We all LOVE the type of magic tricks where the hardest thing about performing them is keeping that SMUG look off our faces. In other words, the exact OPPOSITE of nervousness ;)

Colossal Blizzard is the reason I've been feeling smug lately. The setup is done before my spectators even realize a trick has started, then the rest of the performance feels like a 100mph sled-ride down Mount Everest.

Created by professional card magician Anthony Miller, Colossal Blizzard combines two of the most devious principals in magic to produce a walk-around masterpiece. Instant reset and NO need for tables means you can DEPEND on Colossal Blizzard for your paid gigs.

One card is NAMED, removed from the pack and given to your spectator. Seems pretty mundane so far, until you dump about 51 TON AVALANCHE on their brain by showing the entire deck is BLANK. The best part? There are no deck switches, and only 52 cards are ever used. Didn't I remind you to keep that smug look off your face??

We're proud to offer you professional caliber, PRACTICAL magic tricks like Colossal Blizzard but we also know it's not perfect for everyone. If you have any questions about whether CB is right for your next show or gig, email magician@penguinmagic.com and you'll get a fast reply from a professional magician on our team.

And seriously - while you're waiting for your package to arrive, work on keeping a straight face!

Colossal Blizzard Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Effect- A card is selected through a process and taken out of the deck. All of the other cards are shown to be blank except for their thought of card.
I will have to admit that I was a slight bit disappointed with the method. With that said, it still fooled me. This uses a very old principle that you already know (some may be scared to use it), but applied and dressed up in a way that not many people would pick up on, even a few magicians. It isn't as clean as the ad makes it sound, but it still appears super fair to the spectator and looks legit to them. It's extremely easy to perform, but you can't have anyone behind you which may be a problem in some cases, but easily managed.
The DVD is very well produced and attractive. No complaints. Oz Pearlman is a great teacher and lets you in on the subtleties that make this more convincing to the spectators. There are 2 variations taught which are the basic handling and the advanced handling by Luke Jermay. I saw flaws in both so I combined them both so that they made more sense (you had to remove cards which was a drag) and eliminated a lot of procedure. There are also a ton of performances throughout the DVD and while I applaud the effort, Oz is a very bad performer. A problem with DVDs and younger magicians is that they'll copy the performers directly. Oz is very technically skilled, but his acting and presentation is weak in my opinion.
Overall, this is a solid product and I recommend it.

Decent. Report this review

This is pretty amazing, and from a spectator's point of view it's mindboggling. So long as you don't mind carrying around a gimmicked deck in your pocket then there's no reason you shouldn't go for this!

The tuition is clear and very detailed, although ultimately the effect is pretty easy to do which is great because it lets you focus on performance!

There is just no explanation for spectators Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 11th, 2010
This is a really strong trick. Its not so good walk around but if you are doing a show it really hits them between the eyes. A tip is to do a trick with a normal pack of cards first. Have the cards be shuffled by the spectator. Then do something else like spongeballs. Come out with this trick and nail em. Its really easy to learn and theres not that much practice. I got this as a bonus from penguin and was really surprised about how amazing it is. I would definitely buy this.

Not bad Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 7th, 2009
This is a great effect, but make sure you choose your audience wisely, i tried it on two persons today and they wanted to take the deck and go thru it themselves, not good..
technique is good and it plays big, im not sure if ill add it to my act simply because i dont see it being a good opener, and you can only do that one trick with the deck.
other than that i think ill keep trying it on ramdom people and see how it goes..
overall i cant complain, Oz is a great teacher and it wasnt expensive..

Very nice Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 24th, 2008
Very nice idea but I loved the original blizzard more. You can`t pass out for examination.
I don't love the handling.

Pretty good Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 7th, 2008
Its a great concept, one of the greatest concepts in card magic - a spectator names a card and it is the only card in the deck that appears different from all the others.

Sound familiar?

If you want the most direct, hard hitting version of this concept just stick with the invisible deck.

This is a great trick, but I would never use this AND the invisible deck in the same routine. And I would never replace this trick with the invisible deck because this effect isn't near as direct and straight forward as the invisible deck.

It's not that this is a bad effect, its just that there is another effect out there that uses the same concept, but plays much stronger.

Worth Getting If You Have $$$ Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 5th, 2009
This a 20 dollar trick. If you have 20 dollars, and are looking for an effect like this than you should definitely get it.

PROS
-great effect
-great teaching
-easy to do
-deck can be shuffled (YES, I always do tricks with normal cards, take out my sponges, then come out with my blizzard deck, shuffle it, and then start).
- Advanced handling thats not that advanced, just a bit different

Cons
-Although the cards are real they cannot be examined (most can, but you cant hand the deck out)
-Have to carry it around only for one trick

GET IT IF YOU HAVE MONEY ITS GREAT

Not For Me Report this review

Oz does a Good job Performing & Teaching. I wish you had put the whole performance on the Video. I would have known not to buy. I'm sticking with the Original Blizzard. On the bright side... I only lost $4.95! For that price... it was worth trying!

Love It ! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 7th, 2008
Great trick. Love the fact that there's no switches / hard sleight of hand.....

It is what it says....self working.

Just learn the routine.....

Not a bad effect! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 7th, 2008
As always Oz is a great teacher, and the performance of the effect is extremely well done. After seeing the full performance with Oz's handling I was impressed with this effect. It was nicely executed and in the spectators mind I could see how they would be completely fooled.

The handling is very easy and very simple. Obviously you cannot do this with a borrowed deck, and a small amount of setup is required. But even for walk around, keeping a spare deck for this effect in your pocket and giving it a hearty shuffle whilst introducing the effect is enough to make the setup unnoticable.

I should also note that personally, I would not perform this completely surrounded. You have to be really careful of angles, but I expected as much.

All in all not a bad effect with only a few minor limitations. I won't use it often, and won't add it into my immediate repertoire but I will use and have a lot of fun with it. Definitely worth the purchase for a look!
