Tarot is an ancient trick-capturing card game from 14th Century Italy similar to games like Euchre and Spades. Tarot is still very popular as a card game in France, but over the last century or so it has achieved notoriety as an oracle for fortune telling. Some historians trace the roots of tarot cards back to ancient Egypt, while others believe it was introduced to Europe by gypsies from Asia. The most famous tarot deck was released in 1909. Known as the Rider Waite, this deck was created by Pamela Colman-Smith under the tutelage of the esteemed occultist A. E. Waite.
