Is it just me, or is there really missing the KH in the 3H deck?
And what about that ugly "Joker"
Any why are there 2 reg. court cards supplied, instead of having a complete&full52(!) mis-ind***d deck of cards?

I don't like the sound of this. Can anyone else elaborate?

Quite simple:

- today I received my Master Mind Deck from Hocus Pocus (with a 3H as f**** card). No KH was included - neither a regular one nor a mis-ind***d one

- The supplied "Joker" has nothing in common with a Bicycle Joker

- instead of receiving a full/complete deck of "special printed cards" (like a Monte Cristo Deck), 2 court cards are still regular and NOT special printed ... and that for no obvious reason. Instead a "funny explanation" is given.

@Pegasus
So why don't you like the sound of this?

I thought he gave a perfectly plausible reason for supplying the court cards. You need them to spread the deck out face up. At least one of them. I suppose he could have also included specially printed court cards but I don't miss them. The joker is not a bike joker. It's actually a Maverick design. No layperson and most magician's would never notice that. I figured the reason for that decision was that the 'pip' of the bike joker is a non-descript dollar sign which might actually confuse people or raise suspicion. The other reason might be that USPCC refuses to mess with their jokers. Other than the Platt Pad (sorry) this is the most fun I've had with a new item (new to me) in a long time. No regrets here.

I've got a 3S deck and I'm pretty sure all cards are accounted for, though the KS and JH are ungaffed.
Only issue there is you can't spread to show new deck order with a Jack on one end. Grabbing a spare from a deck I use for tricks that destroy cards fixes the deck face in short order, but there's still a gap where the JH should be. The king on top isn't much of an issue.
 
I agree with Platt on the joker - even posted so separately but I think my iPhone ate the post before it made it out. Smile

Try reading the instructions / watching the DVD next time before jumping to conclusions.

Reading instructions is possible AFTER you have bought and received it!
And the missing KH seems to be just bad luck - 1 out of thousands decks had a card missing; mine. And sure I do understand the 2 court cards. Regarding the Joker: somebody mentioned it is a real Bicycle deck made by USPCC - so I assumed to get a Bicycle joker.

Anyway; Chris himself will try to help with the missing card. So I hopefully can tell soon that he has a superb customer service.

I hope Chris responds quickly Bernd, as these decks aren't exactly cheap.
