"Chris is onto something. Love this."

"What I think is so great about Technique is how simple and easy it is to create new moves by exploring unknown possibilities. The design seamlessly adapts to the fundamentals of cardistry while simultaneously offering infinite new directions for cardists to explore. It's like (Technique) has unlocked a Pandora's Box of new moves and I can't wait to see what comes from it."
- David Buck
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 color. Each color is parallel to its mate. The location of these colors is based on the most common edge grips used in cardistry. Since each back is a one way, 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 colors 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 color! This forces you to contact only that color 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 colorized with vibrant pinks, blues, golds, and grays: with the traditional reds being pink and the blacks being a light gray, giving depth and amazing visual appeal when flourishing.
Technique Playing Cards can be used for more than just random creation, but also getting 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 colors 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!
This store is amazing! We just dropped by out of curiosity - and stayed for over an hour. Nick is probably the coolest human being on earth, never felt so entertained and informed in a store before. Came without big shopping intents, but spent around 170$ on several smaller tricks. Regrets? Hell no. 10/10, will visit again
I finally had a chance to visit Fantasma Magic today while in NYC. If you are any kind of magic or Houdini enthusiast, I can't recommend this place highly enough. I met John and Jack - both very nice guys and amazing magicians. Definitely a bright spot in the Big Apple.
When you go, ask for Nick...He's got you for all your Magic needs! Greatest magic store in NYC, heck even USA.
Nick is AMAZING!!!! Not only is he an incredible magician, but he is a fantastic salesman and human being!!! When I'm having a bad day, Fantasma is the place I go, and Nick gives me a reason to smile. Amazing service and shop. I constantly recommend Fantasma to EVERYONE! I wish there were more stars to give!
The coolest place to hang out and buy amazing magic at great prices! Nick is one of the coolest, friendliest and amazing dudes I've ever had the pleasure of meeting!
