The Zombie Tarot: An Oracle of the Undead with Deck and Instructions

You’ve never seen tarot cards quite like these. Imagine the celebrated “Rider Deck” infused with the horrors of Night of the Living Dead, and the result is The Zombie Tarot—a crazy, campy interpretation of a classic divination system.

In this zombified parallel universe, wands become limbs, pentacles are biohazard symbols, and the Major Arcana is full of shambling corpses. Along with the 78-card deck, readers will receive instructions in a 96-page full-color book; its contents explain how to survive the zombie apocalypse and forecast your future using one of three different card layouts. 

The secrets of The Zombie Tarot await you!

  1. a refreshing tongue in cheek deck that packs many surprises Well, what can I say that hasn’t already been said :) This deck is a tarot deck first and foremost. It does not stray too far from the RWS imagery, but obviously it comes with a zombie twist. So yes, it is a themed deck but I do not see this as being a novelty deck by any means. Those who want to stay true to tarot will get a reading from it without being taken out of their comfort zone. Those who want to bring a sense of fun to their readings, will perhaps see this is a deck that can certainly open the gates to many a tongue in cheek reading.I did a reading today and the recipient was open for a tongue in cheek zombie style. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to plant the tongue in the cheek and type away. Yet when I read back over my ramblings there was still a recognisable serious message underpinning the humour. I think this deck will be a stayer and will be used when it is appropriate to be a little light hearted.As for the quality of the product, you just cannot beat it. I mean come on, under $12 for this? It is worth that and more. The box is sturdy and is very well made to go with the deck. Read the small print on the side of the lid to get an idea of what awaits. Then when you peel off the lid, you see the ammo casings around the side. It really does resemble a box of ammo. The small book does only have a small amount of text per card, but it uses 50 words when only 50 are needed if that makes sense. Besides which, it then allows the reader to expand in their own style without spoonfeeding, or dulling their own intuition. I loved the wee adverts at the back of the book which of course – are zombie related and again not to be taken seriously.As for the deck, I have heard many people complain about standard of cardstock of modern day decks. They are either too flimsy, too slippery, too small, too big. The list goes on. This seems about right to me. I can hand over hand shuffle, and they are fairly thick so will stand up to the rigours of regular use. The borders are small, thus leading to good sized card images. It has a sepia / 1950′s feel to it throughout.Would I recommend this? Yes, to those who are already familiar with the RWS tarot. You can fall straight into using it out of the box and trust me – you will be itching to do your own zombie style readings :) Those who are new to tarot may find the images are a little too off centre to read straight off the bat so to speak, but it wouldn’t take much to get a lot from this deck as a newbie. The book really does help no end.Even though we are only 6 months into 2012, this may end up being voted as my deck purchase of the year on a certain tarot forum. It is refreshing, different and does not take itself seriously.

  2. More than 5 stars! If you are into Zombies and Psychic development, this deck is going to charm you. It is fun, nice quality, art and style can’t be better, and the symbolism, very deep. Get it!

  3. Doubleshot Reviews book review All I know about tarot readings I learned from watching movies/tv, so I am almost positive I know nothing about doing a proper reading. However, when I received my copy of The Zombie Tarot in the mail I sat down and read through the manual and then began scanning the cards…hours later I was ready to attempt a reading. I say hours because the cards are so amazingly detailed that I had to spend time scrutinizing each one at length.The manual in The Zombie Tarot gives you several card layouts in order to conduct your reading. I choose to use the ‘Gravestone’ layout as it seemed most fitting to a reading for surviving the undead.Here are the meanings behind 3 of the 6 cards I drew:Card #1 The Knight of Cups: Romantic*Adventure*Moody – He’s the one with the ready smile and a surfboard underneath his arm. A natural charmer, the Knight of Cups is always ready to schmooze-and always keeps one eye on the exit. He can be fun to have around, but his mood will change like the surf, and he’s often likely to steal more than a kiss. Watch your heart, literally.Card #3 The Star: Recognition*Inspiration*Achievements – You’re on the right track for the important things in life while good luck and a fresh attitude bring new opportunities. Take a minute to revel in your accomplishments and then move on to the next level of awesome. Others look to you for inspiration and guidance while scraping zombie goo off their shoes . What’s your plan?Card #6 The Sun: Success*Enlightenment*Hope – Sweet success! The morning sun has risen and the rescue teams have arrived. After foiling a hostile takeover by the undead you’ve earned a one-way ticket to a safer place. Now it’s time to make plans for the future: consider traveling to warmer climates or getting a new job. There’s good money in corpse disposal nowadays…The Zombie Tarot is perfect for the next time you’re with a group of friends, sitting around watching Night of the Living Dead and discussing who has the best plan for surviving the uprising. Don your scarves, bangles, baubles and crystal ball and get ready for a fun night of reading the cards. The cards will speak the truth as to who will survive and who will not.
