At least I can tell you WHY now....

Sorry about the delay (yet again) of the release of Golden Tarot.

Apparently there was a problem due to the incompatability of the gilded edges & the varnish, so USGS decided to delay release and get the problem sorted.

Painful though it is to have to wait, I prefer that they did that than risked releasing a deck that couldn't withstand everyday use.

I guess teething problems like this were the risk we took on when they decided to make it such a lush high-quality edition. Should look a lot better than the usual cheap cruddy printer's embossing foils that are often used on "gilded" decks - or at least I hope so after all these months

US Games have also advised me that they're having a large booth at a New Age Retailer's Trade Show in Florida in January, and that Golden Tarot will be making it's first real public appearance there. Pity I can't be there, but I guess Australia's a bit far away to pop over for a couple of days

I'm hoping to get a substantive release date from the publishers within the next day or two & will let you know here (not that I expect you'll believe me any more!).
