Read Your 8-bit Future on 8-bit Tarot Cards

8_bit_tarot_cardsMost people will have at least heard of Tarot cards – when I had the time I learned to read them and actually gave readings to a load of friends.

I use a traditional Rider-Waite deck but the geek in me was drawn to this cool spin on the Tarot card.

This modern reworking is what happens when the ancient mysteries collide with classic Nintendo Entertainment System graphics.

The cards are actually based on the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck and each illustration was made with an 88×152 resolution “using only the colors in the default 9-bit Mac OS color palette.”

Never realised that there was a 9-bit version 😉

The set includes a 78-card deck in “an 8-bit cardboard keepsake box.” Available for $29.99 from ThinkGeek.
