These are good quality cards, I have had them for 8 months now and they have survived college, unlike cheaper playing cards.
A very simple system for reading what cards they are, and it is discreet enough not to draw attention to the marks.

At £5 the price is quite steep for a pack of cards, so not brilliant value, hence 4 stars.

These cards are pretty good,it is very easy to get the hang of reading the markings.but the problem is that if they realise u are playing tricks,and comparing the cards,it could be easy to find out they are marked. Also the marking are pretty small,so u cant really use them to cheat in a poker game.but as a joke/trick gadget, this item is highly recommended

  Great

Just recieved these about 15mins ago, and they apear gd. Takes a while to get used to the markings as they are rather small, but clearly you dont want them to obvious., ive been practising reading the marks and you soon pick it up, just depends how long it takes you to learn wot different marks mean. Im yet to try them out at m8s 18th birthday party(which is why i bought them) but as long as i can see the markings from across the table, i should win.

Overall they appear to be good quality cards, and can be used for any card game, even if u don't want to cheat. I can't see anybody working out that thier marked, so you shoudl be safe. They may get a 5* review, if i manage to win the poker ina weeks time.

*After the Poker Game-
Unfortunately i didnt win the game, but i think thats more down to my bad luck with the cards delt and my playing. It ws impossible to read my mates cards across the table, but was ok for the two next to me. Got a gd laugh when i told them they were marked, and even after they looked at them carefuly they still could not see the markings, so you've got no worries thier.

In conclusion, i wouldnt suggest relying on these to win you a game, especially if you gonna play for money, but thier great for joke between mates, or if u want to do some magic tricks.

If you want to cheat at poker or do a magic trick don't use pre-marked cards. They are obvious and have a system to them that can be easily picked up by others.
Readers (marked cards) like these are also a huge chunk of evidence against you if you are discovered to be a cheat at cards.

If you wanna cheat at poker, study Erdnase's Expert At The Card Table, AKA Erdnase.
As for magic, try learning some card forces or a little mentalist psychology.
Pre-marked cards are nothing more than a novelty.

I brought these for a mate as a second birthday present. He is really into card tricks at the moment. When i got them i couldn't believe that id just spent £5 on something so small! But they are worth every penny if not more! He learned how to use them within an hour and the next day tried them out. Worked a treat played a trick and the other person even looked hard after the trick at the cards and didn't see anything wrong (cause the markings on the back are so small). The trick worked brilliant and they were none the wiser to how he did it! Also once learned its a great way to start a conversation in a pub ;)!
Enjoy, well worth there money, a must buy

  Pretty good marked cards

| | See all Crayon's reviews (6)

These cards are pretty good, not sure about them being 'undetectable' though as the markings are fairly obvious, but if you're not looking for them you probably wouldn't see them. And the cards don't feel too shabby either, so all in all a good purchase.
