Can these games be played with a standard 78-card tarot deck or do they take special decks?

A standard Tarot deck is fine for all of the games in the book. Some of the games use the full 78 cards; others cut the deck down by leaving out some of the cards. In the case of the Austrian games Tapp-Tarock and Point-Tarock this is to 54 cards, which are made up of 4 suits each of 8 cards, together with the 22 cards of the trump suit.

Are any of these games playable by six people?

A 78 card deck divides nicely into an even deal of 13 cards for 6 players. Seems like it could make for good possibilities for 6, but the tarot games I have looked at so far max out at 5 players....
