I found a great deal on Bicycle Cards. I got 100 decks for less than $40. They are Pinochle decks so I have lots and lots of court cards. Any ideas of what type of gaffed decks I can make other than 52 of one card or a 6 card force deck? I have 50 ea. of blue and red.

With a few extra decks of regular cards, you can make a HEAP of Koran decks with them.

The court cards and aces are terrific for Card Warp. If you do a lot of table hopping, that's great.

Best,
Ray

After going through and sorting the bluebacks, I found an extra benefit. I now have over 2 decks worth of BLANK blueback bikes.

Ray, I'm not familiar with Koran deck. Please explain (or PM me if needed)

you could make 100 one way forcing decks and sell them for a huge profit

How many do you want? Smile I'm just joking. I did think of that, but that's not my intent. I've actually sorted them out and created all one way force decks. I'll probably keep a few decks and find a use for the others. I'm still open for suggestions, though.

Rob,

The Koran deck, named after Al Koran, has no religious connotations. It is also called a Bank deck. Jim Krenz wrote a pamphlet with ideas for its use. Probably available from Magic, Inc. in Chicago. At least Jim was working there when he wrote it. You can also find it in the book "Al Koran's Legacy."

Rob,

At the price you paid, you can afford to practice the Torn and Restored card until you get really good at it.
