This is one of the strongest card routines that you can do and Jean-Pierre takes this already
incredible trick to another level. I showed this effect to my magician friend and he was completely

If you have any desire to perform a Wild Card routine then I highly recommend J.P. Vallarino's
Ultimate Wild Card. This is one of my best card magic purchases from Penguin ever! Thank you J.P.
This is an amazing routine, as beautiful as a ballet, and , by far, the best wildcard routine I have
ever seen. Be warned, however, that although the sound dubbing is clear and the camera angles are
good, the pace of the instruction is lighting fast, so you will be doing a LOT, i mean a LOT, or
replaying. Plus, the magician adds several flourishes in his routine that are not covered in the
tutorial. The flourishes are not difficult, but they serve an important function--to confuse the
This is a trick that demands quite a bit of practice and move memorization. If you
are up for it, enjoy a fantastic routine that others will likely never put effort into.
Great explanation and translation. Great camera angles. I was able to pick it up pretty fast but
what a classic trick brought back to life.
This is very visual card magic! If you are looking for something like that, this is it! It is well
worth the time and effort, and doing the work, and committing the routine to memory is very
rewarding! It is a reputation maker! I only show it to those I trust, and to those who understand
that this is a professional demonstration of magic, and that it is meant to be watched....no
grabbing of the cards...just watch and enjoy. If you can work in that kind of environment, this
trick is great! If you have a grabby, or "curious" audience, watch that they do not grab the cards
from you! You must remember to protect this work of art, and let no one expose or exploit the
secret....it's just not worth performing it for people who don't respect a magical demonstration.
The key is to stress to them, please watch and do not touch, just watch and enjoy. If they break
this condition, Stop! They do not deserve to see it!
Really nice handling of the wild card routine (or Invasion of Bodysnatchers - which is funny because
these two routines were invented in the same time on different places). Amazing idea. It does not
need a whole lot of practice (just a little bit). The instructions go through all important points
and in the end point out one really important thing which is really useful, and not just for this
Ultimate Wild card is a really beautiful effect. The video and gimmick are exactly as presented in
the promo video. I was not disappointed at all. The tutorial video is clear and teaches the
necessary sleights for the effect, which are also useful for many other card tricks. It's a routine
that will take practice to master, but hey, anything worthwhile... worth the time and effort.
I have been doing WC for over 50 years (yeah, 50) and this is the best routine ever. Easy and you
can show the backs of ALL the cards. I LOVE it!
I've owned Wild Cards for decades, yet have not performed it, because the method was obvious and
bored me. Now, that is exactly the opposite!!! This is now an amazing fooler and fun to perform!!!
