Hey gang,

Kevin Reylek and the gang over at [url=http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/7191]Penguin Magic[/url] have added to the world of playing cards once again!

This time they are [i]Back in BLACK![/i] It's time to give your moves and routines a boost of extra sweetness with [url=http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/7191]Black Honeybee Playing Cards[/url] - the followup to their [i]best-selling[/i] Yellow Honeybee deck.

[img]images/Reviews/blackbee1.jpg[/img]
Designed by [b]Randy Butterfield[/b], the [url=http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/7191]Honeybees[/url] is [url=http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/7191]Penguin's[/url] nod to a traditional Bee-style deck. Instead of a diamond pattern, the deck features a borderless honeycomb pattern complete with 2 realistic honeybees walking on the back. You can almost taste the honey as you work with these cards! ;)

The faces are traditional Bee-style faces with a custom Beehive Ace of Spades and Beekeeper Jokers. We've used a deep, high-roller red on the Hearts and Diamonds plus a new color scheme and background pattern on all of the court cards.

These cards handle like a DREAM. They are printed on US Playing Card's [i]embossed Bee Stock[/i] with their Grade-A "Magic" finish for ultimate fanning, spreading, durability, and longevity. They have also been traditionally cut (the blade goes through the face side) which makes table faro shuffles and other gambling moves significantly easier to accomplish.

[url=http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/7191]Penguin[/url] has even included 2 special gaff cards that you can use for creative magic routines - AND they are including a FREE video download teaching you a cool trick!

[i]NOTE[/i]: [b]The first edition printing of these gorgeous decks is limited to only 2,500![/b] - So get yours today by [url=http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/7191]Clicking Here![/url]

I love the look of these cards, and was disappointed that they were out of print.

But ... GOOD NEWS! There's a Kickstarter currently in progress for a new and improved version of these, which look even more amazing!

I managed to get 2 of these last month from jp in Edinburgh. They really are beautiful to handle. Look fantastic in a fan and I can't stress enough how smooth and handleable (is that even a word?) they are. Will be interesting to see if the improvements are visual or practical....
