Demonologist Tarot Cards, Explained

Don't be scared...

Demonologist is a horror co-op game for fans of jump scares and all things that go bump in the night. One to four players play co-operatively to find, identify, and finally exorcise a series of evil spirits in dark, cursed places. Along the way, you’ll be exploring locations looking for items, and using them to help you solve each mystery. But you may also find sets of cards on tables. If you want to know what to do with them if you do, read on for all of the Demonologist Tarot Cards explained.

What tarot cards do in Demonologist

Much as in Phasmophobia, tarot cards are going to trigger a random effect when you turn one over. At the time of writing, there are 10 different card types you can experience, with more than half of them triggering negative effects. But some of the positive effects may well make it worth you taking the risk of flipping the next card. The effect will often affect the individual player that uses the card.
