    I have decided not to allow websites other than Gamefaqs (www.gamefaqs.com),
    IGN (faqs.ign.com) & Gamespot (www.gamespot.com) to host my FAQs from now on.
    Please don't ask, because I will not grant permission.  It's just that too many
    sites don't keep their version of my FAQ up to date which makes for a lot of
    hassle in my mailbox.
    So if anyone sees this FAQ on any site other than those mentioned above, please
    let me know and I will take care of the situation, thanks.
    
    Just to make things crystal clear for some people, this FAQ is not to appear
    anywhere at the following URLs:

    The controls for this game are very simple, and are as follows:
    
    
    D-Pad - Moves the cursor when typing.
    
    A - Type letters.
    B - Erases letters.
    
    Start - Starts the game.
    Select - Starts the game.

    This isn't really a game at all, think of it as a very cryptic magic 8-ball on
    a nintendo cartridge.
    
    After starting the game you will see the following message:
    
    "All that has been
    And all that will be
    Is here for you to know
    Dare you glimpse the future
    Dare you even ask..?
    
    Taboo
    The time machine on Nintendo!"
    
    Yeah I know, you could get a similar effect by reading the manual for a Oija
    board, but this is pretty hilarious too.
    
    You are then asked to enter your name, birthdate and sex.  Once you've done
    this you can type in your question and pity anyone who paid money for this
    game.
    
    Now some cards are shuffled and you are told which card is yours before 10
    cards are laid out on the screen like so:
                            __
           __              |  |
          |  |             |10|
          |03|             |__|
          |__|              __
                           |  |
     __    __         __   |09|
    |  |  |  |  __   |  |  |__|
    |06|  |01| |  |  |05|   __
    |__|  |__| |02|  |__|  |  |
               |__|        |08|
           __              |__|
          |  |              __
          |04|             |  |
          |__|             |07|
                           |__|
    
    Each card has a special title according to it's position above and these titles
    are listed below.
    
    01 - Significator
    02 - Crossing Card
    03 - Crowning Card
    04 - Base Of The Matter
    05 - Past Influences
    06 - Forthcoming Influences
    07 - Where One Finds Oneself
    08 - Views Of Others
    09 - Hopes And Fears
    10 - Final Outcome
    
    You are then shown each card in the order depicted above and told its meaning.
    However the descriptions are so longwinded and complicated (since they're full
    of broken english) that by the time you have read all 10, you'll likely have
    forgotten your original question and be wondering why you're still "playing"
    this "game".
    
    There are 78 possible cards in the game, 56 of which are numbered and 22 which
    are not.
    
    Of the numbered cards they go from ace to king like a normal deck of cards, but
    instead of a jack there are two cards, the knight and page.  These 14 cards are
    in 4 suits, coins, cups, staffs and swords.
    
    The 22 non-numbered cards are as follows:
    
    Death
    Judgement
    Justice
    Strength
    Temperance
    The Chariot
    The Devil
    The Emperor
    The Empress
    The Falling Tower
    The Fool
    The Hanged Man
    The Hermit
    The High Priestess
    The Hierophant
    The Lovers
    The Magician
    The Moon
    The Star
    The Sun
    The Wheel Of Fortune
    The World
    
    After you've seen the 10 cards you get to generate some lucky numbers and then
    the "game" is over.
    
    The 10 cards are randomly picked, and their description is generated at random
    as well.
    
    
    ===============
    FORTUNE NUMBERS
    ===============
    
    Here you pick your state/province (using A and B), the amount of numbers you
    want picked (using select), and the range of values for these numbers (using
    the D-pad).  Then you press start and the game gives you your "lucky numbers".
    
    Each state/province has a default setting for some reason, and it's a little
    confusing given that you can customize all of the settings but the default
    settings for each state or listed below.
    
    State/Province   Min   Max   Amount
    AZ                01    39     06

    For a little while now I've had a paypal link in all my FAQs at the very bottom
    here.  Mainly as a small experiment since a few other FAQ authors have also had
    the same idea.
    
    I had a few people email me before I put this link in because they wanted to
    send money, so it's here for those people.
    
    
    For the record I've received about $87 (which works out to a bit more in
    Canadian lol) last I checked, so I've been getting cases of pop and making some
    excellent progress on a few FAQs.
    
    If you don't want to send money or can't then send me an email, it's nice to
    hear what people thought about my work and there's always room for improvement.
    
    My email address is fecalord (AT) gmail (DOT) com, and the paypal address is
    listed below.
    
    
    For those that want to contribute, you can use paypal at the following address:
    
    fecalord2002 (AT) yahoo (DOT) ca
    
    Many thanks, and I hope you continue to use my work!
