Next is Black.

It was expected. No macro today, since I’m still hunting down the charger for the battery.

Name: Bicycle 808 Black

Date: 6.1.2009

Cost: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○

Black bicycle deck. You should shoot for about 3$ per deck. Though, you’re basically just paying for a choice of color…or lack of…Probably cheaper by the brick. Somewhere. Easily under 3$.

Availability: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○

These used to be at retail/drug stores. Perhaps Walgreens is where they popped up around here. They had to be available somewhere. Why else is that stupid E1638 under the Ace of Spades. I forget. But not anymore. Go to magic online stores and Ebay. And you know what that means. (What? What does it mean?)

Unlike the orange and green happy bicycle decks. This one has problems. Aside from ‘feeling’ like a regular bicycle deck, its also …heavier…somehow…Also already experiencing clumping after a day just sitting in the box.

Bicycle Black : As if we didn't have enough hold'em rules.

Dear reader,

Please run. Away. From this deck.

Thank you.

i.e. They’re cut worse than normal bicycles. I mean. They faro decently now, but it took time. Not cool.

Back Design: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○

The rider back design. In black. Black is ten colors. But, for the color challenged, they look like a really really dark blue.

Bicycle Black : Its not halloween yet. Also uneven spread.

The ‘heaviness’ of the deck makes for an easier drop. But, they also leave the cards in little packets and clumps. But at least they drop.

-Black bicycles. Why not just use red and blue. These would be pretty troublesome to find today, and then, you’re not getting anything better. Maybe I’m just biased, but these,,,,have not been the friendliest in use. Go get the green bicycles instead. Extra note: green deck came with texas hold’em rules. Orange deck came with 2 blanks. Why didn’t the green one come with two blanks ;–;. The black one comes with texas hold’em rules too : (. Boring. I’ll stick with other bicycles. thanks.
