20th Anniversary Edition

Imagine being able to name a card a spectator has chosen without looking at the cards. You just look in their eyes and name it as if you were reading their minds!

Or, imagine standing on a stage and allowing a spectator to choose a handful of cards from a jumbo deck and naming the cards he holds one at a time. They'll swear that you're even able to tell which one they're looking at.

Or, imagine being able to tell which two cards a spectator has chosen and placed into two pockets...even though he doesn't even know what they are. What's more, you'll even be able to tell which card is in which pocket.

These are not pie in the sky ideas. Every one of them is possible with the Osterlind Breakthrough Card System. It's a stacked deck but, unlike other cyclical stacks, defies detection by even the most astute spectators, with absolutely no tell-tale number or color sequences. Even a skilled mathemetician would be unable to unravel its diabolical secret, yet you'll learn it in no time flat and use it for the rest of your performing life.

Since the publication of the slim manuscript that originally introduced Richard Osterlind's system to the magic and mentalism communities, he's developed learning aids, performance tips and, most significantly, killer effects that will literally leave your audiences speechless. None of this additional information was in that little book but it's all here now in one place, ready for you to put right into your act. These are the same effects Richard Osterlind uses for corporate audiences all around the world...and now they can be yours.

It was a breakthrough in card magic in 1983...and it's only gotten better!

The best stack Report this review

This really is the best stack there is. Sure, Si Stebbins and Eight Kings are easier, but anyone who looks at one these spreads for more than 3 seconds will immediately see a pattern. Why risk it?

The BCS does not require memorization... it is cyclical, same as the aforementioned stacks... but the best part is that you can hand someone a BCS stacked deck and let them examine it for as long as they like, and I guarantee that the sequence is completely undetectable. The sequencing algorithm is so deceptive, unless you know exactly what you're looking for, you'll never see it. Really.

Assuming you don't want to take the time to learn and use a full memorized deck, the BCS is clearly the way to go. Aside from the quality of the stack, the writing and routines of Osterlind are always first-rate. If you have any interest at all in doing mentalism with playing cards, you need this.
