Fantastic Impromptu Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 23rd, 2015
Nothing better than a trick that will really blow somebody away that you can do with any deck of cards, just about anytime and anywhere, and is all but self-working. I've performed this several times now and it gets big, stunned reactions every time. One spectator spent a good five minutes examining the deck and the card I'd pulled from my wallet and never came anywhere close to guessing the secret. I literally could not be happier with this purchase.

This is an OK trick... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 1st, 2019
This is an OK trick that uses an easy force. There are many effects which use this force... The best use of this is Max Maven's trick Predilexion. I'm glad to hear Mr. Peterson give Phil Goldstein credit in his video. The trick is a great beginner trick, but it can be better.

In this effect there is a little bit of a "magician's choice". Personally, I've always hated that. Max Maven's Predilexion takes that choice and makes it an integral part of the trick.... Actually, for the same price, Go get the other trick: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/8655

Nothing new under the sun Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 10th, 2015
This is a single card version of Fogel's Triple Prediction which can be found in Eugene Burger's Mastering the Art of Magic. Thom does have different variations in handling, such as his prediction card from a separate deck. The effect is good, but I prefer Fogel's much more and use that one as one of my go to impromptu mentalism tricks. The video is a bit misleading as it looks like the spectator dealt down cards and set one aside.

Very enjoyable Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 20th, 2015
I not only like the price of this nice little trick but I have found several ways to add my own but of flair to it without disturbing what the creator has come up with.
Anyone with a fair attention span can fool 99% of the people with this one. It can be done by beginner to pro without regret. Also in its simplicity and lack of prep needs, you are unlikely to forget it. The only reason I give four not five stars is that it's not a KNOCKOUT but then so few are.
Well done!

showmanship Report this review

Reminds me of some effects taught by Eugene Burger. You can concentrate on the presentation and not be distracted by the "moves". Very strong. Simple but not easy.

Silent Jaw-drop Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 20th, 2015
This is much stronger than you might think. You can start using this almost as soon as you finish the video. I did, and I was surprised by how well it plays. The reaction every time... silent jaw-drop. I play it as a free-will experiment -- what do they think, free will or (turn over the prediction) destiny? My only problem, now that I have a person sitting across from me with open mouth and furrowed brow, is how do I help them get unstuck and move on?

OK, anyone that has been doing magic for at least a week already knows this trick. The value of this download is not in the trick itself but in the Presentation of the trick. That's what creates the magic. Yes,this trick can be done by anyone, anytime! It's a real mindblower in the eyes of the spectators. Well worth the price. 5 out of 5.
