From Tarotpedia "Tarot" refers to a family of games played with an augmented deck, (that is, decks with a fifth "suit" serving as permanent trumps), and also to the decks themselves. Most other card games using trumps select one of four regular suits to serve as trumps for a particular hand. Tarot is commonly played in various areas of Europe, and has been played in Italy since the 1440s. Outside Europe, there has been a revival of interest in Tarot card games especially amongst participants in Medieval and Renaissance re-enactments.
What do people today need to know about tarot cards? The early history of tarot cards reveals little of the forces that shaped their design or inspired their meaning. But since they were born in Italy during the Renaissance, an era of cultural rebirth, there are many potential sources that may have spawned this curious game of cards: cabalism, classicism, neoplatonism, hermeticism, Islamic mysticism, and even the Christian reformation may have had a bearing on the evolution of the tarot cards.
