'The Butterfly Effect' by Dave Forrest.


You fairly display a deck of cards - they appear to be in a completely random order - before giving your spectator two pieces of information: 1. One of the cards in the deck is ‘different from all the rest’. 2. The deck is in a completely random order but for three cards which you have specifically positioned for an experiment; a test of your participants free will! You begin to deal through the deck, face up on the table, asking a spectator to say 'stop' whenever they like. Whichever card they stop on (no force!) is used to arrive at a second card and that card is used to arrive at a third. The entire procedure so far has been completely beyond reproach. Here's where it gets weird...

You ask the spectator to turn over one of the Jokers (both Jokers have been on full view throughout.) It correctly predicts the suit and value of the third card! You total the value of all three cards. The spectator turns over the other Joker - it accurately predicts the total! Finally, reminding your spectator of the card that is ‘different from all the rest’, the card they first stopped you on is turned over to reveal the words 'STOP HERE' in big black bold letters!

Very clever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 7th, 2013
I haven't set this effect up yet. But it's really clever and, I think, almost impossible for them to reverse engineer. And three climaxes - each one more impossible than the last. I love it.

Cleaver as heck Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 12th, 2014
I love this item. It leaves a lot of room for presentation to be original. It's truly great and the only deck you need to carry with you if you combine it with "Phantom" by Spidey. You can't go wrong with that trick immediately following this one.

I can't say more without giving too much away but it's the first trick that I perform wit a deck of cards and the only one that I have with me at all times.

This is an amazing effect! I have the set up version read to go at all times!
There is some very clever thinking here and its very easy to do. It may be one of the two strongest effects I've purchased so far this year.....$12? WELL WORTH IT!

Have fun!

5 stars and ill explain why Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 7th, 2013
First of all i agree with the previous review from tad in edmonton. I agree 100%. Altho he gave it 4 stars to me personally i feel its a five and ill explain why.

I purchased this effect knowing what most of the method was but even tho i knew 80 % of the method i had 0 idea how to possibly execute the beauty of this trick . its perfect for magic and mentalism combined , you get 3 surprizing moments and they hit hard twice then destroy on the third reveal. And with theset up version there is virtually no moves you have so much freedom on presentation its awesome.

Another note you also learn how to do this with a borrowed shuffled deck. And beleive me when i sayy this . Its almost as killer as the set up version. You still make three killer predictions but i feel the predictions are a little stronger in the set up vesion. Impromptu version however there are two minor sleights you have to execute but these are move that define weather you should quit magic or not they are that easy and they are common knowledge for beginner card magicians. Both methods taught are both workers and im gonna set it up tonight.

I noticed dave forrest seems to actually care about the quality of his teaching and the magic. He seems to really respect the viewer aka "us" and he could have priced this wayyy higher. I never heard of dave forrest before and i am very picky with people and dave is instantly likeable. I will be purchasing from him in the future. Make this purchase you wont regret it. And i repeat the impromptu version altho you can carry predictions with you its not necessary because you can do it all on the spot unprepared.

I happen to be extremely skilled in performance with magic and mentalism and i f**kin love this effect. Much respect dave this is going into my future shows and performances.
