This trick actually is pretty good. You will learn not only the trick itself, but also a few good
moves that you can incorporate into many other routines of yours. The handling of this trick is very
natural and nothing sneaky or suspicious is done in the trick. It doesn't require any difficult
slight of hand which makes it perfect for the beginner. This trick will work all the time and your
spectators will be blown away. Perfect when done for strangers.

This is a great effect! Everyone loves their name! You can take this effect in so many different
directions. You could take the haunting creepy direction or the flattering direction. Regardless of
which direction you take it, you're guaranteed strong reactions every time! I use this one all the

I must offer my heartiest congratulations to Scoot Cram and to PenguinMagic. This effect is perfect
for those on the spot situations as long as a deck of cards is within reach. I watched the demo, but
was hesitant at first because I recognized some moves that I was familiar with. I still decided to
get it, and the reactions have been nothing short of fantastic. It also helped reinforce a valuable
principle in magic that magicians tend to forget. That is we should perform for lay people and not
for magicians. Many times we become obsessed with proving to others and ourselves how technically
efficient we are. We must remember to look at tricks from the audiences perspective and if they are
mystified, then our goal is accomplished.
Thank you Penguin. BUY THIS TRICK NOW!!!

With a solid presentation, this presents very strongly. I've tweaked it to suit my own style, but
at the core I quite like the simplicity of the method and the strength of using a spectator's own
name to find a card.
I was looking for an inpressive effect to do with a normal, unprepared, spectator-shuffled deck, and
I think I found one.
Jay Sankey's "In A Flash" is my all-time favorite card/coin trick.
But I've always felt that the deck attracted too much scrutiny. My intention now is to establish the
legitimacy of the deck by having the spectator handle a normal deck with "The Sweetest Sound," then
performing a middle trick (probably Sankey's "Identity Theft,") and then bringing back the "already
inspected deck" (of course I don't word it that explicitly) to conclude with "In A Flash."
It is such a great trick and has become one of my repertories that I perform when I am handed in a
deck of cards on the spot. The greatest part of this trick is that it has massive spectator
interactions. I did this trick in a lecture room and people kept discussing it during the lecture.
It's definitely my reputation maker. And its simplicity is perfect for beginner. The only reason
that it loses one star is because it might be obvious for magicians having a few year's experience.
Anyway, it's perfect for lay people.
This trick is soo good. Its so easy you don't even know your doing the trick. and the reactions are
the best. When doing this trick I feel I don't deserve the reactions I'm getting its just that
Scott Cram has done it again! This trick is so impromptu that my friends ask me how I do it over and
over again. Love it. Add 2 cart now!
This trick is awesome. I really liked how it can work with any name

It involves the spectator a lot, makes them feel like he/she is doing all of it. Great job by Scott,
who also wrote the book Pasteboard Presentations II, which features amazing card magic by Terry
LaGourald, I think that book is worth checking out as well.
