Announcement - Playing Cards


We would like to open up this area of History & Iconography to include more discussions about Playing Cards and gaming with Regional decks. Although there are already some discussion on this topic, we feel that there is scope to expand this area of history further. The early decks were primarily used for gaming, and many meanings and methods (divination-wise) were derived from the early gaming rules. So this area will also welcome more about their history, gaming rules, the subtle differences among the playing cards, their regional patterns, etc. It would be very nice to see some imbedded images of historical playing cards including the transformation decks. :)

This will not be an area for reading with playing card decks as that is still being housed in the Oracles forum.

Any questions or suggestions, please PM Moonbow* and/or Bernice.

Thanks everyone.
