The Sibyl's Leaves: Playing Cards for Divination, Fortune-Telling and Augury
Materials: paper, plastic, ink, gold foil
"THE SIBYL'S LEAVES; or, a Peep into Futurity!"
This 52-card deck of vintage gilded playing cards serves a dual purpose. Use it to read fortunes or as a luxury deck for normal card games! It includes the usual four suits along with traditional 19th-century 'old witch' or 'gypsy oracle' readings. With the included instruction leaflet, you can use it to read your stars, answer questions or simply play Go Fish. Please note that the decks do not contain jokers.
The cards feature full-colour, double-sided, radius corner designs with subtle metallic gold accents on coated 310gsm Sure Slip textured card. To people who aren't paper specialists, these simply look and feel like a professional deck! They're slidey enough to shuffle and deal easily but textured enough not to be slippy.
Each deck comes packaged in a deep red matt laminated 350gm Zanta games board tuck box, also featuring metallic gold detailing.

The cards arrived right on time, were perfectly and safely wrapped so they got to me in tip top condition. I am very happy with the service and loved the bold colours and the quality and texture and size of the cards made them a dream to shuffle. I put them to work straight away with a few of my regular clients and they proved very accurate and to the point. A very happy customer. Thank you very much and sending hugs and kisses to the cats.
I absolutely LOVE these. The cards are really nice high quality with that slightly cross-hatched matte surface (not too slippy nor too sticky) and the images & texts are gorgeous. It's still clear enough which card you have that you could use these as a substitute for a standard pack of cards in a card game. It comes with a lovely booklet which have suggested card divinations in it too, which I thought was very cool. Well done! Also you don't need to have played or enjoyed Cultist Simulator to 'get' these or find them enjoyable.
Lovely cards in a lovely case! Shipped securely and surprisingly quickly for having to jump the pond. Too bad there's no jokers, but there's still plenty of games to play without em, not to mention all fortunes to be told! Thanks!
Curious cards. I’ve only had them for one night and I’ve already dreamt of an age of deep seas and sunken marble cities. Today, things that ought not have a voice, whisper to me. 10/10 would recommend.
