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.

I met James for the first time at Readers Studio in New York last April. His class “Fool to Fortune” resonated so well with me. He has an extremely positive attitude and unique method of working with tarot. Here’s what he says about The Tarot Game…
“The Tarot Game is a fun and effective training tool for learning the basics of tarot, and it challenges even tarot experts by having them actively perform the essence of the cards, which is very seldom done.”

Last spring Magikal Musings played the game…
A unique concept, The Tarot Game consists of a game board, 78 cards containing keywords for each tarot card, 3 dice, 9 polished stone game pieces, 90 blessing coins, and laminated reading sheets that players fill out during the game. In order to play the game a traditional tarot deck must be used. The game does not come with one.

Koneta of New Paths Tarot gives voice to The Tarot Game in this innovative review. She even discovers that TG (that’s what it likes to be called) wants to get out of the house and go to parties.
