Self Guided Tour by Rick Lax (Instant Download) A spectator holds a mixed-up stack of 8 postcards. She names one at random and then deals to it as if by fate.

It’s a card trick that’s not about the cards. It’s about the person—your spectator. It’s about her personality, her desires. So maybe it’s more than a card trick…

You can perform Self-Guided Tour with postcards, tarot cards, photographs, or playing cards. Whatever fits your personality and style. I use postcards from the Louvre, and my presentation goes like this:

“I believe that if you were to go to a museum and walk around, from room to room, randomly, you’d end up at the painting you’re SUPPOSED to see. As if by fate. And I’m going to prove it to you right now.”

I show the eight paintings one at a time, and then I mix them up. I hand the stack to the spectator and ask her this:

“When I showed you those eight paintings, did you click with any of them?”

The spectator names one and I ask her to remove seven of the postcards using the down/under shuffle described at the start of the trick. She does this…and she ends up with one postcard (and one postcard alone). She turns it over. It’s the painting she wanted. As if by fate.

Self-Guided Tour is a piece of strong magic. It’s not easy, but it’s worth the work. Because once you’ve got the trick mastered, you won’t just fool people, you’ll connect with them.

TIP: Self-Guided Tour uses sleight-of-hand and memory work. As I perform it, it’s not an easy trick. Though, easier versions are taught on the download.

Excellent effect. Worth the price. Very versatile: can be performed with anything from postcards to trading cards to ANYTHING, cd's, etc.

If you like the way it appears in the demo, you'll enjoy performing this effect. It requires a bit of work to prepare yourself for the effect, but it's completely worth it. The download is very thorough. Rick is very clear. Don't hesitate. He's churning out killer material for us.

Requires some memorisation but effect is awesome Report this review

This trick requires some memorisation, but with some focus, can be done. This trick does not need to be done with post cards as Mr Lax offers alternatives such as Tarot Cards or playing cards. I happen to have a board game with pictures on it called Dix-it which I use. Have also used the effect with the cards from Dan & Daves Ultimate Deck as well. Awesome potential with other props.
