Dominique Duvivier's new sensation!!!

Seen on TV

It fooled Penn & Teller in Penn & Teller: Fool Us.

Incredible possibilities:

Imagine the deck being mixed in all possible directions (some face up, some face down) by the magician as well as by the spectator. Magically, all the cards are now face down, except a few of them... they allow you to perform incredible revelations:

  • You can predict cards
  • Or find the four Aces
  • And reveal freely chosen cards!
  • 2 decks of Bicycle Rider Back
  • A cloth bag
  • Instructions with many applications
  • Including Christian Engblom's method
  • Tips and bonus
  • A revolutionary concept
  • A secret jealously kept during more than 40 years
  • Very easy to do
What they think:

"(...) Dominique performed CIB to me at Le Double Fond years ago. (...) I didn't understand how it was done at the time (...). Recently, Dominique gave me one (it was my birthday), and I was in complete shock !"
- Gaëtan Bloom

"The great Dominique Duvivier first showed me CIB back in 2002, in Madrid. I was more than fooled! The truth is the impossibility of this miracle haunted me for years. I simply had no explanation. It was MAGIC. And it is MAGIC!"
- Christian Engblom

"The fantastic routine, CIB, is another diabolical classic from the mind of Dominique Duvivier. The routine has it all. It's practical, self-contained. It's easy to do and it fools everyone... including Penn & Teller. Perhaps the best part is that is an extremely unusual plot that makes it stand out in any show. You will use this masterpiece for years to come!"
- Bob Kohler

"It's an extreme rarity when an entirely new effect is created and it's equally rare when an entirely new method is created. CIB combines both of these. It is not only a startling new and ingenious effect, but it also introduces an incredibly clever and utterly original method. This miracle is one of the great things to come along in the last 20 years."
- Bill Kalush

"Duvivier puts in your hands, not just a fantastic triumph, but a potent weapon that is sure to improve many of your existing routines as well."
- Dani DaOrtiz

CIB is a Russian doll: the more we open, the more we become crazy!

- At first, we face a high quality packaging
- Then we find ourselves with a complete kit
- Then we discover that the trick is devilish
- Then we understand the universality of the kit
- Then we notice that there is no sleight of hand at all

Bravo for this jewel and thank you for having made it available for the amateurs or pros who can perform it with great success to the amazed spectators.

Cards in bag Report this review

Do not wait until this trick is sold out. In being involved 70 years in magic with cards, I can honestly say this is one of the top 5 tricks ever produced. It fooled Penn & Teller and it will knock the socks off anyone watching it being performed by Duviviers beautiful talented daughter. I urge anyone interested in card magic BUY THIS. You wont be sorry and I don't work for Penguin. Its just an honest evaluation form an 81 year old magician who loves card tricks.

This is an easy yet powerful trick to to! I got this from another magic dealer but my review goes her! The video is a little hard to keep up with but I understood it. The options they give are good and can be done with or without the bag! Real easy and fun to do!

Gets great reactions.... What we are so after. Instruction video a little hard to follow at times might have to watch several times but trick is easy to get down (bought elsewhere.. That's why not barefooted buyer)

Nifty effect with lots of options Report this review

I purchased this effect from another vendor as it was sold out on Penguin. I wanted to offer some insights as well as address some of the questions in the comments.

No doubt you saw this on Fool Us and that’s what brought you here to consider a purchase. If you want to know if it’s a good purchase and worth the money, I’d say yes.

What you get are cards (spectators can handle but not inspect) an ordinary sateen bag (fairly nice) and a nice bit of instruction in French and English, along with several variations and handlings.

The instructions in English are overdubbed and a bit meandering, and some of the setup instructions aren’t immediately clear from the first video but it all starts to gel by the end and I think the rather ingenious method of this trick becomes easy to understand.

Are there sleights? Not in the traditional sense, but if this is performed outside of the bag (a better, stronger option, IMHO), it will require some subtle maneuvers to hide your meaningful actions among all of the chaos that makes this effect such a head-scratcher.

Indeed, it appears the bag and pre-selected cards from the routine used on Penn & Teller were conceits to keep them from busting the trick and I think it’s suspicious when there is no illusion of choice and the magic happens out of sight.

You could, in fact, have spectators freely select cards and do the trick right out in the open, which I think could be truly devastating to lay audience.

All in all, this is a really nice effect with lots of possibilities. I would encourage you to get it and look at the alternative handlings in the instructions.
