As seen on Penn & Teller's FOOL US...

A number of years ago, a thoroughly likeable fellow by the name of MIKE ROSE blew everyone with the BEST card at any number ever seen.

THE GRAIL has COMPLETELY FOOLED many of the BEST minds in magic - even those that you think were practically impossible to fool these days! It has been a consistently TOP seller for many years since then and now it returns...recharged, reloaded and refined to be BETTER than ever before!

But why mess with something that was already so great I hear you ask! Well fear not, the original routine still remains in its brilliant entirety as it is a superb bit of creative and highly-subtle thinking. However IN ADDITION to this, Peter Nardi finally tips the versions of THE GRAIL that he has been using in recent years to fry magicians and lay people even more so! If you are familiar with the effect, imagine now HANDING OUT a small envelope containing a prediction PRIOR TO THE NUMBER BEING NAMED! And ending WITHOUT ever having to touch the prediction again!

Or...are you thinking that a change from your current TOSSED OUT DECK opener may be in order - well then THE GRAIL OPENER is destined to become a new classic for not only opening your show, but bringing up a member of the audience effortlessly for a breathtaking opener that will set the scene for the rest of the show to come.

The Grail Gold Edition now contains the following new material:

The Holy Grail

This is the version of the Grail that Peter Nardi has been performing for over 2 years (this version totally blew David Blaine away when Peter performed it for him).

Imagine handing your spectator a small black envelope which they are instructed to place in their pocket. A packet of cards are introduced and your spectator is asked to name a number between 1-52. Whichever number they name (no force) is the number we go with. The cards are removed from the deck and handed to the Spectator to examine. Once your spectator is happy the deck is normal they count through the cards to their chosen number. The card exactly at their number (not the card before or after) is seen to be lets say the 3 of clubs. Your spectator removes the envelope from his pocket and removes the odd backed card inside, it's the perfect match.

1. Only one envelope
2. Only One Card in the Envelope
    Magician never touches the Card or envelope once removed from the spectators pocket
3. Only one deck used
4. Deck is examined
5. No switching of card or envelope.
6. No Palming, adding or taking anything away
7. Easy to Perform and carry on using the deck for the rest of your set after the effect.

Peter Nardi's Impossible Grail Opener (Stage Version)

If you perform a cabaret or stage act this opener is for you. A great impossible effect to kick off your show and gets you a randomly selected volunteer up on stage to help with your next effect!

Peter Nardi's Two Person Any Card At Any Number?

This is the ideal version to perform for a competition piece, parlour performance or when ever you have a table to perform on. Peter uses this as a sit-down routine when he has a couple to perform to.

Two decks of card are introduced, One red and one blue. One spectator selects a deck and chooses a card sight unseen. The second spectator names a number between 1-52 and deals down to that number in the other deck. Both cards match!

This is a real nailer and really plays big with a fantastic connection/coincidence premise!

Peter Nardi's Impromptu Grail

Now you can perform the great card at any number with your spectators own deck!!!

The Grail Gold Edition comes with the above routines and even more additional ideas - the definitive work on Mike Rose's NOW CLASSIC effect!

Rehearse To Make It The Best Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 27th, 2011
Reading the other reviews, you may think words like "easy" make it an "out of the box" effect. I urge you to practice the effect until it becomes second nature. The method is remarkable in its simplicity, but building the muscle of the mind regarding the mathematics, and rehearsing the hands as far as the "dirty work" is concerned, make it as clean as the demo. This is now my signature card effect and will be yours as well if you put the eagerness to perform aside and put the ample rehearsal time in.

Awsome! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 2nd, 2012
I have to be honest, this is my first review on Penguin I ever did, and normally I don't bother to review any of my purchases (good or bad)... But this one is an exception! It is genius in its simplicity and a guaranteed hit for all magicians alike. I can only recommend to buy this item, as I am sure nobody in their right mind could regret this!

Holy Grail! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 23rd, 2011
This is close to ACAAN as you can get. Okay, it's not any card, but definately at any number. And it's super easy to perform! A great method. The effect is a killer! There is no explanation! Audiences shake their heads in disbelieve! Great!

super... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 27th, 2011
i've owned and have been using this for about 7-8mos now. it has become one of my 'go to' effects. absolutely. i use this as my opener combined with "365" another alakazam fav of mine. i do a husband/wife thing using it. i, to be honest, have never ever felt the need to use the gimmicked version. you can pull this off w/o having to.

i was thinking about getting "think" by shin lim but i think this is way cleaner. if you're a mentalist or a magician you'll love this i guarantee it. i use this EVERY SINGLE TIME i am called on to perform. my list: the grail, cataclysm, casino royal, mental epic slate, white star, celebrity smart ass, heirloom, and close with (my own effects)"top secret not secret."

undoubtedly the best trick I've ever seen Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 1st, 2012
this is by far the cleanest most mind boggling trick on penguin. It is so extremely simple and involes only the very slightest bit of math. there is absolutely no sleight of hand everything you see you will get and definatley worth the price

Powerful Card Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 23rd, 2012
This is it, the one you've been looking for. It has everything, easy to do, audience participation, no fumbling, and absolutely no sleights. You won't believe how easy this effect is. It looks exactly like the demo shows. I've fooled a 35 year IBM member with this effect. You'll learn this in an hour or less. There are no hard math calculations, you use your own bike deck. The original effect is explained, but the improvements are fantastic! Get this A+ effect NOW!

It takes practice Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 10th, 2012
This is a wonderful effect, both clever and mind-boggling for a spectator. It's advertized as requiring no sleight of hand, which isn't true. There is a sleight and it takes practice to get it to be reliable as well as quick. I am still working on it. You also have to be able to do a simple calculation, also quickly. Neither obstacle is a deal-breaker. This effect will go into my repertoire very soon!

Best card at any number I've ever seen Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 17th, 2012
I have tried other card at any number effects, and this is the cleanest handling I've ever tried. There is a moderate learning curve (mostly memorization) but most people I've shown this to said this was by far the most impressive magic they have seen me do.

I perform the variation in which a black envelope is given to the spectator before we start, then a number from 1 to 52 is called out by the spectator. The cards are removed from the box and handed to the spectator, who is asked to look through the cards to make sure they are mixed up. Then ask the spectator to count the cards face up to the number they selected. At the number, that card is set aside. The envelope is opened by the spectator (it has been in their possession the whole time) and the card in the envelope matches the card counted to by the spectator. Mind blowing!

For my magic club competition, I will have red and blue decks. The red deck is fanned by me to show the cards are mixed. A random spectator will freely select a card and place it face down on the table. A second spectator will call out a number, then count with the blue deck, turning each card face up as they count. The selected blue card that is counted to is placed next to the face down red card. The red card is turned over and they match!

Great Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 18th, 2012
So far everytime I have performed this effect it blows people's minds. It says you can have the spectator handle the cards which you can but I don't think it is nesecary unless you do the gimmick part, which I don't. And any number can be named (between 1-52) once you learn how to accomplish on how it works it flys by un-noticed. I highly recommend this effect.
