Very clever method! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 5th, 2018
After having watched the teaching video, I am very impressed with the simplicity yet brilliance of the method. This is something that can be performed very quickly after learning, and in the hands of a good performer, this will get amazing reactions, in my opinion. Good for the beginner, good for the pro.

Good for Camera Only! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 7th, 2018
I'm confused why everyone is rating this so highly. As soon as you see it in your own hand and not on camera, it becomes painfully obvious what is happening. I've shown it to three people so far and all of them instantly saw what was happening and gave me a "You're better than that" look. I don't film my tricks to put online so I can't comment on how well it would work for that purpose but for real-world applications, for me, it doesn't pass the smell test. Unless you are standing several feet away from your intended audience (and not, as they show in the instructions, with someone standing next to you looking straight down at it) expect to be called out for this one.

I should've known better . . . Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 21st, 2018
I feel like an idiot for buying this.
1. I don't like that you have to have things set up beforehand, and ends dirty. That alone makes it not appealing to me.
2. Secondly, you really need the conditions to be perfect:
a. cards to be perfectly shaped to line stack up right
b. Dark performing environment
c. Spectators that are as dumb as I was in real life as I was watching the trailer. I mean come on, it's so obvious that most anyone would dismiss the method as foolishness. And they may make some people argue that this is a strength of a trick which allows it to get by spectators when performed correctly. But don't take my word for it, go ahead and buy the dumb trick and feel the need to kick your own butt as I now do too.
d. This is pure speculation, but I wonder if creators of tricks get all their brothers, sisters, cousins, parents and grandparents and aunts and uncles to write positive reviews for them so their crappy tricks appear to gain favorable impressions. Or maybe get the whole staff at Alakazaam to write a positive review?
3. I should've known better. This trick sucks and I am a dumbass for buying it.

This looked so good and was so easy to put together I literally went out at 11:15 at night to head to Albertsons to pick up what I needed(In Vegas they are open late).

You will be able to do this trick with very very little practice, were talking two minutes here. Buy this now and start having some fun.

The only suggestion I have is to use the Jokers instead so you're still working with a full deck.

Great Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 7th, 2018
This is a fabulous trick. Requires no skill. Simple and easy to do but highly mystifying and very deceptive. “Punched” provides a double surprise.
1. The top card with punched holes mysteriously vaporizes right before your eyes.
2. Then reappears in the deck, magically finding the spectator’s selected card.
Lewis Tranter must be a genius. Simply an amazing trick. Great for beginners as well as seasoned magicians. Incredibly creative with excellent video and clear instructions. Nice job Lewis.

A moment of seemingly real magic! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 6th, 2018
When you learn the secret here you're going to swear that it can't work as well as you'd expect. And to be fair, there is an extremely small set of angles (depending on lighting, etc.) that could make this trick a little less fooling. What you'll find, however, is that you're going to want this trick with you constantly. It's a fantastic piece of art that, at its core, appears as pure a magical moment as just about anything you've ever seen.

To put it simply, this trick is going to fool YOU half of the time, even though you know what's happening in your hands. When I need to reset (a process that typically takes about 5-10 seconds with your back turned) it typically takes me much more time to find the sneaky gimmick (that I manipulated myself!) than it takes to actually put things back in pre-performance state. I've got decent, not-old-man eyes and I can't even easily spot the gimmick in it's post-trick state half of the time!

No, you can't let the spectator inspect the deck until you've done a very small amount of work. You can, however, let them inspect the gimmick that finds their card (and that chosen/signed card itself!) as much as they want right away. They can even remove both that 6H (or whichever other card you used to make the gimmick) and the chosen card from the deck themselves!

You should absolutely be learning this trick right now.

Great visual illusion and easy to learn Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 2nd, 2018
The video was easy to follow and to the point. The trick is easy to learn and should have a good 'wow' factor (I haven't tried it yet).

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because it uses a gimmick that must be carried with you, so is not impromptu.
