Strange Travelers This is David Blaine's single favorite effect. The actual deal-closer David used for most of his professional career. It helped him close the deal on his first Network T.V. special: Street Magic.
Price: $20.00
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!

You show someone a batch of twenty cards... all different.

You give her ten of the cards to hold. You now have her just think of one of the remaining ten cards. She never says a word. No one except her knows what card she�s thinking of.

These ten cards are counted again. Strangely... there are now only nine. The one card she�d been thinking of has vanished! She�s still only thinking of her card... it�s never been named out loud!

She counts the other ten cards she�s been holding... ten cards you haven't touched since the beginning. But now she has eleven cards! The strange traveler has arrived... her thought-of card is now staring her in the face!

Strange Travelers is a streamlined version of a classic effect that was Nate Leipzig's favorite over 75 years ago. Other variations have come and gone. David re-discovered this hidden gem, and the rest is history.

And the really good news: Blaine's favorite effect is extremely easy to do.

No palming. No difficult moves. Just a simple elegant handling that just about anyone can learn.

Complete with Paul Harris' revised gimmick and routines... including a version where you start and finish with a normal deck.

Strange Travelers: David Blaine's favorite effect, his actual deal closer, can now be yours.

Excellent Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 29th, 2009
This trick has an excellent concept. You need good crowd management to pull it off sucessfully. In my opinion, it is not an effect to be done to a crowd but only to one person only. I can't go into detail because of exposure but take my word for it. So this effect would be for an intimate performance not a show.

Everything that comes with the trick is of good quality. There is no DVD it is a booklet but it goes in good detail. You will have to put the time in practise to make it good like any good magic. There are many different handlings explained in the booklet. You are dirty throughout the performance and you don't end clean. The deck cannot be used for any other effects which is the reason for the lost star.

Overall great product and effect.

One of My Favorite Packet Tricks Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This is one of those tricks that many people have seen on TV.

The reactions that you saw on TV?? Let me tell you, they are pretty accurate.

The effect is very simple to perform, taught well, and comes with very well crafted gaffs.

All of this combines to make performing a breeze. You can really focus on your presenatation with this one, which is what truly makes the effect work.

Within minutes of getting the effect I had the workings down, so I started working out my patter and pacing. After several practice sessions I took it to work to show co-workers.

Their reactions?? Literally the same as those you've seen on TV!! It's an unbelievable miracle that happens in THEIR hands!! It's something that needs to be seen to be believed.

I recommend this effect to anyone that is interested in packet tricks at all. I love it!!

Slick! Report this review

Great Impact! After having time to do this one a few times now I have gotten great initial reactions, and after a few seconds the spectator seems to realize the intensity of what has just happened and they seem to have a secondary reaction! All Good!

VERY SLICK WITH EXTRAS! Report this review

First off this effect can be played to the hilt, "Travelers" will leave an impression. The instruction book is very clear and has the added bonus of alternate handlings, including a solution to secretly adding the special gimmicks to your normal deck. As always too-Kudos to your shipping department for exceeding my expectations!

Paul Harris has outdone himself here. Truly an amazing effect that will leave your spectators baffled and truly impressed. They just can't understand how their card travelled across. You'll leave a lasting impression with them with just this trick alone. LOVE IT TO DEATH!!!! Best card trick of all time for me!!!

hello strange travelers. This is quite a good effect. As easy as this is and trust me it's really really really easy. you will need TONS of practice. I showed it to my brother who is also a magician and he was so freaked out by this, BUT YOU NEED TO PRACTICE THIS!!! like everyday. Even if it's just to see if you still got it down. You need to practice everyday just to keep your toes up on this one. Would i recommend this? Hell yeah! It'll freak em out!!

This is a killer with one exception you can not pass out the cards at the end. Once you learn to get around that small issue you have a complete miracle to work with. Faces will hit the ground on this one. Easy to do with a bit of practice and you can do it anywhere.

When I was looking at this effect from Paul Harris, I knew it was going to be good. Paul Harris's handling is silky smooth compared to some other card transpositions I have seen. Only downside to this effect is that the non gimmicked cards that come with it are not all that smooth that you would expect from bicycle brand cards. But that's the only thing that I frowned upon but that is an easy fix because you can substitute those cards with your own from a different deck. Overall, love this effect. Everyone I have performed this to has been floored....every time. :)
