"A series of powerful illusions" -Rick Lax

"This is the type of trick I can imagine someone like Greg Wilson winning FISM with. It gives you everything you need to have FUN with people." -Maxwell Murphy

"You'll never look at a matchbox the same way again" -Shaun Dunn

I knew Rick Lax was a great magic inventor, but I didn't realize how good until I learned Vuja De. He's turned a single trick with a match-box into a close-up master class.

PROFESSIONALS When you see how much thought and design went into this routine, you're going to love it more than you ever expected. So much misdirection is packed into this one pocket-sized miracle.

Perfect for Real World Walk Around Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 30th, 2014
I'm always struggling to find a POWERFUL, VISUAL effect that is simple to do, simple to reset and angle safe ... that isn't already being done by everyone.
Vuja De is perfect. You can perform it walking around, no table. It's straightforward and visual.

The multiphase routine means you get some mileage out of this prop. And the subtleties of each "repeat" are different in effect and in direct method. That means you're always a step ahead. Each phase seems to cancel out any explanation for the prior phase.

And you're not simply repeating - you're building the mystery in each phase. Finally - you end clean. Amen.

Those of us who work cocktail hours (with obnoxious drinkers, teens) know that ending with a gimmick in hand is the worst way to close a trick. Here, you end clean.

Matchbooks are common - they don't arouse suspicion ... and they give me some variety in props.

It isn't an instant reset - but you can reset the whole thing quickly and inside your jacket pocket. If you're not wearing a jacket, you may be able to do it in your pants pocket - but it may look like you're having too much fun.

The whole thing packs super-small, lends itself to a woo-woo spooky dej vu approach - or a sillier routine.

At the end you're left with a real book of matches ... you can segue into a bit with some flashpaper and a production.

OK ... buy it!

A must Buy ! ! ! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 30th, 2014
I never bought a "Download" Trick before. But this one has a 3-second "POW" moment that blew me outta my chair. Like Flap Cards - the Spectator sees an impossible, visual change occur right before their very eyes. This is a sequence of tricks. Trick 1 and Trick 2 I am ho-hum about. But Trick 3 - WOW !!! He calmly - almost slowly - shakes the uncovered matchbox and it simply "melts" into a covered matchbox. It is a miracle. I watched it again and again - certain I knew what he was doing but unable to see it being done. I even watched it frame-by-frame . . . to no avail. You CANNOT SEE HOW HE CHANGES IT !!! The Video is excellent - full explanation of it all including misdirection Tips.

Really Clever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 30th, 2014
I bought this because I like effects with matchboxes. As I was watching the video it struck me that this will be a perfect lead in effect for Jay Sankey's DOA especially since the spectators get to handle the box before on both of these routines.

This is a practical, visual trick that is something I think people will remember. The arts and crafts part is easy to accomplish and the routine flows.

It is the best download I've purchased from Penguin. I am very pleased .

simple, portable, affordable Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 30th, 2014
For the magic you can get out of this effect the ease of performing it seems almost unfair. It's a nice length for a trick and there's something happening the whole time and a reason for it to be happening. It flows very nicely.
If you want to look like the greatest slight of hand expert your audience has ever seen, but don't want to spend your whole life in front of a mirror (it's too late for me, save yourself) buy this trick. I purchased it on sale, but if I could pay full price I would. It's a value at twice as much.

This is a super simple to make gimmick and the routine is so so good. This is a perfect opener for any walkaround set, I'm very passionate about this release. It's everything I want in a routine, multiple magic moments. When you watch the full performance you see their brains exploding.
