From the beginning of time, sailors have been a superstitious lot and they used any method available to bring good luck and protection their way. One technique dealt with fortune telling using the Tarot. Meet here, a colorful cast of fantasy pirates, from elegant lady captains and playful cabin boys to crusty old sailors. Two fun and exciting games will bring the buccaneer out in you! (printed on back of box)
The Pirate Tarot is a 78 card deck that replicates wood carvings of pirate life. Each card does in fact look as if it could have been etched into wood. If you have ever seen a “wooden nickle” this is how I imagine them to look and feel. The deck is actually available in wood carving form, from Dragonfire Laser Crafts.
