The tarot is a pack of playing cards used from the mid-15th century in various parts of Europe. Tarto cards are parallel for divination in the form of tarotology and cartomancy and, later, specialist packs were developed for occult purposes.
Like common playing cards, the tarot has four suits. Each suit has 14 cards, ten pip cards numbering from one (or Ace) to ten and four face cards (King, Queen, Knight, and Jack/Knave). In addition, the tarot has a separate 21-card trump suit and a single card known as the Fool. Depending on the game, the Fool may act as the top trump or may be played to avoid following suit.
