They are all blessing coins that have been featured in our newsletter throughout the year. The “coins” which are actually durable golden-colored cardboard rounds are used during play of the Tarot Game. They act as rewards and encouragement. Imagine you have been asked to “tell us something about your mother,” having pulled the Empress card. This may create an emotional story that you share with fellow players. Then players may gift you with blessing coins…such as Memory, Love, or Protection.
In the new issue of Recreation For The Soul, we discuss and play with blessing coin “Passion.” Take a look at it here.
I was absolutely delighted that Barbara Moore shared her game story on her blog at Practical Tarot. She discovered, as many do, that there is “much storytelling and sharing of emotions and experiences”… the game can really take awhile to play!
This not to say that a faster game can’t be managed. If you are playing with more than a few people, I recommend each player use a three or four card spread only. In this way, the game play is completed in 1 hour or so. In depth, larger spreads are wonderful for solo play or for two players.
Facilitating the game is an art. As Barbara noted in her story…players tend to look to their host for how to proceed. She realized that by stepping back from managing the game, “soon everyone was comfortable and letting their creative juices flow.”
There is no right or wrong way to play. Rules and the pieces and parts of The Tarot Game are the foundation to get you started. I love how Barbara suggest ways to streamline the game, choosing or eliminating the various layers of the game.

Featured in this issue is the Ace of Cups from the unpublished Tarot de St. Croix. I’ve truly enjoyed my collaboration with Lisa. You’ll find more of her tarot images while playing The Tarot Game’s free demo.
Pair up with your spouse or good friend and try the tarot storytelling activity or the Fun 4 Soul game. I’d love to hear how it goes.
