Using a Svengali-Bicycle deck, is this an actual Bicycle deck, or does it just have the design on back to make it look like a Bicycle deck? (i.e. is it poker size or pinochle.) I bought a Royal deck, because the Bicycle was sold out and it was a Pinochle size. Most all trick decks that I have come across are all Pinochle size and very cheaply made. I would like a real Bicycle Svengali and Invisible deck.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks
James

I have the Svengali and the invisible deck, both made from Bicycle deck. Very good quality and worth buying. Smile

If your local shop does not carry Svengali and Invisible decks in Bikes, there are plenty of places online where you can order them. http://www.discountmagic.com is quick and reliable and has them available at a reasonable price (I know the current owner).

In general, it is a good idea to use the same brand for gimmicked decks that you use for regular decks whenever possible. It may make it harder for you to keep track of your own cards, but it also helps throw your audience off the scent Smile

Well I'm not sure but I think it is a svengali deck with a bike back and the bike decks are usually poker size.

Allders wouldn't be a magic shop! Check out their homepage if you don't have them in your country: http://www.allders.com/Welcome.go
I can't find their selection of magical items on-line, but if you know Marvin's Magic, they sell a bunch of their stuff.

Perhaps we're speaking English and American, but Pinochle is a card GAME usually played with "Poker" sized cards, but using a special deck that has a double of all cards 9 thru Ace. [That is "Pinochle does not imply a card size, but a specific deck content].

The standard deck sizes (in the US, at least) are called "Bridge" and "Poker." Poker being the wider size. The cards are the same length.

Theoretically any cards that have "bicycle" design backs are in fact Bicycle cards made by the US Playing Card company. If not, someone is violating copyrights Smile

Svengali decks (like stripper decks) are usually made from standard decks.
