Effect- A card is selected through a process and taken out of the deck. All of the other cards are shown to be blank except for their thought of card.
I will have to admit that I was a slight bit disappointed with the method. With that said, it still fooled me. This uses a very old principle that you already know (some may be scared to use it), but applied and dressed up in a way that not many people would pick up on, even a few magicians. It isn't as clean as the ad makes it sound, but it still appears super fair to the spectator and looks legit to them. It's extremely easy to perform, but you can't have anyone behind you which may be a problem in some cases, but easily managed.
The DVD is very well produced and attractive. No complaints. Oz Pearlman is a great teacher and lets you in on the subtleties that make this more convincing to the spectators. There are 2 variations taught which are the basic handling and the advanced handling by Luke Jermay. I saw flaws in both so I combined them both so that they made more sense (you had to remove cards which was a drag) and eliminated a lot of procedure. There are also a ton of performances throughout the DVD and while I applaud the effort, Oz is a very bad performer. A problem with DVDs and younger magicians is that they'll copy the performers directly. Oz is very technically skilled, but his acting and presentation is weak in my opinion.
Overall, this is a solid product and I recommend it.
