Reviews

So in your a few spare minutes when you aren't out scavenging, looting, or reloading your guns, you grab a bunch of pencils and card 'liberated' from an abandoned school and draw yourself a deck of tarot cards. Your art style is a little rough-hewn, a bit chainsaw art, but your nouvelle redneck compatriots will love your depiction of their crumbling world – Harleys and handguns – this is how you roll.

This is a 78 card tarot – with 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana. In the Major Arcana no Trumps have been renamed, and there are no significant departures from the Rider Waite Smith standard. In the Minor Arcana, Coins have been recast as cans of food, Cups are now water canteens both big and small, Swords have become crossbows, and Wands are now guns – Glocks, pump-action shotguns, Kalashnikovs, M-16's, shotguns, even good ol’ fashioned revolvers.

The court cards remain standard – Kings, Queens, Knights, Pages. All cards have both numbers and titles beneath the illustration, in addition the Minor Arcana have a letter and/or number (for the card game) written on a scrap of masking tape in the top left-hand corner.

The cards measure 72 x 120 mm. The card stock is fairly high quality, solid and inflexible, with a smooth low sheen finish. The deck sits nicely in the hands and shuffles smoothly. The print is crisp and clean, sharp lines, clear colours, no blurring or bleeding of the images. The palette is somewhat military in nature – lots of browns, khaki, olive drab, grey, with occasional splashes of red, orange, pale blue, and grass green. The artists style is blocky and choppy – a studied amateurishness. The borders for the cards are not clearly defined, rather each image peters out into a stucco coloured edge. The print on the back – a drawing of wooden planks – is in fact asymmetrical, but not so obvious that it would be distracting if one were to use reversed cards. The packaging is a stiff-cardboard box, with a smooth satiny finish. It is printed with images from the Omegaland Tarot, and information about the deck.

The Little White Book is 52 pages long, with instructions in English only. Using faux-typewriter print, information is given in the first person by your guide through Omegaland. This is an anonymous, masculine voice, full of gruff smarts and survivalist wisdom, that tells it like it is. The divinatory meanings are quite standard, but refreshingly shorn of all esoteric jargon. Each card has a little bit of narrative that explains what is happening in the image, seamlessly melded with interpretations. This is followed by one, or more, keywords which summarise the essence of the card. This is a really good information, bluntly put, with no ambiguities. There are no interpretations for reversed cards given. There is a 'Survival Spread' included – a 6-card draw with Location, Food, Weapons, Fuel, Drink, and Stockpile to help the Seeker divine their future. Instructions for the games are provided on a further 12 pages of the LWB and 6 additional cards. There are separate rules for 3 players, for 4-6 players, and free-for-all games.

This is a truly unusual tarot deck – one of several more masculine decks to appear on the market lately. While much of its symbolism departs radically from more standard images it is still a functional deck. I would not recommend it for beginners, however if you are an experienced tarot reader with an interest in post-apocalyptic landscapes then this may well be the deck for you.
