all this talk about feast/bowl/pod/fistful of frogs reminded me of something else that happened at bumbershoot. We were hanging out in the stadium, waiting for the next band, with the lovely space needle in view. Daniel was trying to teach me how to play Magic with a cardset he got free from the Wizards of the Coast booth. I was undecided on my next move. "Hit him with your globe of frogs," Lobsterman suggested.
It would be kind of blasphemous for someone else to draw a tarot-esque deck of cards of robyn characters, but perhaps one of you artistic types would like to try.
here are a few ideas. i still don't know how to play magic, so we'd need the help of someone who does (and you know who you are.)

Bayard suggested tarot-esque cards using robyn songs. Funnily enough, although I don't play any of the Magic style card games, I do use tarot cards. And I am in the process of designing two sets, one of which is a musical set of 78 songs each relating to one of the major or minor arcana. So... let's have a look at what Bayard suggested...
