Zombie Tarot – It’s In Your Future

Zombie Tarot

I put tarot card divining right up there in the hallowed halls normally reserved for palm and tea leaf readers. And those mechanical fortune tellers? Mechanized gods on Earth. In fact, everyone who works at carnivals should be given Mt. Olympus status.

Yeah, right.

Whether or not your balls are made of crystal, what if a deck of cards was able to help you traverse the zombie-filled apocalypse? You wouldn’t think forecasting the future by means of a magical poker cards would be a load of dark laundry then, would you, you stinkin’ disbeliever? With the release of Zombie Tarot, your flesh-eaten future is no longer unforeseen.

Spilled toxic sludge was ground zero for the zombie outbreak. That much is a given. With the beautifully illustrated Zombie Tarot cards (releasing June 5, 2012), you’ll be able to refer to the hand that is dealt in order to survive. The ZT can advise you either stay in your barricaded fallout shelter or head for the government sponsored refugee camps. (Heads up: best not to put your faith in government sponsored anything. For one thing, they’ll figure out a way to tax you.)

Zombie Tarot, selling for a mere $16.95, comes in a cool box, complete with 78 illustrated cards, a 96-page full-color instruction booklet to help you interpret your readings, and of course, much needed advice for the zombie uprising, including always keeping the shotgun loaded. (Pffft – like a divine force needs to tell me that.)

From the press release: “In this zombified parallel universe, wands become limbs, pentacles are biohazard symbols, and the Major Arcana is full of shambling corpses. Along with the 78-card deck, readers will receive instructions in a 96-page full-color book; its contents explain how to survive the zombie apocalypse and forecast your future using one of three different card layouts.”

Zombie Tarot was illustrated by Paul Kepple, who teamed up with Stacey Graham, a Washington D.C. based writer and professional tarot card reader. Says Stacey of her gift, “My philosophy about tarot is that it gives you a picture of the path you’re traveling, but at any time you can take a left at the donut shop or stop and sit in a tree or turn around for a do-over. You control your destiny – the cards are just there to show you what’s coming up if you follow that straight path and sometimes what’s around the bend.”

Or I could just stop at the donut shop as I truly believe there is a maple bar in my immediate future. Until then, I’ll just rely on the tried and true divination of coin tossing. Everyone else, click HERE to order a set of Zombie Tarot.

    I was googling for this one and found another zombie tarot called The Zombie Apocalypse Tarot. It looks like it’s been out for a few months now. They both look so cool, I’m going to have to get them both.
