"The perfect open prediction..."

Do you believe in fate or destiny?

You remove an envelope from your pocket. It is sealed. There are no secret compartments or hidden flaps. You explain that inside this envelope, there is one prediction. One card, sealed. No matter what the spectator says or does, nothing can change the outcome. It is fate. It is determined.

You give the spectator a deck of cards. They examine. They shuffle.

You are completely sure of your prediction, and to prove it, you tear open the envelope, showing a face down card. You are committed. And to make things even MORE fair, you turn the card over. They see the identity. They see the future.

After they finish shuffling, you ask the spectator to start dealing cards one by one onto your left hand. Whenever they feel like it, they can stop - and deal the NEXT card face down onto your right hand.

When the moment feels right - when intuition strikes - they stop dealing.

They deal the next card face down onto your right hand, leaving just two cards: your exposed prediction, and their face down selection. Suspense builds. How could they POSSIBLY match? They examined the deck. They shuffled the deck. Nevertheless, their card is slowly overturned, and it MATCHES your prediction.

30 minutes of detailed instruction by Andy Nyman: actor, magician, co-writer, director, and producer for Derren Brown. Andy is a man of many talents, and within this DVD, youÂ’ll get a front row seat showing the inner work of his dangerous mind. Everything you need is included, with specific, premium props hand selected by the creator.

This is a HUGE let down. Not at all up to Andy Nymans usual standard (even though the method is the exact same as another effect he released).

They say in the ad copy "premium gimmicks hand picked by the creator"..... This has to be the biggest joke/ lie I've seen in a long time in the magic world. When you see what you get with the DVD you'll be left wondering just what in the hell Andy had to pick out? Laughable.

You know you've bought a bad effect when they decide to blur the gimmick DURING THE EXPLANATION because its so obvious even to a camera lens!?! They try to make the blur look artsy and hip in only the way Theory11 can, this is so the kiddies can save their disappointment until they are standing in front of a mirror.

The worst part of the DVD is when they (for ZERO reasons) bring on "Zack" and his buddy. Completely turns the DVD into a joke and ruins any tinge of credibility it had.

I have a lot of Andy Nymans work, but I'll do some serious research before going near anything the guy puts out again, especially if Theory 11 are involved. It's like he sold out, left his integrity at the door and accepted the cheque.

Wow this trick is so easy to do, I learn it in about 15 minutes and I was ready to perform. This is a quality gimmick that you can use to vanish one card from a deck, and show card one by one that is completly gone . Seriousely, the effect look more clean live that in the video . Awesome :)

Read this review very helpful in your decision making Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 10th, 2014
To begin with the idea of this trick is good but technically speaking after you perform the trick you cannot hand over the card for the spectator to examine. If by all means you do so it would be an epic fail. The reason for the 4 star being that this trick would be great for stage magic where you say you did a prediction an it's in this envelope and that it would be rare that the spectator would want to examine anything. But if do street magic most definitely this would not be ideal because the first time i did it my spectator wanted to see the card but I couldn't give it to her as the trick would fail then. So to conclude, this trick is not clean. Nothing in that envelope and after the trick can be handed out for examination.

Great Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 27th, 2013
I bought this from penguin 4 weeks ago, since then i have literally performed it over 45 times, to paying audiences , and this has got to be one of the best close up mentalist tricks for walk-around that i have in my repertoire.

I understand why it might have gotten a bad review about the gimmick, it is a gimmick that we all probably have had at one point and never used it this way, you will be disappointed because you wish you thought of it!

The reset is almost instant you can do it again right after performing it if you want, although i recommend using a different gimmick, you will see what i mean.

Anyway for the real performer who is out there making their living doing walk-around or close up mentalism or even magic, this is great, pure gold, if your just looking for the next best thing because you have some money to spare and it looks cool on camera, please skip this and leave it to the real workers.

3.7 out of 5...rounding up to be polite. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 8th, 2013
I like this effect. I'd love it though if you could comfortably hand out the selection after this effect is performed.

It's a beautiful effect when it all comes together. Random card which clearly comes from another deck of cards is selected as a prediction and the spectator happens to land on the predicted card. Gorgeous. But people love hands on with magic, and I love being able to hand things out. As of now, I'm totally not comfortable handing out the card at the end of the routine, I'm not sure I'll ever be comfortable enough to do it, and I feel that steals some of it's magic.

The method is taught quite well on the DVD. The gimmick is easily put together within a minute max. Reset is available after the trick is performed at the bat of an eye making it great for working the floor.

It's only flaw, that I can't get over, and remove a point from my review for, is that inability to finish as clean as I'd love to be able to.
