What will happen to me? My program? My career?
The Silicon Valley Tarot knows. Created by Thomas Scoville, this tarot deck became “flavor of the month” on the Internet before a single tree died to create a real card. But everyone who saw it wanted a real, physical deck . . . and so we printed one.
The hardcopy version of the Silicon Valley Tarot is a real 70-card deck, with both major and minor arcana, and includes a 44-page guidebook with Scoville’s oracular interpretations, and instr

    Geek life collides head-on with the occult, July 1, 2000
    This review is from: Silicon Valley Tarot (Steve Jackson games) (Game)

    This is a pretty darned hysterical novelty, as well as a great overview of the Geek Life. This is not really a book, but a satirical deck of Tarot cards, with Silicon Valley-style updates. Like, instead of The Fool and the Wheel of Fortune, you get The Hacker and The IPO. The suits of cups, wands, swords, and pentacles have been replace by cubicles, networks, disks, and computer hosts. There is a companion guide of card interpretations, but mostly it’s just an excuse for wacky commentaries on Silicon Valley and dot.com excess. There’s also instructions for a game you can play called “ram” as well as how to do a straight Tarot reading — but I wouldn’t use this deck to see the future of anything other than a high-teck startup. Most of the people I know who have bought this deck have simply enjoyed turning over the cards and laughing along with the joke.

    This is a great novelty/game for geeks, though managers and high-tech biz people will get a kick out of it, too — and as the SV Tarot’s web site says, “Cheaper than a consultant. Same Results.” That pretty much sums it up.
