Few cultural artifacts have been as distorted and misrepresentated as the Tarot. Tarot cards were first created for playing a card game and the fortune telling excercises evolved much later. There is no evidence that Tarot cards were created for any other purpose than for playing a card game. In France, Tarot is played as a classic card game where it has been called the Chess of card games. This is a demonstration of the modern French game using the Tarobot program.

In the French game it is common to use a modern looking deck with the suit signs of hearts, spades, diamonds, and clubs. The modern court cards are double figured and the trumps display scenes quite different from fortune telling decks.
