Imagine being able to win every single time at heads-or-tails, using ANY borrowed coin. CAPICUA is a new, clever and practical technique developed by Manuel Leal and produced by Thinking Paradox (creators of best-seller PINCH).

Here's what happens..

You ask a spectator for a coin and then make it spin on a table. Now the SPECTATOR can really stop the coin whenever he wants and you actually know the result every single time even before he/she stops it!

This could be presented as a direct mind reading effect, an impossible prediction or a really cool bar stunt. Best of all, the method is so practical we are sure this will be one of your go to impromptu effects when someone asks you to show them a trick.

There is a flaw in this trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 28th, 2014
At first I was not aware if i was doing it right then i caught on after practice to make sure i was doing it right . The flaw i have found in the trick is that if someone smacks the coin down at an angle and not straight down on the coin it will mess up the prediction . So while its clever and a head scratcher if someone comes down on the coin at an angle and not straight on you will actually predict wrong . I don't know a way around this but if anyone has any advice id love to know because i do really like the effect. But because to me this wasn't addressed and theres no work around it loses two stars in my book .

I take my last review back! Report this review

It started happening 100% of the time when I used it on a better surface. Some surfaces work better than others. I'm surprised they didn't go over this more. Also, some coins work better than others which they do go over. This is a really interesting principle and reminds me of Derren Brown's experiment where he got heads 10 times in a row (which you can do with this).

Super useful and practical Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 25th, 2014
I'm impressed. The method is cool, you only need a straight surface and a little practice for it but that's actually good.The method you use even can be framed as fairer than the normal coin toss( since you never toss the coin) since it seems more random which it is if you don't use the secret. WOrth it's money to win any bet, use coin tosses for decisions among friends, so many possibilities! Buy!

Use a borrowed coin and blow people away. Predict heads or tails EVERY time. No gimmicks! No switches!

I can't think of anything negative to say about this trick.

Great trick but limited in the US Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 27th, 2014
First I'd like to say this is a very simple and very clever effect. It's a great impromptu tool you can use in a variety of routines.

Unfortunately it's not 100% reliable with every US coin. I wish it would have been more clear in the description. After seeing the principle and with just a little experimentation it became apparent that only one US coin works as reliably as the description touts. They even go over this towards the end of the video so it's not unknown to the creators.

That aside, it's still a great trick but if you are using a borrowed coin in the US you may need to perform a magicians choice or similar effect to get a guaranteed result.

Hello again Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 27th, 2014
Since my last recommendation for this knacky-lite tool...I repeated over and over...and again and again.
I live in NJ now...and pulled out a kitchen surface with 20 nickels - ALL face down.

Lather - rinse... repeat.
OVER 1000 Reps!

Out of that 1000 reps...27 missed.

That 27 misses were in the first 129 reps...after 129 = every other was on point...EVERY ONE HIT!

It became robotic and boring at about 700 to 800 reps..but, then again...I learned the turnover Pass from Jack Flosso - and that long gone early icon of magic (son of the 'Coney Island Fakir...Al Flosso)...and even Al told me WAY before the net..."Any thing you do...should become automatic...so you can concentrate on speaking to your audience. Just like brushing your teeth...just a part of whats around you."

This coin spin does have a small knacky-thingy to it. Though not strongly emphasized on the download...in the USA and Canada...use looneys and toonies and nickels or pennies.
In USA -- if it fits in to what your doing - Dollar coins are the best.

As a previous poster wrote..a (FRICKIN great) one-ahead!(Kudos and a high 5.....Hells Bells a high 10! Smart. Good stuff.)

This seeming simple thing is a move all should know in our community.

OH..as a part of a 3 card con or the endless chain (MY 2 favorite magical con effects..In humble truth, this old man is DAMN good at these cons)...after now over 1000 reps as stated
Solid..secure... and will have it in my toolbox for however long I am in this world.

Its not costly...about the price of a TT or a flash pad.

I must be missing it. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2014
I watched this video 5 times. I practiced for 2 hours. At the end of day I only got about 60 percent right. That could be just luck. I did everything that the video said to do and I practiced it over and over. Still nothing. I cannot recommend this to others at this time. Sorry. I wanted to like this. But I don't.

Excellent Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2014
At first I was disappointed because it was not in english (it did have English subtitles). After watching it I found this method to be diabolical and superior to a previous method I used to use. This is done totally different than the way I thought.
I am extremely satisfied with it and highly recommend the product.

Great idea! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 25th, 2014
Simple, dependable...impromptu!
One of those great little tools than can fit into a bar bet or as part of a much larger routine.
This works. Since trying it out, I find myself slotting it right into many effects I already do.
Worth more than the asking price...learn this and you will only need some normal pocket change to impress.
OH...takes a few try's to get it right....then do it again and again. Truly easy to train it into your skill set.
