While there may be 1001 ways to force a card from a normal deck, each has a level of suspicion. I
personally like to tell a brief story about the 1000 ways, then demonstrate in a reveal method a few
fairly obvious ways to force cards in a routine. After that, I ask a spectator to shuffle, then lay
out the force deck "ribbon spread" and say, "Without any influence from me, and without me handling
the deck at all, please freely choose." Then I say "This is the only way I have come up with that
there can be no force of any card, a completely random and free choice". It's a very solid seller,
then move into any reveal method you choose.
These decks are great for a variety of solid card
effects, the draw back is you are good for about 1 trick per deck, per performance, two if you are
ballsy and have a clever enough remark to follow why they have freely drawn the same card twice.
That's why I own several force decks. It's a small draw back given the strength of the effect you
Great for forces but also really good for making gaffed cards with (especially Torn and Rrestored
effects) or just using as duplicate cards in effects. You can also make you're own svengali decks
using a one way force deck if you want to.
I would recommend getting at least one of these
decks to put in your magic box because I find they always come in handy.
