Rounders Playing Cards by Madison - Black
I tested over 50 different stocks and finishes to find and create my perfect deck of playing cards.
With both conscious and subconscious influences from the casino industry as well as my own visceral world I believe that I found something in the Rounders that represents who I am and what I stand for.
I have always thought that everything beautiful is either intricate or simple, and I am drawn to the latter, especially in design.
I have stayed true to that idea through every stage of the design and production of the Madison Rounders.
I wanted to create a deck of cards that somehow reflected my style and ideals through simplicity. The Madison Rounders are beautifully minimal in design, they are bold and strong with only three colors used throughout. They host an Ace of Spades fit for any casino.
With help from Jeff Lianza, Peter Mckinnon, the Ellusionist team and my closest friends, I am proud to present the Madison Rounders.
I love this deck and use it as my go to practice deck. However, while it is buttery smooth when I use it practicing, I used it once for a family poker night, and the deck wasn't handled with too much care leaving it fairly clumpy now. I do however love the deck, and would definitely buy more. I also use this deck with the Gamblers, and the effects get the best reactions when thrown into a pause in a casual poker game, perfect for a quick demonstration during a toilet or drinks break.
Out of my 50+ decks, this is the best deck I've ever owned. Look and feel amazing. Bought 2 bricks.
Even though I generally like the extremely detailed graphic styles most, this deck is very stylish and it's, simply put, cool! The handling is amazing, I think this is the best deck in the Ellusionist collection, I had in my hands, so far. I've used my first deck quite a bit and its still as springy as when I first took it out of the box. I'm in love with this deck and I'm certainly gonna get me a couple more.
