Best Penguin purchase I've ever made Report this review

This trick blows people away and it is super easy to learn and perform.
I modified the trick slightly so you can do it completely surrounded and it requires no practice whatsoever (ok, maybe a couple of minutes).
The card box is not modified and you don't need a card clip or sleeve.
Nobody has guessed how I do it. Nobody has seen anything like it before. Everyone is amazed.
Amazing! Report this review

This takes little practice but plays big! It's like a better version of the invisible deck. I highly recommend to all magicians!
Better than Invisible Deck Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 14th, 2015
ODD is reminiscent of the Invisible Deck (ID), and both tricks have a strong impact. However, I prefer ODD for strolling purposes for three reasons. First, ODD uses 52 perfectly ordinary cards. It’s true that there’s something “ODD” about the deck and it can’t be handed out for inspection. However, the individual cards are quite normal so that you can slowly thumb through them and allow the spectator to see all their faces. The ID doesn’t look nearly so normal and, in close-up situations, spectators sometimes notice its peculiarities.
Second, I think the effect of ODD is more magical, or at least more inexplicable, than the effect of the IV. In the IV, the selected card flips over. Spectators find this outcome impressive but not bewildering – they imagine that the magician somehow turned over the card. In ODD, however, a red-backed card appears in a blue deck. This seems much harder to explain than a flipped-over card.
The third reason I prefer ODD is that it is easy to make. Two ODD decks can be assembled from two ordinary bicycle decks (and no other materials) in a matter of about ten minutes.
ODD is fairly easy to do – about 3 on a 1 to 10 scale. Angle problems are minimal. Marcus Eddie is a great teacher, although I suggest that you ignore his lesson on how to construct a special cardboard card case for ODD. If you use a metal or leather card case and keep the deck face-up during the first part of the trick, you don’t have to worry about matching the color of the card case and the deck. Otherwise, I highly recommend this trick.
A very clever trick Report this review

Marcus does a nice job explaining this illusion in full.
I thought I knew what he was doing but nope: he got me. I like this because the card is completely examinable. At the end you could sign the card after the illusion and give it away if you like.
It's clean and fast and good for table hopping because as you move from table to table, people will hear the 'others' and pick a different card. And their card is the 'Odd' card.
it's worth it.

I've known Marcus for around 15 years and watched him grow in skill and performance. I even own a few of his earlier tricks. Just as I bought this trick I figured it out. However his handling is clean and neat. His carrier of the trick is really good idea. I would highly recommend it. Like other tricks once you have finished this trick you need to switch decks if you want to do another trick.
For under ten dollars you get a outstanding trick that you can afford.

I am not a huge fan of this guys work, But I decided to give him another chance, and still not a big fan.
Im not sure what all the hype is about this trick, there is a couple of decks out there that do the same job, for half the work. In my opinion not worth it.

They say the genius is the one who notices the obvious which seems to elude the masses. That definitely appears to be the case here. When you learn the method you will instantly think to yourself "DUH!!!" (for lack of a more fitting term).
I've now performed this hundreds of times and often close with it receiving a room full of applause. I will incorporate three spectators. Each writes down their choice on a piece of paper so nobody else shares with one another until the time is right and nobody is influenced by another's choice.
1st spec: secretly writes a value A-K
2nd spec: secretly writes a suit
3rd spec: chooses either red or blue
Also, this way the color of the box is less of a factor or memory for that matter as we are not simply saying "here think of a card you gotta see this", but rather building a routine and focusing all attention on THEIR decisions and THEIR predictions. But for those who find it an issue I offer this:
I tried using a "neutral" color (white) box for awhile, until I realized that I was the only one who ever remembered what color the box was. Everyone else's minds were on the trick and experiencing the effect. I take the box out, pour out the cards and spread them showing there are no duplicates, and put the box away. They unfold their papers and together come up with one card and one color as a COLLECTIVE. All the attention and memories fall to the spectators. I've never once had anybody ask me about the box being a white box and if they didn't notice the unique box, then they most definitely would not notice the Blue or Red, so I've stopped being concerned with that long ago.
Ok, getting off topic. The point is this a a great trick with an ingenious method. The only limitation is your imagination and performance.

My thinking with this trick was a routine that I had looked at doing with that old favourite The In%$#&^le deck.
If you have that deck you will know the basic idea involved here, though Marcus"s working is completely different.
That said the trick is basic to perform, you have to watch your handling so specs dont get a glimpse of anything, the only angles to watch that I could think of are if you have
people looking up at your hands from underneath.
I you are looking for a quick trick, quick to learn, and quick to do, great for beginners, get it.
The reason for 3 stars would have given 4 is that you will need a couple of other things to make the trick work, and most people will know what you need, and probably have a couple of of those around the place, if not extra expense.
All in all well done Marcus
