Featuring the incredible, unique, Optical Marking system, the new DMC ELITES : ROUGE deck is the fifth signature deck produced by Sovereign Playing Cards for elite British magician Drummond Money-Coutts. Each deck has been a collaboration between DMC (star of TV special Card Shark and 2015’s Nat Geo series DMC Beyond Magic) and designer Phill Smith (Penguin lecturer and creator of Penguin's Westminster deck as well at the 5* Stegosaurus effect) combining their perfectionism and creativity to create a unique series of incredible decks. With a brace of serious improvements and upgrades on previous version, the ELITES : ROUGE deck is, quite simply, the best deck Sovereign have ever produced.

The deck features the fourth generation of the unique Optical Marking system, a powerful marking system designed specifically for the use of close up and cabaret performers (as opposed to the gambling origin of many systems). With an ingeniously hidden marking mechanic that is readable at great range, in poor light and with extreme speed, the system has been significantly refined over the last few years of development since it was first created. Each deck also now comes with a pictorial instruction card that explains the markings visually, without words.

The system hides the value and suit of the playing card in plain sight, with no decoding necessary, no mental working out to do – it literally just says the value and the suit, clearly and visibly, with a huge visible range on it. All this incredible clarity and you can still comfortably hand the deck to a layman safe in the knowledge that even if they search for marks, they will still not find them. The DMC ELITES : ROUGE are the only deck on the market now with this unique system.

The deck has standard faces and the finish is a completely new cardistry grade stock and finish. Everything about the deck has been crafted to make them super useable, from the sturdy minimalist box down to the deep red back colour to the card reveal hidden on the two custom Jokers. The DMC ELITES: ROUGE – the greatest marked deck in a generation and possibly the most useable deck for card magic available today. Shipping today.

CAUTION
These cards have been created with professional magic and mentalism performers in mind, but they could be put to work to gain an illicit advantage at the card table. If you want to crush your friends at snap, that’s fine, have fun, but cheating at games where there is a gambled stake is unethical, immoral and illegal. If you are caught then you may be subject to prosecution by the law or violent reprisal from your marks. The technical skills required to cheat at the card table are fascinating to study but Sovereign Playing Cards cannot be held responsible for any cheating that may be conducted using our equipment.

This is a beautifully made deck. The look and feel are perfect. Once you know the secret it will be second nature. I have set this deck up to open with The Butterfly Effect. Now I have the only deck I'll need.

Best Marking System for Stage and Parlor Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 20th, 2017
I've purchased this deck at a magic convention. I've been familiar with the marking system since the previous editions and I have to say the marking system is one of the most visible reader systems ever. But it is also one of the most concealed. I've heard there is a possible one way as well (I'll look into that).
The difference between the Rogues and the previous versions are the finish and the handling. This edition uses the new stock from cartamundi (their number 9) and includes an addition to the marking to allow the suits to be read in a spread. The new finish handles great and face up faros quite well and shuffles and spreads quite well. However, after some use, the cards start to warp and isn't as quite durable as the finish on the NOCs. However, they do initially handle like a dream.
Overall, for the marking system, I would give it a solid 5 (honestly would give it a 10 if I could)
The quality of the decks and the handling is amazing but starts to show age and isn't as durable as I would've liked. However, the box is thick and beautiful.

EZ Readers for "old eyes" Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 4th, 2017
Amazing optical back design makes these cards easy to read even from a few feet away, and even if you usually need glasses for short or medium distance viewing. It took me a few minutes to train my eyes to see the markings; now it's easy. Highly recommended for all your marked-card needs.

Best Marked Deck Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 1st, 2017
Even though I knew how the deck was marked, I knew it was the best I've worked with. And, for a guy that is starting to need reading glasses, ease of readability is paramount. Well, this deck hits all the "marks," pun intended. Very easy to read and yet as advertised, hard to pick up casually, by even magicians. I own at least 5 different marked decks and this deck is the best and most practical.

The most readable deck on the market. The only draw-back with this deck is---it not numbered.
I hope they go all the way on the next print and get them numbered in the Si Stebbins system.

Best "marked" cards! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 6th, 2017
These "marked" cards are awesome! Easy to learn and easy to read. You don't have to be up close and personal to see the "marks".

The Best Marked Deck Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 29th, 2017
I have several marked decks but this is by far the best and easiest to read. Once you know the secret you can read them from quite a distance. Highly recommended.
