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 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!

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!

Colossal Blizzard Report this review

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.

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.

Great Report this review

Today I got the best reaction you could ever get with this easy knock um dead effect. It is so simple and you may be disappointed at first, but it can be a killer. The only problem is that when I heard there was no gimmick, I though that meant that everything was explainable at the end, which is not the case. This is still worth 5 stars. Add to Cart.

Nice card effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2013
Man this trick is way to cool. I've done it many time since I brought it. This trick is a killer trick for laymen and for magicians that are not aware of the method, as I was stomp and had to have it in my everyday set up. all I can say is if you love the invisible deck this takes it to a different level. So get it and see what I mean. Magic Sam Chicago.

Right good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 17th, 2013
This is a good routine. The only drawback is that deck isn't clean, like other variations on the theme. But it avoids a switch which is a plus.

Its kinda cool. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 17th, 2013
I liked it a lot, and for some people, this trick would be just crazy awesome. but for me, i don't know, i feel like i'll never use it. thats not to say the method and stuff isn't cool. the dvd is well made and the teaching is great, i really like oz pearlman i think he does great stuff. but for me, this trick isn't what i'd perform all that much. If you don't mind carrying around another deck then this trick is perfect, but for me, i like one deck, doing all my tricks from that deck.

Killer Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 9th, 2013
I have had Colossal Blizzard for a couple weeks now and have performed it for several friends and family members. The effect itself is awesome and gets great reactions. I wouldn't worry about the "gimmick" being seen or someone asking to look at your cards because of the way the effect is presented. I did have one person ask to see the cards, but just don't see this happening too often in a "real" performance. I wish it came with the gimmick too, but the purchase of the gimmick is not too pricy for the killer reactions you will get.

Awesome Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 30th, 2013
I got this as a cool box deal. The effect itself is awesome! I just received it yesterday and have only tried it out on family and friends, but got some great reactions. This is an effect that I can definitely add to my set as a closer. I gave it 4 stars because you do have to purchase an extra item which I thought should have been included with the effect. The extra item should only cost an extra 3-5 bucks, so it's not a huge deal.
