Travel back to 1874 with the Bicycle Wranglers playing cards. It is estimated that in the mid-1800s up to 25% of factory-printed decks with back designs were marked. The Wranglers are no exception. Unlike the coded systems that would have been used in the 19th century, the Bicycle Wranglers have openly-readable marks designed by Phill Smith.

A marked deck is one of the most incredible secret weapons you can use as a performer. While the swindlers of the day would have used their marked decks to beat the odds at a "friendly" saloon game, the Bicycle Wranglers are to be used for entertainment purposes only.

Every piece of art in the deck is customized. The back design adopts a familiar layout featuring a galloping rider. The court cards have cowboys and cowgirls with subtle touches of metallic ink. The number cards have a vintage style with rope-outlined pips that are easily recognizable and highly playable.

Printed on Thin-Crushed stock with a linen "Magic" finish, these traditionally-cut cards are a dream to handle whether you're playing at a table or next to the campfire.

Available singly or in 6-packs with custom half brick boxes, the Wranglers are printed by the United States Playing Card Company. The cards are printed using vegetable-based inks and starch-based laminates on FSC-certified paper sourced from sustainable forests. This means the cards not only shuffle, fan, and spread perfectly for all of your favorite games & tricks, they're made with the environment in mind!

Markings hard to read Report this review

These cards are a fine quality, but if your eyes are not up to distinguishing extreme subtleties of light and dark in very small areas, better to use Penguin's other marked cards.

I love this deck! The whole vibe with the custom artwork is killer. I have so many Wild West presentational ideas!

The feel is awesome, I love the thin crush stock.

The markings are solid. No, they’re not as easy to read as Penguin’s marked maidens, but that’s kinda the point. We got spoiled by a super easy to read marked deck, and now anything that takes more than 30 seconds to learn gets a low rating from some because it requires practice.

Penguin even highlights where the markings are in the demo video. What more can you ask for? I’m at a 99% accuracy rate in reading the marks after messing with them for a single evening and I definitely don’t have 20/20 vision.

If you need the world’s easiest to read marks, buy the Maiden ones. If you want a cool western themed deck with a hidden bit very workable marking system, buy these before they’re gone!

Bicycle Wrangler Report this review

The Wranglers are a marked deck. Unfortunately I was unable to distinguish either the number or the suit. A five looked like a six, a club looked like a diamond. Even when I looked at them closely, I couldn’t distinguish them. It’s a little more expensive but I highly recommend the Phoenix marked deck. (Also from Penguin.) It is easy to read and has the high quality of a Phoenix deck.

The 'Wranglers' playing cards that I ordered were just as described and are very easy to handle, although the 'markings' are a little hard to read, very subtle, but small. The one thing that I did appreciate was the 'order acknowledgement' e-mail that I received......it was a video saying 'thank you for your order' and also a short film of "my" deck of cards being wrapped, packaged & labeled ready for despatching. I have never seen anything quite like this before, such a novel & unique way of marketing......full marks for your inventive ideas....not sure how you can do this for each customer...however, so very much appreciated...thank you Penguin.

A bit hard to see quickly Report this review

(This review is for Bicycle Wranglers Playing Cards)
I am, only now trying to handle the wrangler deck as I’m being hired as a western Magic/ Gambler for a high end Hotel and wanted to use a western themed deck. My purpose was not necessarily for the marks, but it is certainly an advantage to have the capability to “read” the cards during any given effect. However my eyes aren’t what they used to be and (even with glasses) I find it a bit difficult to discern some of the cards. I’m sure it (like anything else) would simply take using the marks a lot to quickly make that card discernment. I’m also presently professionally performing at a venue that has rather low lighting and that, as well doesn’t lend to proper perception of the marks. Don’t get me wrong… I really like the cards… Their quality and handling are equal to bicycle playing cards… I do a lot of Farrow shuffles And they do lack a bit in that arena but I still rate these cards pretty high.

Double Take Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 1st, 2021
Out of all the marked decks I owned this was by far the most difficult deck to pick up the card marks. There are much better decks to purchase if you are looking for a marked deck.
