Coolest Deck Ever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 28th, 2012
I have been buying trick decks since I was about 9 years old and am now in my 40's. I don't know how this method has slipped by me but wow, this is very cool. I recently bought the Grail and it is pretty neat but it involves doing math in my head and while it is simple math who needs that extra presure when you are trying to have some fun with a trick. One of the grail reviewers said to just get this deck so I did and I am very pleased. The grail will be going on the shelf and this is my favorite ACAN deck by far. Keep the cool stuff coming.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.

this is very very easy to perform and use. beautiful design here. a clean cut prediction with 0 switches sleights, or controls. pure magic. can be performed for one or a 100 people. I open all my shows with this now. grab this if you're tired of stupid gimmicks you bought and dumb tricks you know you're never going to perform.believe me, like 50-60% of the stuff out there is like that.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
One of the best forcing decks or ACAAN effects around Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 3rd, 2016
This forcing deck is similar to and uses the same principle as the Mind Power deck. So which one do you need? Well, it depends. Both decks take the smallest bit of spectator management. If you want to do a card revelation or ACAAN routine without any fishing or messing around, then this deck is self-working and foolproof. If you want to play Derren Brown and drag out the suspense before revealing the selected card, with a small bit of work on your part, then the Mind Power deck is your pick. I have both, not only because I like collecting gimmicked decks but also so that I can mix things up. A routine using either deck will make an incredible opener or closer to your mentalism show.
Oh, one more thing. When I'm feeling really bored and want to challenge myself, I do a routine using a Koran Deck, which is the precursor gimmicked deck that can't be shown as freely as the Mastermind or Mind Power decks. But that's just showing off on my part. Cardicians who know how to do 100 different card forces with an ordinary pack of cards will roll their eyes or laugh because they look down at simpleton mentalists using gimmicked decks. While they do that and argue whether the dribble force is better than the riffle force, you'll be watching your audience's jaws drop on the floor. That's one of the things I love about mentalism using cards. You don't have to do some crazy knuckle-busting sleight to wow people. Make it easy on yourself and concentrate on your performance.
In summary, you'll love the Mastermind deck and never use a one-way forcing deck again.

Well made and with a little thought an excellent routine can be implemented using these cards.
A True Classic! Report this review

You can be assured this is a show stopper. Watch the effect on YouTube. You can learn it as fast as you read the instructions. Self working, instant reset, leaves you free to do the talking and let the trick work itself. A work of art ...
An Absolutely Killer Effect Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 30th, 2014
When I choose to perform mentalism at a gig, I use Mastermind as my closing effect, it is an incredibly strong closer.
I'll mail an envelope to my customer with instruction written on a smaller envelope inside stating: "DO NOT OPEN; bring this envelope with you to the show."
A volunteer is chosen, the Mastermind deck is spread face up to show that the cards are all different. The deck is then turned face down, shuffled any number of times, then spread out on the table. A participant is asked to touch any card. He is offered to change his mind any number of times until he feels that he's made a completely free choice of a card.
Then I turn the rest of the deck face up again and spread them out. I now lift his face down select card, showing it only to him without even looking at it myself. I ask him to memorize his card and then I place it back on the table, face down. Now he's told to look at the rest of the face up deck to assure that there are no duplicates to his selected card.
I now ask that the envelope be opened and for the volunteer to read the prediction. The participant chokes on his words as he reads that my prediction matches his selection! I lift his chosen card and appear shocked myself at seeing it, then I show it to the audience.
I'm now walking on water!
Thank you, Christopher Kenworthey, for sharing this brilliant masterpiece with the magic community.

Once you get used to handling these cards naturally, it's a real fooler.
I'll set the envelope with the prediction card on the table before I do anything, but not refer to it (yet).
You can do all kinds of stuff...have one person point to one half of the deck (remove the excess), have another point to another half of the deck (likewise) and have the third pull out any of the remaining cards with their finger. You reveal the card they freely chose and then tell them you made a prediction earlier in the day and would they please open the envelope...
It gets a bigger reaction than I anticipate almost every time!
Play with it and you'll find a dozen ways to use this...including a chosen card at any number.
No rough/smooth, no stripped cards. It's pretty cool! No, they can't handle the cards, but they never ask to, it's that honestly portrayed.
Nice Card Force, Great Deck Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 9th, 2012
I like it, it works perfectly for ACAAN and with Audience Management you will get it perfectly.
But I think there are other decks which can do the same.. so yeah I like a lot the idea anyway.. its a very easy card force.. =)

This is a beautiful effect and deck, absolutely easy to use and a killer with spectators. The only downside is that the deck isn't examinable, so be prepared to do a deck switch if you want to do more card magic. I use Mastermind as an opener.
