Triumph is a classic of magic. But in Michael's hands it becomes a jaw-dropping miracle.

A chosen card is hopelessly lost in a completely shuffled and VERY messed up deck. At the snap of your fingers, the entire deck rights itself except one card, upside down in the deck -- their chosen card!

But that's not all....

The kicker that destroys magicians is that when you spread the half of the cards above the chosen card, it's all the black cards, and the cards below the chosen card are all the red cards!

It's an out of this world Triumph effect that absolutely kills.

Nice effect, but not worth the cost, especially given the lack of detail in the video. It rushes through the key moves with inadequate explanation of what is being done and why. The explanation speaks of "this packet" and "that packet" without explaining which packet and where the selected card is and what is being reversed, etc. Takes many repeats to figure out what he means. There needs to be a supplement explaining where the selected card is and which packet goes where.

Great effect, poor instruction Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2018
I like this effect. I just feel that Michael didn't do the instruction justice. If you decide to get this, be prepared to look elsewhere to get better and more detailed descriptions of how to best perform the Zarrow shuffle. He breezes right through it and does a pretty sloppy rendition. You'll want to do better on both the Zarrow and suitable false cuts than Michael did in this effect. What you are getting here is simply the description of necessary moves. How to get there is up to you.

overall a good effect but not sufficiently explained and placed in a workable order. it is a nice addition to triumph and/or red&black separation- but needed more of a set-up phase and more detailed explanation of Zarrow shuffle- again a good trick but this methodology is more for someone intimately familiar with both triumph and red&black separation

The explanation sucks. He does a terrible job of teaching or demonstrating
the moves. He goes too fast. And it is as if you already know and he is just going over it one more time. Don’t waste your money. I did again

Great Trick- Easy to Learn Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 6th, 2019
I did not have a hard time understanding the trick. Yes, I watched the video a couple times, but it's pretty straight forward. As far as the other reviews about him not going into an explanation on false shuffles, like he said, that would be a video on its own. The trick can be performed without them just as easy.

Excellent Trick, Well Worth it!

Two Effects In One Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 27th, 2018
A quick and simple take on the triumph effect. Not only does Michael show you how to find the selected card, but he also adds a "double whammy" by showing a color separation. He called it his Triumph with an Out of the World finish, and rightly so.

Triumphant Return is a direct, surprising and easily performed effect. It does take some preparation, but you could get ready in front of your audience. Alternatively, since this uses a regular deck, you could perform this as an opener and continue to use the deck for your next card effects.

Michael also reminds us with good advice: as magicians, it's a good idea to build your toolbox of moves, and that will help you become a better magician. In learning more "tools". you'll be able to use the appropriate "tool" for your effects.

As a weekend magician, finding easy to learn high impact tricks to perform for family and friends is sometimes tough. This one is fun and is really two effects in one.

Recommended!

Good thinking behind a Classic, not my cup of tea. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 21st, 2020
Mr. Kaminskas has thought thru the effect from the beginning to the end results. The effect works well for him. New methods of Vernon Classics are sometimes very hard to improve upon. In this case, the basic original theme is there, just not enough substance for me.

Triumphant... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 18th, 2020
I love this routine. Michael and I talk from time to time and I have been a fan since before he published Miracle Material, his first book. This a nice combination of two excellent tricks that do not require a lot of finesse to get both effects into play. I think this is a great way to get more bang for your buck by using two BIG powerhouse effects in one quick, fun routine. Well done Michael.

Good effect, poor instructions + performance Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 14th, 2020
I can see why the effect trailer does not include a performance video. The method would be completely transparent not because it is easy to guess but simply because Michael does not know how to perform it! There is no other way to explain it - his sleight of hand is absolutely awful and I doubt he ever does this trick to real spectators. This, naturally, hindered the instructions with Michael blundering on the way and teaching badly purely because he does not know how to do it! I feel if he got better at this and went out and performed it; his teaching would become more natural and he would understand the effect better.
