As per usual this time of year all of the big card companies ramp up on their releases for the year. All of the big companies have releases and this one is early from Ellusionist. The Purple LTD.
In what now seems to be asian tradition yet another custom Bee deck has been released to Asia. This are printed by the USPCC and are on their standard Bee stock and finish.
So this is my second review on a deck from One Widow playing cards. Another disclosure as noted on the previous. These were sent to me for review by One Widow.
The #02 deck is similar in many ways to the #01. Really what has changed is just the design. The physical properties of this deck are identical to the other.
Thanks for sticking with me readers during a short hiatus. My job has been keeping me very busy. Now back to work!!!
In my search for playing cards to add to my collection I have found many unique decks but many come from the main five online magic companies with a few exceptions. Here we have one of the exceptions. The 01 deck from One Widow. Disclosure – These decks were sent to me for review from One Widow but I assure you both decks that I have will be reviewed on the up and up.
The deck is unique from others that I have seen with a completely separate style of it’s own. Their inspiration, as posted on their website, seems to have derived from the traditional diamond back design seen on many casino decks like Bees and so on. Also completely different than a lot of custom decks lately these were designed in Canada and printed in Canada which to a Canadian writer is pretty fantastic. Alright enough gushing lets get in to the review.
