First of all, if you work with cards at all, I recommend every download Paul has released.

And if you normally don’t work with cards, but find yourself occasionally in the situation where somebody hands you a deck of cards and says, “You’re a magician, wow me!”, this would be a great efffect to hit them with and then drop the mic and walk away.

What is presented in the trailer is really fun and fooling, but in the video, Paul elaborates on options that I like even better. Then Dee Christopher (who’s running the camera) adds another twist that takes it in more of a mentalism direction (great stuff Dee!)

I like to do tricks sometimes where it does look like I got it wrong, only to find out I got it right. That can be really powerful. But this trick is flexible. It’s self-working and could be performed without “getting it wrong” first. Could be done in total silence, just staring at the participants and seemingly stopping at a “felt” card for each one, only to reveal that you’ve hit their cards with deadly accuracy. Spelling out the wrong cards really doesn’t have to be part of the trick.

There are no cons to this trick.

Borrowed deck if you like.

Spectator shuffles.

One spectator selects a random number.

No force of any kind.

Two spectators remember two different, random cards located at that random number position in the deck.

You really don’t know their number or the cards, but you deal right to their cards with deft accuracy.

If the deck wasn’t borrowed, they’d think you were working with a marked deck!

It’s strong enough for workers, yet easy enough for beginners!

As always, Paul’s teaching is clear and concise. He’s a fantastic and articulate presenter and teacher. I’ll use this effect for sure!

Does it work with other languages or only in English?

There are many options. No special words needed. Could even find their cards blindfolded. It’s a great effect.

Instead of spelling the name of the cards, you say that you learned this trick that was written in (number of the year) and then you count to the first two number in that year to locate the first card, then count to the second two numbed in that year to find the second card. My description lacks the character and nuance that Dee would apply, but you get the point.
