5.0 out of 5 stars A Game of Two Arcana, 6 May 2012
This review is from: The "Lord of the Rings" Tarot Deck (Toy)
The Lord of the Rings Tarot Deck and Card Game is most extraordinary. Such is the artwork that the cards appear almost three-dimensional and every card depicts scenes from the books/films with vivid colours set against a black border. Each card bears a few words about the scene it is depicting e.g. 'The Hermit' - 'Tom Bombadil is careful not to get involved'; 'Six of Swords' - 'Bilbo and his Dwarf friends use barrels to escape from the Elves'; 'Two of Cups' - 'Faramir embraces Eowyn as they fall in love'; 'Three of Cups' - 'Bilbo is reading in his library to learn new skills and gain new abilities'.

The fact that this deck is also a card game may seem to some to be irreverent, but a few centuries ago people were playing the game of Taroch or Tarrochi with Tarot cards. The rules for the Lord of the Rings game are different from the original Tarrochi game, and are explained in the booklet, whilst the card accompanying the deck shows a 'Quick Guide to Victory Points'. The booklet also gives some interesting suggestions for using the cards as a focus for meditation.

This deck fascinates me and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is remotely interested in 'The Lord of the Rings'.
