Description
Foretell the future using a deck of regular playing cards and a divination game, which traces its origins to the principles of astrology and Chinese numerology.
The familiar "Gong hee fot choy " means "greetings of riches," and confirms the ancient belief that life's odds are three-to-one in favor of prosperity over poverty, success over failure, and good fortune over bad. It is also thought that the future can be forecast--and even influenced--if we know how to interpret the signs and understand their meanings. Each playing card and each house (illustrated on the game board) are identified with a particular outcome. For a glimpse of what the future holds, grab a deck of playing cards and this book. Have fun and may fortune smile upon you.
