The game itself is said to be as old as Dioscoria itself and its rules have seen many evolutions since. Like many popular games, house rules are widespread and encouraged.
The typical Dioscorian is rather communal and likes to play with others, something Sefirot facilitates with multiple two-player rule sets. But Sefirot is also often enjoyed alone and there is a simple explanation for this. Sefirot is more than a simple game. It holds great potential for divination.
To play, you need a dedicated board, of which there are two variants. One for a single person and one for double divination. Be it a specially prepared table, a finely crafted wooden board or one of the many custom cloth maps sold in the bazaars of Dioscoria, the choice is yours. Additionally you will also be using a full tarot deck.
In both versions a player takes three cards in their hand initially and starts taking a card per turn from the shuffled talon. Major arcana have to be laid on segment of the board, minor arcana on a separate section in a grid. Once cards on this grid add up to 10, 20 or 30 in column or row, they must be transferred to the area of the major arcana to match their numerical values. When a major arcanum is equally matched, it counts as fulfilled.
