They don't stand a chance when you have the upper hand.

Gary Jones has created an impossible card trick that is easy to learn.

Four Jokers and 4 signed cards are used. The 4 signed cards are counted and placed in the spectator's hand. The 4 jokers are placed in 4 different pockets and BAM, without any sleight of hand they switch places.

The gimmick does almost all the work for you. This trick is a worker, it packs small plays huge, it can use signed cards and it is very commercial. This is a trick Gary uses all the time.

This is impossible magic for ANY skill level.

As much as I deeply admire Gary Jones, this one is not something to rave about. It starts with showing two groups of four cards and then immediately runs into a major issue which involves a blatant discrepancy in putting 4 cards into the spectators hands. This discrepancy cannot be avoided in the handling and is noticed immediately by an attentive audience. Next comes a series of very bad flustration type convincers, three out of 4 of which are discrepancies once again. So what we have in this setup is no less than 4 discrepancies, an unfortunate circumstance that greatly exceeds my tolerance for hiding discrepancies. The transpo-reveal is a four card transpo that cannot be examined unless the "cards in pockets" routine is used (my recommendation). This four card transpo will not be replacing my existing routines. The handling on this is way below average for Gary. Fifteen bucks is way too much for this rather very poor handling riddled with way too many discrepancies. "Double Back" is much more impressive with much better handling. I hope Penguin gives me a coupon for my continued support.

IT'S A WORKER! Report this review

I'm finally calming down (a little!) with my magic purchases, preferring to only buy things that I can see myself performing to a paying audience. This fits the bill: simple (it has to be for me 😉) big effect for very little effort, instant or lightning quick reset.

Ticks all the boxes. Why are still reading this? Go and buy it!

Wowser! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 10th, 2017
Just bought it, am waiting for the gimmick in the mail. 'Decided not to wait for the gimmick, so I followed the instructions to make another one. Practiced the handling for 10 minutes & wallah!.....am performing to the amazement of all. The simplest illusions work the best for me, especially when I can give out all the cards for souveniers (minus the gimmick, of course). Thanks to all for a tremendous effect. Knowing the secret now opens up a whole new way to come up with new effects.

when i got the cards through the post i decided to watch the download before i looked at the cards , the download shows three performances in all three i could see the dodgy move, i then showed a performance to a magician friend and it didnt fly by him , sorry i really wanted to like this but back of the draw it goes

Disappointed Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 3rd, 2017
Sorry but I was really disappointed with this--the method is ancient and on my cards did not work very well--there is a bit of handling thay would put off a beginner. I feel like I,ve wasted my money-again. I appreciate that some people would like this.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 19th, 2017
At first glance I was a little bummed then I performed it for some friends and family and it always ends in an David Blaine moment of screams and cheers and the only reason I'm giving it four stars is because I will have to make a new gimmick when this wears out. get Upper Hand you will be happy you did.

spectators are blown away Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 10th, 2017
I've been using this in my routine for 2 years - without exceptions spectators are blown away when the effect happens in their own hands. Highly recommend

Stopped my card expert pal in his tracks! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 11th, 2017
I saw Gary Jones perform his cards to pocket at a lecture day and loved it. That was before he and Chris Congreave pushed it further, got rid of the sleights and added the gimmick. Now this classic routine is within the grasp of any even slightly competent magician. Trust Gary, there's one 'move', it's not hard and it will fly past.

The first person I showed this to is a full time pro magician, Magic Circle member and knows his way around a transpo effect. Stopped him dead in his tracks - got a "WHOA! What just happened?".

This will be in my packet trick wallet for ever.

Very good trick. I love tricks with a twist especially this one where you are so far ahead of the spectator. Get it!!
