  1. I have twenty of them – they’re referred to as packs and not decks – but that’s not a big deal. I use them now and then for entertaining guests and friends – they cannot be used to accurately and precisely predict the future, but it’s fun to do readings. Mine follow several different traditions, including Native American – but again, nobody should bet the rent on the predictions that Tarot readers give. Or on the I Ching, for another.

  2. Actually, I work with Wicca cards, they are called the Well Worn Path. I think they are more accurate, and a lot easier to learn than the major and minor arcaina in Tarot.

  3. Three – Rider/Waite – Arthurian Tarot – Mage the Ascension
    All were purchased by me..
    All three are based off of the Rider/Waite deck, but the Arthurian has a bit of Celtic undertones to it, and the Mage the Ascension deck is from the White Wolf games, Mage the Ascension.

  4. Haven’t seriously read for several years, but I have a Rider-Waite deck and a novelty Peanuts mini-tarot (contains only the major arcana), but when I read, I use the Mythic Tarot…especially like the illustrations.
    Bought them all myself, so can’t say about that question

  5. I have two: the Crystal Tarot and the Mythic Tarot. I use the Crystal Tarot primarily because I have small hands and the cards are a bit smaller and easier for me to handle. I chose the Crystal Tarot because of the jewel tone colors and the sort of cubist design. I bought the Mythic Tarot because I love the interepretations in the companion book, but I don’t use it much due to its size. I bought both myself. I yearn to have the Lovecraft Tarot, but unfortunately it’s a bit out of my price range.

  6. Well, for starters, I call them Decks and not packs, if you go to a website that sells tarot, they also call them decks.
    Do you own or use more than one deck?
    Yes I use several quite regularly for reading, some are just part of a collection.
    What types?
    Type? there is Tarot and then there are Oracles, I have both.
    In tarot, decks are created in three varieties;
    RWS – Thoth – Marseilles
    Most of my decks are of the RWS variety, a very few are styled after Thoth, and I have one Marseilles.
    Of the oracles, I have probably over 10 (have not counted them)
    Was it given to you or did you purchase it?
    I have bought decks, been given decks and have traded decks.
    Do you find that the deck given to you is more accurate?
    Accuracy is not found with the deck itself, it is the connection to the deck. Sometimes I will get (in any of the three ways of acquisition mentioned above) a deck that I think I will like, use it a few times and know if I really like it or not. Some decks don’t seem to read well for me and it has nothing to do with where it came from.
    Do your decks follow any type of traditions or religious belief?
    Some of my decks do. My cultural and mythological decks are:
    Legends, Ancestral Path, Native American, Egipcios Kier, and others.
