We’ve got a double deck review for you – starting today.  In part 1 we’re looking at the Fox Targets.  Come back tomorrow for part 2 and more gorgeous pictures as we review the new Memento Mori blue deck. I like one of them rather more than the other – see if you can guess which…

Fox Targets

I really like these. Have I given the game away too early? Let’s start with the tuck case. The elegant front of the box is in keeping with the sophisticated feel to the deck. But I find the back design a little disappointing – not quite fitting with the understated nature of the rest of the deck and much more elaborate than the simple gray backs of the cards themselves.

Neither of the tuck-cases in this review come with seals on the deck – so they are easier to get into than some cards – and you don’t end up with the sticky residue or messy break.

In fact the faces continue to impress – with stylised pips and lots of white space. The large pips on the aces are particularly pleasing.  This is a deck I would really enjoy using both in magic performances or for playing card games.

I have some sympathy for the poor foxes on the jokers!  Where are you on fox hunting?  In the UK it is quite a divisive issue – so let’s not go there.

All in all, the Fox Targets are a lovely deck which is available from the Merchant of Magic for £9.50 (at the time of writing)

(Sorry for the slightly washed out images – we were shooting outside on a particularly bright day – they are much clearer if you look at the larger images.)
