Sleeping Queen by Dan Hauss (Instant Download) Dan Hauss has created an eerie card illusion that literally brings your magic to life.
Digital: Download INSTANTLY.
Dan Hauss, the creator of Flow, has created an eerie card illusion that literally brings your magic to life.
In this effect the spectator is shown a queen of spades that can be thoroughly examined. She is asked to place her hand over the queen and imagine her going to sleep. When she removes her hand, seconds later, the queen is sleeping! The magician waves his hand over the deck and the queen begins to wake up from her sleep. This happens slowly and the spectator sees the eyes gradually open. At the end of the effect the spectator can keep the card as a souvenir.
***An extra item is required to perform Sleeping Queen that is not included with the Download.***
Dan has also decided to include two effects with packs of gum, Rewrapped and Gum Through Wrapper. Both of these effects are visual, practical, easy to perform and have been in Hauss's working repertoire for years.

this effect is great for street magic. I wouldn't do this in a walk around setting like a fair or a restaurant. but, an all around good effect.
IMPRACTICAL :( Report this review

I tought it was a good trick for its price at first, but as I live in Europe, the type of gums that were shown on the DVD doesn't exist here! The package comes with 3 tricks but I can only do one! Still, the trick "Sleeping Queen" is very impractical and you need to buy a special pen for this effect. You have to prepare the trick 30 minutes previously. If you forget it, you ruin a card! X(
DON'T BUY IT!!!

This entire package I got for less than 5 bucks, so I can't complain and it's defiantly worth the price! But for 30 bucks, nope, not even close! Here is my saying for the tricks:
Sleeping Queen PROS:
-Easy to do!
-Can be setup within a minute!
-No hard sleights or difficult changes!
-Can be inspected at the beginning and at the end.
Sleeping Queen Cons:
-The prop needed to find to make the gimmick is not very easy to find t local craft stores.
-Not very practical, why would you make a queen sleep anyways?
OVERALL FOR SLEEPING QUEEN: 4.5/5
ReWrapped Gum Pros:
-The gimmick is EXTREMELY CLEVER!
-No one will ever figure out how it works.
-EASY TO DO!
-You need 2 packs of gum for only 1 PERFORMANCE!
-The setup is like 20 minutes for only a 1 minute trick.
-Angles aren't very good
OVERALL FOR REWRAPPED: 2.5/5
Gum Thru Wrapper Pros:
-Strait to the point
-The ditch is clever!
-Angles aren't bad
Gum Thru Wrapper Cons:
-May not work every time (it depends on you)
OVERALL FOR GUM THRU WRAPPER: 4.25/5
OVERALL RATING FOR EVERYTHING:
Dan Hauss Sleeping Queen: 3.75/5 (rounds to a four)
Final Comments: You should buy it if it's on sale on blizzard for $4.95 but not for the actual price.
neat idea, don't use it much though Report this review

I think it's cool. Don't perform this on people who pay super close attention to detail or they will probably see something suspicious. What's cool is you can set this trick up and leave it in your deck. it's a gimmick that goes unnoticed until you bring attention to it.
Only downside is you have a time frame to perform this in. The video suggests 2 hours but I've found you can still do it up to 4 hrs and it's still ok. If you leave it on for extended periods of time, then it gets more difficult to perform. Alternatively, you could carry around the 'special' pen with you but I find that it's impractical to carry with you just for one trick.

One extra trick with cards, but the whole package is value for money.
Nice Idea Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 19th, 2014
The idea behind the trick is excellent and the video goes into great detail. You do need an extra item but it is not expensive however they are not that easy to get hold of if you live in the UK as I found out but soon found one on Amazon. Apart from that I love the trick and am working to fit it into a repertoire.
good but... Report this review

this trick is good. but, I would not use it as a opener to card tricks. if your doing a show or on the street. i would do something else then do a D.S. with Sleeping Queen. but, to be truthful i would only use this to get a wow that is nice kind of a laugh. Sorry... I like the Trick. but for me i wouldn't use this a lot.
