Hello all: I am building a poker-sized Tarot deck for a specific project but am also wondering who might be interested in them for their own effects. They use the standard Rider-Wait faces.

Forgot to mention that as well as the standard 78 cards, these decks will have a double backer, blank face and an extra magician card.

Ugh. I fear this will just encourage card tricks.

To play devils advocate, I certainly hope so! Smile

There's no need to wait for poker-sized cards to perform Tarot Card Tricks - been there; done that: https://www.magicnook.com/tarot-tricks/TarotTricksTOC.htm Having Tarot cards in poker size will just make more card tricks available.

I have no idea if this new deck will make some tricks easier; as I stated in my original post, I am having them made for a specific project and that has noting to do with other card tricks. That said, judging by the absolute FLOOD of positive responses I have had from performers on social media, for what ever reason, people really like the idea of a poker-sized Tarot.

I can see where the size would be convenient, not only for performance of effects but also to fit in the pocket. Will they be aged to look old or not?

Too bad it couldn't have been four people of your choice.

I have a bridge sized deck of Rider Waites and Thoth come commonly in bridge sized. I use them a lot as found the portable size useful.

I have a deck of those as well. I like them but think the bridge size will add just a little more substance to holding managing it.

I, for one, welcome this development.

I think it sounds great.

If there would be 12 zodiac cards and the four elements I will certainly buy a couple.

When might this be available?

Nice work

Dead on Paper did a pretty nice looking set of poker sized playing cards for a pretty decent price.
