Taboo

3.8/5

Taboo: The Sixth Sense is a Tarot card reading simulation developed by Rare and published by Tradewest for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in 1989.

This video game gives users a tarot reading where the "dealer" automatically shuffles the cards. It is the only NES game to carry two warnings; that it is intended for players ages fourteen and older and the game is intended for entertainment purposes only. Taboo was marketed as a party game that multiple adults could enjoy simultaneously.

Upon loading, the game requires input of the player's name, birth date, and gender. The game then asks the user to input a question, and shuffles the cards. The game then generates a tarot reading via the Celtic cross layout. These cards can be normal, or reversed. Afterward, the player chooses the state that he/she is from and will be given lottery numbers accordingly. The game uses the whole tarot deck, which consists of the Minor Arcana and Major Arcana, a total of 78 cards.
