I really do like this trick but the gimmick looks a little suspect. I showed it to my very observant
11 year old son and he said, "something looks a little off" when I showed him the box in gimicked
form. I wonder if mine was just not as nicely made as everyone else on the forum cause everyone said
what a quality peice they got but mine looks like it could have come off a photo copy machine. I
love the concept but wish they would come out with a version two that looked just a little cleaner
so I could be more confident with it.

I'm not even a card guy, and I LOVE this trick!
Like a few others have said before me, the
gimmick doesn't look perfect. HOWEVER, I strongly believe a layperson will NEVER notice it. I have
performed this on dozens upon dozens of different occasions, and not once did anyone notice a thing.
(and I am horrible with sleight of hand. So don't worry about knuckle-busting, there is none.)
ADD TO CART! Especially now that they've added a full deck to the deal.

The gimmick is not well made. It can be seen unless it is dark or your audience is far away.

This effect is unbelievably easy to perform and very clever in design. It takes little or no

I like this trick - it's easy to learn - has a nice self working aspect to it and the dvd teaching
by Mason is quality (as always).
He puts a lot of thought into his tricks - and this is a
I'm not sure why his full demo isn't listed above to watch yet - but the trick
is much better than the demo he's speaking over currently listed - so he's kind of almost
underselling a really smart trick.
Grab it - it's a fun one and easy to do.

Well Mark Mason has done it again ! I Confess I am a big Mark Mason Fan. As well as a Rick Lax Fan.
Other reviewers were saying the gimmick was off ... Mine is perfect. This is an offbeat card trick
that the public has never seen, it requires NO SLIEGHT OF HAND. For walk around Magic or table
hopping this is great. For a parlor performance I had them SIGN the box and give it to the spectator
at the end. I also let them lift the card off the deck and let them put the box on top of the card.
There doing the Magic...this very strong. For the most part its clean.
Pros: Easy to do
2-Teachers Mark Mason & Rick Lax
Instructional Videos Very Well
Cons: NO DVD. Promo was mis-leading Rick and Mark both showing package for DVD. NOTE: Chris
from Penguin seen what I was talking about and offered my a FREE DOWN LOAD...
If you like something buy Two !!! .... I just ordered another one !!! its that good
A few weeks before this effect was released, I was sitting at lunch with one of my college buddies
and we were discussing different gimmicks for card tricks...I had asked him "Dude, wouldn't it be
cool to have the card on the box change to a chosen card"...we sat around and wondered on it BUT
couldn't find a clean way of doing it...then BAM...couple weeks go by and I get an email "Mark Mason
Presents: Under Wraps" read the description and showed my buddy and I bought it, got it, showed it
to my buddy and we were BOTH like "D***N why didn't we think of THIS!!! My point is Mark Mason is
incredibly deceptive and diabolical when it comes to creating new gimmicks and I am proud that he
created what we had in mind for changing the image on the back of the card box. This is an amazing
tool and it ALWAYS gets a GREAT reaction. SUPERB!!!!!
LOVE Mark Mason's stuff. Easy to do, as in SUPER easy to do and blows people can't figure it out.
Plus you can use it as an opener and go with other tricks with the deck after. Don't even think
about it, get it.
Like they say "Mark Mason don't put out no junk" Another incredible (and easy to perform)
Very cool little trick that goes over any layman's head. My only small complaint would be that my
gimmick, through some necessary manual handling as in 'ditching (which is taught on the DVD)',
doesn't line up as perfectly as when I first opened it (one of the magnets came off, so I had to
replace it with one of my own, but overall, no worries). Good trick nonetheless, though.
