Scratch & Create Magical Tarot

Scratch-off art

Description

This tarot is in book format, with 78 perforated cards that are designed to allow the owner to remove them from the book and have a usable deck.

If removed from the book, the cards would measure 7.5 cm wide X 10.5 cm long. The card stock is somewhat stiff, and the corners are square.

The backs are a reversible purple star pattern.

Strength is VIII and Justice is XI. The Fool is numbered 0.

The suits are Swords, Cups, Coins, and Wands. The court cards are Page, Knight, Queen, and King.

The minors are pips -- decorative arrangements of suit symbols.

The unique gimmick of this deck is that the cards are covered in a black coating that is meant to be scratched off, revealing complete scenes. 

However, I really like how it looks in its original state, with the coating intact. It looks like a trippy, colorful, minimalistic sort of Marseille tarot. 

Having read user reviews that suggest the coating is very hard to remove, I'm opting to leave my copy as-is, in its original form. Also, it appears that the art underneath is underwhelming and perfunctory. The rainbow outlines have a "cool factor" that the scenic art lacks.

I purchased this tarot from Amazon in April 2020; it was very inexpensive (under $5).
