A visual masterpiece designed by Shin Lim and Tom Elderfield is used as a closer to Shin's Encore Act performed on the Illusionists Show from broadway. What more is there to say?

Gone Deck can both be used as an APPEARING and VANISHING card box, making this a very versatile prop to anyones repertoire.
Every package comes with a premade template so that you can apply any deck of your choosing and use it in the beginning, end, or even middle of your routine. And because it is simply one card thin and works as one unit with no separate parts to worry about, Gone Deck will not get in the way of your performances.

Gone deck comes with an instructional tutorial on how to perform different vanishes, appearances, and even color changes. In addition, Shin Lim teaches you how to not only take care of your gimmick, but also how to create new ones of your own.

Witness this incredible appearing and vanishing card box 5 years in the making

"WTF!!! The Holy grail effect to open or close your card act!"
- Rich Piccone

*SansMinds and Nicholas Lawrence had independently created a similar effect called Unboxing, and Unboxing 2.0

Awesome!!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 23rd, 2016
This is a great effect and a great idea, but, it isn't the greatest for close up. When in box form there is a slight discrepancy on the box, but laymen don't really know what a box is supposed to look like so they don't really care. In card form there is also a slight discrepancy but do to the busy design of a bicycle card, it isn't really noticeable. My only complaint is noise. My gimmick squeaks when it turns from box to card and creaks when it turns from card to box, but this is a minor problem because with a little ambient noise you'll be covered. And I don't know, maybe it's just my gimmick that makes noise, Shins didn't seem to so yeah. All in all it's an amazing effect and I would highly recommend you check it out.

Misleading Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 8th, 2017
I thought I was buying the gimmick itself, or the ability to perform the illusion out of the box. What I got were some instructions, the need for me to provide expensive materials that are destroyed if you make a mistake constructing Gone Deck.
The video teaching the construction was not as thorough in some of the critical places as it needed to be, thus wasting some of the work and materials I had already created in the construction of the Gone Deck. Shin Lim has obviously crafted a number of these before, and is good at making it on the video. I'm not so good at it. I took two or three swipes at it, ran out of materials and nowhere did my best construction come anywhere close to working the way his does, or even how it is supposed to work, or looking like the one that was constructed in the video. Furthermore, using glue that permanently sets makes many of the mistakes that might happen require a complete "re-do" requiring more of the materials.
It would have helped if they provided the materials to make three and already had one of the more difficult tasks done for you (I'd be more specific, but I want to honor the secrecy). Finally the tension of a particular step is variable, and, despite following the instructions exactly, there wasn't enough tension prior to me permanently gluing it to make it work.

Great for parlor or Video magic Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 29th, 2016
One hour video - with only 5 minutes devoted to "how to use" the rest of the video is all labor intensive gimmick constriction. No live performances or tips for performing. Great trick though, highly visual. Would work great for your video or youtube channel

Junk Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 7th, 2016
This is absolute garbage. I am not a new magician and I understand that it is important to learn about Your gimmick before you attempt to use it. I watched the entire training video before I ever attempted anything with my gimmick. I understood the proper handling and how to get the gimmick ready to perform. Although I took all the proper precautions as soon as I used the gimmick it broke. I love the concept of this gimmick and I believe that with a little more work they might be able to build a version that will work the way it is supposed to. They Supply you with material that you can use to fix your gimmick when it breaks but the more times you fix the gimmick the more noticeable the gimmick will be. I never even got a chance to perform this for anyone. I would strongly recommend buying Cold Case by Greg Wilson instead. Cold Case by Greg Wilson is extremely durable you can customize it so that it will work with any brand of cards.

So Cool Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 4th, 2016
This is a very incredible. Basically you receive the template gimmick and you can apply your own box to the gimmick very easily. You probably want to make sure though that you have some extra prym elastic thread in case you run out of the amount that they have given you. But apart form that everything is great!

Pretty good Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 31st, 2016
The effect itself is great, but it won't necessarily work for very close up performances. Be prepared and take your time with the construction, if it is made well then it will work well.

This will fit great into a manipulation routine if you can deal get it on top of the deck.

I would recommend this only if you are really willing to put in the time to construct a high quality gimmick.

Amazing and Visual Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 6th, 2018
This effect, when done correctly, truly looks like magic. I purchased this at a local magic store, and the first time, I did my gone deck wrong, so I had to make a new template completely from scratch. Yes, there is plenty of arts and crafts, but luckily for me, it wasn't as difficult as I thought. I have already made a couple, and I use them so much.

Pros
-Extremely visual
-Versatile gimmick

Cons
-Arts and crafts is hard for some people.

This is great, but why 4/5? This is because for some, arts and crafts comes very difficultly, and with only one provided template, if they mess up, most people are done and must buy another one. If that happens to you, play around with gluing cards in weird orientations and placements and it shouldn't be too hard.

Very good trick Report this review

Some of the tricks included are very good, but there are others where the supplies were not included and are not angle-proof.

great effect. long build time Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 30th, 2016
This is a great and fairly practical effect to perform. However, it takes about 2 hours and 30 minutes to make properly. It comes with a basic outline and then you have to build the rest of it. I think despite the long building time it is an instant reset and will go right into my strolling magic act. I got this early from my local magic ship
