1. Remove 3 threes from your deck and throw away the 4th three.
2. Hand the 3 threes out for examination and make sure everyone can see there are NO OTHER THREES.
3. Clearly weave the threes with indifferent cards, and with NO moves, switches or sleights, the threes separate themselves from the other cards.

This is repeated a second time with the threes face up. The threes are once again mixed in between any 3 regular cards in the cleanest, fairest manner. The spectator actually sees every three being placed in between any 3 indifferent cards. Under these impossible circumstances, the cards once again separate from each other.

* No sleight of hand
* Super easy to do
* The gaff can be left in any deck all the time, so you are always ready to perform
* Instantly reset to go again.

3's a Crowd comes complete with two special gimmicks: 1 RED, 1 BLUE and a full training DVD.

Self Working "Oil And Water" Is A Perfect 5! Report this review

I have had this for years now (just written instructions and no dvd)- and it is one of my favorite effects. Just one card (gimmick) that you can keep in the deck with you at all times and you are ready to go. Its a 2 phase routine, the first phase is very baffling- the 2nd phase even better, and its so easy my 8 year old son can do it no problem. Pick this little gem up...it's very simple but stumps everyone I have done it for.

Its Great!!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 29th, 2014
Honestly, I was hesitant when it came to buying this trick. However, when this came in the mail and I saw the gimmicks, I was thinking "Man another horrible purchase!" But after I watched the DVD(which was short and to the point) I was able to do this in like a minute. No exaggeration there! Its really easy. If your a beginner in card magic or you just want to add another card effect in to your existing routine, this trick is one of the best places to start. I highly recommend it.

The only issue I have with this trick is that at the end, the three 3s are examinable, but the deck is not. Sure they can handle them for maybe 10 secs, but no longer than that. However, if you perform it the way Mark teaches you, they will never ask to see the deck. Buy this!!!!!!!!!!

This is simply another marvellous card presentation. I would personally and strongly recommend this to those looking for something not too difficult and gives you a strong punch at the conclusion of this very smart and professional illusion. You will just love it and so simple to perform... Why not take up the challenge and put it in your next performance.... Well done again Pelicun.

Stupidly easy Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 20th, 2017
I thought I had guessed the idea but thought I would buy anyway to confirm well in fact it was even better with such an easy trick and extremely easy to learn. The instruction being first class. I am a lover of card magic but not great at handling pure amateur so gaffed cards for me work however I believe this one to be one of the best and already tried and tested on friends who are blown away by this trick. You can even be a bit cheeky with the deck and flash as much as you want without anyone noticing anything.

Piece of Cake... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 12th, 2015
Really, it is a "piece of cake" to perform. Very quick and simple to set up, then you are good to go for a 2 phase trick that starts clean and ends clean (yes, the spectators can check out the 3's at the beginning and end of the illusion.) Mark does a great job with the instructional DVD. As always, he takes his time, speaks clearly, the visuals are clear, and gives you additional handling tips that usually prove useful. Also, you get two gimmicks...one each with red or blue Bicycle backs so you can pick your favorite.
Another point, the gimmick is "barely" noticeable while in the deck. In fact, it's subtlety allows you to leave it in the deck. I don't really care for having "specialty" decks for a single trick. This allows me the option for multiple tricks with a normal deck.
In closing, easy to learn and gets great reactions...Add to cart!

Best of the best Awesome! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 31st, 2015
Real good. One of my favorite card tricks. This is the closer. I love the words Mark Mason put into this like for example "watch carefully,this is amazing" "you won't believe what you are going to see". Nice magician words. Just awesome, just awesome. Oil and water with a story, I'm a story, no slights. Just awesome. There is no reason why I should not recommend this highly with a Rainbow on Top!
P.S my female friend said this was the best card trick, she almost called it the best trick. I say this might be a Perfect Trick. A lot of patter words for full potential but still Greatness.
