"I can't wait to try this! What a GREAT method!" John Carey

"Lewis Lé Val has created my new favourite method for divining a playing card, but my favourite thing about Black Flag is that you can use it with Tarot, Business Cards and more - This is truly BRILLIANT!" -Dee Christopher

The closest thing to a real playing card divination.

Imagine this:
You borrow a bandana and a shuffled deck of cards*. You place the cards on the table with the bandana covering it completely. You never touch them again.

With your back turned, the spectator cuts the deck and looks at a card before replacing it, the deck remains covered and out of your sight at all times.

Without touching anything, you instantly know the card they saw. Every time.

Not enough? You can instantly repeat this with different results.

- No Crimps
- No Marks
- No Gimmicks
- No Set Up
- No Reset
- No Peeks
- No Dual Reality

No Table? No Problem - Lewis also teaches a SECOND method for walk around that all happens in the hands.

By the way, both methods can be performed COMPLETELY SURROUNDED. They'll still see nothing and it'll FLOOR them.

Taught in intricate detail in a 35 minute video download with live performances and lots of subtleties and tips from Lé Val himself, with just a tiny bit of practice you'll be fooling all your friends as you fly the Black Flag.

* We recommend keeping a bandana/hankie in your back pocket along with a deck of cards at all times; once you learn this secret, you'll want to perform it EVERYWHERE!

My new favorite card force! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 11th, 2018
I broke two of my personal rules with "Black Flag." The first was "Never purchase an effect just because you're curious about the secret." And the other is "Never post a review of an effect you've yet to perform."

I'm glad I broke the first rule, as it was well-worth the $10 for something I will actually use. And I'm breaking the second rule because I think I can add things that the promo video and text do not.

First and foremost, while this is presented in the promo as a card divination, this can also be used as a force, which is how I will use it. (How many of you just roll your eyes whenever a magician holds up a deck of cards and says, "Say stop whenever you randomly choose."?)

I wasn't blown away by the divination routine presented, which is why I gave it only four stars. I'm not sure how I will add that "wow" factor, but I can definitely see combining this with an invisible deck or any number of other effects.

Another big plus to "Black Flag" is that two methods are presented. And they are indeed distinctly different methods, not just two variations of the same thing. The first method uses a move that I'd rate a 2.5 out of 5 for degree of difficulty (about same difficulty as a DL.) And the other method is only a one at its most difficult.

Good work Lewis Le Val! That was $10 well-spent.

Very Clever but ... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 16th, 2018
This routine is very clever but will require far more than the tiny bit of practice mentioned in the blurb "with just a tiny bit of practice you'll be fooling all your friends as you fly the Black Flag."
There is only one sleight involved but it is not particularly easy to acquire. If you have not already mastered this move then you will require a lot more than the tiny bit of practiced promised. However it is well worth learning to do it.
What Lewis points out is that many of us will be able to quickly learn the move for it is one of the basics that many of us will have attempted and played about with ever since we started to handle a pack of cards for magic. But if you are not a frequent card handler, or didn't have a misspent youth when you were, then you are going to have to put in some serious practice.
I'm almost tempted to name the sleight so you could judge for yourself, but I think Penguin would redact it. But the point is the sleight is not the secret - the secret is what Lewis has discovered the sleight will achieve when performed together with the black flag. It is a very clever idea indeed which does make possible a routine with a stunning effect on an audience. It does need selling strongly but this is a card trick which can be built up to much, much more, than a card trick.
So the three things which might put you off (though they shouldn't) are firstly that it will require practice, secondly that it needs selling and you need some audience management skills, and thirdly it would be pointless to follow this with any other card tricks.
However this is something that once learned will be with you forever. With a pack of cards and hankerchief or bandana and any pack of cards to hand you will have a very strong ACT which can be performed in almost any circumstances and which will build your reputation.

A magician fooler Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 17th, 2018
I thought for sure I knew how this was done but I was wrong. And I've been performing magic for over 40 years. Simple but so so devious. You'll never get caught, you can do it surrounded, it can be instantly repeated with a different card being selected every time, you can borrow the deck and hanky, there's no reset, no gimmicks and only one sleight but easily mastered within minutes of practice. Use this method as a prediction, a divination or a force. Lewis is a very clever creator.

Devilishly Clever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 11th, 2018
This is one of those small gems that pack small (you can even pack nothing) and play big. A lot of fun to do, fairly easy as well.
Lewis Lé Val is an excellent teacher — he got me immediately, as he revealed the secret and walked away. One of the best gags I've ever seen in a magic video.
Excellent teacher, he doesn't leave any rock unturned.
Very, very, very, very good.

I WILL use this Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 11th, 2018
There are so many effects I have purchased which I will not use for one reason and another. This, however will be used by me for a couple of reasons. It will work 100% of the time, it uses ordinary props (non gimmicked), and it is so very easy to do. This, for me was money well spent. Recommended.

Awesometacuar Divinations! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 19th, 2018
The methods are fantastic and easy to do!
I would suggest to perform the "in hand" version first followed
by table top method as the latter is stronger of the two divinations.

I showed this to a fellow magician in the order mentioned above. I used his newly opened deck and he's responds was,
"Ok, you used my deck... can you see through the scarf?"

I've used scarves, kerchiefs, bar and regular napkins.
Everything can be borrowed and can be presented impromptu.
This is definitely a gem for bar/restaurant workers.

WOW - A NEW FORCE! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 24th, 2018
I've been a pro or semi-pro for the past 45 years. I've never seen this. It's actually new. It's brilliant! BRILLIANT! Both on the table and in the hand taught. If you have been around cards a little, you can do this the second you see it. Some have said there is a sleight. Technically, yes but it is something almost everyone knows already or can do and since you will do it under the hanky, there is no way you even have to be GOOD at it! So if you like this buy it! Use as a force is very strong. Great teaching done fast and well. Total no brainer for $10! Buy it!

Love it...dissapointed in myself lol Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 19th, 2018
I watch the trailer several times, I was pretty sure I knew what was going on, and after buying I saw I was right. So I'm disappointed in myself for not figuring this out on my own:)
This is well worth the purchase! He deserves the 10 bucks just for coming up with this, you will use this :)
