A terrific coloured deck - especially great to use for magic
This deck looks like a standard Bicycle deck, but closer examination reveals that all the colours are reversed. For example, the card backs look just like a standard blue-backed rider-back deck, except what is normally white is now blue, and what is normally blue is now white. As a result, the card-backs of this deck have blue instead of white borders, while the main rider-back image looks like a photographic negative where the colours have been reversed. A similar effect has been applied to the face of the cards. Both the red and the white pips really `pop' against the blue background, and look fantastic!
Besides your standard 52 cards, the deck comes with one standard Joker, plus three gaff cards: a double faced Ace of Spades (one side is a standard Ace from a regular Bicycle deck, the other is like the one in the Blue Reversed Back deck), a standard Ace of Spades with the Blue Reversed back, and a blank face card.
The packaging provides a link to a downloadable video with around 5 minutes of teaching by Rob Stiff with Rudy Hunter. The video features the first generation backs, but since only the card-backs have changed, the effect that is taught works in the same way with the second generation Ice Blue deck. Colour changes are always a lot of fun, and when combined with the blue colours of this deck, the gaffs included here can create some good effects.
The Bicycle Blue Reversed Back deck has just the right amount of customization to make it turn heads, while still being familiar enough to use for playing traditional card games, or performing card magic. The extras that come with it will make it especially attractive to magicians, but anyone can enjoy this deck. - BoardGameGeek reviewer EndersGame
