If you want to dress-up your card effects, Ellusionist.com's Bicycle Red Gaff Deck offers an intriguing and comprehensive collection of gaffed playing cards that you can use with a normal red Bicycle deck. While the deck contains some well known standards, there are amazing, visual variations that can form the basis of some amazing effects.
A Wide Variety
Some of the many variations include red-backed bicycle cards that are: shot, aged, inverted, torn, mis-made, blurred and more. There are cards that offer predictions. In the case of the "zippered" card, for example, a playing card with a zipper can be "unzipped" through the magic of a color change (see Shapeshifter
) to reveal the prediction card.
Some of the creatures depicted on cards are downright creepy and lend an air of mystery. There are also mis-printed cards where the pips are gathered in odd ways-perfect for printing and wild card effects.
The gaffed cards are high-quality, Bicycle cards that fit right into a regulation deck. Ellusionist.com sells a companion DVD, Army of 52 Gaff Training DVD, which explains how to use the gaffs. Ellusionist.com also sells gaff decks for its Black Tiger Deck
, as well as for its Ghost Deck
Buy this deck, hone your favorite card and color changes, fire-up your creativity and get ready to blow spectators away.
