1.0 out of 5 stars Not the traditional Tarot layout - beginners avoid., 16 Oct. 2002
This review is from: Merlin Tarot (Misc. Supplies)
I couldn't work with this deck. It does not have the traditional "suits" of cups, wands etc. but instead has things such as "fish". Many of the cards are very boring with simple line drawings of, say, five fishes, on a blue background. I wasn't taken with this at all as it has no character and certainly very little in the way of Tarot imagery. As such, it's hopeless for beginners and will certainy confuse them as it's names etc. will not tie in with any Tarot book with which they are learning.
Poor quality.

I can appreciate the writer's confusion with this deck - it is not a simple straightforward tarot deck but one that has it's roots in pre-medieval times and history.... if you are a genuine seeker of the art and REALLY want to learn the true and truth of the tarot then the Merlin Tarot is definite for you - but be warned it is not for the faint hearted, nor for those who wish merely to dabble, and does need the companion book The Complete Merlin Tarot to aid and assist working with the cards and understanding their background and meaning ... if you have the truth and honesty to learn and work with these cards then you will find your skills and art enhanced more than 100 times over - and the sense of truth and achievement in your abilities and capablities with this deck enhanced even more than that.
