This Cult of the Lamb Tarot Card Guide will tell you how to unlock all of the Tarot Cards and what we think are the best Tarot Cards in Cult of the Lamb!

What Are Cult of the Lamb Tarot Cards?

Tarot Cards are items in Cult of the Lamb that temporarily boost your power. Each Tarot Card confers a different benefit. The bonuses from Tarot Cards will disappear when you die or return to the Cult.

 

Visiting Clauneck within the dungeon will give you a choice between two random Tarot Cards. The selection is limited at first, but you can eventually unlock more as you play through the game.

What Are + Tarot Cards and ++ Tarot Cards?

Rarely, you may encounter + Tarot Cards and ++ Tarot Cards while playing the game.

+ Tarot Cards have a bonus that gives you a stronger effect than the standard card. The ++ Cards are even stronger than that, giving you a significant boost in power as seen in the examples above.
