1. This trick fools everyone.
2. Whatever you think the secret is, it's better than that.

First, you have your spectator MERELY THINK of a number, then SECRETLY deal that number of cards.

Second, you have her FREELY choose ANY ONE of those cards and LOSE IT IN THE DECK, and then! Just so you have no clue, you have her shuffle and lose the packet in the pack as well.

CLIMAX #1
As hopelessly fair as that sounds, you're able to READ HER MIND and divine the identity of the card!

CLIMAX #2
With a sweet spin move, a packet of cards flies out of the pack... a packet which HAPPENS to contain EXACTLY the number they had originally thought of.

CLIMAX #3
When they're done counting the cards of the packet, they turn over the top card, AND IT'S THEIR EXACT CARD.

If you need a big finale for your card set, look no further. Counter Intuitive fools everybody, and DOES NOT require complicated sleight-of-hand OR crazy stacked deck work. YOU WILL LOVE the brilliant secret.

Love the self-working aspect to Counter Intuitive. There's very little handling with Cameron's methods.

The trick itself is a double punch and I feel it would play best in a group setting.

The real treat is the explanation/instruction. Cameron Francis is one of the best instructors I have seen on Penguin'g digital library tricks. He is methodically clearly spoken, and takes time to show multiple presentations.

WELL DONE. Do yourself and BUY THIS.

CAMERON'S ON FIRE!!! Report this review

I am honestly not one for card tricks these days, HOWEVER! I love Cameron's work and Penguin's Exclusive Releases so of course I had to pick this one up. I finally got to it today and am blown away at how self working this really is with very very minimal memory if any at all to know. The setup is so easy and fast it can be done with any shuffled deck and IMHO is a great way to get the spectators involved. I have Position Impossible and the reactions are amazing. Counter Intuitive is amazing as well but if I want something that is more impromptu, a free - fair selection between the number they chose the reactions play hard with Counter Intuitive!!!

You WILL get amazing reactions
You WILL use this
This IS a worker
What you SEE is What YOU will do... that is, if you hit ADD TO CART! :)

5/5 - Hands down, great work Cameron!
Thanks for giving me a new go to card effect with any deck at any time i have on me. I will be using this for years to come and you will too!

Ladies and gentleman,
Trust me, buy this! There is just no way you can not like this trick! So much room open to put your personality into this. Most of all it's a fun simple method and you will fool yourself doing this. You can perform this on the fly as part of your other routines. This type of tricks are very entertaining for lay people. Buy it! Also, Cameron Francis is a wonderful teacher.

This trick is everything a card trick should be and then some. I practiced this for about an hour and proceeded to blow a few minds. I normally don't take a chance on doing something for people that quickly, but this was different. The video explains things extremely well, it's very easy for something of this magnitude. I would have paid double for this trick. I will use this over and over. It's a keeper.

Much easier than I expected Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 9th, 2018
When I first saw the trailer for this trick, I thought there would be a lot of memorization or a stack or something complicated that I would never really use. Nope. This trick couldn’t be more simple. The video is around 30 minutes with about 10 minutes of performance at the beginning. Then he explains the sleight of hand and the sleight free methods. They are pretty much the same method, just different ways of performing it. I think the sleight free method might even be a better trick. If you learn this effect and work on a presentation that works for you, you’ll have a hard hitting, multi phase card trick.

This is so fair yet so deceptive even with a borrowed deck. A real fooler not just for lay audiences but you will be able to stump Magicians if you so desire. Cameron Francis does an amazing job of teaching this ungimmicked trick that will blown you away with its ease. Not only will you be taught the version seen in the trailer which involves a 'minimal' sleight, really nothing complicated but two self-working versions with no slights required. All three are exceptional in their own right, you can pick the one that is right for you and your specific style. This can easily be performed in a strolling environment - bar, restaurant, street … or sitting at a table parlour style. I performed this for my wife minutes after learning it and fooled her - she is always on to me having a basic knowledge of magic. Great trick, great price, amazing potential.

Fantastic! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 9th, 2018
This is great, it feels like any card at any number with a combination of skill and mind reading. And here’s the kicker, it’s nearly effortless. I can’t think of a trick in recent memory that is so easy and so powerful.

Outstanding Cameron - Perfect normal deck trick! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 9th, 2018
Cameron Francis just never disappoints me! This is another great REGULAR deck effect from him. It looks and works just like int he trailer. There "sleight" version is only called that because for a moment you need to hold a regular break. We can ALL do that - even a 7 year old beginner! Cameron even teaches it. OK - the effect is a blockbuster for an audience. And a fooler for magicians. You'll love it. Now - we all sort of have a bias for buying a "trick" instead of a download. The box arrives, we grab the deck and look for the gaff . . . Forget it! This is BETTER! Buy it!

Beautifully Simple Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 9th, 2018
This is a great card effect. Another jaw dropper. The tutorial is excellent. Each step is clearly explained, and you can start performing the effect almost immediately. It is a beautiful effect and extremely simple to perform especially the self-working version. I wish there were more stars to give it so I declare it to be a six star effect. I've got the flu, but this effect actually makes me feel better.
