Origins of Cartomancy (Playing Card Divination)
(Learn how and when to remove this template message)
Cartomancy using standard playing cards was the most popular form of providing fortune-telling card readings in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Thestandard 52-card deckis often augmented withjokersor even with the blank card found in many packaged decks. In France, the 32-cardis most typically used in cartomantic readings, although the 52 card deck can also be used. (A piquet deck can be a 52-card deck with all of the 2s through the 6s removed. This leaves all of the 7s through the 10s, theface cards, and theaces.)
