    Tarot

    This deck is awesome, it was my first deck, and though the "interpretations" for the cards in the book are based more for a highschooler or younger, it can still work for an "older" crowd. The deck is beautifully decorated, and easy to use. The convinence of a box makes them easy for travel! I give readings with this deck still, it is honestly the one I am most comfortable with... but it was my first, you tend to be more attached to your first deck i think! LOL

    Disappointed in General

    I'm a professional tarot reader and I ordered these cards because I really liked the images and thought they'd be perfect for teenagers at parties.<BR/>I was very disappointed to see the size of the cards. The images on the cards aren't nearly as clear, vivid or large as on the internet. The images are too small to be inspiring and are not easy to read.<BR/>When I used the deck with teens they weren't particularly excited by the cards. <BR/>I suppose they would be fine for teens to use with each other and at home.
