NKW Playing Cards - Cadenza - the most elegant marked deck for magic and cardistry with 3 powerful marking systems.

Designed by magicians, for magicians

Cadenza features a beautiful floral back design, and comes in two carefully selected pantone colours - vintage blue and vintage red. Cadenza is printed on Legends Playing Card Company’s high quality diamond finish, known to be snappy and long lasting. Hidden in the design are several powerful features to take your magic to the next level.

Marking systems - not one, but three

Cadenza comes with 3 different marking systems (same for both the blue and red decks), each with its own features and functions. Two of them (working independently) tell you the identity of the cards, and the third tells you the Mnemonica number of that card. The primary marks are reader marks, requiring no interpretation so the information you need is always crystal clear. 

Novelty gaff

Cadenza comes with four gaff cards, two from the blue deck, and two from the red deck.

The blue deck comes with a 7S/QH double backer and a Sexy Queen. The Sexy Queen is a simple but effective gaff which can achieve many amazing and hilarious revelation routines. 

The red deck comes with a double backer and a Monte Finale card, for use with monte routines.  

Additional features

Cadenza comes in a water and tear proof tuck, making it extremely durable and ideal for your next event, be it in a challenging performing condition. 

The back of the card incorporates a subtle one-way design for those who utilises the tool. Oh, and by the way, the deck also comes in Mnemonica order out of the box so you are always ready for your stack dependent miracles.
