beetiger and I decided that we'd like a physical version of the Crowdsource Tarot, to use at our traditional Samhain divination sessions. So beetiger went and found a way to get card decks done print-on-demand, and put on her layoutcritter hat, and made something real and shuffleable that can be laid out on a table, thrown across the room, or whatever.
We just got the sample deck we made back and, well, it's kinda awesome. beetiger made it all beautiful with ripply colors and a nice clear presentation of the text -- upright meanings upright if the card is upright, reversed meanings upright if it's reversed. So we've decided to make this available to those of you who might enjoy it.
The 86 card deck has the descriptive texts, together with the upright and reversed meanings, on full color, laminated, poker-sized cards. The card colors correspond to the colors of the rainbow, which map to the chakras, which map to the extended version of the Maslow's Hierarchy, which map to the suits of the Crowdsource Tarot. The “Yes” card is the wonderful symmetrical design by chipuni, and the backs feature a detail from an abstract painting created by my grandmother.
