Weekend Craziness – The Zombie Tarot

by Gwen

Zombie Tarot




Don’t know if you have heard the rumor that the Mayans are spreading around. You know, that the world is coming to an end and all that hogwash?

Seriously, who believes the Mayans? And while we are talking about the Mayans, have you ever played basketball with them? Talk about talking the game seriously.  That Mesoamerican Ball will teach you the real meaning of sacrifice.



When it comes to predicting the future, you need to go to more modern technology. No, not the talking toddler in the E*Trade commercials, I mean tarot cards. If you can’t trust the cards, you might want to just go ahead and throw in the towel with the Mayans.

Tarot cards have been around since the mid-fifteenth century, but they have never looked this good. Whoever came up with the idea of mixing fortune telling with the undead was a seriously confused individual, also a very talented one.

The cards are beautiful and completely creepy at the same time. The colors are softened like vintage ephemera and made from sturdy card stock that can standup to any brain spill you throw at it.


If the Tarot is new to you, don’t fret. Included is a wonderful tiny manual with all of the directions. In no time at all you’ll be predicting who Susie is going to lose her brain, I mean heart,  and just when you and that star-crossed Zombie are going to meet.



okay putting semi-serious hat on now.

I have ZERO experience with tarot cards, but I do love great vintage inspired graphics and some of my best friends are zombies.  (that last part may not be true) I whipped these puppies out and well, let’s just say that either I need glasses or the future looks murky.

No matter, these are going to be great additions to the next party and if you’re not careful there will be brains on the menu.
