Kipper is a different type of cartomancy than Tarot. It originated in Germany as a card game in the 18th century and transformed into the 36 card Oracle deck for divination in the late 19th century. The name Kipper comes from the German fortune teller Susanne Kipper.
While Kipper is similar to the Lenormand system in its origins and number of cards, it’s different in that it offers more character cards. This creates a novelistic feeling with a touch of drama. Kipper is like Lenormand in that it works well for predictive readings, uses limited or fixed meanings per card and speaks in a more direct, blunt way. Cards are usually read in triplets or more.
