GREAT TRICK, TEDIOUS EXPLANATION Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 28th, 2018
I give it 5 stars, because the effect is really good, out of proportion to the effort. No sleights. A tiny bit of speccy mgmt. Easy trick to get into, and you can continue to do other card tricks afterward with no deck switch required. Good thinking. I'll be doing this tomorrow.
The only suggestion I have is concerning the video explanation. If the explanations and comments about the various phases of the effect were repeated only TWICE, that would be enough. But constant repetition begets tediousness and outright irritation. Maybe you could have just gone through the effect and explained things as they came up, from beginning to end. Then, you could go back and add comments re: subtleties, cautions, etc. No need to do this over and over. And over. And over again. And again.
That being said - it's a GREAT trick, and congratulations for the thinking that went into it. And I'd rather the explanation be too detailed and repetitious than overly brief.

Terriffic Trick, long explanation Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 27th, 2018
I do love the trick, the thought behind it, the presentation, the easy and natural way it flows. It's a real fooler!! Chris put bunches of thought into this, and every part is important. So why the four stars? Chris, I was not able to finish the explanation. In the first few minutes, I got the idea. Not that the points made after that weren't important or needed, but the explanation sounded like the same thing over and over again. If you re-do the video (please do, it's a Great trick) cut it in half. Trust me, we get the idea. Tell the fine points once you start the real work. I thought I saw at the end there was a part that included a real two-person work-through I really want to see. But I couldn't stick through it. I'll probably watch the last third tomorrow.

I'll bet it contains some great points.

Great effect ! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 27th, 2018
This is a really great effect that uses no sleight of hand.
The instructional video is an hour long, so Chris does go through everything very thoroughly. However, the basic method only takes a few minutes to learn. It is performed just like you see in the video. Also, because of the way its accomplished, while the result is the same (4 aces), how you get there can look different from performance to performance. So if someone sees you perform it twice, it will still look very fair and not scripted.

handling can be improved even more Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 1st, 2018
This is a terrific effect, and it's made even stronger by having the spectator do most of the work.
Yes, the video explanation is a bit long, as some other people have mentioned, but being a relative novice at cards like I am, I appreciate the longer explanation. (Also, the beautiful British accent is easy on the ears. =^)
Suggestion, which I hope is not a spoiler as the ending is shown in the example video. I think the ending could be even stronger if the spectator did ALL of the card revealing themselves. For example, the spec could turn over their card, then your card, then the card on the side, and then find the hidden card in the middle of the deck. That makes it completely hands off from you and I feel a much stronger finish. Psychologically, it's them we creating the magic and not you. Other than that minor suggestion, this is a great effect, very beginner friendly, and it is thoroughly explained.

Diabolical Sweetness Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 27th, 2018
The simplicity of this effect is astonishing. With about 5 minutes of practice you will be performing feat with confidence. I'm still floored at how absolutely fair it is to the spectator, yet diabolical to the magician.

Chris Rawlins covers this effect so well that I absolutely have confidence in the performance.

The best magic is magic on the fly.. You can find any deck of cards and perform this beauty.

Video needs editing! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 31st, 2018
I expect this trick will be as good as it looks in the teaser once I get through the video, but his explanation is so ridiculously slow and repetitive and crazy-making that I can only manage about 10 minutes of it at a time.

Great Trick But Reveal is Too Reptitive Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 30th, 2018
I really like the effect but how many times does it need repeating on how to shuffle and cut the pack?

It is clean, has great impact and really easy to do.

However, this hour long video could easily be cut to 20 minutes and still have time for a coffee break :-)

So Freaking Cool Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 27th, 2018
This is by far one of the easiest most fun card tricks you can purchase. The handling is very clever, requires no slights and can be learned relatively quickly. This will work with any deck of cards. The explanation is clear, although a bit long, but Chris provides every possible explanation with great visuals along the way.

I am going to have so much fun performing this and I don't usually like card tricks. When you see the method, you will realize how natural and compelling this entire routine is I highly recommend it.

A nice idea but do we have ro market every idea for a 10 $ download? This could be in a book or tought in a lecture but not sold as a single download. Is it a magican fooler, no, its accurat what I and maybe most of u think it is. The one hour explaination is faaaar toooooo loooong.
