A very special Kickstarter project has just closed: It pledged to revitalize the already hopelessly overhyped Jerry’s Nugget Casino Playing Cards big style.
According to the project page, this one is run by the Expert Playing Card Company/Bill Kalush. The project also offers a long “special thanks to” list, featuring, among others, Lee Asher, Danny Garcia, the Buck Twins, David Blaine, Garrett Thomas, Harapan Ong, Michael Weber, and the Chief Genii, Richard Kaufman. Wondering what nuggets all theses gentlemen contributed?
And boy, this thing flew: When the hammer fell, this project had collected more than 477,000 Dollars from almost 4,100 supporters and had generated 1,200+ commentaries! Which comes to show again that us majishuns are a nostalgic, money-blowing herd of unimaginative copy cats, aren’t we? (Yet a lovable bunch!)
I’m afraid magic videos and magazine photos will soon be littered with this cheap, inelegant, eye-cancer causing design. Yuk! (Just my opinion. I better hide now before Jerry’s Nuggeteers spread all over me to cut me and palm me off!)
If you are slightly annoyed about this, too, you might want to try the Chicken Nugget Playing Cards instead (see below). Go find them on ebay if you think these are even more irresistable. I could see a great but meaningless mental card food trick coming up with these…
