Description of Tarot Cards – Phasmophobia

Tarot cards are a cursed item that can draw itself on the map during an assignment. Its chance of appearing is 1 in 6, or about 16-17%. This item appeared in the game with the December Phasmophobia update. Finding the item can be a bit of a challenge, as the deck of cards itself in Phasmophobia is quite small and does not stand out from other items. Most often, however, tarot cards can be found on tables, kitchen countertops, and cabinets.

Each deck found contains 10 random tarot cards from the 10 available in the game. Some of the cards in the deck are usually repeated, and the random selection means that you never know if a card will help the game or make it more difficult. Each card in Phasmophobia has a unique effect on the player or the spirit, and when used, burns and disappears in a colorful flame. Drawing a tarot card is only possible inside a building – only then do the cards have a chance to work.

Additional information about tarot cards at Phasmophobia

Before using tarot cards in Phasmophobia, it’s a good idea to take a picture of them, because after the tenth card is used, the entire deck disappears and only one deck of cards appears during the assignment. It is also important not to reveal any more cards during the hunt/attack, as they will all turn into “The Fool” with no effect.

I'm a fan of many games from very different genres - from simulations to platformers to shooters. I've definitely spent the most time in sims creating generation after generation (especially in The Sims 2) and in Minecraft building lots of buildings and exploring the world.
