Rick Lax’s trick “Binary Code” fooled Penn & Teller. Now, Rick's released the trick that fools EVERYONE. He’s never taught this version of the trick to ANYONE. Until now.

BINARY CODE 2 isn't a refinement of the original. It's 10-TIMES MORE AMAZING THAN BINARY CODE…and 100-TIMES EASIER TO PERFORM

First you rip a shuffled deck of cards in half. Then one friend takes a half-card from one of the half-decks. Another friend takes a different half-card from the other half-deck. Then you QUICKLY look through the remaining cards…AND REVEAL WHICH HALF-CARDS ARE MISSING.

In other words, YOU MEMORIZE TWO DECKS OF CARDS AT ONCE!!

IMPORTANT POINTS



  • You can perform Binary Code 2 with a borrowed, shuffled deck.
  • No actual memorization needed. It's all an illusion. (This trick is VERY EASY TO PERFORM.)
  • No sleight-of-hand.
  • You DON’T HAVE TO RIP UP THE CARDS IF YOU DON’T WANT. When you purchase
  • Binary Code 2, you’ll learn a version of the trick that keeps all the cards in perfect condition.
  • It’s not just a line: Rick really did tell himself that THIS would be the trick that he NEVER taught anyone.


This will be the most deceptive card trick in your arsenal. Get it before Rick realizes he should have kept it to himself.

Funeral for a deck! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 19th, 2016
Rick Lax has created a self working trick that does what other self working effects do not. It is interesting, commercial and doesn’t require any preparation. I have tried it out in the real world and it gets great reactions.

Tearing the cards makes the difference. That action takes it from an ordinary trick to something that the audience remembers. That action also makes it a difficult trick to perform a lot. To perform the main version you need to tear about 20 cards. If you tear up a deck you have a great reason to pull out a new unprepared deck. It’s a sleight-less deck switch.

In my personal work I use a single deck of cards for signatures, I usually hand the cards out as they are signed. This leads to a small stack of hodge podge cards in the deck at the end of the night. A hodge podge deck of 15 or more cards is great for this effect. You can even leave the cards with the table at the end of the night. I have begun to present the effect as a funeral for the deck, it’s a little funny and a little morbid.

Over all I think that this is a solid routine. I love the idea of destroying a deck but you get an alternative handling as well that you can use a deck without destroying it.

Are Sequels BETTER? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 15th, 2016
"Was the sequel better than the original?" - in this case, YES!

I'm so glad Rick released this version! There's a lot I could say about it, but the short answer is - if you liked Binary Code, you'll love this one more.

In fact, if you do binary code, this doesn't have to be an "either / or" choice. You can still do Binary Code THEN end with this.

I see why Rick almost wouldn't want to release this. It's practically self working - it's THAT easy. If the "memory" and sleight of hand of Binary Code was too tricky for you, THIS effect is the easier version for you - which actually will get you BIGGER reactions.

like always, Rick has thought this through and covered every aspect to make sure you learn this quick and fry brains immediately. HIGHLY RECOMENDED!

Deceptively Genius Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 15th, 2016
Binary Code 2.0 might be a misleading title. While the memory portion of the trick is there, the method and presentation is completely different. It's not an upgrade, it's a whole new trick with a stupidly simple method.

I'm not a big fan of ripping up cards (bicycle decks have gotten more and more expensive!) however, ripping the cards makes it even more difficult for laypeople to comprehend how you're doing it. So rip away if you feel the need.

If you don't feel like ripping it Rick's got a whole card version that works in the exact same method. You need to think a little (and I really mean the slightest extra bit) more in this method, but it's incredibly easy.

Don't be afraid this trick is so good. It's easy, simple, and works perfectly. Rick's teaching is fantastic (as always) and he gives you ideas on presentation, method, and everything else. Really cool trick.

Method was not what I thought Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 16th, 2016
This is a neat trick. I wasn't familiar with this method before. This trick is easy to learn and perform and stands out from the rest. I prefer the torn deck performance. What magician doesn't have a drawer of excess cards at home?

Amazing Effect!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 14th, 2016
Binary Code 2.0!!! Rick Lax does it again. This is a killer impromptu closer with no set up. Just a deck of cards. And it's so easy to perform. Must buy. Thanks Rick for the preview!

Great Piece of Magic ! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 14th, 2016
Another great piece of magic by Rick. very Easy to Learn and its so Powerful. Can be used to trick Magician as well.

He also teaches u how to do without ripping the cards but for me the ripping of cards version is so much more better.

5 Stars to RICK !

Clever! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 21st, 2016
I generally like Rick's tricks and he seems like a decent fellow. Many of his tricks share a few things in common... a) they're really pretty simple to perform and b) they're heavily based on logic and reasoning. I've bought a lot of his stuff and generally been pretty satisfied and occasionally being very let down (I'm looking at you, Triple Flip).

So how is this one? This one is brilliant! It's so insanely, ridiculously simple, but layering it inside of a deck of cards makes it so deceptive. There's a complete training video that I haven't completely watched... I don't need to watch the trailer again... and Rick communicates the magic very clearly. I'm very pleased with this one!

another Rick Lax gem... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 19th, 2016
This is super easy and fun, and the presentation is intriguing. (Rick seems to have a knack for that!)

There's something about tearing the cards (real people don't do that)
that makes this special.

Would I do it walk around for every group?
No.

Would I do it at the end of the night with a big group who wants to see something special?
You bet!

I showed it to my daughters and their jaws dropped.

There's very little to remember, and once you learn this, you'll have a very interesting piece of magic that involves two people.

As others have said, there's also a version where you don't tear the cards.
However, the tearing is part of what appeals to me. I'm all about the presentation, and that definitely makes it more interesting to watch.

Great routine...thanks Rick Lax!

INCREDIBLE Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 14th, 2016
This effect is incredible! I was honored to receive a review copy of this trick from Rick Lax and WOW! Everything makes perfect sense it is SO easy to do, but it will fool any other magician guaranteed! There are 2 versions taught 1 with ripping the cards and one without ripping the cards both are as equally strong, but as Rick explains it is just more special when ripping the cards. This will be my go to closing effect because it is just so powerful and it just seems so impossible. You certainly won't be disappointed with this trick. I have nothing at all negative to say about it. Thank you Rick Lax for sharing this amazing effect.
