Hi Pegasus, yes you can remove those generic looking red cards and replace them with any Bicycle card style of your choice. What's important to note is that these "regular" cards do not have SF applied to them...Only the UNO cards do. So, if you lose one of the reveal cards or it somehow gets soiled from a spectator who has greasy hands from eating chicken wings you can easily replace the cards. The UNO cards are actually never handled by spectators.

OK, got it, but is the entire surface of the card treated or only a section?

This is important to a lot of people including myself because it determines how difficult it will be to use the deck.

Thanks Jared.

Yes, it has been confirmed more than once that SF has been used.

Videoman, the SF spray is only applied on the two opposite ends of the card...the middle section (slightly less than 50% of the card) does not have any on it to facilitate separating the cards.

So you could buy 2 and have free choice in that case. Start in pocket.

Not quite a 'free choice'. you could switch out the non uno cards for odd values and mentally adjust the markings, but you would have to steer the participant away from either the Aces or Kings as there are 6 odd values and 7 even.

Great review Alex. And as I stated, and you yourself, a 50 percent reduction in choice is backwards imo. Why would you do it? Oh well, more money saved.

You are right. I am sorry for the creator... he made a 2-deck version but it was changed.

Of course the creator would have to speak for himself but I'm not so sure this was created to be an improvement on the ID. Who said that, him or Alakazam? This is more like a quirky, playful version. I don't agree with a 2 deck version due to price and pocket space.

Hi Leo, I understood your choice of 1-deck version.

That’s why I tried to say, if a 2-deck version was provided, then we can choose no matter our preference is.

I have uploaded the Youtube review. I've started a new series called 'Alex Magic Review: Quick Look' in addition to my in-depth reviews.

I will offer quick but informative reviews on the latest products. Hope you like it!

For the price, 2 decks should’ve been provided imo.

I agree it is always nice to have a choice and we all think differently!

40 bucks and up seems to be the going price for gaffed decks these days from what I am seeing. I made my statement based on 1 deck being $40 and if they added another, then it being more. Perhaps like Alex said, a choice would make us all happy!

Like I mentioned above.. you could make this a 2 deck effect because you can exchange their cards for bikes, because it’s the uno cards that are treated and they are poker size.

That is strange, my uno card only has one end sprayed and doesn’t stay together well. Can anybody else confirm that it should have both ends sprayed ?
