WORKER OF THE YEAR 2016 - Wizard Product Review

A spectator is handed a recently shuffled deck of cards but told not to look at the faces and to place it face down onto a table. They cut it into two piles. They are then asked to think of a card, any card and not to tell anyone their choice. The cut is then completed. The magicians quickly looks at the cards and places a few on the top. The deck is then cut again and completed, The magicians quickly looks at the cards and places a few on the top. Then once again the deck is cut and completed. After some more presentation spectator is asked to deal the cards face down and to stop at anytime, free choice, ...at anytime. When the top card is turned over it is the selected card and when the deck is turned over the ENTIRE DECK IS BLANK!! and then past out for examination !! A real magician fooler.

Easily five minutes of great magic and comedy interaction. I Hate Card Tricks is the ultimate effect to fool laymen and magician alike.

I purchased this monumental mindscrew a few months ago and am literally shocked that magicians aren't falling all over themselves to give this positive reviews! And then, it dawned on me; "the silence is for a reason...this is WAY too good to share!" Yeah, it's one of those. Just like 25-years ago when Mike Powers released Holey Terror to the world and magicians got all quiet and hush-hush because NO ONE wanted anyone else, ESPECIALLY non-working magicians, to have this in their hands for fear it would flood the gates and possibly ruin the impact it had on paying audiences. Well, consider me the evil "Masked Magician" of the 21st Century because THIS effect deserves to be seen! It's well within the grasp of any level to perform, although presentation is EVERYTHING here and you'll need excellent and skilled audience management to create a miracle for audiences imbibing in a bar setting, it's a true stunner! My ONLY gripe, although very picky and easily attributed to my perfectionistic OCD for flawless routining would be that I wish it came with standard Bicycle Rider Back cards, but since Penguin sells a blank face Bicycle Rider Back deck pretty cheap, I can eliminate the need for Prozak pretty cheaply! Stephen is a hoot and very, very intelligent although I think he loves for people to think he's just a goon who gets lucky....ALL THE TIME (LOL!), so his approach is very entertaining and textbook precise for those, like myself, who want to simply perform a couple miracles as "regular" Joes with "no clue" of proper card handling...sort of "portals" for this crazy stuff to act through.

Again, as deadly as this effect is and for the amount of slayed brain matter it leaves behind, I'm simply shocked there aren't pages of glowing reviews for this, but as mentioned, I'm sure there are hundreds of magicians out there putting legit hits out on me right now for tipping this as Card Trick Of The Year if you really want to leave your audiences talking about you for a
few decades to come. There's really no explaination they can hang their hat on and the real "work" goes completely out-the-window upon conclusion when you turn the garden hose on them around the corner at the conclusion. Backtracking just isn't an option and everything they thought they had on you, justified or not, is crushed by the Godzilla-like devastation waiting for them to pour through and examine.

You know what? Forget everything I just said. Please, DON'T buy this! I think I do want this one for myself!!! (Wink-Wink, Nudge-Nudge, Add To Cart you wanker and start performing REAL magic)

I DONT hate this card trick! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 5th, 2015
Before ordering this fantastic item, naturally, I looked at the preview and wondered, " Is this going to be good for ME?" My hands are small, my skills are not as good as they could be with sleights, I've honestly only found five or six tricks that I love out of the dozens bought. This IS ONE OF THEM. I not going to go on and on because that might give the secret away and it's one that really needs to be well guarded. SO EASY I will be showing it after only three days of having the method available to me.
If you like a really good ride for your money, no matter your level of experience ( though the better you are the better this routine will look ), want that what the Hell reaction... Put this in your cart now.
You will get everything you need for a great finisher, middle or opener. Plus the DVD to study and perfect a classy illusion.

I over looked this before because I'm not a fan of most card tricks, but THIS!! This trick hung me out to dry after a thorough scrubbing. I've already done it twice to my girlfriend (both ways/versions) and I destroyed her both times. GET IT

Genius trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 13th, 2017
As others have said this trick leads the spectator down the golden path using what seems like a really boring and long trick and then absolutely murders them in the end. To see a full proper presentation watch the guys from Wizard Product Review perform this trick. The spectators are absolutely speechless in the end. Simple concept. Well done

Deceivingly Simple! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 28th, 2015
I recently got this from my parents for Christmas and I was very happy and shocked when I took off the wrapping paper because iv'e actually wanted this effect for a while because I REALLY love the effect and it COMPLETELY fooled me and of course this got Worker of the Week AND Worker of the YEAR on the Wizard Product Review and I can see why. Because it's so deceivingly simple that this should be known by as few magicians as possible. Also Stephen is a VERY clever guy and pretty smart when it comes to fooling magicians. Even on the DVD Stephen goes over some patter and handling points to use when performing this to magicians that you put in to create physiological plants in there mind to make this a GUARANTEED magician fooler. And I'm going to warn you right now that this effect is almost complete patter and acting support and I would NOT recommend this product to beginners. I would say you would have to be at least have a low intermediate knowledge and skill level in card magic. And Stephen said on the DVD that this is his trick he show's at conventions and I'm going to my first magic convention in April in Toronto and I'm DEFINITELY going to perform this to some professional's there. I already showed this trick to my dad and nana and I got a really good reaction from both of them. Also when I show this at the magic convention I'm going to I'm NOT going to tip the effect it's just THAT good. And one more very important point..... if you purchase this effect DO NOT tip or share this product with you magic friends. Just perform this to them and leave them scratching their heads for the rest of their lives. But as it says in the ad-copy that this will fool layman and magicians alike which I'll tell you is so true so you don't have to use this specifically as a magician fooler. This is the kind of effect I'm going to use for the rest of my life and I guarantee it will be the same for you and you WON'T be disappointed. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Buy it now with 0% hesitation or the magic god's will curse upon you! :)

Thank you, Mr. Bargatze!

This is the closer I've been looking for. First come the gasps. Then the blank stares. Then the rousing applause.

And thank you, Penguin. Now if you can just package Mr. Bargatze's wonderful talent for entertaining. :)
