Product Description

Every card in the Lord of the Rings Tarot shows a scene from Middle-earth, the setting of J. R. R. Tolkien's famous trilogy. The text at the bottom of each card describes the scene chosen which corresponds to the meaning of the card. This deck follows the traditional tarot, but joins to it the spirit and mythological symbolism of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. In addition, this deck is also a card game for 2-6 players, ages 10-adult. Players journey to Middle-earth to destroy the One Ring. Tarot reader Terry Donaldson and artist Peter Pracownik co-created this deck as well as the Dragon Tarot. The game rules are by designer Mike Fitzgerald. This deck is available as a boxed set with Donaldson's guidebook The Lord of the Rings Tarot in which he discusses Tolkien's works as well as tarot techniques (272 pages). Donaldson is also the creator of the Lord of the Rings Oracle.

This deck's symbolism makes sense if you are familiar with Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings, however it does not have any traditional Tarot symbolism in its pictures. I don't agree with most of the interpretations in the sketchy booklet. I can't get detailed readings from this deck, although I can get accurate general readings. The cards are good for telling the atmosphere of a situation, but little else. As for the artwork, the pictures are beautiful, but small. Most of the scenes are of landscapes, and people are not usually the focus. However, I LOVE the Queen of Swords card - Eowyn is perfect!!!! If you are a deck collector or want a Tolkien novelty, then this would suit you. A serious reader should look for another deck.

First off, judging a tarot deck based on the religion of the man who inspired it is ridiculous. Judge it based on its merits as a TAROT DECK. And secondly, yes, Tarot is quite the Catholic tradition. I swear when I went to Italy, everyone I asked had a deck. But back to the topic at hand... I have yet to play the card game that this deck also functions as so I can't really say anything as to its quality, but I can most certainly say this has been the best tarot deck I have ever had the honor of owning. I've had these cards for i think 10 years and have never been let down by them. They've given me the most detailed and accurate readings out of any of my decks. I know many might not consider the artwork "beautiful", but it is still well done (certainly better than the godawful rider-waite) and stays true to the movies/books. For those of you who are concerned that the cards aren't exact replicas of the classic rider-waite symbolism, remember that tarot started based on playing cards which lacked all those pictures you're used to. And the rider-waite was just one interpretation of the Golden Dawn's recommendations for a proper tarot deck; the Thoth deck by Aleister Crowley follows the guidelines much more closely. (So what I'm getting at is that using the rider-waite as your golden standard is completely, stupidly arbitrary.) I recommend you try listening to the cards rather than relying on the confining interpretation of some book or cliche symbols. It has been exactly this, the deck's noncomformity and originality, that has provided me with more detailed readings than any other.

I bought this for my son as his first tarot deck, as he is a huge Tolkien fan. I have my issues with some of the choices of characters for some of the images (as some other reviewers mention), but overall it serves its purpose as a tarot deck...and most importantly, my son loves it and uses it. The 4 rating is mainly because of those strange choices people are talking about, and also because the game is a bit lame (my son deliberately threw away the instructions for it anyway, since he doesn't believe tarot cards should be played with).

I thank my ex-girlfriend Juno, with whom I shared many a psychic revelation, for the gift of these cards. The deep substance in the imagery of these cards, the symbolism of Tolkien profoundly integrated with the use of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, evoke astral journeys to the very gates of heaven. If you own one of these decks, don't listen to the fuss about Crowley's Thoth deck: your LOTR tarot deck is extremely potent, and deserves a serious student's full consideration in the matters of psychic divination.

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.

My "Lord of the Rings Tarot Deck & Card Game," has grown on me over time. When I first got it, I thought it was more a game. I looked at the cards but could not find any serious meanings within them regarding tarot. But that has changed.

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.
