Also known as Abracadabra: Le Streghe Giocano a Carte
The Abracadabra: Le Streghe Giocano a Carte is a deck illustrated with witchy gnomes at play - gnomes with red noses and apparent alcoholic tendencies. It's a comical deck of 22 cards from Italian publishers, Hermatena.

Abracadabra Tarot review by Nisaba Merrieweather
Two years ago I received my copy of the Streghe deck, and promptly showed it to a young Italian girl I was seeing at the time. I had told her it was called the "Streghe" (and she corrected my pronunciation, now I can say it like a native!), but she was horrified that anyone would call a Tarot deck that. She explained the constellation of rather unflattering meanings that the word had. On finally seeing it, her whole demeanour changed. She loved it - and she loved the name for it.
Amongst other things "Streghe", apparently, means Witch. It means nagging wife. It means bitch. It means slut. It means old harridan. It means female thief. Most of the insults you can throw at a woman can be translated by this one word, apparently.
