"He's fooled me worse, AND more times than any magician on the planet." -Rick Lax

If you ever want to know when Juan Tamariz has arrived at a convention, watch for the mob of professional magicians running towards the hotel lobby like school boys.

Juan Tamariz travels the world fooling everyone. Pro magicians. Card experts. Guys who never get fooled.

He's a living legend, and Royalistic is his reputation making 5-card poker trick.

HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS

1. Show 5 indifferent cards, front and back.
2. Do a "secret move" to demonstrate your skills
3. Show that you've instantly swapped the 5 cards out for a ROYAL FLUSH.
4. And the kicker: to hammer home the point that you really switched these cards out right under their noses.. their backs are ALL DIFFERENT, TOO.

PROFESSIONALS: What makes this trick so powerful is its simplicity. You're not using the deck at all. All eyes are burning your hands, and those 5 cards. Even if nobody blinks, they won't see a thing.

You can't go wrong with anything by Juan Tamariz. Enjoy!

"Juan Tamariz' Royalistic is one of my favorite routines to perform at casual gatherings, walk-around, table-hopping, tradeshows and any close-quarters situations. It is topical, direct, visual and impossible. It is as close to a perfect routine as you can get. I have performed it more than 10,000 times since Juan taught it to me in 1998 and it has never failed me. The day Juan agreed to let me release it to the magic community was one of my happiest days. And now it is ready for you to enjoy--and you will!" -Meir Yedid

One of the best card routines you will ever do!

You freely display a mediocre Poker hand with blue (or red) backs. You square the cards, make a magical gesture (if you like) and immediately show that the five cards changed into the best possible Poker hand--A Royal Flush. For an unbelievable ending you now turn the cards face down to show that each card has a different back.

Comes complete with all necessary cards and full-color, photo-illustrated instructions.

Easy to learn.

Royalistic AND Poker Test 2.0 Report this review

Here's a crazy idea. What if you START with Poker Test 2.0. Flashy, visual, quick. Then you do a bunch of card magic...maybe a poker trick. And then you END with Royalistic. It's a great finisher because unlike Poker Test 2.0, you can really show the cards freely. They sit on the table, you can turn them over, fan them out. (Unlike Poker Test 2.0 in which you must handle the cards in a specific way.)

Just think that'd be so killer...similar trick but with completely different methods....I bet it would blow people away.

I am surprised this one does not have more reviews. Don't get hung up on the first change. The second change is really what this one is about.
What gets 3 stars is the get ready. I bought this from Meir at the Expo. Had him demo live. He did the get ready in 2 seconds behind his demo table. This maybe is misleading to an out of pocket performance.

Most will be turned off by the NEW quality of the gimmick. There is noise and you need to work them before performing this if you cant cover that.

Meir told me the set he showed me had been used at least 30 times. I could see how using that many times does help.

However after practicing and working on the real version of the count Lax was TRYING to do, my cards lost their slip and look dirty faster. I have not shown anyone yet and they are now dingy looking? They were fine out of the bag but went down hill pretty fast. AND one gimmick has lost its ability already. I was so close to having a get ready that was working but fear it is what weakened.

Not that this is an issue, the secret can be applied. I would probably buy a deck and make my own sets rather than buy it again at $25. One time to get the work was fine but to go from too strong to too weak did not last long enough especially since not showing anyone.

Juan uses a different method that is described in the notes. This is helpful but assume it would require a different touch so they went with what they did.

People compare this Poker Test 2.I would say royalistic is better as you don't have to move cards and it is instantly reset to start again. Compared to PT2 you are not chunky and the handling at the end is very clean and open.
Lax backwards use of the count would have trouble or extra care if cards not new.

Summary- Good to learn. Needs work to fit into the walk around area. If you are one to just show a trick to a friend or family member, you will rate it a little higher.

Could be improved Report this review

This is a cool trick but the instructions are poor!
A DVD explanation would go a long way. I would not recommend buying anything that does not include a DVD presentation of how a trick works.

Very clever and easy setup. A little hard to start the trick for me (getting the right card separation and finger positions), but extremely clever.

Incredible method and KILLER reactions! Report this review

Royalistic is an instant classic. And you can perform this immediately because of the teaching video Rick Lax has made showing his incredible routine.

Most everyone will have everything they need in their magic supply area and kitchen.

You can make this up in ANY brand of cards you use!

Here are a couple of more video ideas for performing Royalistic:

Just awesome Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 12th, 2018
One of those tricks,where trailer does not need editing. You can do exactly what you see and with minimal or mostly none sleight of hand at all. I also absolutely love Rick's handling, which I find much more clear and straightforward,as it needs even less sleight of hand than the original one.
Buy that and you will see yourself.
