"Paul Gordon is fast becoming my favorite card guy." -Jose Buevo

"Paul Gordon is an excellent teacher." -Dave Radis

"Paul is a wonderful teacher (this I already know from attending his live lecture)" -Michael Paul

Paul Gordon is known for incredibly clever trick design. But this one may be his best yet.

All the important stuff is done by your spectators while your head is turned, which makes ANY trick mind boggling.

A card is chosen from a small pile. Not only are you able to guess it by reading your spectator's mind, but the kicker reveals it's the ONLY CARD OF ITS KIND IN THE PACK.

Highly recommended.

This is a crusher of an effect by Paul Gordon, which takes an old key card method to improved heights. I can already see that the reactions are going to be phenomenal with Final Destination. It is so extremley easy to perform, and at the finish, you are absolutely clean and everything is examinable.

Do yourelf a favor and buy this one. Paul does a great job teaching this and you'll be performing in about 3 minutes.

Fantastic with a BONUS Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 7th, 2018
The trick is great and I appreciate Paul always making it clear and FAST! I do not need a 2 hour video for a card trick and Paul delivers without fluff. VERY VALUABLE in this video is a part where Paul explains how he does a very easy and clean cull of the deck in front of spectators. He uses a simple OTHER trick he TEACHES here to appear to do the #2 trick but in doing so sets the MAIN TRICK you see here up! The cull and logic behind it will work for any card magician for many other situations. I'd say that training whole invisible in the description is worth five times the price of this download even without the great trick it is intended to sell. Just buy this one gang!

Great self-worker! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 7th, 2018
I love a good self-working effect, and this one is GREAT!

There are really only a few things that you need to know about this before purchasing.

1. You'll love it
2. No sleight of hand
3. Self-working


I mean, seriously, at this price you can't go wrong. It's not like you'll find the sleights to be too difficult, because there aren't any.

All hail Paul Gordon! Report this review

This is a beauty - Paul Gordon delivers a new variation on a classic routine. As what is largely a self-worker Gordon also includes instructions on how set the deck in front of spectators, and he really makes it look easy. The routine itself is a big fooler, where a spectator's random choice always results in the correct card. I can only hope to present as calm and cool as Gordon, because if I can this will be an absolute winner.

Nice!

Repurposing something old into something new Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 7th, 2018
Paul does an excellent job of taking a well-known routine and spinning it into something of his own. If you're an experienced magician, you may or may not recognize this, even if you already know the original routine. That's because Paul has made some changes to it that make it indistinguishable to the prior traditional routine. In this way, this trick can be successful in fooling some magicians... and definitely all laymen.

What is really, really cool about this trick is that Paul shows you a great way to set this up right in front of your spectators without them even knowing it... by doing another trick! That's right! Consider this (as I did) a bonus! This IMPROMPTU trick can truly be done with any shuffled deck and no gimmicks. The way you set this up by performing this other trick is simple but genius!

As usual, Paul does a great job teaching this. I had a little hard time following here or there, but I think that might be because I'm just really tired right now... so I won't penalize him for that.

To be honest, the trick itself, I was going to give this 4 or 4.5 stars because, even though it is well taught, to me it isn't extremely exciting enough to get a "perfect score" of 5 stars. HOWEVER, the fact that this is done with a truly shuffled borrowed deck with no gimmicks and is set up right in front of your spectators makes this a powerful impromptu trick. And to do the setup while doing a different trick first (consider this a 2-for-1) is just a great kicker bonus.

So, Mr. Gordon, you get 5 stars from me. Great job!

Really Fun Report this review

This a very fun routine, Paul Gordon always perks my attention and this was worth the attention. Great for improvisers or comedic magicians in general. Short video worth the price

Never Disappoints Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 25th, 2018
Another great trick by Paul Gordon. Easy to learn and easy to do. The easy-to-give directions makes it great for when I'm doing bar magic (doing magic and making cocktails at same time). I've also done it a few times at parties with borrowed decks with great response. Highly recommend it.

Great worker for beginners and vets alike Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 23rd, 2018
Cons: None
Pros: Easy to do, self working, no sleight of hand, no gimmicks

Beginners will love how easy this is to pull off, and workers will love this as a great option where the same trick can be done for multiple people with different endings. Great instruction and Paul even provides a way to reset the deck in front of spectators. An added bonus is that he teaches a trick to do while getting the deck reset.

This one is easy to learn, fast to pick up, and involves no gimmicks or sleight of hand. Sometimes the simple tricks are the best ones.

Any of Mr Gordon's releases should be a part of every magi's collection without a doubt or question ! F .D. bears cleaver characteristic of Mr Gordon's ingenious creations !I felt the key concept point of the effect should have been repeated & expounded upon as I had to decipher the crucial point of the effects logic in terms of sequential order as oppose to it being presented a few times !also camera close up shots should have been tighter ! But thank goodness a few drinks of blended whiskey cleared & unraveled everything up ! !Get this gem & every project Mr Gordon shares out on the market !!!

Paul is one of the best magic teachers out there Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 21st, 2018
I like this trick more for Paul Gordon's instruction than the trick itself. It's a great effect, of course, but the real value here is how Paul goes over all of the considerations, nuances, and variations of the performance. Not very many teachers do this, but Paul does. You come away from this video not just learning the effect, but also the knowledge and skill to be a better performer in general. I will say that this specific effect is pretty good, but it does require some setup - again, Paul covers how to do that if you need to use a borrowed deck or complete it in front of the spectators. The kicker at the end of the effect - showing the uniqueness of the chosen card - is what elevates the trick beyond the basic "find the chosen card" narrative.
