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 :)

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.

The trick is very powerful. However, the first one I received I returned since the glue machine
didn't dispense the glue. Also the glue sticks to the inside of the envelope making the trick
somewhat cumbersome. Overall, a nice illusion.

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
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.

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.

First off there is already a trick that has been done by Peter Nardi if I spelled that right. So
this is a rip off in more than one way. Too bad I cannot get a refund.don't waste your money. It's
something that cannot be handed out in the end.

Other the the gimmicking tool being a bit difficult to work consistently, the effect plays quite
powerfully. May be the finest ACAAN on the market given the fact the spectator is the sole person to
shuffle and deal the cards. Often leaves spectators speechless. Strong effect for virtually all

Pure amazement a new consent of magic that I truly recommend. At first when u receive the trick it
seems like you will have no success with the trick but after a good long time of practice the trick
just feels right, like u can put a lot of confidence into it. It is a fabulous trick that has always
amazed. WELL WORTH $20.00!!!
