Created by Kenton Knepper, Kolossal Killer is an easy effect that you can carry around with you. After having them name their card, you can easily prove that you have correctly read their mind when you pull out a single card from your (ungaffed) wallet.Watch the spectator gasp in amazement!

All of the information on handling, routines, and explanations by Kenton himself are included in this manuscript. With a bit of practice, you can easily be performing this gem the same day you get it.

Not Huge Reactions Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 25th, 2012
This trick is a good trick in that it is pretty easy to do and not expensive to put together—you probably have everything you need already at home. However, I have not been able to get huge reactions with it. It could be that I am not presenting it well, but I have followed the presentation instructions closely, and even experimented a little with presentation. People seem confused when the card is of by one. It gets a little stronger reaction when you are dead on with producing the card they name, but, that is just the opposite of what the instructions indicate will happen. It’s ot a bad trick overall, just not a huge reaction getter.

Classic effect Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 6th, 2010
Anyone who does mentalism with cards needs to be familiar with this. It really is a classic. Easy to do, very quick and direct, and it can get great reactions.

The downsides: you can't show the wallet empty; the trick does take up some wallet space; once in a while, an overly skeptical spectator will see right through the "out" that usually ends the effect. Even so, this is something you really ought to be using at least once in a while, because it's just so easy to get a big reaction.

There are also quite a few updates and variations to this effect that are worth knowing about. John Archer does a great version of this... very fun to watch, but he's probably the only one who could pull it off. Bang On is a similar effect, except you're always 100% correct. But honestly, it's so much more cumbersome, it doesn't seem worth it. Heirloom is the same effect that adds a backstory to stretch this out into more of a performance routine. Pocket Space is similar in idea, but different in execution, while taking up less wallet space and always giving you a direct hit.

As you can see, this effect has inspired many others... but this is the effect that started it all, and for that reason alone, it's definitely worth having.

Killer Effect Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 5th, 2010
Kolossal Killer is an incredible effect. It is so simple yet so effective, You ask a spectator to think of any card they want (no force). You pull out your wallet and reach inside and pull out the exact card they are thinking of.

Because of how it works, you might get the card wrong but there is a built in fail-safe in which even if you get the card wrong, you are still right! Once you get the trick you will know what I mean.

The only downside if that if your wallet is already filled with debit/credit cards, IDs, gift cards, etc, then it kinda stinks to have to add more cards, but if you don't mind having some extras then this is an amazing trick. I used this one a lot when I first started out and it's always gotten me great reactions.

On the Spot Mentalism Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Kolossal Killer is a concept by Kenton Knepper that allows you to perform amazing mentalism at a moments notice. Using his concept, you wallet becomes an invisible deck. The spectator can name any card (almost) and within a second or two, pull that card from your wallet. A special wallet can be purchased to facilitate this effect but most wallets will work.

Like all mentalism, this is 4 parts presentation and 1 part secret. With a good presentation this effect will freak em out. The booklet provides a lot of detail on the concept and provides several routine ideas. More routine ideas can be purchased. If you like Kenton Knepper you probably already have this. If you don't know who Kenton is, you're in for a real treat. This will be the one trick you walk around with at all times!

THIS IS COOL! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 25th, 2010

I recently got in to mentalism,and say a trick called BANG ON. Which also does almost the same effect but the card is in a envelope. That trick was $100+..
so i decided to look for other similar effects and found this Kolossal Killer.
ITS REALLY A KILLER!!! The nature of this trick is that you wont always get the right card,but because when you don't get the "right" card there is a twist in the effect that will bring the trick to a even stronger level that will totally FRY your spectator.

1)This trick can be done surrounded
3)Its a trick that your spectator will always remember.
4)Do it anywhere and anytime.


For this price,this might be the best trick you can get for card mentalism in magic...

Finally and most importantly ..

Awesome Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 1st, 2007
This is an awesome effect. There is no force on the card they pick. It is a completely free choice. I also love this because you can carry it around with you everywhere. Once you are set up once, you are set-up forever, as the reset is just putting the card back in your wallet. Very Small price for one of my favorite effects ever.

-Instant reset
-Seems impossible
-Very easy, takes little time to get good at it
-You can carry it with you everywhere you go
-You can use this wallet as your everyday wallet.
-No gimmicks
-Wallet is ungaffed
-Can be used as an "out" if you mess up another card trick.
-No sleight of hand; you clearly and plainly take only one card out.
-Good Price
-No palming
-Includes an extra routine called "Truly Invisible"
-Wallet is not "stuffed" with cards; it is thin.

-Wallet cannot be examined, but people probably won't ask to
-Wallet needs to be specific kind, but most should work
-You need a wallet
-Possibility of figuring it out (very small possibility, though)
-Booklet is staplebound
