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.

When you play the Tarot Game and land on a STAR space, you may be directed to select 5 cards from the full deck. Beginning “once upon a time” tell a short story from the images on the cards. Try to read the story in the order drawn, however as a variation, you may rearrange the cards.
Here is one pass at a possible story in the images shown. What is your story?
Once upon a time their was a passionate leader, however his vision for his constituents had been blurred over the years. He was no longer sure that his personal convictions and beliefs were of any use. Deciding that fresh ideas were needed, he approached his son and gave him the charge of venturing out to engage with the world. In doing so, the young man found that what was truly valued were matters of the heart. He gave to his father the gift of remembering to rule from his heart and to invest in personal relationships.
The challenge in this activity is to garner inspiration from the images before relying on what’s been learned about the cards through book study. The first card drawn becomes part of the Game reading, the main points of the story become part of it as well. In this case, King of Wands is take for the reading, along with possible notes ” to lead others I need fresh purpose, to entrust others, and develop relationships.”
Give it a try with any 5 cards drawn at random – for best results use a deck you seldom look at, so that the images will be fresh. Let me know how it goes!

“Jude Alexander’s Tarot Game is a delight to play–lively, fun, challenging. In short, a genuine game.”

“This game is a true original! It’s simple enough for non-readers to pick up but offers even seasoned readers a new way to experience the cards. It’s versatile enough for one person or a group, an adult or a child. It can be fast paced or slow, a long game or short.
I’ve played the game with my husband, our nine year-old daughter and our 6 year-old son. My husband had never used the tarot before but ended up creating a reading on his question as helpful as any professional! Our kids took to it with ease as well, having fun with answering questions about what the card meant to them and what they saw in it. My daughter especially liked the idea of the game being a way for her to use divination to answer questions like her mom!
Overall, I adore this game and the presentation of it is excellent. From the sturdy, professionally designed box and game pieces to the obvious years of knowledge that went into creating game-play, questions and explorations of the cards, The Tarot Game is a real winner!”
