You gave us a challenge and... we have achieved it! MIXTERY ROL can also shuffle 100-card Commander decks with a single sleeve. Here we leave you the demonstration with the new improvement that we have developed without implying any substantial change in the shuffler.bottom of the page.
We want you to have in your hands the first manual shuffler for Magic or TCG size cards, with double sleeves.
Our role shuffler is:
100% RANDOM: our patented system makes it impossible for cards to be shuffled the same way.
100% MANUAL: the position of the hand, the position of the shuffler, the force you apply and the weight of the cards all influence to ensure that the mechanism is 100% random.
100% CRAFTSMANSHIP: the shuffler combs treat Magic cards with the same affection as you. This makes the sleeves suffer much less than manual shuffling, so you'll end up saving money on sleeves in the short term.
100% RECICLABLE: made of FSC Mix certified cardboard, obtained from FSC certified forests, recycling or controlled wood.

We want you to be the first person to enjoy a shuffler designed for up to 65 Trading Car Game cards, with a double sleeve or 100 single sleeved cards.
To motivate you even more we have 50 packs (Shuffler + Illustration) signed by hand by our beloved Salva Espín.
In case you do not reach the top 50, you can still get the pack (Shuffler + Illustration), but to get Salva's signature you will have to look for him in one of the hundreds of face-to-face events in which he participates. We are sure that he will be happy to sign it for you!
Finally, we have also thought about the distributors, we include packs of 4 and 8 units so that you can have Mixtery Role in your store or game bar. This reward is only available when shipping to the Spanish peninsula and the Balearic Islands, if you are interested but you live abroad, or you want to get a larger batch of shufflers, please contact us.
MIXTERY ROLE is a reality, it is already in our hands and now we want it to be in yours. The objective of this campaign is to be able to produce it on a large scale to meet the demands of the national and international market.
Our goal is to launch the campaign during the last weeks of February. The campaign will be active for 40 days. After that, we will manufacture MIXTERY together with our suppliers for 3 months. At the end of June we will start preparing shipments. We are confident to deliver each and every shuffler throughout August 2022.
That is, we go with all in to September 1 as the maximum date for you to receive MIXTERY ROLE.
Interview with Friki Vetusto where we tell it all.
It all starts with an idea. Well, in this case it was with 160 ideas. We had to discard some of them and luckily or unfortunately, it was not by chance.
14 years ago, Jerónimo Lario Mañani, CEO of Mixtery, embarked on the adventure of inventing. It has been a long road in which we have encountered many obstacles but the enthusiasm to learn at every step has led us to get here.
The first steps were simple: think of a product, find a problem or improvement, and find a solution for it. With the shufflers it was clear: the market only offered very large electric shufflers that depended on an algorithm, that is to say they did not offer 100% random shuffling.
Through the television program "Your chance" we met Guillermo Alonso from "Invention Factory" and his team of engineers. We showed them our ideas and together we chose the most interesting ones to deepen and create their development.
Our personal experience playing poker with friends had already shown us that we needed a shuffler, so with Guillermo's go-ahead we opted for Mixtery Poker. A much more effective, practical and useful card shuffler as it is totally random, does not require batteries and is much smaller than those that currently exist.
We already had the first Mixtery shuffler! Now it was necessary to find thermoplastic die-making and injection companies to be able to manufacture the product ... and here came the headaches. The budgets we received were exorbitant. We had to find a plan B.
At this point an important Belgian multinational appeared, the number one in the world in card games according to themselves. They were very interested in our shuffler but after sending the prototype we found that they offered us a price below the production costs. Wow! Another stone in the way, but also another injection of motivation to see how Mixtery interested large companies.
While we were looking for a way to make it economically viable, the door was opened to the world of role-playing, quite unknown to us at first. There were many people interested in knowing if we could shuffle TCG cards, Magic size, Pokemon ..., with double sleeves.
In order to answer that question and discover a whole new world, we went to “Seven heroes”, the shop of our beloved Salva Espín. They informed us of everything and encouraged us to develop Mixtery Role. It was a 180º turn. Mixtery Role had to be able to shuffle many more cards, protected by a doble sleeve. That implied to shuffle in a vertical position, resulting in making a wider shuffler.
This time we opted directly for cardboard manufacturing. We made more than 15 prototypes until, finally, we found our way to Mixtery Role: it had to have two separate pieces, a totally watertight interior that would prevent the cards from getting stuck and, finally, a cover partly tucked inside the shuffler to prevent cards from slipping out.
The next step was to find a manufacturer capable of producing it with as much care as we had developed it. Mixtery Role is a hand made product, made unit by unit.. Finally we find “Envases Tendero S.L.U”, some authentic cardboard artists. Once we got in touch, everything was smooth and by the summer of 2021 we already had the first professional prototype.
When we presented the final result to our friends from “Seven heroes”… they loved it! So much so that Salva Espín himself was delighted with the invention and he agreed to ilustrate it.
After all, with a lot of effort and dedication, we have come to this VERKAMI. Now it is in your hands to start the game and make Mixtery Role a reality.
