Kipper Cards #37 #38 #39

Fin de Siècle Kipper Only:
37) Poverty
38) Toil & Labour
39) Community




The deck features workers as well as wealthy folk during the Industrial Revolution. There are 3 extra cards in this deck;

37 – Poverty, 38 – Toil & Labour, and 39 – Community.

These cards were added in order to round the deck out a more realistic perspective

of what people were experiencing at the time, both good and bad.


Fin de Siècle Kipper Only (by Ciro Marchetti

37) Poverty ~ Poverty (negation)

38) Toil & Labor ~ Hard work (physics)

39) Community ~ Community (family, society)

Kipper Maps originated in Germany, and was intended for both high and low social status, describing the everyday life of both, and so Kipper Maps have a lot of characters in their images and are considered to be broad-based cards. They can be used to predict the future, but they are specially designed to be interpreted for daily opening.

Especially for this design by Ciro Marceti, and I did it by looking at this one of my Steampunk Kipper Spil ( is that it relates to the period of the Victorian era, the period of the Indusrial Revolution, and that’s why Marcetti in this jar also added these 3 „new“ maps, in a way to round up all the potential parts of human life at that time (since it is known that it was a time where there was a huge difference between the wealthy and the poor)

37 „Poverty“:

~ a person without one or both parents, an orphaned and adopted child (or even a VTO can come under this symbolism) Very often a MALE child
(still considering in the Kipper community whether this symbolism is adopted or not – how it „works“ in opening it both benefits or not)

~ reduction, there is nothing, almost nothing, bad, miserable

~ small, irrelevant, irrelevant, do not pay attention at all, seamlessly

~ conditioned modesty, abandonment, poverty, bankruptcy without possibility of recovery

hunger, poverty, fear, suffering, pain, malnutrition

~ exploiting the weaker ones, maltreatment of children

~ dirtiest & hardest & most dangerous jobs (physical labor) **
~ a slavery relationship (which, unfortunately, exists in the 21st century)
~ complete subordination to someone who is rude & sadistic

This is not just material poverty, but also spiritual & emotional & intellectual poverty
(this does not have to be personal & free to choose a person, but the conditionality of the location & company in which it is located)
The inability to escape the problem and danger
, be stuck & trapped
~ Time frame: never, no, impossible, not feasible, do not hope too, forget it
* Explanation * In the Victorian time, orphans were bought as cheap labor and were used for the most difficult and dangerous (and official and unofficial) jobs (remember the nasty Oliver Twist who was used by a thief to rob wealthy houses)

38 Hard work:

~ abandoned child
~ the person you use the most
~ trafficking in human beings & prostitution
(similar to 38 but it’s about WOMEN child) **
~ do not have the right to vote, inequality, oppression, and complete subordination
~ potential danger to life
~ exploitation & mobbing at work
~ admitting to poor conditions because there is nothing „give what you give only that I have a dinar to survive“ (which can sadly be applied even in the 21st century)
~ work in places that are full of danger of injury and even endangerment of life (construction, mines …)
– poor working conditions (and general living conditions) that endanger basic human dignity
~ time frame: similar to 37
* explanation * in the Victorian era women had no privileges, and in particular women’s children were treated worse than boys

39 Community:

~ working class, middle class
~ equality, respect, understanding
~ neighbors, local society & associations & municipalities
~ friends and support for the environment
~ be part of something bigger and more important
~ community, circle of famous, off-campus zone
~ humanitarian societies & associations
~ time frame: always, forever, forever

In the Kipper community, many interpret this map as the situation presented in the book „Pigmalion“ ~ the rise in the society of non-education & the poor person with the help of the Betterman, so this map is considered positive in any sense (social progress, improvement, intellectual possibility of upgrading, overcoming social differences in some business & emotional relationship etc …)
