Color Monte The most popular packet card trick of all time. Huge Reactions! Highly Recommended.
List price:$7.00
Price: $6.00
You save: $1.00 (14%)
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!

Show three cards; one with a blue spot and two with a red spot. Explain that this is a game for gambling, and whoever finds the blue spot wins a dollar, but if that person is wrong, he must forfeit a dollar. Then explain that you were once taken by this game, and show how you were taken, losing three dollars because every time you thought you picked the blue card, it was red. So, you accused the man of not even having a blue card. He showed the bottom card as blue, so you lost another dollar! So, you said that if it was the card on the bottom, it couldn't be the one on top, but again, you lost another dollar! It is then showed as the center card as well, and by then, there's been six dollars lost. So, you said that you thought he was using more than three cards, but were proven wrong and lost another dollar. So, the gambler gave you another chance, double or nothing. He showed you that one card was red, another as blue, and all you had to do was name the color of the third card. Red, right? Wrong again! It's not red, nor is it anything anyone would expect!

What? What? That’s amazing!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Hey Y’all,

Story: Over Christmas I participated in a Christmas talent show. I started with some easy tricks, then worked up to hard hitting tricks. The audience was hanging on every word. Towards the end of my routine I did some mental tricks, read minds and the like. Then, after my closer, I remembered that I hadn’t done the Color Monte. I did it and everyone was floored.

After the party, everyone kept asking me to repeat tricks (though I did not). The color Monte was the one they talked about the most. That’s right, even more than the ones with back-breaking slight of hand.

Pros:
1. Awesome reactions
2. Easy to learn. You can master it in a few hours if you know the basic ‘move.’ The move is a staple
3. Carry it everywhere. Everyone loves it so I carry it around everywhere in my wallet. You won’t regret it
4. You can repeat it once (though not recommended, you can repeat it-see Con 2)

Cons:

1. Keep the cards clean. My cards have become dirty on one side making it easy for a very apt spectator to find out the secret. Thankfully, I haven’t been caught yet. Maybe its just my cards…

2. People are often caught up in the story so much that they feel like it happened too quickly

On a hard-hitting scale of 1-5 this gets a 4. That’s saying a lot from a critic like me. In conclusion: I love it! If you haven’t purchased it, do so, even if you aren’t into cards.

The ultimate packet trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I have been performing color monte as my close up opener for over 20 year. I love that fact that you end clean and can hand out the cards. While it does take some simple sleights, its well worth the practice. By performing this first and being able to hand out the cards, it takes the heat off of other packet tricks where you can't. If you don't own it, get it NOW!

Good easy close up trick Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 25th, 2008
This trick is good because everything is examinable and it is so easy. If you are a beginner this is your first monte to learn, and teaches some key sleights to start your magic career.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC MAGIC Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I use this whenever I am in a situation that I am walking around. It works perfect for situations when you don't have a lot of time, but you want something that'll blow the audience away. Price can't be beat and the video shows the exact handling that makes this so effective.

Love this trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I have used this trick for years and it never fails to please. My primary shows are for children but after the show the adults gather and I get this trick out as an intro to a few adult tricks. The slights are easy to do no knuckle busting and the patter flows easly off the lips. If you are transitioning to a few gambling type tricks. This is a fun light hearted aproach. Freindly to women and children. Very powerfull and easy to do. An instant reset. Over all I Highly recomend this trick. Michel Skinners Ultimate Monte is a great second trick to follow this.

Thanks Magic Tad

I love this easy, easily carried trick. Once the handling and patter are down, this is a good trick to keep on you and ready to present at anytime.
