UNOrthodox is an interesting take on the Ultra Mental or Invisible Deck effect that uses cards designed to look like UNO cards. Not only is their named card the only card reversed in the deck, but it is the only actual playing card in the deck. Unique and easy to do, this would be great in a close-up setting or in your favorite coffee shop with a game shelf.

Fun take on the ID. Might pick this up just to mix things up a bit. Just gotta wait for part of my taxes to come back in.

How much memory work is involved, and do you need a crib card.

Interesting idea, though $40 seems kinda pricey for a slightly modified ID, no? Also, I like the Dave Loosley presentation in which he says his son must have swapped out his cards, but the Antonio presentation where he does the basic ID script feels weird. I'd wonder how much more impressive is that than the regular ID given that premise. I think it's better to come up with a more unique presentation that takes more into account regarding the Uno cards.

Still, between this, You Know by David Jonathan and Scott Creasey's UNO It, someone could put together quite an Uno-based routine these days.

Are we beginning to shift from Rubikís Cube magic to Uno cards magic?

yep, because everyone has been buying everything else at that price...it has set the market to gouge us on everything until we decide enough is enough and stop buying it all.

Yes. Especially considering most folks here probably know how to and have the necessary to create such a deck themselves.

If anything, itís a minor tweak on a classic. Not to mention the cards arenít even true Uno cards and the real cards arenít even Bikes or Phoenix brand. This should be $15 at most.

I like the idea, and I think it has good entertainment value. If I was to use this in my show on a regular basis, it would be well worth the $40 to me. If I was just going to show it to a few friends and then shelve it, then it would not be worth it.

Support the creator - stop ripping people off for their imagination and creativity by making your own...

If the trick can create wonder and entertain your audience, and help you make some money, them $40 is a steal!

It's an ID deck. How is it ripping anyone off to make your own ID deck?

Agreed, it has to be in order for it to work.

I suspect this is instead covered by the odds or even question as demonstrated in the trailer, but thatís just speculation.

Correct David. There must be a 26 card restriction that is taken care of via equivoque.

But the Alakazam video demo had no restrictions. Hmmm

I picked this up at Blackpool. As above, you are limited to half the deck, however the included equivoque makes sense in the presentation. As for the price, agreed it is pricey considering you can pick up an ID in Bikes for £7, however Alakazam have had to create and print a very unique deck for this trick, presumably to avoid any copyright issues. Card stock used is nice, and it has been created with SF spray rather than RS, which will again add to the cost given the ridiculous price of SF spray.

One thing I will add - the backs of the ordinary cards are not standard rider backs. I doubt any muggle will notice or care, but there is nothing to stop you from replacing these with cards from a deck of standard bikes - or a deck of your choosing, as these cards are not gimmicked in any way.

I'm not trying to defend Alakazam here - this year's Blackpool offerings were again lacklustre, many re-treading old ground, and their own releases have been creeping up in price, however I can see where the money has been spent on this, and it is a nice little trick.
