About

I know you're thinking Tarot cards..these are different. This is a standard deck of 52 playing cards that can be used to tell fortunes or
to play any of the thousands of regular card games.

This truly is the ultimate deck of cards!

Inspired by the popular fortune telling decks from the early 1900's. The Caravan of SEE'ers Gray deck is ornate and elegant...created for Cartomancers, collectors and players alike. Printed by The United States Playing Card Co. (USPC)

The deck features custom court and pip cards with illustrations of figures acting out the meanings of each card. The illustrations in the reverse and upright positions are open for interpretation. An information card is provided with each deck with one word meanings for all 104 illustrations and a couple easy spreads you can use for fortune telling. (Most Tarot spreads work with the cards as well.)

Magicians and illusionists...this deck is also available stripped just for you!

Information chart with full meanings for every card in both the upright and reverse positions, 104 total. Includes information on the numbers 1-10, the court cards and suit characteristics as well. (Printed in black and white on standard paper.)

 (Click here for a high resolution image of the court cards.)

The poster features full meanings for each card in the upright and reverse positions, 104 total. Also, full color images of every card from the "cartomancer" gray deck as well as a brief explanation of the meanings of the numbers 1-10, the court cards and the suits for a more in depth reading. The back of the poster includes the extended fortune telling with DICE method.

Professionally printed on heavy cover stock paper for durability in 11"x17". This size is large enough to have all of the information needed and still be manageable for use. For extra manageability, it's scored and folded to a neat 8 ½"  x 11" size, making it easy to use, display and store.

Take it anywhere...

The Caravan of SEE'ers Fortune Telling dice come with a poker size card that slips neatly in your tuck box for storage. The card includes instructions for 2 different methods of fortune telling with dice and a game that is similar to "Drop Dead Dice" only twisted to the Caravan. A game of fate that will keep your little gypsies happy for hours!

Throw the bones, cast the stones, draw the lots.. Cleromancy...another ancient method of divination. Much like playing cards, dice and bones were very common for use of fortune telling throughout history. Even author, Herman Melville had a character in his famous novel "Moby-Dick" who cast the bones to see his fate!

(Choking Hazard: Not for children under 3)

The scarf is 22"x22" and available in Blue or Red. This is no ordinary scarf.....it is designed to be used with the extended method of fortune telling with DICE and the poster.

The scarf can also be worn, used as a cloth for protecting and laying out your cards and used to wrap your decks.

If you decide to wear the scarf it is designed for you to choose your suit with each corner featuring a different suit and it's Tarot sign.

(Available as an add-on only. - Will fit most adults)

If you've been known to pack around more than one deck of cards at any given time, this distressed genuine leather bag can handle it! The bag measures: 8 ½” L by 6” W with a leather drawstring closure. It's even big enough to carry most Tarot cards with room to spare. Smells SO good!

Double sided handmade wooden sign. You choose your two sides. Side (D.) features one word playing card for fortune telling meanings for both the upright and reverse positions (104 total)  --  Side (E.) is a pendulum board. It has the full alphabet block for a detailed pendulum session or a more simple "Yes", "No", "Maybe" and "Don't Know" for quick answers to everyday decisions. (A.) and (C.) together is a useful combination.

(Available as an add-on only.)

A little something for your wall... Jumbo Caravan of SEE'ers court cards! The cards are genuine over sized playing cards printed on Premium 310gsm Linen playing card paper. Includes a set of 3 cards...a King, Queen and Jack. You choose your suit. You can display the front or back of the cards. Flip the cards to the reverse position with the blue faces up and it changes the mood of the cards.

(Frames not included)

Caravan of SEE'ers wooden sign features the four playing card suits and four tarot suits within it's intricate design. Matches the entire "Caravan of See'ers" Fortune Telling set. Handcrafted on premium Baltic Birch plywood with a light protective finish. The total size is 10" W x7" H.

The back of the sign is SIGNED and NUMBERED. The first backer gets #1 and on from there in order. Exclusive to this KICKSTARTER Campaign.

This is Caravan of SEE'ers Talking Board #001...the first one!

The ForTheSeekers talking boards are already very difficult and time consuming to create at the standard 12" x 18"...this one goes beyond that to an astounding 15" x 23". Bigger boards are tricky to get right so I only make a couple a year at best. This one turned out magnificent!

The Caravan of SEE'ers Talking Board includes a matching planchette and directions. All three are signed and numbered individually. The directions include pendulum instructions, planchette instructions and how to care for your talking board.

You will have it by this Halloween! I will ship immediately after this campaign closes.

$7,500 --- Both Caravan of SEE'ers "novice" and "intuition" decks will be available to add on to your existing pledge at $12 per deck. They are non-branded quality decks with a linen finish and are produced by a smaller manufacturer. The decks come shrink warped with a hard plastic storage case.

The "novice" deck features 104 full meanings written directly on the cards. You will be a fortune teller the moment you open this deck! ~ The "intuition" deck is for the more experienced reader. This deck features one word meanings for both the upright and reverse positions...104 total. The red "intuition" deck is bold and exciting and the blue "novice" deck is subtle and elegant!

$10,500 --- The "novice" and "intuition" decks will be upgraded to have matching tuck boxes.

Risks and challenges

The cards are set up to print through The U.S. Playing Card Co. They ask to allow up to 2 months from the time of ordering for delivery...give or take. With that said, I've set the rewards delivery date to February to allow for any time issues but it will most likely be sooner. I will be sure to update often and will begin shipping as soon as possible.

I've based my pledge goal to fund all of the expenses of fees, printing, packaging and postage with a small amount reserved for any extra expenses that might occur.
