    Historic Playing Cards

    Here's a great way to create even more authenticity at your events. If you are sitting around the fire at night, playing any of the myriad of drinking games that requires cards, why not get a set of historic playing cards?

    My personal favorite is the 15th Century Visconti Tarot, about four down on the page. I recall reading somewhere that all modern playing cards descended from the Tarot.

    Imagine playing poker and the death card shows up. Ouch.

    Want more cool Tarot images? Take a look at's Tarot Card Museum. Fantastic resource for some seriously period card portraits.
