"SO STRONG!!!" -John Carey

"A jaw-dropping kicker ending." -Shaun Dunn


What starts out as a psychic demonstration ends with a standing ovation...

1. You show your spectator that you can recognize when they're thinking of a particular card.

2. Next you try to "train" them on how to do it too.

3. What happens next blows everyone away. Not only did they perfectly guess when you picked the joker... they perfectly picked EVERY SINGLE CARD you picked since the beginning of the trick!!!

This trick creates a full 3 phase experience for audiences, and just builds and builds. The kicker ending will NEVER fail to get gasps. It's that good.

Great, simple trick. Easy to learn and perform Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 25th, 2018
Anagnorasis is easier to learn and perform than the name of the trick is to pronounce and spell. It is a trick that you can use for children as long as they know the numbers from 1 to 10 and for adults.

Somewhat dissapointing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 5th, 2019
Figured out most of the trick on first watch of the trailer, and after learning the rest of the method was a bit more hopeful.
The video is well done and Patrick is excellent at explaining everything, but I havent had any reactions close to those he and others have claimed to get. It could be my presentation and patter isnt up to par, but the kicker ending just doesnt impress people that much, and most spectators are able to guess at the method after seeing it once.
I will definitely keep working on ways to make the ending seem like more of a revelation though, because the concept here is fantastic

WOW! What an amazing method! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 14th, 2018
First off let me first say that I am very much a beginner to card magic. I know some very BASIC theory and a handful of let's just call them "beginner tricks". THIS card trick is very deceptive to your audience, easy to learn for a newbie like myself and the payoff at the end is just a mind melter! While practicing the trick I even found myself fooling myself at times.

By far, the one thing I ABSOLUTELY LOVE about this trick is that you don't need a marked deck (although it can be helpful if you are accustomed to using marked decks) and there are no gimmicks you need to carry around with you. You could even use a borrowed deck as well! I LOVE IT!

Kudos to George for his very detailed tutorial as well as a few bonus handlings of the trick to make the payoff that much more effective.

Stop reading and BUY THIS NOW!

Very nice blend of drama and impromptu magid Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 26th, 2018
I love routines with a simple premise, involve the audience in a playful way (as opposed to using them as a prop), use a deceptive method and can be done impromptu.
That may sound like a lot of requirements, but I enjoy the process of writing a script and choreographing these type of routines, so theyturn into an excellent experience for the audience. Paul Curry's A Swindle of Sorts is in that spectrum, as is this routine.
This is not the type of routine that is completely selfworking. You will need to master some, albeit it simple, techniques, use your brain to remember certain things and practice to you will feel comfortable executing it. Just practice and you'll be fine.
HAving said that. The routine and premise make a lot of sense and provide you with automatic coverage, and opportunities to recover if you happen to make a mistake. Patrick explains every detail in a very clear way.
I can immediately add it to my list of strong impromptu card tricks.

Blows People Away Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 11th, 2019
Initially I was going to give 3 stars as the effect requires more practice and memorization than usual. After seeing the reaction from the spectators, I decided on 5 stars as they are blown away with their previously unknown 6th sense. There are also several new card slights presented that I have not seen before and will be useful in other effects.
Just buy it!

Very strong and fair... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 27th, 2018
This is an excellent piece of work, and it is a lot of fun from both the audience AND performer's sides.

It's taught extremely thoroughly by Patrick, and is a solid routine that can roll ahead with a borrowed deck, completely on the fly.

I'm ecstatic to have discovered this, as it is a leaner way for me to travel with a short storytelling set I've been performing about psychics. Big thanks to Patrick for sharing this one.

Elegant Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 10th, 2019
My first thought was, "Wow - this is slow". Second, "This is going to be too complicated". I bought it anyway.

I was wrong on both counts. Slow? That's mostly about me. I'm pretty new to effects, my confidence is low --- this is a great pace in real life.

Complicated? Well! No gaffs or gimmicks. No memory tricks. The setup happens right there, naked, in front of everyone and they'll never know you're doing it. The sleights are simple and well within the grasp of a novice like me.

Multiple reveals that leave everyone feeling great.

Best of all? The presentation is straight-forward, to the point, clear. I understood it first time through. Patrick is the best teacher I've encountered so far.

Absolutely worth the price!

Great impromptu effect! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 4th, 2018
There aren't many truly powerful impromptu effects without difficult slights that have this cool of an impact. Definitely worth the download! There is a little memorization and one subtly that will take some practice but beginners will readily be able to perform this as well.

It's a fun routine that departs from the usual card stuff and plays well. But I particularly like it as a set up for Gorden's Final Destination. with a "shuffle" and "cut" you're pretty much set to go into his very nice version of the clock trick.
