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
Out of stock.

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!!

I really liked this trick. It comes superbly documented with a thick manual full of instructions, ideas and illustrations. It does not come with a dvd although one is really not necessary.

Blaine's favorite Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 19th, 2006
I can see why David loves this trick, it's really a gem, so simple and easy to do and so effective. I've seen similar effects like this such as Astral Projection by Jay Sankey, which I have been using for awhile, and there are many other effects that uses the same principle. But Strange Traveler tops them all because one card actually disappears, and appear in the spectators hand, you can actually count the cards to see the difference. Also they give you several versions including one where you can start and end clean.

Blaine's favorite, can now be yours.

Awesome Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 22nd, 2006
This trick is so great! This trick will fool even the people who always tell you, "I know how you did that". It actually silences people when they realize their card has gone from the table to their hands... Really easy to perfom and resets quickly... This is a must have!

Best Gimmicked Cards Ever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 31st, 2006
Strange Travelers is one of my favorit effect so far. It's the first time I really like Gimmicked Cards. I own all the gaff cards from ellusionist & I can tell that it is nothing compare to this one. It really is a real "Gem" like some people said. I've been performing with cards since High School & I never really like gimmicked cards but this one is absolutly different... It feels more natural & more convenient. It's really easy to learn & can be master within a few hours. I've perform the effect for a group of person last evening in a bar & I had a lot of reactions. It's such a powerful trick. Stigmata from Wayne Houchin & Strange Travelers will be 2 effects that I know I can count on for great reactions. Highly recommanded! A+++

Best trick I ever did buy! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 28th, 2006
Strange travelers is bye far one of the most unique and amazingly cleaver tricks to come from our moderm society of magic. It infuses Mystery with showmanship and Amazment with disbelief. These things when out together creat one hell of an effect and one that will leave your spectators Dumbfounded. This incredabel trick comes presented beatifully with high quality glossy instruction manual and a small black wallet containing all you need to wow. These things plus more make this effect one of the best presented trick that i've ever come across within my 10 years of magic. This trick also comes with tips all the way through, Helping you with possible problems that may occure. This also comes with two different ways to perform this trick, With a deck/ without a deck, Standing/ not standing, Start clean / end clean....etc, You can imagine the amout of work goneintothis onetrick alone, It even has fully illustrated instrustions for making a gimmicked card box! Now thats class. I felt like a royal magician when i recieved this trick and with the reactions im getting with it, Ill be known as a royal forever. An Ace trick and a definate 10/10 from me. Buytoday, Don't delay!
