The Pack of Packs!
Canine Cards for Play, Tarot Readings & Magic Tricks
This project seems to have grown legs… four of them! This Poker Deck features Ancient Dog Deities, including Egyptian Anubis, Aztec Xolotl, Greek Hecate, and Sumerian Bau! This Pack of Packs (!) can be used as a regular deck of cards… but it is also designed for those who like to do Tarot style readings and magicians who can use it for magic effects (with numerous built-in reveals and other goodies). A book explaining the concepts behind the project, the reading system for use as a Tarot deck, and the card magic secrets with some magic routines will be included! As usual, the project will be used to make a quality product and used to raise awareness for mental health, and support mental health organizations.
The Deck can be used as:
o A Collectable
o A Deck of Cards for Playing Card Games
o For doing Tarot Readings
o For Card Magic
o All the Above
The Deck currently is planned to be:
o 55 Card Deck, Magician Handling Quality, Poker Sized
o 4 suits of 13 cards each and 2 Jokers
o Tuck Box
o One DB
I have worked in mental health and wellness aspects for this project. E.g.., the 4 suits/deities also will represent healthy human activities to pursue, including PLAY, BALANCE, IMAGINATION, and MINDFULNESS, and other things.
This is very dog tribute heavy as well as works with mythology, elements, yin yang, and other symbols.
The main doggos include:
o Vedic/Syama and Sabala
– AZTEC SKULLS / XOLOTL
– EGYPTIAN HEARTS / ANUBIS
– GREEK WHEELS / HECATE
– SUMERIAN STARS / BAU
– The Jack, Queen and King display each dog deity as a puppy, adolescent, and adult
– The Jokers are the Vedic death dogs, Syama the Black and Sabala the Spotted

Would you believe a sound track is in development???
It currently includes music representing Aztec, Egyptian, Greek, Sumerian and Vedic mythology, as well as a few mashups of them all for a pan-pantheon of doggish delights!
