Magic Card



Release: 1975

Manufacturer: Nintendo Co., Ltd.

Nintendo’s Magic Card set is a slightly updated release of Miracle Trump (ミラクル トランプ) from 1972.

The blue lenses within the pair of glasses enable the wearer to (sneakily!) read a hidden code to identify the value of each playing card from the reverse. Magic indeed!

This is not Nintendo’s only foray into magic trick playing cards, so keep a look out for other examples to be added soon!
