[A Ulysses tarot?]

Joyce's imagery is as rich and deep as the traditional tarot (hasn't anyone else explored this yet?) cf FWake

easier than boardgame?

the four suits: wands, pentacles, cups, swords
1-10, page, knight, queen, king

suppose the suits were given to Bloom, Stephen, Molly, and... Nora?

or 18 cards per suit, one for each episode, with the suits being categories from the schemata like literary style, setting, science, symbols...?
