any comments on bee decks???



yep..... bee decks have nothing in common with black tiger decks other than they are made at the same place. However they are great cards for 3 card monte and they seem to fan a lot easier


Actually that's not true. The second edition of the Black Deck is made with "Bee" stock for the cards. The best card stock in the buisness.

Thanks for that snippet of information Mike. If we needed yet another reason to buy a Deck of Black Tigers we now have it! :)

I just received my red pip decks and, if anyone was wondering, they have exactly the same extra cards - the twisted AS and white 3C. The red pips look great and the AH and AD are very striking.

Since these beasties show up well in black light areas, perhaps we'll start to see cardicians arriving at the table with not only a deck of cards but a ruddy great UV light rig as well!

It also means that we can now do magic underneath those cars with the oh-so-cool UV lights attached to the bottom! Great, just what I've been waiting for... :wink:

All the best,

I'm rather excited as my first deck of Tigers just arrived in the post and are sitting next to me on the desk still sealed in their cellophane...

I wonder how long I can resist opening them...

As if we weren't suffering enough from C.U.P.S. - have a look at https://www.magicbox.uk.com/product.php/909/11486/

If you can't get there, the blurb is:

This is a standard deck of Bicycle Poker Size Cards (Rider Back), however, the playing cards have been printed with the black back (and also black box). They open up a new world of colour changing card and deck possibilities, and they could even be used with the new Bicycle Tiger Decks to add an extra twist to your routine (go from red back, to black back, to a reverse image!).

Please note that these cards have been printed by the US Playing Card Company and are to the same high standard of all of their products (in fact, we feel they are better quality than standard Bikes).

And just £2.49 per deck.

Tell me about it mate, C.U.P.S. withdrawl symptoms are setting in. Mr. Egg will not be too convinced by my pleas for medical dispensation. Can you get a prescription for C.U.P.S.?

These look great and their potential with Black Tigers will be awesome but the wow factor on their own is pretty cool too.

Does anybody know if these are just reprints of the Tactical Bikes or are they a special order in (black*)light of the Black Tigers?

*Oh, it works on so many levels!!!

All the best,

Will Wood

Thanks to a generous benifactor (cheers boss), I've just recieved a couple of these decks and already my head is swimming! The possiblities seem endless.

Although at the moment I only seem to be coming up with "fun-for-me" concepts and havn't really had any workable ideas.

I suspect this might be the situation for alot of you guys (except Seige, you creative pill popper, you. Thats a good thing by the way. :wink: ).

Hopefully we can get some hearty discussion going on ideas and the like.

OO, I'm tingly all over! Perhaps it's time to breath again.... :oops:

All the best,

Will Wood

Must of gota CUPS because I suddenly found myself reaching for the wallet.. Oh deary me. I couldn't resist any longer. I just had to get some of these cards (I'm talking bout the tigers). I ordered them from magicbox and they've already been dispatched, great. I'll give you feed back on Monday when they arrive, :D

Aren't these beauties? I'm going down to the magic circle on the 24th, I'm sure these cards will go down well when I show them to some people down there. :D
