COLOR MONTE ROCKS!!!!!!! it is one of my favorite packet trick alongside paradigm shift (queens out of control). It uses a few sleight all of which are very simple. You can adapt it to using normal cards to do a normal monte routine or whatever you would like. Montes are one of my favorite types of effects and color monte is one of my favorite ones.

no all normal cards and you can hand them all out when you've done
no extra cards or anything like that really good trick.

Gypsy Monte is better - same thing but gives a reason for the packet and performance script is great....

Also, the Penguins Only forum on Color Monte is very good. Lots of tips and variations on patter that really improve it -- and it's dang close to perfect already! Buy it before the guys at Penguin come to their senses and start charging what it's worth!

By the way, it uses exactly three cards, they are not gimmicked in any way, you can do the same effect with any three cards, or three business cards if you wanted to, it is totally examinable immediately after performing, zero clean up, you'll need only two fundamental sleights (if you don't already know them, you will learn them), it gets great reactions!

The only reason not to get it is if you have no interest in ever being a magician -- or if you're allergic to Bicycle playing cards. Even if you are, wear gloves and do it anyway! You'll love this trick.

This is the best value for money packet trick IMO, cause even if u dont have the cards, u cud do it with other cards, as discussed in the forums. Fun to perform and amazing reactions. If i were u i'd get it. One more thing, the instructions are good until one move, which is confusing but if u watch the free instructional u cant go wrong.
