"The Muldoon match is a beautifully constructed triple matching routine that people will remember! It looks so fair as your spectators make all the choices and are actively involved in the presentation. Paul left no stone unturned in the teaching of this effect. I give it my highest recommendation!" -John Carey

"The Muldoon Match is a super slick triple prediction and typically Paul Gordon; direct, commercial, fooling and to top it off, it's super easy to do! I love it!" -Peter Nardi

"Muldoon Match is a quality routine with a lot of versatility. You can do this with any deck and you are only limited by your imagination. They'll be talking about it long after you've performed. A brilliant concept has been brought back to life with new thoughts and a clever approach." -Lance Miller

"The Muldoon Match is one of his great routines for the real world. The instruction is top-notch. Clearly explained and performed. While it is an easy trick to do, technically, Paul also teaches some great nuances and additional thoughts about your performances. The routine can be done for one person or a group of three. It is a great “interlude pieces” and will probably end up in my working repertoire. It is stunningly simple, yet a strong piece of Magic." -Paul Green

"I love effects that divert the attention away from the magician for a moment and make the spectator the star! Mix that in with a killer clean method and Paul's awesome tuition and you have a stunning effect you will definitely be performing for everyone!" -Jamie Daws

"Simple yet powerful, love this sort of stuff" -Rus Andrews

"A thorough tutorial of one of Paul's overlooked gems and to see the genuine lay reactions confirms what a good routine this really is. To top it off it's super easy to do, recommended!" -Paul Hallas

"Muldoon match is exactly what you expect from Paul Gordon. Straight forward, practical, hard hitting and very well taught. This is something that you will use. I've been using this for more years than I want to admit to!!" -Mark Chandaue

A stunning prediction of three freely thought of cards.

Muldoon Match is one of Paul Gordon's most powerful effects; and to top it off, the simple gimmick makes it completely self working!

Do it with photos, with business cards, ESP cards, tarot or any deck of playing cards!

Paul teaches this killer effect in great detail to ensure that you know everything that you need to know to blow people's minds with this unmissable mind reading miracle.

Great trick, taught clearly, could use more justification Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 25th, 2017
Muldoon match is honestly a great trick. There's a lot going for it. I've worked with many variations with this in the past and honestly, the switch here is one of the cleanest.

The ad copy states that this can be done with any deck, and while this is technically true, and Paul spends a long time trying to make it true, that doesn't mean anything near what you think it means. I doubt that all too many people will end up ever doing it with that random deck of casino cards they found at the bar.

The teaching on this is really high caliber. Everything is taught really slowly and clearly from multiple angles. There is a good chance that you are familiar with the primary "move" (if you can even call it that), in which case you'll want to skip about five minutes of the introduction.
Paul also does a really great job teaching how to make the gimmick if you can't find one professionally made. I've been in magic about 15 years and I learned a few new things there.

I do want to also point out that although the switch is very clean, among the cleanest solutions for this problem, the plot shares an issue many variations of this plot have. The fact remains that anything you do between when they name their card for the first time and you flip it over is somwewhat suspicious. Yes, you don't touch their card, until you're almost ready to flip it over, but until you flip that card over, they're bugging out, and want to know whether they got it and will be highly suspicious of every little thing you do. They may even flip over the card themself. I understand that with audience management you can stop them from flipping it over but the fact is, its still uncomfortable and awkward. that's why I stopped performing other versions of this plot about seven years ago. If Paul has been doing this trick at every gig for the last 25 years he must have a really good reason he's telling them why he isn't flipping the first card over immediately and for him not to tell it to us is downright irresponsible. Yes, I probably shouldn't be so lazy and should come up with a justification myself, the fact remains that for advanced magicians the most important thing they could possibly get out of this trick is the justification so I wish it would have been taught. With that, this would have been 5 stars easily.

I do just want to point out that you can do this trick with two or four people as well, and when you do this trick with the number of people that you have at the table and you make it clear at the beginning that you are going to do this on everybody the justification issue is not so much of a problem so this becomes a five star trick again as it rightly should have been all along.

Really VERY clever! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 22nd, 2017
I really didn't even know what kind of method to expect after watching the trailer. I am blown away by the simplicity of it all. I performed this on the same day I watched the teaching video, and it left them with their jaws dropped. My sleight of hand skills are crap too, and it doesn't matter.

To be honest, this is the best download I've seen in a good while.

Sometimes simple is stunning... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 22nd, 2017
Paul Gordon spends an engaging 22 minutes going over this trippy card trick, and even knowing how it was done never softened the impact of the payoff. I can only imagine how non-magic spectators will really fall for this.

While the wheel is not reinvented for the Muldoon Match, the presentation is very simple and the finale is solid.

I would also bet most purchasers already have what's needed to present this - and if not Paul offers a couple of workarounds.

This...is...beautiful.

Almost Flawless Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 29th, 2018
I am writing this review after working with this, and I must say that it is almost flawless.

I've been a fan of 3-card match type effects for many years. I know a pile of methods for doing them. The best have to be straight forward with absolutely no perception of trick moves at all. There's only one tiny place in here that a spectator might suspect something, but it can fly right past them if you act like it's nothing and move on. For that reason the Muldoon Match instantly became my #2 favorite way of doing this effect.

The reason I knocked a star off is the performance. I was introduced to the effect many years ago as mentalism, and I still think it is best played that way. Performing it as a "card trick" severely diminishes the impact. I had to completely rework the presentation from what is taught on the video.

Now it never fails to blow my audience away. I would like to thank Paul and Penguin for releasing this.

justification Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 18th, 2017
very good trick but I can't find a justification why the magician has to remove off from the table the three hidden cards, put them back on the deck, and inmediatly return the cards again to the table.

Simple is Beautiful Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 22nd, 2017
I enjoy performing this! It's a pleasure to perform something where you do exactly what you say you will with no moves and arrive at a beautiful, powerful and amazing revelation! I can sit back and enjoy the beauty and wonder of it just like the spectators. Don't miss this! Easy and powerful!

Very good single-trick download Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 22nd, 2017
This is nice, and very easy to learn and perform.
It does require something "extra" to perform it, which isn't really mentioned in the description (actually makes you think maybe a gimmick is supplied, but obviously can't be with a download-only trick). It is something that is easy to acquire, even for laymen, so I won't knock it too much for that issue, but also cannot give it a full 5 with that in mind.

I do recommend this, as it checks off all boxes that a good, simple, hard-hitting affect needs to have.

Simple... Effective Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 27th, 2017
Cards on table...
I received this gratis in return for a fair and honest review. So, here goes...

I like it.

Okay, here's some more. This is easy, really easy. It's also good. It's a quick, easy to follow effect that is difficult to figure out for a spectator. It's not going to set the world on fire but I will do it and I think it will stay in my act for some time. If you like the trailer, get it.

CANNOT BE PERFORMED WITH A BORROWED DECK Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 9th, 2018
I was looking/hoping for a streamlined version of the all-slights presentation. Instead, this is a clearly, pedantically clearly, explained version that uses a gimmick.

It will play will for laypersons and there is a discussion of how to bring the gimmick into and out of play. Still, it is not as strong as if you were able to do it instantly with someone else's cards.

Also, the Penguin listing talks about performing this with business cards. That is never explained and is unlikely to be at all practical given the method presented.

Finally, while the gimmick is not provided with this effect there is some discussion about how you can come by one, either with included in another purchase or making it yourself. And, even though I've been making them for years there was something mentioned that I hadn't tried yet and may make their preparation even easier.

That said, the presentation is clean and I like that the trick can involve multiple spectators in a way that makes them look good.
