Thanks for the heads up Don,

I didn't actually think about the shallowness of the cut, makes sense though. I may actually pick one of the D&D one up some day to play around with then.

I would recommend just getting a standard bicycle stripper deck. If you perform with a deck that already looks different from what your spectators may use normally.. this is an easy way to cause suspicion. Quality wise, it's not a very complex gimmick, and the decks you mentioned are all made by USPCC so quality should be the same.

I see Dota 2 and TI4  :D :D :D

Haha yeah. Unfortunately I didn't go to TI4... one of my friends who makes a living streaming on twitch tv got the mousepad for me. I was pretty lucky she was heading down so I gave that to her to try and get signed.... hopefully I can make it next year if it's still in Seattle. I watch much more pro Dota 2 than actually play it, pro games are so much more entertaining than playing with dumb pubs.

You guys have some cool hobbies  :D

I am also into some sports here and there, mostly winter sports though. I live about an hour away from a decent sized ski hill so I tend to get up there as much as possible during the winter. I am also a 4th year finance student... so watching stocks kind of counts as a hobby. Building PC's has been  something I've always been interested in as well, been building them since I was 14. Naturally when having a liking for something computer related.... I also enjoy the odd video game here and there if I can get time off from work and school. :p

Website design and a bit of graphic work has been a hobby of mine for the past few years... building websites has actually carried me financially through some of my summers between semesters. You can check out my hobbies a bit more if you're interested.. I have a website now for myself.

take a look if you need to kill some time.

Haha, I haven't practiced magic in a while but I do remember some of those scenarios quite vividly. Thanks for sharing, and yes.. this is a fine place to post that.  :D

I am still kicking around. Pretty busy with other things lately but manage to check over the forum here and there.  :D

Got these bad boys in the mail a couple days ago! Feels good to add some new decks to the collection.

Hi,

Would it be possible for you to go more into detail about your plans or who you are? You will be more likely to get applicants if you provide details about yourself to show you're not just someone trying to get peoples information online. Just seems a bit fishy since your post provides basically no information, and you are new to the community, so no one knows anything about you.

That is a really awesome video. Well shot, cool concept. Definitely one of the more unique cardistry videos I have watched.

Playing Card Plethora / Re: Deck ONE v3 already???
« on: February 20, 2014, 12:41:02 AM »
I don't have experience with the v2 version of this deck. I do however have the v1 sitting right infront of me. You are correct saying that there is no cut out on the tuck in the v1, no numerals to be found.

For mac Delicious is a useful tool for organizing and cataloging about any and everything you want.

Looks interesting, might be a pretty cool option. I'll check it out when I get some free time. Thanks!

Hmm, interesting.

I don't think that showing the creative process behind magic really gives it away. For me at least, it's all about the performance, not the actual effects. The only trouble I see with the show is I don't know how appealing it will be to laymen. Sure, the majority of people may like watching magic tricks, but do they really care about how they are created? I may be wrong, but that's just an issue that I could see coming up if it was trying to gain a larger audience.

Congrats Darkderp! Once again, thanks to Nurul for putting on such a great giveaway.

Those cassette drawers are awesome Josh. I'll definitely be on the lookout and try to snag a couple of those. As much as I like the shelving I have built to display my decks, I do need something that I can use to tuck other decks from my collection out of the way. Thanks for sharing that idea.

Playing Card Plethora / Re: Most Expensive Deck Opened
« on: January 26, 2014, 03:02:07 PM »
I would say that I am in the same range as chach. I have a Fed 52 that I play around with on a daily basis. I also opened up a Red Artifice deck a long time ago, when I had 8 of them. I don't believe I have ever paid more than $20 for a deck and opened it though, the ones mentioned above where either from trades, or from initial releases.

Those photos are beautiful Jay. Definitely looks like the route I would go if/when I have some uncuts to frame. Who knows, maybe once I grow my vintage collection a bit more I might have to grab a few uncuts.

« on: January 19, 2014, 06:09:58 PM »
Very nice deck. I don't browse the design board too often so these are the first time I have seen them. If I hadn't refocused my collecting onto vintage decks, I would definitely be picking these up. The tuck on the First editions look sweet. Good luck on your KS campaign.

Very cool. Thanks for posting this Tom. Is there a place to view current bids or do we have to be a member to see that?
