Happy Travels by Rick Lax (Instant Download) A chosen card JUMPS from pocket to pocket. NO PALMING! DOWNLOAD INSTANTLY. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Price: $9.95
In stock: Download INSTANTLY.

Really easy to do, really hard to figure out. You’ll be fooling people with Happy Travels in no time. The plot is simple…but the method is diabolical.

Here’s how it looks: You remove the deck from the box and show that every card is different. Then you return half the deck to the box.

You turn around and tell your spectator to shuffle the remaining 26 cards and then pick one.

“I want you to put your card back in the pack,” you say, “but not the pack it came from; put it in the middle of the cards in the card box.”

After that’s done, you turn back around.

The box goes in your right pocket and the leftover cards go in your left. A couple seconds later…you not only reveal the spectator’s card by name, you show that IT’S JUMPED FROM POCKET TO POCKET, from the boxed packet to the unboxed packet. You pull out the unboxed stack and spread the cards to prove it.

Thanks to Justin Flom and Jon Armstrong. Credits to Flom, Annemann, and Tannen’s.

WARNING: Justin Flom loves this trick and he’s going to be lecturing on it soon. So if you want to perform it before anyone else, get the download and see what all the fuss is about.

note: I'm not listed as a verified buyer because I bought this download off another magic website, not realizing it was also on Penguin.

This is so easy to perform. It involves NO PALMING or other sleight of hand (I don't consider the natural handling of the cards necessary for the trick as sleight of hand), and very importantly, as many may be wondering -- NO MISDIRECTION!

The catch for a perfect trick that is so easy to perform is that the deck is gimmicked, which really doesn't give anything away (The spectator is handling the cards while your back is turned, and you still have nothing to worry about!) The jump cuts in the video are not significant (remember, this trick has no misdirection to compensate for); if the demo fooled you, I promise this would fool you live.

I only give it four stars because I'm a stickler for impromptu magic, and like to do magic with other people's cards (Bicycle only :)

Is this instructional worth $10? -- Absolutely. Rick also explains WHY this trick is so difficult to debunk. This fools magicians. Grab it.

I was going to finally taper off buying so much new stuff from Penguin, but then I saw this trailer and for under $10 had to go for it. Boy was that a good $10 spent, for a real worker. I got the download last night and set up the trick for myself immediately and it's going right into my walkaround repertoire. Watch the trailer, this is as powerful and easy to do as it looks, you can concentrate nearly all your efforts on your individual presentation. This may be one of the best new card tricks I've seen in a long time, and the result is different every time. Reset in seconds and you're ready to repeat it. Well thought out and well taught, and well worth it.

again simply amazing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 18th, 2013
this effect fits my style and my repertoire very well.

i personally do not mind having gaffed stuff. and if in any way there is a need to give things for examination i somehow find my way so that they feel that it is ok.

this method is very clever and i do believe that even magician can get fooled by this effect.

once again Rick does a great job explaining every thing into details and you can easily just catch up and start performing this effect right away.....

i do recommend this.

not as good as it looks Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 30th, 2013
This trick is a nice trick.
But the video is very misleading.

There is one part in the video, which actually convinced me to buy it, which is very misleading.
The chosen card, the ace of hearts, appears to jump to the other pocket and it is on the bottom of the deck in the video.
This makes the reveal very sweet.
when performing the trick, the card will NOT be on the bottom of the deck but somewhere in the middle.

When the card is on the bottom your audience will know you placed it there. when it is somewhere in the middle the audience will start figuring things out.

The trick is not as powerfull as the video makes it look.

The trick also uses gaffed cards.

Great Buy!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 19th, 2013
It's rare that I buy a trick and feel that I got my money's worth. With Happy Travels, I feel like I got a steal.

The trick is simple to perform and hits hard like many other similar tricks. If you like card tricks like Clutch, Get Sharky and Strange Travelers, then you're going to love performing this trick.

I'm into these homemade type effects that don't require you to run out to the craft store, yet they have major integrity and don't wind up looking like junk. This is great. There is a bit of pocket management which makes it less than perfect, but I really love the effect and look forward to creating my own patter to build this up a bit more. Something about an escape artist- Houdini? Dunno.

This is a great effect that is both easy and a strong fooler. If you can not do this effect after checking out the very clear and awesome teaching of Rick then you have no business in magic. Why not make yourself look like a super magician by adding this to your walkaround. I have been in magic for over 45 years and have seen alote of junk but this is a keeper.

So Easy! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 22nd, 2013
Love this effect! Rick performs a great demo and then takes a lot of time explaining the details of how the trick works. There are no tricky moves, no sleights. Rick shows a very simple way to setup the gimmick and you are rolling in front of other people within the hour.

I showed my wife first, (who happens to know a lot of principles of magic after all these years), and she was amazed. People at my office were literally stunned.

I even felt comfortable adding an additional twist to the ending. I'm really having fun with this one.

Thanks Rick! Great Instant download! Love it!

Considering how easy this effect is to perform, the reactions are off the charts. The time required to complete the necessary gimmicks using household items is minimal. I rehearsed the effect for a couple of hours and went out the next day and performed this effect and secured restaurant gigs at two of the three restaurants in the small resort town that I currently find myself in. My patter which includes the comment "I can feel the magic happening in my pants" always gets a good laugh from both sexes. This effect truly is easy to master and easy to perform and mystifies the audience as to how you pulled it off. Get this effect, you will not regret it.
