Imagine a spectator freely selecting a card from a normal shuffled deck and signing its face. The signed card is put back into the deck. The whole deck is returned to the box where one of three miracles can occur...

Two Jokers are stuck halfway into the card box on top of the face-down deck. The out-jogged Jokers visibly penetrate down through the encased cards to the bottom of the deck and then visibly rise back up through the cards to the top. The cards are removed from the box and spread out. A single card is sandwiched between the two Jokers -- the spectator's signed card!

A card is signed and returned to the deck, which is put into the card box. An envelope is stuck halfway into the box -- this envelope takes the same up and down journey through the deck as the two Jokers. The cards are spread out -- the spectator's signed card is inside the envelope!

Perform "The Ultimate Ambitious Card Finale' by inserting the signed, face-up 'ambitious card' halfway into the card box at the bottom of the encased deck. The card visibly rises up through every card in the deck to the very top. The cards are spread out -- the spectator's card is face-up on top of the deck!

Think about it before you buy because this is an expensive effect; if you genuinely think you'll be able to use this trick over and over then it'll be worth getting. However I got it because I thought it would be a nice addition to my ambitious card routine, but the price doesn't justify a small addition to just one routine. So I would reccommend that you think about it before you buy.

In terms of the actual gimmick, it is well made and it is very decptive too.

I'm am just a amateur magicician starting to do parties but if you want a walkaround effect that plays big this is the right one. One of my favorite qualities is that it is the size of a card case. All in all great product, Penguin!

This product when I received it was quite disappointing because I thought the gimmick was VERY visible. But I was mistaken. This trick fools anyone (if u do it right) I definitely recommend this trick. A little pricy but worth it!

Every so often an effect comes along that baffles the most astute of laymen and even the most experienced of magicians. This is one of those effects. I was reluctant to purchase this effect on the basis that I thought that an effect that is THIS visual, and THIS original, had to be too good to be true.

And I cant tell you how good it feels to be wrong. This IS one of the most brilliantly built devices that a card magician can own. Its uses are numerous, and its quality of design and construction are exceptional. the instructional DVD is a big help, although its quality is less than on par with the escalator. (occasionally goes out of focus, and has jarring camera motions, the marks of an inexperienced camera man and a low budget, but the information is valuable, and very helpful)

I guarantee that this effect will please anyone who purchases it. I am exceptionally happy with the purchase and would highly recommend it to the magician who is willing to spend a few extra dollars for a magnificent effect thats applications stretch far beyond the ambitious card routine. (it is a little expensive for the casual hobbiest, but still worth the reactions.) This one will definately be in my act!

Thanks to Gaetan Bloom for the excellent effect and thanks to Penguin for the lowest price on the net!
