A typical tarot deck has a total of 78 cards inside, with the cards split into two groups. These groups are known as Major Arcana and Minor Arcana, with Major Arcana cards considered trump cards and Minor Arcana cards representing suit cards. Tarot cards were originally used as playing cards for games in several parts of Europe.
For example, the people of Italy, France, and Austria used tarot cards to play tarocchini, taro, and Konigrufen. Some of these games are even played to this day. However, in the late 18th century a new use for tarot cards came about as the symbols on the cards became used for divination.
