The online playing cards store of R. Somerville (Playing Cards)

What currency do you use for the prices on this site?

At the present time, all items shown on this website are priced in

British pounds sterling ()


If you are ordering from a country which does not use British pounds sterling, what you will be charged depends on the conversion rate which is in force on the day the transaction is processed by your credit card company or we give you a quote for payment by cheque in Euros.

We have included links to the Yahoo currency converter in various places on the site.

The Yahoo Currency converter is a very helpful tool which allows you to check what your order will cost at today's exchange rate. (This may fluctuate and may not be exactly the same on the day your order is processed, but it will give a reasonably close indication of how much your order will cost.)
You can also find this link (Click here for exchange rates) on the payment page in the checkout process or on our 'Useful links' page.

We are a small organisation and the cost implications of building a site which includes currency conversion to all major world currencies and updating these conversions daily is really a bit too much for us to contemplate at the moment!

Do I have to pay by credit card?

..... that the game of Tarot dates back to the 1400's. Twelve different versions of the game are known, although the Florentine game of Minchiate more or less died out in the 1930's and the game as played in Sicily (Tarocco Siciliano) is in danger of going the same way.

..... that Tarot for fortune-telling dates only from the late 1700's. The first Tarot cards for fortune-telling for use in English-speaking countries were devised by A.E. Waite and issued in 1911. Before that, Tarot cards usually had titles in French or Italian.
