  1. What a wonderfull deck! I love him! It is very simple to use because there is no need to memorize all the cards.
    Have you any ideea where I can find online the imagines of all the cards in Nile fortune telling deck? I am interested to see all the fortune written on every card, every 4 meaning on each playing card. I want to write all these explanations on a simple deck and try to use that one (sssshhhttttt, this is our secret :) )
    Love, T

  2. Hello Madame Seaqueen
    I am very sad because I didn`t find all imagines of Nile Fortune Cards Deck :(
    I tried everywhere on the internet and no luck. Missing some cards, about half of them.
    You are the only person I know who owns this deck. I want to ask you to scan or photograph me these cards (or if it is possible to write the meaning on each card). I know I am a stranger to you, but please please please if you have some available time, can you do that for me? My email address is attached to this comment.
    The missing cards are:
    Hearts: 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10.
    Diamonds: ace, 2, 4, 8, 9
    Clubs: 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack
    Spades: 8
    If you think it is possible and my request is not excessive, please help me!
    Thanks in advance

  3. Thank you for your answer.
    I don`t want to buy this deck. I don`t have money to invest in old decks. I just want to do this deck myself at home, I want to write all these explanations on a simple deck and try to use it in this way. ( I know that is not really fair, but in this circumstances…..)
    I tried to find on the internet all the cards to copy the explanations, but I did`t find all the card. That`s the reason I ask you to scan me missing cards

  4. Oh My God, such a lovely surprise, Bobbi Jo Drake!!! I don`t have all the cards, nobody want to scan for me :( I don`t know why, because it is take 10 minute to do that :(
    I love this deck and I search online for few years. :(
    Please, I know that is passed more than 6 month since you offer, but just now I saw your comment.
    Thank you very much. You have a big heart!!! I am waiting your response.
