Technique Playing Cards is a tool that will help you create and expand your skills in the amazing art of cardistry. The second edition is here with an all-new colour scheme and now includes the colour system on the face of the cards! Technique Playing Cards is the FIRST and ONLY deck of cards designed specifically to help you create cardistry instantly.
It has been two years in the making and it has gone through multiple design iterations to get it just right. The deck consists of 5 back designs with a rotating border of colour. Each colour is parallel to its mate. The location of these colours is based on the most common edge grips used in cardistry. Since each back is a one way design, if you rotate it 180 degrees, you get another back design! 10 in total!
The basic use of Technique Playing Cards is to pick one (or more) of the five colours on the back and that is your contact point. Each time you break off a new packet, you reveal a new back design and also a new location for your chosen colour! This forces you to contact only that colour and ends up putting you into random, new positions and creating new movements every time you break off a new packet!
The faces have been colourised with vibrant pinks, blues, golds, and greys: with the traditional reds being pink and the blacks being a light grey, giving depth and amazing visual appeal when flourishing. Technique Playing Cards can be used for more than just random creation- it also gets you through those mental creative blocks when trying to find a closer or opener for that flourish you have been stuck on for months. By limiting how you flourish with Technique Playing Cards, you will actually improve. Play with limiting the colours you use, the number of fingers that touch the cards, or start in the most impossible grips and see where Technique Playing Cards will take you!
