It's well worth it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 11th, 2005
GET THIS!

I am only 14, and I got it down in an hour. It does take a little sleight of hand, but Oz teaches it perfectly. This trick may seem impossible, but it's not! You can do it! The only downside to this trick is that if you mess up a little, then the whole trick goes down the drain, but hey, its the same with any trick.

Well-conceived Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 9th, 2010
This is a very well-conceived effect. The psychology employed is excellent. The spectators will be convinced that they've been seeing a full deck of red cards the whole time, up until the change.

This effect is clearly not for beginners. Not so much because the moves are technically difficult, but because there's a lot of timing and audience management issues that can only be handled well with experience.

The main challenges are the initial card selection... it's very limited. And the final steal and ditch can be extremely intimidating. Like I said, not technically difficult... anyone can grab some cards and stuff them into their pocket. The issue here is finding the right moment and using the right body language to make sure it isn't noticed. This part has to be done well, because the whole point of the effect is that the deck can be examined at the end. If you're spotted ditching cards, game over.

The change used here is another one that a lot of people can do, but as Oz points out, a lot do it very poorly. All of this adds up to an effect that it relatively easy to do, but actually somewhat difficult to do WELL. But after seeing the demo, I think you'll agree it's very much worth the effort.

Awesome once you master it... but hard to master Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 23rd, 2008
This one looks great when you see Oz perform it, but there are 2 things I don't like about it. The fact that the spectator can only choose a card near the top, and it has a real dirty end. The color change is really hit-and-miss. Not recommended for beginners.

It's still an amazing trick if you're skilled enough to pull it off.

Very good, but... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 12th, 2004
This trick is very good, and powerful. The other 46 people that have left comments have summed up the good points.

No one has mentioned yet that while at the end the deck is fully examinable, it is obviously not full which most people comment on fairly quickly.

Nemesis Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 19th, 2004
It's a great trick but much more difficult than most other reviewers state. Requires good control of cards for shuffling and cutting the deck. Great for amateur magicians good with cards but not for beginners.

Cool effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 21st, 2008
This was the first purchase I made on penguin (ive spent hundreds of dollars since)..

This is an amazing effect, not too difficult, teaches you audience management. And people talk about the "problem while spectator picks a card", its EASILY overcome with the suggestions on the forum. The ending is KINDA dirty but there are no gaffed cards, its great.

A great effect but not for newbies Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 8th, 2005
I purchased this effect many months ago, but I put it away because it was too difficult. Now that I have improved my card work, I set about to learn this effect again. It is a wonderful effect, I really love it and have made it part of my routine.

This is an intermediate level trick. It is not difficult, but it is not for newbies either. If you are new to cards, you should get yourself OZ's Born to Perform Card Magic dvd first. You should at least have mastered the Erdnase before you purchase this effect. If you can do an erdnase, you will find this effect to be excellent.

Great color changing deck effect! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 9th, 2004
If you liked Revolver, you'll love this. It's clean, straight-forward, and easy to do. If you're a beginner, you should buy it just for the great instructions on how to do the color change of the first card, before the rest of the deck changes color. This was developed by a fellow Penguin, so if you have any questions, he can answer them. Highly recommended!

It's nice... Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 10th, 2010
but is isn't perfect. This trick does have some flaws but overall it is a really cool colour changing deck routine. The best part is, is that you can show more than two cards in the deck unlike a lot of deck changes out there, and you can let the spectator freely choose a card. The ending is a little fishy and will take some time to get right. The spectators can examine the deck at the end but just be careful. You don't want them in possession for too long. Aside from that, this is probably one of the better looking deck switches out there, and on the plus side, it is pretty much instantly repeatable, although I don't know why you would want to.

It was just ok Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 4th, 2015
The trick itself was clever, but if you want to perform this to friends you have to be very careful.

It was ok but I will never use it.
