This comes with a jumbo deck, but with Dan's routine and handling tips, you can use a poker size if
you wanted to.
Dan uses this same routine for his own shows. It's funny, entertaining and
would work on stage or an intimate parlor show.
Dan covers it all, from setting up the
deck, pacing, audience laugh points, etc.

Dan gives a clear explanation, so that even if someone is not familiar with the invisible deck, he
can easily learn this affect. The advantage to this effect, besides being able to use in parlor or
stage magic, is that one does not even need to think of the math - making it really simple. Dan
gives hints for the handling and for the production bag. I would make the bag using white paper
(like a bakery bag) instead of the brown kraft paper in order to match the white edges of the

Great deck. Plays big, fools everyone. Dan walks you through how to set it up so you don't have to
think when doing the trick. Only downside is that you have to be artsy-crafty and actually make the
bag, unless you somehow find a bag with the exact dimensions needed for the deck. I've only done
the trick without the bag so far, and it gets a great reaction.

This trick is dynamite. First off it's easy to do. It's easy to learn. And it's quite literally one
of the most open ended tricks you can do in all of magic. Harlan does an excellent job of teaching
how to use the deck proficiently and explains different ideas on how to change around your routine.
All and all this trick is the best in magic and I love it.

Dan Harlan has done it again take a great trick and makes it even better with the fine details like
adding a paper bag to produce the cards.I use it in my act.

Not everyone has seen a performance of the invisible deck, and for even those who have . . . this
JUMBO deck catches them all off guard! Dan, of course, does a good job of explaining and the details
of the set up.
The handling is a bit more work than an original deck as you would imagine.
But a little practice. . . When I get asked for a "repeat", I switch to a standard deck. Then when
they toss the invisible back and I pull it out, the only conclusion I can come to is they STOLE my
jumbo deck! Plays for a few more laughs!

I like the Jumbo sized ID because I can perform it on stage.
It's easy to do, it gets me great
reactions and also it's a great comedy piece.
Dan offers his own presentation wich is very
clever and interesting and his teaching of the method is very clear.
definetely a 5 stars
Quality cards with the standard routine.
When identifying the card by asking just one person
some may think you used a confederate. So ask 4.
One person says "red or black", then
the suit, another says face or number, and the last
person names the card.
Consider skipping the bag Dan uses to recover the deck.
When it's tossed back to
you...miss catching it.
Crud. Now what, it's invisible. Wait, you're a magi;
fingers, wave your wand, etc. and make it visible.
Then find it under the back drop curtain, in
your open case,
or where ever you put it out of sight before the show.
cutting the flap down a little to make it easier to remove the cards, and then just turns the box
upside down and the cards slide out. The cut idea is helpful for bridge/poker cards because they
are light and
won't always slide out when the box is turned over. These
are heavy enough to
slide out well.
You don't have to do the math with this version because by
cards in front of you the selected card will be
on your side and easy to see.
This trick is great for stage performances. I do like the addition of the bag. I was able (with
difficulty) to construct it myself, but have a problem with the "IN" falling off. Repositional Glue
Stick doesn't seem to work on paper bags.
I LOVE THIS DECK, IT'S SO MOUCH FUN TO WORK WITH. DAN HARLAN EXPLAINES THE TRICK EVRY WELL. AGAIN
