“magicians will appreciate the thematic idea that these decks represent about the nature of illusion, and they will make a great collector’s piece side-by-side on a shelf in the home of a magician. They’re also very stylish, and are of a much higher quality than your standard department store deck of cards, so they’ll be more than adequate for playing a game of poker or cards as well.” -Board Game Geek, Reviewer
Full Review “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”
Truth and Lies Playing Cards represents the dual nature of deception and honesty. They are two sides of the same coin, both interwoven deeply within every magic trick. A parade of ornate lies are what spectators are driven to see, while the bare and unembellished truth is ignored and often hidden in plain sight.
Art directed and conceived by Jason Brumbalow and masterfully illustrated by Bobby Haiqalsyah and Lance Miller, Truth and Lies Playing Cards was crafted to remind us of the Lies we share, the Truths we bury, and the duality of both. These playing cards strike the balance between two forces and combines them into a collectible set that blends one design into the next.
You’ll be thrilled with the three different versions of Truth decks (each deck having a different embossed phrase on the tuck case), and three different versions of Lies decks (again, each deck having a different embossed phrase on the tuck case). The embossed phrase illustrates that the distinction between truth and lies may not be as clear-cut as you’d think! Your spectators will be fascinated with these decks.
Sometimes the truth is just the lie we tell ourselves, but sometimes true magic can be found in the lies we tell others. Murphy’s Magic is proud to present Truth and Lies Playing Cards.
