Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Who should use The ONE?

A. The simple answer is anyone and everyone. The ONE is designed and produced to make it easy to handle so even if you're not a cardist yet per say, you can still easily fan this deck.

Q. Is The ONE the same as your other MPC decks?

A. No, The ONE is a completely new product which has been in development for close to 3 years. A new card stock, finishing and design is put together to make this deck what it is. It marks a significant milestone in the history of MPC.

Q. Why is it not for playing?

A. We designed this deck to be used specifically for cardistry and card performances such as close up card magic.

Q. Who designed the ONE?

A. The ONE was designed by Alex Tse who aptly named the deck called The One for several reasons. The design is based on the number 1. This is the 1st deck that uses this completely new development on playing cards. The aim was to create the best possible deck in terms of feeling and handling for performing Cardistry and card magic so that it will become the number 1 choice for practitioners of this art form.

Q. What is Cardistry?

A. Cardistry is a name given to the performance art of card flourishing. The term is a portmanteau of "card" and "artistry". Unlike card magic, cardistry is meant to be visually impressive and appear very hard to execute. People who engage in cardistry are colloquially known as "cardists". Source Wikipedia

Q. Why is it called “BETA”?

A. Originally the word BETA was used on the ONE deck which was first-released and distributed at Cardistry-Con 2018 to signify the deck was at a beta testing stage. It was supposed to be removed once we were ready for the official release of this deck but everyone seemed to refer to this deck as the BETA ONE, so we decided to keep it and use it to denote the name of the special varnish used on the cards.
