In this episode we look at the latest playing cards release from Penguin Magic, the Composition Deck, give you a chance to win one for yourself and announce the winner of the Kings Wild Tiger LTD deck.
The Composition Deck was first announced via Kickstarter in October of 2018. The deck successfully raised a modest $10,000 in funding and finally shipped to backers in late january, early february of 2019. The deck comes in a white glossy cardstock tuck case printed to look like a mini-composition notebook complete with white and black marbled cover and black colored binding. The front reads Composition Deck and it’s the only text that can be found anywhere on the box. The sides are white everywhere but on the binding side. The back of the tuck features the back design of the cards, same marbled pattern of black and white splotches with the only difference being that the design on the tuck includes a black strip along the left side, meant to simulate the binding.
Pulling the deck out of the box reveals the marbled black and white card backs. The backs are one-way although you wouldn’t be faulted for not noticing. This is almost assuredly on purpose of course to add magic functionality to the deck. Because the pattern is so chaotic the individual cards can get lost among it’s brethren. This is bad for fans, which end up looking like a giant disk of white and black specs, but great for sleight of hand moves like top changes and double lifts since the spectator is much less likely to catch a flash or see a second card when the full bleed edges are so well camouflaged.
