Gnostica sounds like such a fun game, but there is no way I'm going to bring a tarot deck into a public school. I can only imagine the burning at the stake that would arise in this conservative community.
There was a discussion (not sure if it was this list or a different LL one) about this very topic and someone has made a perfectly clean tarotish deck. Different iconic symbols, completely different names, but functionally identical (for Gnostica). Let me just look through my archive... here it is, originally from Carol on the Edu list: ===== Matt Arnold has this page of games: http://www.nemorathwald.com/Games.htm ... and about halfwaydown is his link to his version of Gnostica - which he titles "Tarotories." I think if I were bringing the game into a school, I'd call it Gnostica - much easier to talk about Gnostics (from the Greek for "knowledge") than it would be to get past Tarot - tories.... but your mileage may vary. In any case, he's got a nicely put together set of cards you can print out. Be aware that he has added in two cards to make it an 80 card deck. This isn't what the original game calls for, so use those extra cards or not, as you wish - but just be aware they're there. ===== -- - |) () /\/ yeah Gmail!
