Here’s a deck on fire! The Bonefire Tarot is a spicy post-modern conflagration! Glowing with vivid colors, blazing with witty pop culture references, burning with mystic symbols pillaged from world cultures, Bonefire shines with a profoundly 21st century light.

Here, each Wand has become a Thyrsus, a pine cone wand carried by the Maenads and Satyrs of Dionysus symbolizing prosperity and pleasure. Pentacles have become Coins. The deck’s scenes and symbols are easy to read for those familiar with the Rider Waite Smith Tarot. For people new to Tarot, Bonefire may be easier to read than a traditional deck, with its current-day visual metaphors. Bonefire’s art recalls the classic era of tattoos. Relying on the artistic strength of the images, the Bonefire Tarot comes with very succinct written material designed to spark the reader’s intuition.

The Boldest Modern Tarot

The app itself is the usual standard of excellence from the Fool’s Dog; what’s special about this one is the deck. Bonefire Tarot is one of the most daring and exciting decks to come along in recent years. It was voted one of the best decks of the year at Aeclectic Tarot, Far from being just an art deck like some even within the Fool’s Dog catalogue— pretty pictures with little or no connection to meaning — Gabrielle Angus-West has gone the extra mile to do her research and create a deck that is rich in symbolism and practical for readers. It is a beautiful, bold deck, and it pains me to see it sitting dead last among the Fool’s Dog apps. Buy the physical deck or buy the app, or both — but buy it!!!

Inspiring & Gorgeous Deck

I own many tarot apps, and this is one of my favorites. The illustrations are beautiful, full of detailed, symbolic artwork and vibrant colors. The card descriptions are succinct and well written. I love everything about the Fool's Dog tarot app template, and I use the "Today's Card" feature as a daily journal prompt.

Not loving it

As always, Fool's Dog's app is well designed with nice features. The art in the is interesting to explore. The guide book deserves a 1 and is not quality of information I have become accustomed in their other deck apps. It has the most basic of meanings, but no information about the symbols used on the cards. For example why pine ones for wands? Also there were no custom spreads for this deck as others have. I feel that I am being very generous with my rating. Given the lack of information for this deck and a horribly written book/meanings for the cards, it is not up to my standards or other decks I have bought from this company. Disappointing.
