"This routine absolutely slays! It has immediately gone into my bar set but this will work in almost any setting. I love it!" -Alan Rorrison

If you saw this trick out in the real world, you'd bet anything Chris is using a fancy $500 electronic device, or some clever bluetooth operated ball.

HE'S NOT.

Imagine a secret that's so strong, you can repeat it as many times as you like, while being so simple to explain, the entire tutorial is under 30 minutes long.

Hide the Colored Ball is a secret that will drive your spectators mad. Near impossible to figure out, done well, it will easily fool even the most experienced magicians.

But that's just the beginning!

Chris Rawlins creates to PERFORM, so you can be sure this trick comes complete with a multi-phase routine that builds and builds, while also getting people emotionally involved with great mind-reading hooks and strategies.

It's complete enough for you to add to your show immediately, while giving you freedom to change literally any aspect of the routine to suit your own personality. The perfect package no matter where you are on your magical journey.

VERY DISSATISFIED! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 16th, 2017
After watching the video, paying for the download, then finding and spending time and money to get the "right" cups to use, getting the ball painted...without giving anything away...detecting the correct cup...your guess is as good as mine, and with a stack of 3 cups on top of each other...no way! Bar room muted restaurant lighting...Hmph! I've been performing for over 30 years, and just because this is an instant download, and not a lot of money, I can't let this go without saying something. Is it just me, or does the emperor have no clothes? I'm not happy about this experience.

I went out and purchased the recommended items at the recommended site. Didn't work at all even reducing the number of stacked cups to 1. I am out the money on the trick and the props!

Not Practical Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 13th, 2017
If this is detectable by the magi in the way shown on the instructions then it is equally detectable by the audience. I think this is unrealistic. Disappointed and not recommended. And yes - I tried it and yes It was obvious to the audience instantly. And I've been doing magic professionally or semi-professionally for over 40 years.

The explanation for this effect takes all of 5 seconds. The video is much more detailed, and well shot.
The mechanical explanation has to do with finding the hidden ball. HOWEVER, from the audience POV this effect has nothing to do with finding the hidden ball. It is not a feat of Russian Roulette using any round object or some other object such as your late pug's chew toy. The audience understanding is that they are participating in the magi reading/understanding/guessing what secret choice they have made or what strategy they have employed to conceal their choice. The choice is not choice of a cup, or ball, but choice of an idea or thing or philosophy. The ball is not important. It is a marker of their choice. The instructions are first make your choice, think of it, then mark it. The magician then devines the choice. Oh, wasn't there a ball which memorialized your choice so we know you didn't change your mind? It is the above routining which makes this trick brilliant. It takes this from a shell game or monte (neither of which it resembles as there are no sleights) to pure mentalism (as pure as you want it). This is a download only. Penguin may later supply a kit of cups and a ball which fit the bill, but the props are nothing but non-gimmicked sundries.

I have a chest full of bad Magic that I have purchased over the year's. But this is just ridiculous. I'm disappointed in Penguin for putting this on their site. Skip this one

Hide the Colored Ball Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 17th, 2017
I never learn. It is implied the trick is impromptu. It is not. You could do it in your home, but no normal person would have the the cups required to do the trick.
I had hoped you could do it a a coffee shop or fast food place.

The trick also has no consistent finish . Without the finish shown in the ad, the trick stops . This is not possible every performance.

The strength of the trick is to focus on desires of the spectator with the magician sensing their thoughts. The ball is used as a marker rather than the object to be found. The conversation during the stunt is probably fun in a casual setting.

While this is useful it is not ground breaking. Trying to get meaning into a magic trick is the goal for most entertaining tricks.

I felt I had wasted $8.

Good film, questionable effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 17th, 2017
I haven't had a chance to try this yet, but it seems that the lighting has to be just right in order for it to be effective. Won't work in dark clubs or table hopping situations,IMHO.
