The literal translation of "gong hee fot choy" is "greetings of riches." A Celestial Arts best-seller since 1982, the Gong Hee Fot Choy Book of Fortune was originally published in 1948 as a companion to the Gong Hee FotChoy Book of Dreams. Consisting of a fortune-telling game that uses a regular deck of playing cards, this revised edition includes a newly designed playing board.

Fortune will most certainly smile upon you if you read Gong Hee Fot Choy.
