    Gamer friendly? Sorry, I don’t think so. It is no more gamer friendly than any other deck based on the Rider Waite design. Go to Wikipedia and search “Tarot Nouveau” for a real gamer friendly tarot deck which means you can play real card games with it. Also game playing is the original purpose of tarot cards and people today in European countries play tarot card games. The cards first appeared in the 1400s but before the 18th century people played games with them and did not use them for cartomancy. Think Geek should mention this fact on their website instead of misleading people to believe they have always been used for cartomancy.
