How funny, I just literally PM'd Pete before reading this post to tell him that Hayashi came to the UK and showed me the Cannabis Effect with the Blizzard switch at the end. Fooled the pants of us!!

I think the deck could be much improved and the impact increased if instead of printing them with a GREEN background, you used white.

That would be rather bizarre - a white background to the card?

How odd would that be?

Mark.


Absolutely; I saw a magician performing with one of those decks, and lost all effect with it because the spectator misread the card, since the pip coloring was backwards. Very anti-climactic.

Obviously geared toward collectors - not very nice looking...I prefer the regular (white-faced) green-backed Bikes to these.

I'm a sucker for different coloured decks of cards. Maybe save them for manipulation rather than close-up though,

Sadly, I must purchase them at one time or another just to have every set of bicycle playing cards ever made.

I also need some green cards for Elmsley's dazzle.

A Bicycle Deck that has Green Back, and Normal white background faces would be good.

You can pick those up at MJM Magic, or possibly your local shop.

How about a routine called "The Ugliest Deck in the World"; many possibilities with that. Remember excentuate the possitive aspects of the deck and you'll come up with something.

I'm slightly color blind...to RED AND GREENS!!!! I there are times when I can't see the numbers or pips on the "red" cards at all!.. Add this to the fact that these cards are ugly...like puke. I think you know my opinion of these cards.

I just picked up one of these at Barry's in the DC area (Rockville, MD). It will be handy for halloween... "Since Halloween is upon us, lets use an orange deck" sort of thing.

New trick-- take out the green deck... throw it in trash/burn it with flash paper.... then take out a blue bicycle deck . I can already hear the crowd applauding. THis deck is nasty..

Maybe we could call it The Merry Christmas Deck! Or Not

Please help... USPCC should ban the production of these cards.
