The explanation video was hard to stay awake watching. David was David; overdoing what should have
been a simple five minute teaching. However, at the 45 minute mark, I nodded off. This is a very
overpriced trick, which can be done without buying it. Should have been a $5 download. I'm
returning this, and will move on. David Regal is a talented magician, and his large (also
overpriced) tome is pretty good for a few decent illusions. What can I say? I'm a hobbyist who
appreciates a good gimmick, or a good sleight, taught well.

I will admit I have an ACAAN fetish. What can I say? It’s an impossible probability and I love that.
I also LOVE deal and then stop tricks. This is the best I’ve ever seen! And I buy every single one I
find. This reminded me of the Ultimatum Deck but is so much better because you don’t have to worry
about the location of the gimmick. You can handle the cards just as you would a normal deck because
it essentially is. You can do any card set that doesn’t require but 40 cards or so and then do
Simpatico Plus and KILL! This is real magic folks. It’s totally effortless and easy to do and it
will make you feel like you have magical powers. This has officially passed the girlfriend test and
she had NO CLUE how it was done. It’s beyond clean. Seriously folks, buy this! You may be familiar
with the so called gimmick but it sounds like David originated it. Pure genius!

I would pay more if there were subtitles. He gabbles his teach-in. I think the trick is good but how
many times must I watch it before I get every detail?

This is insane!!! Got this today and absolutely floored people at the bar an hour thereafter. The
fact that the Magic seemingly happens in their hand is mind blowing for them and fun for the
Magician to watch! David Regal is the Man!

I always use headphones for listening to the explanations.
Eventually I will just give up buying
stuff because the nsound is so moderate/mediocre/average. Subtitles are a rarity.

This effect is stellar! I recommend this over totally hand off by Danny daortiz. It only involves
two people and it's way easier on the handling. Also, it's a good anniversary waltz replacement!
There's two versions taught and both are killer! Simple is always best in my opinion! Buy it now!
Thank me later!
Dave Regal's "Self Evident" has been one of my favorite go-to effects for many years. This duo of
tricks is based upon a similar method/concept, but the feel of the Simpatico tricks is different
enough to be definitely worth the investment. The subtleties employed really sell the tricks. With a
lot of magic the details make the masterpiece, so I'm glad that Regal took the time to explain the
details that make Simpatico work so well. He is a great communicator/teacher.
I also like
the idea that I was able to see the explanation via digital download before actually getting the
"gimmick" sent in the mail. Like most magicians who have been doing this for a while, I've got the
necessary things at home to make up the Simpatico Plus decks myself while I wait for the gimmick to
arrive. I would have gladly paid the asking price just for the information, so having the cards sent
is something I see as a bonus.
My only gripe is the shipping charge of $5.95 for standard
(non-priority) shipping. Taking advantage of a periodic free shipping offer would have been smart,
but I was anxious to start learning the routines.
To easy to do similar effect with a regular deck and a DL...Not worth the pocket space...never
opened it. If anyone wants it let me know..
i just love this effect,really really cool it will take a little learning but well worth it.
Well done like the any card at any number, very well done.
