Couple quick updates on the backs. The red deck as you see in the picture above will indeed be red. The blue back is actually changing to a different color and the blue back we will unveil next Friday. I hope you are as excited as I am. We showed this deck to kids today and they could not stop going through the pack looking at all the cards. Chat later friends!

Looks nice, except the backs have a top and bottom, a card can be upside down. That limits it a bit, but otherwise a nice looking deck.

Hi wwhokie1, thanks for the comment and I thank you for taking the time and letting me know your thoughts on the back. Yes it is a one way back and I did that intentionally. Remember, this is a deck for kids as well as kids becoming magicians. One of the decks that is widely used by magicians is a Stripper Deck. I wanted a deck of cards that kids could use as a Stripper Deck, without the Stripper portion. And I teach this in the DVD that is also part of the Kickstarter package. You can show the cards to a layman, have them select out a card, and then put it back the same way you would a stripper deck. 98% of people will never realize what is happening. And other than die hard card fanatics, having cards this way really doesn't matter. These cards look like they were made by kids and that's what I was going for. Thanks again for checking it out and any questions are welcome Smile

Thanks for the comments about the one way backs. I can see your reasoning, and I don't find the backs objectionable. I do use a few select card tricks with kids depending on the age, some would work with this deck a couple would not. I will say that for a one way back it seems very subtle. In fact I had to look twice to make sure it was one way. I do like the look of the cards, and may even find myself joining in; I particularly like the ABC deck. I always loved Richard Pinner's "Kids Kards" routine (mentioned above), and wished a complete deck of those cards would be produced - but that never happened. What I would really like is some blank face and the ABC with blank backs.

I almost presume that you'll be offering a few gag cards like "NO" and 3 1/2 clubs......also double-backers and double-facers, etc. All the standard stuff. And forcing decks, definitely. I think you should print a lot of extra "Y"s, so you can make up plenty of "Y" forcing decks (who hasn't longed for one of those?)

Is a number deck possible? I like the alphabet deck. I don't like the complete words of the cards in the drawings. because I am not english. so other languages can't read it. but I like what you do, great job.

The red and blue decks will have red/blue double backed card. That is the only gaffed card in that deck. In the ABC123 deck there will be a double backer and a blank face card for you to write whatever you want. I always recommend you purchase 2 ABC123 decks so you have a full deck of alphabet cards and a full deck of number cards.

What do you mean is a number deck possible? Totally understand about not being english but you will be able to tell what the cards are Smile

Why don't you simply take advance orders from wholesalers which will save on all the kickstarter hassle?

Besides selling to magicians and collectors this is an obvious product for gift and toy stores.

We already spoke with Murphy's Magic and they will be doing an order once produced. Magic shops don't usually put down on pre-orders and pay you ahead of time. That would be nice though Smile

I think they're great cards, and I wish you every success with them. If the day comes when they're £2 a pack, and you also offer forcing decks, and blank-faced decks, I'll jump right in and buy at least 20 decks.

Right now, the cost is simply too high for me to consider, and I really would require forcing decks.

I don't get the way you're selling them. I use only red-backed cards, so blue-backed cards are of absolutely no use to me. I'd order 20 x regular red-back decks, probably 4 forcing decks (nice if you gave the option to choose the card), and 4 blank decks.

Every magician is gonna have his own requirements, but the options given don't suit me.

I think you have to decide if this is a deck for magicians, or for children to actually play with.
