Special offer details on the Rainring cards.


Special offer details

You have purchased the original Rainring pack, together with the current form of the instruction booklet.

This pack can be used in two ways:
EITHER 1) As an 81-card one-mention pack:

A] Discard the 6 instruction cards, discard the eight umpires (those with the combined green & yellow surround) and the ‘big four’ (three with a grey surround, one with none at all)

B] On the remaining 81 cards (the ‘grid’ cards) read ONLY the mention under the picture on each card

This means that you have converted the 4-mention pack into a 1-mention, just like the one offered for interactive play on the web site.

There is nothing inferior about this version, any more than the tarot, for example, is inferior because only one side of each card carries writing.

OR 2) a) as a 94-card 4-mention pack.
To do this, discard instruction cards number 1,2,3,5 & 6, but RETAIN number 4. You will use this as the ninth (reversal) umpire – as follows:

OR 2b) Simply ignore the above, use 8 umpires, and lose some reversal capability: there is no reason why this can’t be done – you will use a small amount of functionality, but this is still Rainring! We used this for years before we came up with the idea of reversal umpire.

NOTE: Some years ago we decided to create this additional reversal umpire functionality. For a number of years, with our own packs at home we operated exactly as outlined above. There are now, since a couple of years ago, packs available which incorporate the new umpire as illustrated. However, in order to re-format the original pack to include this, I have to break open the old packs and re-box them. This is why it’s worth my while to offer this very low price on the original pack, as all I have to do is add in an instruction booklet and put them in an envelope. As for you, you pay a lot less, but get only slightly less.

Finally, please note that for the MEANINGS of the cards, users of all versions of Rainring are asked to use :arrow: v2.pdf  (Sorry, I need to figure out how to upload this link…stay tuned)

Rainring #40 Soul


We have to come to end of Part 1. A different central figure continues in Part 2 of our study series. 

Rainring #40 Soul speaks about the ebb and flow of conscious-unconscious balance. It can be about those ‘ahhhh’ moments in your life when things begin to make sense.

I hope you have enjoyed your studies thus far. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to comment or private message me and I can forward your inquires to Peter who is more qualified to answer than I am. I, too, am learning all about the Rainring system. There is much more depth. We have only touched the surface by introducing the basic meanings.

Rainring #39 Deflation


And so we continue with our Rainring study series with card #39 Deflation.

I love the image of this card. It describes situations when

you are taken down a peg or two. You aren’t as great as

you think in someone else’s eyes. Did you do something

to warrant this reaction?


Sure, you felt very smug today in your opinions but

someone will cross your path that will set you straight.

Take the message of this card and remember you are not infallible


If you happen to choose this card as a daily draw be

prepared to come crashing off your pedestal. Your input is

probably won’t appreciated. Learn the lesson, move on

and don’t dwell on negative thoughts.


Note: After we study card #40 Soul, Peter Ryley (creator

of the Rainring system) will offer earlier versions of the

cards at a discounted price. Stay tuned….

Rainring #38 Inflation


The next card in the Rainring study series is #38 Inflation. Are you walking on cloud 9 for some reason?  Be careful you don’t fall off with a big bang. It’s important to have your feet firmly planted on the ground.

Is the situation really as wonderful as you think it is? Are you full of yourself today? Self-confidence is wonderful but a ‘holier than thou’ attitude will set you up for a disappointment.
