"You're gonna fry your audiences" -Jason Dean

WARNING: This trick isn't fair. That's the only way I can describe the feeling of performing Dropsy Diddle. It's so powerful, so easy to do, and spectators don't stand a chance.

Am I ok with this unfairness? Yes, absolutely. It's a blast, and you'll want it all to yourself.

1. Spectator freely drops a bottle cap anywhere on a spread deck.
2. ..then FREELY chooses one of the 3 closest cards (no equivoque)
3. That card PERFECTLY MATCHES the card printed under the bottle cap.

PROFESSIONALS: Jason Dean is a worker. He only creates magic for one reason: to perform himself. We were lucky enough to get him into the studio, and this trick is a gem.

I've seen Jason Dean turn every head at a backstage after-party full of genuine rockstars. The band, their fans, everyone had their eyes on Dean.

PS: Every bottle of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer has a random card printed under the cap. This makes it an awesome prop for card magic. But don't worry, you can perform this trick with any object, even just a slip of paper that you wrote on.

Blah Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 13th, 2014
There are some problems here:

1. You need to do this in a setting where a bottle of Pabst Blue Ribbon is being served/drunk.

2. I have drunk a lot of of Blue Ribbon in my time (including 2 cans last night). I have never seen a bottle at a bar let alone a party. They do exist but they are not common at all -- at least where I have lived and visited.

3. The description claims you can do this with any object, slip of paper, etc. This was discussed in the video for a whole 5 seconds. The randomness of the card choice and the misdirection is all within the Blue Ribbon bottle cap.

4. You will have to rework the trick (patter, presentation, misdirection etc) if you want to use slips of paper, bottle caps or coins . This means creating a random card choice you will have to carry many slips of paper, caps or coins with different cards written on them. It's not organic as the Blue Ribbon bottle and overall not as good.

5. Bottom line don't let the description fool you. The trick completely revolves around a bottle of Pabst Blue Ribbon. Anything else is not practical and "too cute" as Jason says a couple of times in the video.

It's ok Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 10th, 2014
For the money it's "ok". If you check the trailer close enough you'll likely figure it out.... That doesn't mean it's no good. To the contrary I think the effect will play pretty well..... However, it's really nothing new and could easily be something you may have played with on your own as you learned how to handle a deck of cards.... At least that's the case for me.

There's some tips one may find useful. However, if you're looking for something new and or a super secret here.... In my opinion, you won't find it within this effect. To me this is simply a reason to use a slight you may or may not have in your skill set.... If not, you will need to take some time to learn it.

The effect is taught well...

Good luck!

Okay, Not worth Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 17th, 2014
I like the idea of the beer cap but that is all you really get from this video. If you are not a beginner then you know all that this video teaches. I think that if this is the way of penguinmagic is headed with instant downloads then I will head elsewhere. It is not about the money it is the principle. Give your customers a good deal that is fair for the price. This one to me was a scam for the price.

New presentation on an old effect, if you have card college 1 or another beginner book than you might know this already, o.k new idea with the beer cap, but why not selling something new. The teaching and presentation is good.

Editing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 16th, 2014
In an obvious move, edited out of the demo, the performer draws the selected card back to the pack. I am not revealing the slight involved, only what any spectator can see. I guess the reason it wias edited out is that just about every prospective customer would immediately understand how the trick was done.

Good for beginners... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 10th, 2014
From watching the demo i really liked the look of the effect and although i had a bunch of ideas in my head on how it was done ( or could be done ) i still went ahead and bought it just incase it was an original method, and as it was only $5 :).

Overall i have to say i was very disappointed with the method as it was exactly what i expected straight away, but I'm never normally right so i doubted myself and went for it. Id say its not worth a purchase for experienced magicians as you probably know what I'm talking about and have potentially worked it out. But if your a beginner id say buy it! as its still a great trick! and I'm sure you will get some great reactions performing it! plus you will learn an important move which you can use in a range of circumstances.

Overall its a great easy effect for beginners and experienced magicians, plus the video is edited really nicely with a bunch of full performances and very detailed instruction. overall 4/5* but still a really nice effect!

dissapointed Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 16th, 2014
As the demo claims "the sneakiest secret you may ever learn", I expected something at least interesting. Instead, I founded out a move hundred of years old and not so easy to execute in real world. Ok, it,s just five bucks, but I think it,s not worth this little money

Not impressed Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 16th, 2014
Don't want to give anything away, but you cannot use a borrowed deck. I'm a fan of organic tricks. Even if you have to add a duplicate card to a regular deck, that's cool, although I prefer tricks that rely on purely on slight of hand, misdirection, etc.

What others have said about the PBR is true - it's critical to making this trick work right. I may try that portion of it, leaving out the method using the deck.

Also - the explanation leaves out a critical piece of instruction regarding the deck itself. That really ought to be part of the cost.

Very nice impossible looking effect! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 11th, 2014
This effect looks like real magic and is not too difficult to learn, particularly if you are experienced with cards. There is a move required to accomplish the finished result, but with a little practice it can be done very smoothly. Jason is a good teacher and he explains the background workings of the trick in good detail. Although the trick focuses on the use of a specific bottle cap, he does mention some other options. It's pretty easy to come up with your own alternatives when you're familiar with the secret too. Again, this trick will require a little practice, but once you're confident with your performance you will fry some minds with it!

Straight and effective magic. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 11th, 2014
This routine is excellent, well built, and the moves are justified. You will have to practice because it is based on two moves, not difficult, but which need timing and misdirection. So, practice if you don't want to be caught. Just a idea which can be useful for those who cannot find caps for bottles of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer : there are websites (at least in France),where you can order caps (quantity 100), or you can just collect the caps of your bottles of beer. Then write the name of a card in the caps with a permanent felt-tip pen. The trailer is edited but it is just to protect the secret.
