Tarot cards were originally used in games and are still used for this purpose in many parts of Europe. The modern fortune teller tarot deck consists of 78 cards, divided into two main groups known as the Major Arcana (22 cards) and the Minor Arcana (56 cards), which include, among others, the Squire of Swords.
