All in all, it's really nice stuff. Very high quality material. It almost makes me want to learn how to read tarot cards.

    Heh, I can never open a deck of card without bending the top. Ever.
    *lol* Sounds familiar. And if I manage to do it the first time, I mess up the second time I open it. :D
  • Thanks for the pictures, the cards look really nice.

    But why is there an ESRB rating on the box?
  • Huh... the betrayal card is missing the knife in his back.

    I was wondering the same thing.
  • Oh wow, these are really cool.

    So Voodoo Cards: ready for shipping
    Art Portfolio: ready for shipping
    Tomi deluxe edition: ready for shipping

    Lets hope it doesn't take too long for the stuff to get here now!!
  • So the special card is indeed The Fool (or an equivalent name). That makes sense.

    Let's see, direct Tarot equivalents...as I mentioned elsewhere, The Tower, The Lovers, Strength, Justice, and Death are direct equivalents. Now that I know LeChuck on his throne is The Devil, that's another direct counterpart. The Shivress could quite easily correspond to The High Priestess/Popess (the imagery doesn't seem to match with The Empress and there's no male counterpart to serve as The Emperor). Thematically, The Journey can stand in for The Chariot, The Guide could stand in for The Magician/Juggler, and Betrayal, Treachery, or The Victim could stand in for The Hanged Man/Traitor. Add those ten equivalents to The Fool (which if it is indeed called that is another direct equivalent) and my thinking that half of the voodoo deck could be tied to the Major Arcana with relative ease was dead on.

    Huh? What? Where? What are you talking about? My order has the deluxe edition in it and it still says that annoying "backordered" thing...
  • They look great! I'm a little disappointed they didn't include the Scientist card though. That one was my favorite.
  • Damn, I didn't really want these until seeing them...

    Wow. That case would've made a way better slip cover for the Deluxe DVD with the Purcell artwork being the main artwork in the actual case.

    Oh yes, the cards are nice too! :)
