Cool review indeed.... I had never heard about this Tree Oracle Cards...thanx for sharing!
I was always attracted by divination techniques from the very first time I saw my grandmother performing her divinatory rituals when I was a little child. I created last year the "Wisdom Of The Woods" Celtic Tree Oracle...It was in my mind since a very long time, and it was conceived not only as a rough study on Celtic Divination techniques, Druidry, and Shamanic practices, but also as a large amount of artworks related to the Celtic Tree Oracle decks and a Wheel Board which are in fact, the result of my whole study and main purpose of the subject.
An eBook concerning my studies on Celtic Divination, is available now at Amazon.com. It includes a special layout which some cute features and a personal design. This work also includes the "Wisdom of the Woods"™ Handbook for the Celtic Tree Oracle Deck and Wheel Board, available at TheGameCrafter.com

I have also developed a FREE MOBILE APP...which I am sure you will surely love....Hereby the link to the Promo Video https://youtu.be/qA3vLD5KxT8

Bright blessings Joey and keep on spreading your wisdom and videos with us! )o(

Introduction
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, I took knowledge of the Celtic world at the age of twenty motivated by my love and passion for literature and musical subjects.

Thanks to Janet & Robin Williamson (www.pigswhiskermusic.co.uk), and Irish harp champion Sylvia Woods (www.harpcenter.com), I began to incorporate, the melodies and knowledge of traditional techniques and instruments, focusing on the implementation of whistle and  Gaelic harp. Ireland, with its legends and mythological cycle, lured me to cross the main gate of the Celtic world. Passion that lead me by 1985 to organize a Celtic Festival in Buenos Aires (historically the first took place in 1960), as well as other cultural and musical activities within the Irish community living in Argentina, thereby developing an attitude because of the disregard on certain community sectors for their Celtic roots.

Convinced of the need to create a center that would bring young people linked by inheritance and / or affection for their Celtic roots, in 1986 I participated as co-founder of the Celtic Association of Galician Pipers, crystallizing my longing for a Celtic awakening in South America . Identified with a deep pan-celtic commitment, studied the folklore and history of Ireland and its sister nations, Scotland, Wales, Brittany in Armorica, and Spanish celtic, Galicia and Asturias. Along with the Celtic group 'Poitín' belonging to this Association, I played the harp and whistles,and wrote some Gaelic poetry featuring a traditional projection of my own.

In the year 1988 it was published in Spain my work' Correspondence between the Galician and Asturian Legends', a comparative test that parallels the grounds of Celtic folklore. This edition was done in Asturian language due to the management of the Celtic League de Asturias and the support of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport of Asturias. At the beginning of'90 and after several performances and a tour in Patagonia, for welsh communities settled in our country, 'Poitín' dissolves, leaving a testimony tape released independently in 1988, memorable for being the first of its kind in Argentina.

Along with Manuel Castro I published in 1993 a book of poems called 'Celtic Legacy', a bilingual edition in Galician / Spanish, unprecedented, poems of own authorship and bardic styled.

 I took part as a co-founder of subsequent bands like 'Lenda Gwyn' and 'Duir', staying active with the latter about four years, and with whom O participated in the First and Second 'Keltoi' Celtic Festival ion Buenos Aires. In October 1997, I performed  soloist in the welsh 'Gorsedd' of Patagonia, Argentina, the first since 1910, where I was invited to join the Bardic Circle at the behest of the Welsh Community of Trelew. Later that month, I quit 'Duir' to pursue a solo project due to a proposal made by a record label in California, USA. This motivated me to meet other musicians of equal entity under a new name 'Bran', with whom I issued 'Awen', my debut CD album in July 1998.

Performances led me to the Astros Theater, Opera, Margarita Xirgu, Pelayo, Auditorio de Belgrano and ND Ateneo; Irish Centers, Theaters, Pubs and located in Rosario, Pergamino, Junin and La Plata, to reach the status of beings the first Argentine to participate in the "Celtic The 5th Celtic Meeting" held in Santiago de Chile in November 2002 and in the "Primer Festival Celta" in Montevideo in March 2003. Solo performances w/ Gaelic harp led me  to various audiences and emblematic places as the Argentine Theatre of La Plata & Tortoni Café in Buenos Aires.

In the month of May 2003, the prestigious Galician folk group "Luar na Lubre" add music to  one of my poems. This collaboration is crystallized in April 2004 with the inclusion of this piece on two tracks from the album "Hai un Paraiso" published under the label Warner Music Spain. Alongside Bran, I did participated as guest

Musician of their  South American tour, performing at the Opera Theatre in Buenos Aires on 12-7-04.

Along with a friend musician , Gabriel Bollani, I developed in 2006/2007 a new Celtic musical  project that combines virtual and acoustic sounds. Songs of love and hope, along with instrumentals experience a new hue under a new style which I decided  to label as  “New Celtic”.

On September 2008 I created a blogsite of my own named  "Celtic Sprite - My  musical perspective on celtic roots and other works”. Music, culture and literature take place along with the collaboration of musicians and journalists from other countries. 

On January 2010 I created the Facebook Page “Amigos Celtas”  A site intended to spread celtic culture and activities in Spanish, along with local and foreign co-equipers.

On September 2011  I created the Facebook Page "Love of Rhiannon - The Celtic Moon Goddess". A site intended to spread celtic culture and related sources regarding the Moon Goddess in her many aspects.

2012 - On May I began to publish my own books on digital format both in English and Spanish through Smashwords and Amazon.

On May 2012 I began to publish my books which also include  digital artworks of my own for their covers and interior designs. Artworks that can be found in high resolution at my "deviantArt" site site amongst many other collaborations and commissioned works. 

On June 2013 I stared a joint-venture with the celebrated Asturian writer and reviewer Xurde Morán, and both published the eBook "The Primitive Way between Asturias and Galicia - Road Diary". Besides, he also created and supports his Official Blog (http://xurdemoran.blogspot.com) and Facebook Pages.

On July 2014 I produced the "Relaxing Sounds" album along with the acclaimed harpist Patricia Isabel Puricelli, available now at "SoundCloud.com".

On August 2014 I teamed up with the famous Dutch illustrator Babette van den Berg as editor of her unique illustrated Kindle eBook series.
