Really Bad Trick from a good idea Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 14th, 2014
SO - get this - the deck they send you. It doesn't work - and if you order it and write in to Penguin they will not refund you.19 of 21 magicians found this helpful.
They said it's up to you to do some work on the deck - but the deck that was sent - had weird gimmicked cards that are not even a part of the trick - for instance there were multiple blank faced cards in my deck and that has nothing to do with the trick. So basically whoever packaged the trick messed up - threw in cards not even part of the trick - so you cannot perform it and will have completely wasted your money.
Kinda not sure what's worse - Penguin is still selling this all the time without correcting the problem or the fact Penguin won't even refund ya.
I offered to send my deck in for a new one and they still said no. Clearly by now they know this trick is junk - was kinda surprised by how bad the experience was with the trick as I have otherwise had good experiences from the site.

Not only is his explanation poor and incomplete (language aside) but the supplied materials are different than what he shows and require additional cards to be added...if this is how he does business, it is the last business he will get from me...I'm p***ed12 of 16 magicians found this helpful.
Included deck cannot perform trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 26th, 2014
I was disappointed to find that the included gimmick deck is insufficient to perform the trick. Note that you must take two cards from another deck in order to have the full set of cards required for this.12 of 17 magicians found this helpful.
The trio itself is nice, but it is unfortunate that you can't perform it without first adding cards from another (which is now incomplete itself). The deck also includes some cards that need to be removed to do the trick. None of this is explained by the DVD or any other documentation.
This could be a great trick if Penguin put a little more effort into packaging it to include the required cards and a few words of explanation.

Whats up with all the bad reviews Report this review

I don't know what's up with all the bad reviews. The trick itself is amazing and so simple to do. They're are so many complaints about extra cards and such, but that's exactly what they are, extra cards. I do find it confusing why they're confusing why people complain about it.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
This trick also comes with an impromptu ver. which is pretty cool
This trick seems pretty over priced, but that being said, this trick has been on the Cool Box twice in a week, so you could get it for much cheaper.
That being said, I love this effect, some work needed on the deck, but nothing to be worried about.
Way Too Complex; Trick Not Complete Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 1st, 2015
If you are going to sell me a trick, make sure it is complete. This trick is missing certain cards which turned me off right away. Second, while I think the trick has a nice patter routine, listen carefully to how Dani presents it......if you are comfortable with that pace, great, otherwise your spectators heads will explode (as did mine) and not enjoy the ending.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.

At the right time and place, this is spectacular. Unlike Paul Curry's iconic red and black color separation, done by the spectator, the DaOrtis color separation can involve the spectator who acdtually mixes up the two piles into blacks and reds but then it is the magician who assembles the two piles and with a time pause and magic gestures or words causes the two mixed up piles to separate into red and black. This is a definitely a 'switch in - switch out' effect but the visual impact is incredible and the magician's very obvious 'doing nothing' adds to the fun. It is easy to do and that allows the performer to put all of her/his attention on the performance and not on making the magic happen.3 of 6 magicians found this helpful.
It's OK , not great. Report this review

Trick is exactly the way I thought it would be but I got this on sale and I needed the deck. But what the hell are these people talking about that deck is not complete or adding extra cards????? I'm surprised these people can't even understand a simple trick and they are calling penguin bad. I have ordered so much stuff from them, never had a bad experience. There's no way these people writing these bad comments are professional magicians.
