I purchased 3 boxes of unsorted, cut Casino decks from Spinitti's. The decks are Treasure Island, Mirage, and Paris. I have had fun sorting them and making decks.
There are about 140 decks per box. Each box only costs $15.
Does anyone have any ideas on what I should do with the decks. They are like new, but have the cut corner and marks.
I thought of making forcing decks, or maybe a Hofzinser card with the matching casino deck.
Thanks,
Roger

Wow, that is a pretty good deal for practice decks. Assuming the card stock is high quality...

I would like to hear what everyone has to say.

Hello Loyaleagle,
The Mirage and Treasure Island are Bee's.
The Paris decks are Aristocrat's.
Since these were from the Bacarat table, a lot of the cards are brand new...

If they are red diamond backs use them for card manipulation.

I agree. You have a story about how cards that are cut act strange when folded and slid inside each other.

You now have all you need to work on knuckle buster sleights, flourishes, and even learn how to turn a deck of cards into a weapon.
People have been calling me "Yu" lately. I don't know, must be Chinese.

Hello all,
Thank you for replying.
There were some good ideas here.
I like the Svengali deck idea, and Darwin's Warp Deck.
Yes, they are great for practicing the Zarrow.

Hello Daffelglass and JensMadsen,
Yes, I did purchase them in person at Spinettis in Las Vegas.
They were only $15 per box and you can make about 140 decks from one box.
If you order it online thru their website, the shipping makes it uneconomical!!!
If you ever go to Las Vegas, best bet is to purchase the box in person.
I just finished sorting the Treasure Island decks, and they are like new!!
Thanks,
Roger

One of the Local 99 cent stores was selling casino decks a few months back, great for practice , especially for learning the mercury fold!.

A couple of years ago, I purchased a "rainbow deck" of cards from all different casinos. I think it might have been from Tyler Corbin. I think the effect that came with it ended with the four Aces being revealed rather than just a matching pair of indifferent cards. But to make this deck, you'd need cards from a lot more casinos.

Mercury card fold practice just like JordanL said. What about fans and manipulation practice! I believe there have been Ideas about writing down a trick you know on the face of a card and make up a deck or two...shuffle it up and practice the trick written on a random/chosen card!


how about card house?
