My German Exchange partner gave me a Bavarian deck of cards that's normally used in a game called schafkopf. It says tarock on the front so it made me curious if there was a way to tell fortunes with them.

It is absolutely possible to use them for divination.
People use all sorts of kinds of cards for divination -- from specific tarot decks, to very artful and imaginative oracle decks, to regular playing cards, role-play game cards, and more.
It all comes down to a few things, such as what certain things may mean to the person doing the reading. It's also why there can be a very wide variance in interpretation of the same cards, especially in the more artful decks.
Thanks! I guess I'm gonna have to feel my way through this deck then. I wanted to know because as soon as I laid my eyes on the deck, I sort of had a feeling of "You are my deck" and such, so I didn't want to simply abandon it because "I couldn't find out to use it on Google"
