Parletts Historic Games


I was following up my curiosity why my favored cartomancy decks or even older tarotsbased on Euchre, Piquet and Patience suggested pairings like poker games for divination seemed to be good fortune...in terms of card playing and divination, the suggested links with French, English, German and Russian decks and the game of Patience in the 19th century are noted:

Hopefully I typed this correctly from my old phone viewer and keypad. I plan to open a thread on cartomancy and Book of Destiny and Jeu du Destin decks, perhaps in oracles (?)which use an oldish and simpler form of cartomancy, similar to the time of Le Petit Etteilla and Lenormand. It interests me when the historicalplay of a game and cartomancy divination cross paths in the 19th century.
