The game of Tarot, also jeu de tarot, is a trick-taking strategy tarot card game played by three to five players using a traditional 78-card tarot deck. The game is the second most popular card game in France.
In English, the game is referred to as French Tarot. This is to differentiate the card game from other uses of the tarot deck that are more familiar in the Americas and English-speaking countries, particularly the decks used for cartomancy and other divinatory purposes, and also to distinguish it from other card games played with a tarot deck. The unique feature that distinguishes French Tarot from other forms of tarot games is the over-trumping rule.
We organise a French Tarot sessions to play in a friendly atmosphere and chat in French (or franglais!) every third Wednesday of the month, from 2.30 to 5pm, in St Ives.
Beginners are welcome.
Join us for a fun afternoon!
