimate. It symbolizes the very Gates of Heaven, which are indeed within us.
In the position of Chockma - wisdom - I lay an Ace of Cups -- "Galadriel's mirror shows many things, but wisdom lies in understanding what is shown." Chillingly personal. Sam kneels on a toadstool sprinkled lawn, while Frodo gazes into the mysterious vision well, under an erie and luminous moon. The Elven Queen spreads her arms over her dominion.Read more ›
This is one you have to take a close look at, or it can pass you right by without one even realizing what an nice LOTR collector's piece it is, plus what an important tarot reading tool it is.
The box itself is quite tricky to manage. To keep it in its best collector's shape, one should leave it in place and simply slide the cards and their tuck box out of the pocket they are in along one side of the box to examine them.
This set is published by U.S. Games.
Inside the tuck box, you will find a LWB entitled "The Lord of the Rings Tarot Deck & Card Game: Tarot developed by Terry Donaldson, Artwork developed by Peter Pracownik, Game rules by Mike Fitzgerald," along with a Title card, 78 "tarot" or "game" cards, plus an extra card entitled "The Lord of the Rings Tarot Card Game A Quick Guide to Victory Points" which has to do with playing the game.
The game play is explained on pages 28-39 of the LWB and is explained beginning in the following section: "The Lord of the Rings Tarot Card Game - Rules by Mike Fitzgerald" It states "For 2-6 players, Ages 10 to adult." Object of the Game is stated to be: "In their quest to reach Mount Doom, players try to acquire the highest number of Victory Points." As a round ends, the players reach Mount Doom. The journey is represented by cards discarded from your hand into the Journey Pile (the discard pile).
Along the way, players can be influenced by forces from Middle Earth or by Dark Forces.Read more ›

My son likes giving his friends reading from his new tarot deck.Published 10 months ago by Mary Ivins
The cards are in used condition. Good shape, but not pristine. It's at a good price. I didn't appreciate the game component, but I didn't read the directions either.Published on November 3, 2013 by Claire Karas
