This Bicycle Red Dragon deck is from Magic Makers, Inc. The deck sells for $9.95.
The tuck box.. the front of the box has a stunning two-tone look, using red and yellow.
Bicycle is written in yellow at the top, and underneath, Red Dragon Deck is written in white.
Below this is a yellow Dragon (this is odd, as this is a red Dragon deck). Playing cards is written at the bottom of the box.
One side of the box has RED DRAGON DECK printed on it and the other side has Air-Cushion Finish, Made in U.S.A. written on it.
The back of the box has the Rider Back design in yellow print, on a red background. The bottom of the box has From the World's Leader in Tricks and Magic DVDs www.MagicMakersinc.com. The top of the box has RED DRAGON printed on it.
Fanning, spreading, and faroing are very easy with this deck. Fanning this deck face down in a tight fan, you can get an all-red look. Fanning face-up, you get a great look of just the pips on an all-red background... 8/10.
Ace of Spades is your standard Bicycle 808 card, in black on a red background. Spades and Clubs pips are black, Hearts and Diamonds pips are yellow.
All number cards are your standard Bicycle look on a vibrant red background. The back of the cards has the Rider back design in yellow on a red background, which makes them very striking and pleasing to the eye.
The court cards... Your standard court cards are used here, but with a heavy green and yellow colouring. They look great on a bright red card.
The Joker... A bright red card with a yellow Dragon and the word DRAGON written on it. Very simple but effective. Looks very striking also.
The deck comes with three gaff cards. One double-backed card, one blank red face card and a double-backed card with reverse order which you can use to produce some nice effects (one side is the same as the rest of the deck; yellow Rider Back design on a red background; the other side is a yellow card with red Rider Back design.
Overall I rate this deck 8/10. Worth investing in for table magic.
