A signed card is placed into the center of the deck. With a snap of the magician's fingers the card travels to the top of the deck.

The Ambitious Card is one of those rare things in magic - a "perfect" effect. It is quick and easy to understand, yet has variations limited only by your imagination. The performance transcends all language barriers and can be as simple or as complicated as you wish. Freestyle routining makes this effect a little like playing jazz - once you have mastered the basic theme, you can weave in and out of it to create a unique and personalized rendition for each performance.

Here, you have the chance to witness the live performance of Daryl�s entire gold medal-winning F.I.S.M. routine. Daryl also demonstrates and explains dozens of additional tips and subtleties he has created and refined over many years to allow you to be the best you can be! And, for the first time ever, Daryl reveals the real work on the most amazing finale to this routine - Daryl�s Ultimate Ambition Improved!

Hi! This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.

Daryl's Ambitious Card DVD is a must have for all card workers! ADD TO CART NOW! Finish this review after.

I learned Daryl's Ambitious Card from his book, Ambitious Card Omnibus, many many years ago, and it continues to be a staple in my magic performances to this day. The effect is classic, killer, and amazing. This video is exactly like the book, with the benefit of being able to see and enjoy the trick and its many fantastic qualities for yourself.

There are many phases you can put into an ambitious card routine, and you are going to learn a lot here. I give it 4 stars because I'm always a little wary about videos. When I learn this from the book, I was able to easily put my own patter and style into it, because honestly I had no other choice. With video, it's harder because of the temptation to mirror exactly what you see (because Daryl does it so good). You have to actually work hard NOT to do exactly the same performance as Daryl with this.

It's a great video and should be purchased. If you are reading this review then you should ADD TO CART right now. You'll love it.

The DEFINITIVE Ambitious Card Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 19th, 2003
As of yet, this is hands down the number one definitive treatise on the subject of the Ambitious Card routine I've ever come across. This was the first magic-related DVD I ever bought and I have used the material found within extensively ever since. Daryl's wonderful and quirky presentation style and textbook-concise explanations are a joy to experience and demonstrate the dichotomy of a very strong personality in magic. Fun to behold and easy to relax with, but meticulously thorough when it comes to the technical aspects of magic. But don't be afraid, listening to Daryl explain magic is like listening to your favorite record. This man was born to do what he does effortlessly. And as for the material, everything on the DVD is A-list material. Aside from teaching you his FISM routine (which is a knockout example of professional routining), you also get literally dozens of other moves and subtlties to incorporate into your own custom-made Ambitious Card routine. Enough to make it as short or as long as you want. Either to break the ice at a restaurant gig, or to close your entire parlor show. Befor this DVD, I regarded the Ambitious Card as a run-of-the-mill card trick, but now I realize it's potential to be a powerhouse reputation-maker!

Just the Best Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 24th, 2003
After watching this DVD I asked myself, why didn't I buy this a year ago? The information on this DVD is priceless and I really like Daryl's style. If you enjoy cards and want to learn miracles, then by all means get this DVD. I consider myself a hobbiest so I loved how easy most of these sleights were to learn. Highest recommendation.
Daryl also is a great example of a likeable magician. If people like you as a person, they will like you even more as a magician.

Everything you need to know about Ambitious Card Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 28th, 2003
I first get to see an Ambitious Card routine performed on David Blaine's programme, and boy was I impressed - especialy the pop-up card effect done as a finale. Even as I get to know the secrets behind some of the moves subsequently, I still went ahead to buy this DVD, and it was worth every penny. Daryl once again delivered much more than I expected. His routine was simply top-notch. Not only did he explain every move behind his award-winning routine (including the finale using rope), he also explain lots of other moves that he did not use, but were commonly employed by other magicians (including the amazing pop-up card effect). And the good thing is - many of these moves are not restricted to just Ambitious Card routine. Once you learn them, you can use them in many other card tricks as well. In conclusion, this video really packs a huge punch!

Great DVD, worth more than the cost. It teaches everything you need to do an ambitious card routine. The routine takes practice, but this DVD helps a whole lot.

This DVD sets a high standard -- for DVDs and for magic. Not only is a full, dynamic routine performed and fully explained, but Daryl goes through lots of other moves that you can use in developing your own routine. I'm new to magic, and this DVD gave me a lot to work on. I have other DVDs, but this is one that has helped me the most.

This DVD in great for beginners thru masters. The routine is amazing and your audience will be astonished. The extra methods explained are a wonderful bonus. If you are serious about card magic, you will eventually purchase this DVD.

This magic takes PRACTICE. Watch Daryl's easy step by step instructions and then practice, practice, practice. Being able to perform this effect is one thing but making it look effortlessly is another. The more you practice, the better it becomes and the greater the reaction from the audience.
