This happens to be one of the most light hearted Tarot sets to join the genre. For a deck of the sacred Tarot to be based on a movie it would behoove it to be a special movie. The Disney and Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas is a cult classic and one with such an eclectic zeal that basing a Rider Waite Smith formatted deck on it actually makes sense. The standard seventy eight card deck is an RWS but it take on the traditional archetypes and iconography of the system and incorporates the characters and themes from the award winning film. The deck was designed and authored by Minerva Siegel, and illustrated by Abigail Larson.
Printed on crisp card stock with gloss finish the deck is adorned in art and imagery drawn directly from the movie. The major shift is in the name of suits, instead of Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles, the Nightmare Before Christmas Tarot uses Needles, Candles, Potions, and Presents. The pips are rather plain but maintain the light hearted fun of the deck and work well. The deck being based on the RWS is easy to read right out of the box for anyone with a basic familiarity with the Tarot.
It is a very charming deck and anyone who is a fan of the sacred Tarot or the Nightmare Before Christmas movie will enjoy this deck. In fact it ranks very high as one of the best gift Tarots for that special time of year or for the movie buff friend or family member.
