Polyantha Playing Cards
"Production is by USPCC with their usual air cushion finish, but the deck has a traditional cut as preferred by magicians. Given the sleek jet black look, these are the kind of playing cards perfect for low light situations where the colours are hard to distinguish anyway, and is precisely the kind of sleek deck that you'd expect to find in the hands of James Bond types in a casino setting."
-Ender's Game Review, ReviewerFull Review
by Daniel Schneider was designed to resemble a classic casino deck for the card table. Completely black and white face cards with modified Courts give the deck a modern twist that you haven't seen before.
Due to the well-hidden, yet easy-to-read Black Roses Marking System
, it's possible with a short glimpse to see which card you hold in your hand. With that feature, you are also able to perform mind reading effects very quickly, without any set-up. The borderless back design of the Polyantha Playing Cards
creates an eye-catching pattern which especially comes into play during card spreads.
Two extra cards come with the Polyantha Playing Cards
- A black casino cut card
with the Black Roses Playing Cards logo on one side.
- One gaff card
with the 2 of Diamonds on top and the 8 of Spades on the bottom of the face.
Printed by The US Playing Card Co. on crushed premium (Bee) paper stock with Air Cushion finish and traditional cut. NOTE: Although the photographs show the cards with water and ice, these cards are NOT waterproof. This was merely a way to beautifully portray the deck.
