The Public Tarot: Generative Fortunes

Screen Shot 2018-02-13 at 12.37.50 AM.png

A generative tarot reader by Marilyn Roxie. The Public Tarot was made with open-source, interactive fiction software Twine. Purple text indicates word associations with the 78 Rider-Waite tarot images given by 31 survey respondents who ranged in familiarity or lack thereof with the tarot. These responses were then remixed with text from A.E. Waite's The Pictorial Key to the Tarot (1911), which is now in the public domain.

The tarot card images are of the 1909 Rider-Waite deck illustrated by Pamela Coleman Smith, originally scanned by Holly Voley and sourced from the Internet Sacred Text Archive. These images are in the public domain and have been passed through a 16-bit color filter.

Special thanks to survey-takers, troubleshooters, and play-testers:

Card Game

like pac guy this was going to be part of a minigame arcade thing in a bigger game I was making, but I gave up on it for now. this is like crazy eights if you ever played it but instead of 8 the wild card is 2. also the suits and numbers are a bit different (the numbers are ancient somali runes foiund in caves), it says the numbers underneath so you know. the hat joker guy (there is no joker card) will say random quips so to keep you engaged. this was made in game maker 8

Unpoker

An attempt to remove the randomness from poker. @mcclure111 gets some of the idea credit.

This is the game, right here:
Each player has one standard deck of playing cards. For each hand, every player secretly draws a five-card hand from their own deck. Three rounds of betting occur, with each player progressively revealing one card of their choice between rounds. After the final round, all unfolded players reveal their remaining two cards and the hand is resolved. Hands are discarded after use, without revealing any still-hidden cards. Memory aids for played cards are allowed, and should be included in computerized implementations. All other rules are the same as standard poker.

Instructions: I don't even know. After I printed out the cards, the game I had in mind failed abysmally. Let me know if you figure something out.
