no play on words for the title. thank goodness. and we’re back. digging through whatever decks are sitting in my stash again :__:

Name: Tally Ho Fan Back
Date: 7.13.2009

Cost: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○
Good mileage for your cardistry dollar. Or dollars. Depending on how much you want to stock up on these. Make sure you stock up on good ones. Not cheap quality ones. Yea. There are cheap quality ones.

Well.  Its difficult for most people to find these in stores. You should check online stores. Especially eBay for good brick deals. And stuff. But , but,,, I heard either fan back or circle back was going to be unstocked from production. Forget which one. But yea. Good idea to pick these up. Now.

Well. Not playing with these enough, they feel like bicycles to me. But that’s a horrible comparison. Because these have a super linoid finish. But yea. it’s a good quality stock with aircushiony dimples. Apparently preferred by many for card magic and XCM and such. Life. Uhm…personally , they’re cheap enough that you could get away with tossing them out eventually.

My personal opinion. I enjoy Fan backs more than circle backs. Yep. Must be the small little birds on the fans. I like small woodland type animals.__.

Pop Out Move: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○
Take no heed to this move I’m posting. Its just. Really frustrating to me. In terms of practice. Blah blah blah. I mean, all decks work for this move. But I’m just taking it out on Tallies. At the moment. Hahah. Fun stuff. Needs to get back to work. The CK version of Piet Forton from t11.

-I picked up a brick of these off of eBay for about 25$. Yay. Last year. Most of them(blue) ended up as gifts. The reds one ended up as practice fodder/fuel. Hm. Ramble time. The actual ones I got, seemed to be lower quality. Like. Less perfect feeling than what they should be. Still recommended and stuff. Cause. They’re awesome cheap. Ness. In a linoid finish bundle. Yep.

Bee Casino Sam’s Town

Name: Bee Casino ‘Sam’s Town’

It’s a used yet uncancelled deck from a Las Vegas Casino. Well, that probably means I got it off of eBay. 5$ for this one with shipping. I like it.

A little difficult to come across this exact casino. As for the same brand…. Bee cambric finish…on uncancelled casino decks….that’s a little difficult too, if you’re going for older stock of cards.

Sam's Town : No Bee Ace here, you get a Boyd Ace instead. Solid.

It’s Bee’s cambric finish. The good one. I’d imagine these were awesome at one point, but age kinda killed it for this deck. However, all the good qualities are there I guess. Good snap. Holds well. More durable than a bicycle deck. Fans wells. White borders? How about no borders but its white. Makes for (un)interesting fans and such.

Sam's Town : Notice the extra pips.

Nothing bad here. Nothing exceptional either.

It’s no background, with the casino logo twice. Excellent. Simplicity is always a plus here. But then, there’s no borders. Might be confusing if you have selective amnesia like I do. What. Nothing…

Uhm. Boring. Hm. If you like blank fans and spreads like I do. Then this is indeed a good deck. Assuming you use the back. Because of the extra large “border”. Yup. As for the stock. I had to also revive this deck using fanning powder and now its awesome. Like some of the other decks.

-Sam’s Town. I used  to go there with my family when I lived in Las Vegas. What. I lived in Vegas…? Yea…that explains a lot. Sort of. This deck has some abnormalities. Aside from the usual ‘casino’ red. And the indifferent back design. It’s a gambling hall. The back design ,,,it says Gambling Hall! Like the indices on the 10 through K and Aces. As for the spot cards, theyre indented towards the center a bit much too. Check out those spreads. Scary. If I could travel back in time and make custom cards for myself, I’d use this stock. Maybe. Theres a few others I like more. But we haven’t got to them yet.
