Twentieth Century Fox Licensing and Merchandising and Dark Horse Comics present two magical products that are sure to provide hours of sleepless slumber parties this fall. Joss Whedon's mythology comes alive with the official BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER Tarot Deck and the BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER "Conversations with Dead People" Board.
Named for an award-winning episode from Season Seven of the BtVS television series -- and written by BUFFY Season Eight: WOLVES AT THE GATE author Drew Goddard -- the BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER "Conversations with Dead People" Board is a great game for fans, in this world and the next, to communicate with each other about life, death, and other mysteries.
In the tradition of the Sunnydale Hellmouth, through which countless entities gained entry, fearless souls can let voices from the other side guide the planchette along the board to spell out the answers to their queries. Folks can channel their inner Willow and hone their witchy skills, providing hours of fun for the whole seance. Accompanying the game board and planchette, the BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER "Conversations with Dead People" Board includes an exclusive, comic-style instruction book featuring sequential art by BUFFY Season Eight guest illustrator Paul Lee.
The BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER Tarot Deck was written and conceived by renowned tarot writer Rachel Pollack, author of 12 books on the tarot, including the renowned 78 Degrees of Wisdom. She teams with long-time BUFFY artist Paul Lee to create this fully painted 78-card deck, drawing on characters, themes, and legends from all eight seasons of Whedon's masterpiece. This special deck was created by Pollack not merely as a collector's item, but as an actual, working tarot deck: the cards come with a book explaining their divinatory meanings and use. The traditional symbols of the tarot are reinterpreted through the vision of Whedon's BUFFY universe.
The BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER "Conversations with Dead People" Board and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER Tarot Deck will both be available in September 2008 and retail at $14.99 to $29.99.
