I am amzed at how ingenious this trick is. It is completely self-working and the secret is well kept. I, for one, use a different routine that has a greater effect, but nonetheless, I give high praise to this trick for its mentalism alure and originality.
well done! Report this review

This is a self working VERY SIMPLE trick. If you are one of those people who get impressed by the technicality of the tricks. Your only gonna go "ah man WT#@&(*$&(#@*$&*@(#*&" but nevertheless it's a creative way to use the deckcase.. you do need a bit of prep.
It's the set-up Report this review

Although the set-up is not all that hard to do, it gimmicks the trick in a way that if examined closely by a spectator, would reveal the secret. (btw the supply of specially printed Bicycle gimmicks, is actually only four gimmicks, two for each color Bicycle deck. If you botch things up easily, you might be buying the trick again just for the gimmicks Im sure penguin wont mind lol).
However, as long as everything is done casually, and the magician is sure not to keep some things in sight too long, hell be fine. The trick is great, and I think worth the risk. What is nice about this trick is that the deck in your hands at the end of the trick is completely clean, and for anyone that doesnt like the obvious dl you see Jay doing in the video (at least I dont), it has nothing to do with anything besides making the card they pick from the pack appear to be the card they thought of. You can do it any way you want.
Hard and possibly obvious set-up, but if you can pull it off, the effect is great.

Before watching the demo/explanation-video I obviously tried to figure it out by myself and got it pretty much right on the button. Which isn't too surprising unless you are assuming a huge mirror pops up behind the spectator. I would like that....Yet, I just watched the video and Sankey actually explains how to make your own gimmick. It's not that complicated and so I would like to disagree with the reviewer who said that you might have to purchase this product again. You only have to if you're lazy. On a scale from 1 to 10 I would give this a 3 or 4 as level of difficulty to make one yourself, 30 if you're clumsy.
Should take you around 10 minutes plus go to a store once.
Also, you do end up clean. It's one of those cases (no pun intended) where people could but won't want to examine anything because they are not magicians. And even if, there are still things you could do. And even if they do examine the case itself there is a fair chance they still won't get it. You can also improve Sankey's method of making the gimmick and it should be very safe.
What I also like about it is that if you do walk-around magic you don't *need* half of the justification for the postit-note, the post-it seems like a practical method cuz you're standing up. Where else write it?
(As I haven't received my shipment yet I am wondering if the explanantion was provided so I have to assemble the gimmick myself, even the first time, but I guess not since nobody mentioned it and it would also be kind of a letdown.)

JAY S. GREAT JOB ON CREATING THIS TRICK IT IS DEFINATELY ONE OF MY FAVORITES. THERE IS ONLY ONE DOWN FALL, THERE IS A LOT SET UP. EVEN THOUGH THERE IS A LOT OF SET UP IT SHOULB BE ONE OF THE TOP TEN CARD TRICKS!
Great Trick Report this review

Even though some comments refer to a long setup, its well worth the time and effort. It takes about 10-15 minutes to set up, but the effect leaves a life-long impression. I still have people come up to me on the street and ask me to do it again for them and their friends, and I can because its that portable and easy to do. Great effect Jay!
Great trick! Report this review

I use this with an Invisible deck and it stuns my audience! I think it's probably worth more like ten dollars, but the good news is you get some of the necessary supplies so you don't have to go out and buy it until it runs out so altogether I'm glad I bought it!
Great Effect! Report this review

Yes, as someone said already, there is slightly extensive set-up but it's a one time set up. Once you're done with it you´re good to go for a while.
