5.0 out of 5 stars Making tarot fun again! 20 Jan 2011
By Theresa Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Misc. Supplies
Just when you thought that tarot has become rather ho-hum, along comes an innovation that makes it fun again. I love to play games - especially Boggle because I have never lost a game yet! (This is important to an admitted "sore loser" like myself.) So I was pretty excited to get a copy of Jude Alexander's "The Tarot Game". I wasn't sure what to expect but I will say for the record: this game rocks!

There are many ways that one could use this game: learning tarot, storytelling, meditation, problem solving, intuition building, fortune telling, personal sharing with loved ones or just plain fun.

The game comes in a handsome, sturdy box with a magnet closure. There are many pieces and parts to the game including:

Game board
Instructions
Major Arcana question sheet
Reading sheets (Novice, Enthusiast, Adept)
36 Activity Cards
90 Blessing Coins
9 Game Pieces (all beautiful tumbled stones!)
3 dice

It also includes a Keyword Tarot Deck for beginners but you can use your own deck insead. Everything is high quality and made from premium materials - from the box right down to the stone game pieces. The board is especially stunning - it is bright and colorful and features a winding snake as the path the playing pieces move along. Alexander put a lot of effort into making this game appealing to the eye and built to last.

The object of the game is to roll the dice, moving your piece along the snake and as you land on a segment, you act according to the rules provided on that space. For example: if you land on a Star, you pick a card from the activity card with the star on the back. Then you simply follow the instructions provided (ex: Shuffle your deck and draw a card. Spontaneously create a story inspired by the imagery on the card. Record this card on reading sheet.).

If you land on a Major Arcana, you will need to pull out the card that matches the space on which you've landed. You will then pick a number from 1 to 5 and the player on your right will ask you a question that corresponds with the number you have chosen on the Major Arcana question sheet. And then you answer this question as completely as you can. (Insights and ah-ha moments often come during this part!)

Land on an Infinity symbol and you can pretty much do whatever you feel like: stretch, dance, chill out, eat a snack, group hug, hand out a blessing coin - basically whatever you want to do. This imbues the game with creativity and invites playfulness.

The first time I played the game, it took a little time to set up and figure out the rules. But once I got the hang of it, I realized it was actually simple to set up and play along. All you need to do is divide your tarot deck into Major Arcana, Suits and Court cards and put them on the designated places (the Majors need to be in numerical order). Place the activity cards in their spots. Select your game piece and pick a reading sheet for each player (you must choose according to the player's experience level). Then, each player will choose 5 Blessing Coins (The Blessing Coins have words on them such as "fun", "loyalty", "gratitude"; these can be handed out throughout the game to each other - and this creates lots of bonding!). Next, one person will read the simple grounding meditation and then the game begins!

While playing with a group is fun, I also find this to be a lovely meditative tool for any questions you may be pondering or for those who want a fun way to explore the tarot. I can't say enough good about my experiences with this game. It's educational, inspirational, emotional, entertaining and thought provoking all at once. All ages can find great pleasure in The Tarot Game and I feel this also helps to give tarot a friendlier face to those who may be unfamiliar with it.

I heartily recommend this game and give it an enthusiastic 2 Swords Up! My Boggle has been officially retired to the back of the game closet in favor of The Tarot Game.
My days as a sore loser have also been retired as everyone who plays this game walks away a winner!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dice engined Fool's Journey! 15 Jun 2011
By J. F. Guerrero - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Misc. Supplies|Verified Purchase
This got to be the most original Tarot related product I've seen in years. It helps you learn to read Tarot intuitively while having fun and sharing quality time with fellow players or playing by yourself as a meditation tool. Rules are easy to learn and flexible enough to adapt them according to your creativity or mood.

The game design allows for people of different Tarot experience levels to sit down together and play at the same time, as the game focus on cooperation instead of competition everyone playing is involved into a win-win situation. I've been studying Tarot for 7 years, this game felt like fresh air as the game activities taught me to pay attention to details that enriched the concept I already had of the cards I worked with. Played it for the first time with my Tarot students, given the success it was I intent to keep on playing on the classroom on a regular basis and really look forward to play it with friends.

During the game I was surprised by the synchronicity between our questions, the spread and the cards we all players got while advancing spaces on the board, a true insightful reading obtained via the game! Somehow the playful environment make it easy for intuition and/or words to flow and you can always have a little help from other players.

I've read comments here and there about the box doesn't contain an actual Tarot deck (a color coded keyword deck is included) but I think if you're buying this game there is a very high probability you or the people you plan to play it with already own at least one deck! If not the case got one at the same time, be sure the game is going to speed up your learning curve.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Tool In The Quest for Tarot Realization. 7 July 2011
By Christopher H. Merrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Misc. Supplies|Verified Purchase
I purchased this "game" as a means to have a presentation for a tarot meet-up group I'm a member of. To my delight - as well as the delight of others - this is a wonderful tool to use either alone or with a group of people to learn more about oneself - and the connection with the Tarot. I feel now I have a closer relationship with some of the tarot cards and the meanings. The game comes with a very informative and helpful literature sheets including instructions and a sheet of questions to ask players to ponder when they land on a major arcana card space. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happily Monopolize Your Time! 1 Dec 2011
By Susan G. Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Misc. Supplies|Verified Purchase
I bought this game when it first came out and I love it. Fabulous presentation, colorful, and intriguing. It's a fun game to play that keeps you entertained and thinking (a perfect combination). It's great for people uncomfortable with Tarot because it brings it into the realm of common understanding, and yet wisdom if transmitted happily and in a fun context.

It's also great as a Tarot teaching tool. It gets students beyond the tension of "so much to learn," and into the the realm of "I can do this, and it will be fun."

I had an opportunity to play this with the creator, Jude Alexander, at the Readers Studio last year and it was a wonderful ice-breaker to get to know people and to have a little relaxed entertainment and fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun! 31 May 2012
By Amie Fournier-flather - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Misc. Supplies|Verified Purchase
This is a good quality product that tarot readers can have fun with whether you are just beginning to learn to read tarot or you have experience reading the cards. It comes with a deck of tarot for the game but you can also use your own deck. There are a lot of different pieces to the game but not a lot of compartments in the box to store them (snack size baggies work well if you like to keep things organized). The box itself is very nice with a magnetized closure. The game reminds me of a conglomeration of Snakes & Ladders meets Tarot meets Trivia - though the trivia-type questions are based on your interpretations more-so than actual facts.
