TITLE and Creator: The Pandora System By Shane Black

Effect: You display a Blue deck of cards, you have someone select a card. They sign their name across the card, stick in the middle, and you hand them the cards to shuffle. You pull out a Red deck of cards. It’s SEALED and wrapped in CELLOPHANE. You tear the cellophane off the pack and they break the seal. They take the cards out of the box and never let go of them. After a few magical gestures you show that the card has vanished from the blue deck. You ask the person what their card was. You tell the person holding the brand new sealed deck to start to spread the cards face up. They notice that the cards are in numerical order because it’s a new deck, you tell them to go to where there card would be. Say the card is the two of diamonds, they spread to where the two of diamonds would be. There is a face down blue card in the entire red deck. They pull the card out themselves, it is the SIGNED selected card. Everything at this point is examinable.

Video Quality:
10/10 Umm….. Two words… Paper Crane…

Price: 75$ (And well worth it)

Teaching: 10/10 The teaching is amazing. It is a very detailed DVD for a rather simple effect. He goes over everything at a pace where you really don’t need to watch twice unless you get distracted while making the gimmick and you may have to go back once or twice. (That’s it, its really good teaching.)

Quality of materials:
10/10 What you get is the highest quality of materials. The gimmick you get is made out of high quality metals, and is built to last. If you do manage to damage it he covers how to fix it. He also goes over how to make the gimmick that you have to make. He spends a lot of time on this making sure you know what you are doing.

Difficulty:
8/10 When they say “If you can control a card you can do this trick”. They aren’t being totally honest. You can do the simple version and yes all you need to know is a simple card control, but if you want to do the awesome looks very clean with no funny moves version you are going to need to know a classic sleight that I’m sure many of you know. It’s fairly easy.

Applications:
9/10 This effect has an amazing array of applications. It can do the effect they advertise (Signed card to sealed box), it can also do a completely inspect able brainwave deck, invisible deck and a lot of other things that are all completely inspectable.

Clothing Requirements: 7/10 You need to wear a jacket with an inside breast pocket or a hoodie with connected pockets.

Overall Rating: 9/10 This is a great trick, it gets awesome reactions, and is well worth the money. Don’t worry if the price seems like a lot to you. It is more than worth it. Shane has been working on this for five years and it really shows. I highly recommend this, it is just an awesome trick.

I like it when the creator of an effect actually takes some time to comment in threads about their products.

It lets me know that they actually care about the people that are buying their stuff!!
