Superficial intro Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 8th, 2010
I don't know if you can really "learn" the classic force in a video as short as this one. If you consider this to be a mere introduction to the classic force intended for a beginner, then I would say this is a good start. It lays out exactly what the classic force is, and explains the basic mechanics of it.

What it doesn't explain is, why you'd want to use it. The obvious short-coming is that it doesn't work 100% of the time. In fact, as you're learning it, it'll hardly work at all. And it's one of the few techniques that you really can't practice by yourself. Even using a partner is problematic, because all you'll end up learning is the timing specific to THAT person. This requires real world practice, and you're going to need plenty of contingency plans to cover all the times you miss.

My own personal bias is that there are other forces that are deceptive enough that are 100% effective. Some will argue that this is the most deceptive, but look at it this way: the spectator who recognizes a riffle force or a slip cut force, is the same spectator who will recognize your attempt at a classic force and purposely screw you up by taking a card he knows you're not trying to force. So who are we trying to fool with a classic force? My belief is that this is strictly an ego move. Card guys love the difficulty and they love "putting one over" on the spectator. If that's your thing, great. But don't think that it makes your effects any better.

The force Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 26th, 2011
This is definitely worth the six bucks. even if you went and looked this up on you tube like i did at first, chances are that the guy from you tube didn't know what he was talking about. Oz Pearlman does an excellent job at explaining the force. the force itself is really solid. my recommendation is that once you learn the force, try and do it every time you do card magic, even if you dont need to force a card, do it for practice and you will have it really quickly. even if you aren't that into cards i think you need to know this because if you are really good at the force it can become a trik in itself.

The Best of the Best Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 5th, 2010
You're eventually going to want to stray away from the riffle or slip force and learn this one. This is the most natural of all card forces. Just spread the cards and let them take one.

It will take practice but the more you try it, the better you will be. Unfortunately it will never ever work 100% because if you try it on a sceptical person they'll likely just want to grab a card from the top or bottom of the pile.

Having said this, as you improve, you'll be able to tell which spectators to try it on and after a while you'll be getting it every time.

All Magicians Must Now This Force Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 4th, 2010
If you call yourself a card magician, then you have to know this force. It will require a LOT of practice, and even then, it won't work 100% of the time. However, this will be your workhorse of forces. If you are unable to force it, then just go into a different card trick. I can't stress enough the importance of knowing this force. Oz does a good job at teaching the basics. If you want something a little more detailed, then you may want to get the Classic Force by Paul Green.

this is a classic in magic. if you dont know it, you need to. if you purchase here you will get a great explanation with helpful applications in real everyday magic. This is a tool, not a trick in and of itself.

Good tool, add to cart

The reason why I first got into card magic was that my friend made the Classic Force on me and it blew my mind. I just HAD to learn it.

It is a bit hard to master but when you finally get it down.. well.. amazing. Simply amazing.

Great download! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I would definitely recommend it. It's a lot of fun, and it really is the best force around. You can't beat the idea of having the spectator "freely" choosing any card they want!

great force, very useful Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 10th, 2009
easily my most useful card move. it's so much fun to mess with people and have them choose the same card over and over again "by mistake". i have been performing this force for over a year since i learned it. it didnt take much time before i have the spectator choose the card i want them to 95 percent of the time! and sometimes three times in a row to the same person! they freak out over the effects that could be created from this force.

dude, this just looks better than magic. You just spread the deck, pick any card and the magician just matches that card without any slights.

Good force Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 4th, 2008
I simply love this force, it does require the perfect timing though, but if you screw up just pull of another trick. I thank Penguin for making awsome instant downloads, they have helped me a lot.


many thanks,
