Everyone makes mistakes. Even you.... but that day, is not today.

Whether you want to shut down a heckler, or to take your audience on an emotional rollercoaster, Fine Print is a ticking time bomb. Just slip one of the gimmicks into your deck (replace your regular ace of spades) and you're ready to go. With this new deluxe version, you get FOURTEEN gimmicks, in red and blue bicycle back, with FOUR different reveals, so unless you're giving them away as souvenirs, these will last a LONG time.

Nick Locapo will teach you FIVE full routines, so you'll be all set even if you've never done a card trick before in your life. Of course, if you already know a million card tricks you'll be happy to know you can end almost any card revelation with Fine Print.

And if you're one of those weirdos who likes to repeat tricks for the same audience, or if you're a worker who performs for very nearby audiences (tables) you can easily swap out aces for different outcomes.

This is a must have gimmick for any card magician.

"I'm gonna come right out and say it, I hate magicians. They're always making you look dumb in front of your friends, and just when you think you've gotten the better of one, they make you look even dumber. Smug bastards. After years of mental abuse from my buddy Jeff hey-look-at-me Oaks, I was SO ready to laugh in his face, like 'hahhhhh! you finally screwed up, idiot!!! You suck, Jeff!!!!'... when he smiled from ear to ear and asked if I had ever read the fine print on the ace of spades. I hate magic, and I hate you, Jeff." -Kenny Strassel, Pittsburgh PA

Great Trick and great download Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 5th, 2018
This has been out of print for a long time. Get them now before Bicycle changes the rules again.
This is a wonderful little offbeat piece to have in your arsenal. It will get reactions far above what you might expect if you just use it as a prediction. If you would like to use it for a more advanced routine the 45 minute teaching by Nick is really good and provides some excellent advice.
If you would like to see a great routine that has been done thousands of times (literally tens of thousands) by its creator. Just look up Terry Ward's lecture and you will find a real worker of a routine and many other really good pieces of magic. The Terry Ward lecture is a great lecture and he has likely performed more "shows" than almost any other magician in the world. He is worth listening to.

Great enhancement Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 5th, 2018
This is a great enhancement to many card tricks involving a forced card. Introduces a false magician fail that is like salt on french fries, mayonnaise on salad or cheese in a burger. So worth it.

Fine Print Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 5th, 2019
I've been using Fine Print for some time now and I love it. Great motivation to learn several different forces, also.

One of the keys to doing this trick (and virtually all others) well is to not rush through it (Vernon's advice in general). For magic effects to hit hard, there needs to be suspense, and suspense is built by anticipation which takes time. I see a lot of trailers where magicians are rushing through tricks at the speed of light and/or talking as fast as is humanly possible and I think this is done to keep spectators from thinking too much and asking inconvenient questions. Verbal misdirection out of control, if you will. Try a little piece of slow - that will catch spectators off guard since everyone is talking/presenting so fast these days. This will work in your favor. Fine Print is a great trick partially because it is a natural for the slow building of suspense. Let the spectators slowly discover the "secret" to Fine Print on their own - with a little coaxing, if necessary.

I used this as an out not long ago (I had forgotten that I had placed one of the Fine Print cards under my close-up mat). It had a red back and I was using a blue deck, but that did not take away from the effect at all. Really good solution/reaction to the "magician-in-trouble" scenario. And I WAS in trouble for just a couple of seconds, when I remembered that the perfect out was right in front of me.

Here's one way to play it that I've found to be very effective. The spectator who chose the card will, of course, say that the Fine Print card is not her card. I pass it around the table and ask all present, "Did you see her card? Are you sure that's not it?" By the time it gets around the table, someone will likely have discovered the "fine print" and that quickly becomes a big climax.

If no one discovers the "fine print" as it is being passed around, that is even better. That is when I use Nick's line, "Have you ever noticed the fine print on the back of the Aces of Spades?" An even greater reaction at that point!

Thanks to Jay and the folks at Penguin for carrying this fine product and for your efforts at convincing the USPCC to make these very special cards. This a very effective trick. Do not let its simplicity fool you. It's a winner! Don't miss out on the fun. The pain to glory ratio is in your favor big-time!!! Very little work to get great reactions!!!

Simple, but oh so useful, card utilty Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 6th, 2022
When you buy Fine Print, you'll know exactly what it is, nothing more, nothing less. But it's one of those things that you should always have on hand as a smart utility gimmick, whether your do card tricks or mentalism. It's simple, the gaffe cards are perfect, and you'll use it. And spectators will enjoy it. For $20, it's a no-brainer.

Excellent "Insurance" Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 14th, 2021
A simple, yet entertaining effect that audiences love.
Suitable for the absolute beginner.
Pros will appreciate not having to carry around a "policy".

Only con is while you receive a good amount of gimmicks, the price is slightly high, in my opinion.

Still, worth the purchase, especially for those beginning their magic journey.

So much with so little! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 1st, 2021
For what little you get, there is so much you can do with it! Nick's teaching is spot on as always! I received this for free during the Black Friday sale and have been having so much fun with it. There is nothing better than someone thinking you completely screwed up a trick, only to find out you really didn't!

Super easy to do as well!
