In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!
XPAND is a handmade mechanical card gimmick that allows you to perform a special effects miracle with a SIGNED card. The effect starts out with a spectator selecting and signing a card so far in their mind nothing unusual. Then things get very weird and the spectator soon realizes that this is not the typical “pick a card” “find a card” trick. With THEIR SIGNED CARD in full view the entire time, they witness something impossible. YOU VISUALLY SHRINK THEIR CARD. After you have changed the physical properties of their SIGNED CARD you then restore the card to the original signed condition and hand it out for immediate examination.
That’s just the start of what’s possible with the XPAND gimmick. Originally Xpand was released as a single effect with only one main application and only one instructional DVD. Now Paper Crane has teamed up with magician Justin Miller who has added over an hour of additional ideas including an application with the cut and restored card plot on a second bonus DVD. Now Xpand is an even better value when you get this amazing gimmick and 2 DVDs for only 24.95.

This effect was just so-so for me. If the spectator is too close, they will likely see the gimmick. If they are too far, they may not really appreciate the effect. This effect really invites close scrutiny and because of that, they may see the gimmick. However, I did like one of the bonus ideas that uses the gimmick, but could be better done with a simpler gimmick. It's not a bad trick, just not so strong in my opinion. I really prefer effects where you can have more fun with people. One I really like is the cardiologist deck by Tomas Medina. This card effect allows you to really interract with people and lends itself to a lot of fun. It was ok, but I wouldn't recommend it.

It's a really cool method but a little angle sensitive but not too much and can be easily hidden so when I perform it I use another gimmick along with it to ditch it and other than that it is an awesome two DVD set with extra ideas and tips

Got the trick after watching a great demo, and well learned it., tried it out. meh. I don't get it. I mean the trick is ok. but to be honest I rather to a color change.
It just was a real disappointment. I mean I rather have received an apology letter taped to a playing card. Seriously, great concept, but I dunno it just screams "trick card". Wish I could return it. But instead I use it to hold up and level my coffee table.

When I first saw the trailer for this some time ago, I was completely baffled. The distortion illusion really messed with my mind big time. Today I was so excited to receive my package I opened it at the post office just to see the gimmick alone. Brandon and Chris could have done much better with the teaching on the DVD. With a little bit of practice with beginning I was able to perfected it and now I enjoy practicing with the gimmick by myself and I can't wait to perform it. Overall very Brandon and Chris.

Xpand - What a worker this is! Report this review

Top VFM! the xpand gimmick is a very clever idea, but the bonus disk contains one of the best cut and restored tricks I have ever used, it is well worth the full cost of this item on its own. What a worker this is!
