Things That Make You Go, Hmmmmm…#3: Illuminatus Cards Predict The Future!

Was Obama’s presidency predetermined, years before he won the elections? These Illuminatus! cards seem to suggest just that…

In 1982, a card game based on Robert Anton Shea’s, Illuminatus! Trilogy, revealed a card depicting a black president that has a striking resemblance to Barack Obama. Keep in mind this game came out 32 years ago (reverse the 32 =23…very RAW baby!). The game has ominous secret societies competing with each other to control the world through sinister means, legal, illegal, and even mystical.

Personally, Illuminatus is right up there with Dark Tower to me in terms of epic, mind f@#king, story telling and SIIIIIIICK characters. Steve Jackson, a US game designer, who was a huge fan of the books, created the game based on the conspiracies of the trilogy. Check out some of the other cards that have strange connections to events that have happened years after these cards were printed.
