Beyond Epic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 19th, 2010
I've been using ESP Cards for years. Zenner decks need to look simple because the premise is that they are used for research and this is why I preferred a non-marked set until now. These ESP cards look innocent with a solid color on the back ( red or black ). There is no intricate back design to hide anything, yet an ingenious method for knowing what symbol a spectator has chosen is there. The box looks like something a paranormal investigator would use. the bonuses make this an over the top purchase for me.
Within minutes after opening the package I knew I had something that would be used in my working routine. That same day I used them to perform a thought reading with a prediction finish using the gold envelopes supplied and it absolutely killed. With the all bonuses there are endless possibilities.
Here are a few things not detailed in the description. I also received 2 gold envelopes, a card with all 5 symbols printed on it, and a card with the zodiac signs. This is in addition to the box ( which also has all 5 symbols on it ), gaffed cards and 8 routines. The bonuses make this an over the top purchase for me. Just one of the routines mentioned in the book can sell for $25. I felt that I received far more than I paid for. For me this is an entire routine for close up and stage that fits in my pocket.
You only need five cards Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 7th, 2014
Thanks to this ESP deck, I now only use 5 cards to perform ESP miracles.
The tricks in the book are good but make no mistake...most of them are for seasoned magicians.
I do not use ANY of the tricks that came in the book so you may ask yourself why is it worth the money then? Well, first, you do learn how to use the deck (and of course the marking system which is going to make you laugh at how brilliant it is) and the tricks in the book will open the ideas in your brain for your own.
Without giving anything away, here is how I use this trick: I only use the 5 cards (for each symbol) and the "prediction" cards. I do my tricks on the fly meaning it's all impromptu - the spectators are the only ones that ever touch the cards. That right there should give you an idea on how good this trick is.
Also be sure to check out "The door" it's a great companion to this trick (but I would perform the door first to get them in the magic zone so you can get away with highway robbery during this one...no that you'll have to, but it's just fun to...little trick I learned from Garret Thomas himself).
I have been on a roll with my purchases from penguin as of late.
Excellent Product Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 11th, 2013
These are very good and I am glad Penguin imported them all the way from the UK. Let me explain what is so great.
Other ESP decks have marking systems that are extremely unlikely for audience to find. However, other decks I saw have complex designs and spectators just assume there are markings they can't find. The Beyond ESP deck has such a simple design that people often assume the cards can not be marked. That is what makes this deck so special.
For the sake of saving money on replacements, it would be nice to have the option to only buy the deck itself (without the booklet).
Top Quality All Around Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 15th, 2012
The deck has a great "out of the box" feel. The cards are study and will take years of abuse. Another pleasantry is that the cards come pre-buffed - the edges are smooth as glass.
The marking system takes a bit of work to get 100% accuracy and it's doubtful that it would ever be noticed. W/O my glasses I can distinguish the cards, but it took a couple of days of drills before I felt confident.
The effects in the instruction book go from simple to complex and my booklet had a typo (it listed 4 DF cards instead of 2), but a quick email to the author cleared this up and he couldn't be more helpful. This only affected a small number number of booklets and none of the effects use more than 2 DF cards.
So, a great deck, nice people to work with, and a very satisfied customer.

The marking system is perfect. It's so subtle, nobody could possibly detect it. When I first opened the box, I stared at the backs for a solid five minutes trying to figure it out and I couldn't. The marking is so subtle, that at first I had a hard time reading it. Now that I've gotten used to it, though, it's very easy. It's a lot of fun. You start to feel like you really do have ESP.
Mentalism meets card tricks Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 12th, 2014
I can't say enough good things about this. High quality cards, two full sets! Full gloss, well made instructions that include ideas from the top minds in mentalism. This is a mentalist routine all packed in one box! Here is my video review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OotcnpnpuEc
Good for learning . . . Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 5th, 2014
I got this as a supplement to another ESP deck I have, I was hoping to get some new ideas, and I did. I could have given 3 stars and felt the same about this set, as my other is of better quality. Material and artwork.
However, for the cost, the learning and material provided this is a good product and unless you're already into this genre, it's a good set!

Brilliant! Report this review

By a quick lock, this seems to be one of the most plain ESP decks you can get. Still it hides an unbelievable clever and simple secret at the back of the cards that's impossible to figure out without knowing the system.

I was completely impressed with the subtlety used in this deck. So clever. You can be a psychic, hypnotist, magician, mentalist, or just have unmatched persuasion skills using these ESP Cards.

this is a great deck. It is impossible for anyone to suspect a thing unless you know the secret. I highly recommend this deck.
