Konxari (pronounced kon-zar-ee) is a deck of 88 cards used as a supplement to communicate with those who have passed on, yet seem to walk among us. The set is perfect for ghost hunting, séances, or any kind of spirit communication you desire.
For centuries, the gifted have used methods such as Tarot Cards to predict the future, or Ouija Boards to contact the deceased. Now, an incredible long-lost practice from the ancients has been resurrected into modern-style playing cards, enabling you to interact with spirits in a way you’ve never experienced before.
While the use of Konxari Cards could never harm you, the supernatural should never be taken lightly. Be respectful of the practice and the souls you encounter may be more beneficial than you realize.

The Konxari process has been practised in one form or another since the Ancient Egyptian era. Cartomancy, which is divination or fortune-telling through the use of cards, is said to have been created by the Egyptian god Thoth. Tarot, Oracle, and Konxari are several forms of cartomancy and heka (magic) that originated from these times.
The word Konxari derives from the Egyptian word konxar, which means to speak with the dead. The Egyptians were known for their precise rituals respecting the deceased, with elaborate practices like mummification and celebrating the afterlife. Such ceremonies were said to rejuvenate the living Ka, allowing the body to act as it did in life as we know it. One such process used by the Egyptians to seek guidance or communicate with the deceased was through the Konxari.
The first known version of the Konxari were glyphs etched in 88 stone tablets called stela. (Strangely, a similar set of stone tablets had been discovered at Chich’en Itza, where Mayans would contact the dead in a similar fashion.) Through the years in Europe, however, the Konxari practice became relatively obscure with only pagans and gypsies holding its secrets for many generations.
In Germanic lands during the 1400’s, the Konxari was revived as an 88 card set called Offenkundige Karten, which means ‘conjure cards.’ Tarot Cards became more popular during these times, though tarot went through many changes, originating with a 52 card deck, looking similar to standard playing cards you see today. Ultimately, like Tarot, Konxari Cards were viewed as embracing demonic forces and banned throughout most of Christian Europe.
Today, the true Konxari has been resurrected, and you hold in your hands the opportunity to communicate with the other side. While the supernatural should never be taken lightly, you can be rest assured that this practice is not designed to bring evil into the world of the living. This is a chance to see the light of the unknown, to open your mind to a bigger picture, and to gain knowledge from another world.
There are spirits that exist within our own realm; this is your chance to communicate with them. Perhaps you can help them… or perhaps they can help you.
The cards are only a tool to communicate and understand. From there, what you do to make their world a more restful place, or your own for that matter, is up to you.
