This wiki has been updated 13 times since it was first published in April of 2020. Although science cannot confirm whether fortune telling devices, like tarot card decks, magic 8 balls, and Ouija boards, really reveal glimpses of the future, down-to-earth researchers can easily comment on their superficial qualities. Comparing features such as illustration, card composition, and other considerations, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best for your convenience. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

1. The Rider-Waite

2. Mystic Mondays

3. Ethereal Visions

Editor's Notes

April 29, 2020:

Outside the realm of superstition, items such as tarot decks and Ouija boards pose no immediate physical threat to users. Just like astrology, it’s better to think of any form of fortune telling as a fun way to pass the time introspectively, and not as a reliable or realistic way to forecast the future. We in no way suggest you use tarot card readings to guide your decision making in the real world.

While there are many wonderful tarot decks out there, we sadly can’t include them all here. Other than The Rider-Waite, Kawaii Magic, and Miss Cleo Power, most of the options listed have boxes that are as much a part of the set as a good cover is on a hardbound book. Think of the other three as being included because they’re still wonderfully illustrated and printed despite the shortcomings of their containers. Just imagine how they’d do if they had a more substantial, gilded box like The Keegan Illuminated or Mystic Mondays, both of which would look great on a shelf mixed in with a nice book collection.
