The Zombie Tarot: An Oracle of the Undead with Deck and Instructions
By Paul Kepple and Stacey Graham
Publisher: Quirk Books; Cards edition (June 5, 2012)
You’ve never seen tarot cards quite like these. Imagine the celebrated “Rider Deck” infused with the horrors of Night of the Living Dead, and the result is The Zombie Tarot—a crazy, campy interpretation of a classic divination system.
In this zombified parallel universe, wands become limbs, pentacles are biohazard symbols, and the Major Arcana is full of shambling corpses. Along with the 78-card deck, readers will receive instructions in a 96-page full-color book; its contents explain how to survive the zombie apocalypse and forecast your future using one of three different card layouts.
The secrets of The Zombie Tarot await you!
Thumbing through the deck:
Zombies and Tarot cards, what more do you need to know?
I loved the packaging. It looks like a box of ammunition, and as we all know, ammo and divination come in handy during a zombie apocalypse. The card stock is very good. The artwork is drop-dead gorgeous. The cards have a retro look that makes me think of old horror magazines and comics.
I really loved the devil depicted as a cigarette machine on the Devil card. The deck is stacked (pun intended) with humor. You will enjoy going through each and every card. The booklet is brief but it gives you the basics of Tarot in a nutshell. Having said that, I would suggest Learning the Tarot: A Tarot Book for Beginners (link) or Tarot Plain and Simple (link).
Zombie fans should love this deck as should Tarot card collectors. I can’t keep my nephew out of them. I highly recommend this deck of cards. Zombie Tarot is a divination tool that make you use your BRAAAINSSSS…
