Ultimate Wild Card Review Report this review

This is one of the strongest card routines that you can do and Jean-Pierre takes this already incredible trick to another level. I showed this effect to my magician friend and he was completely blown away.

This is very visual card magic! If you are looking for something like that, this is it! It is well worth the time and effort, and doing the work, and committing the routine to memory is very rewarding! It is a reputation maker! I only show it to those I trust, and to those who understand that this is a professional demonstration of magic, and that it is meant to be watched....no grabbing of the cards...just watch and enjoy. If you can work in that kind of environment, this trick is great! If you have a grabby, or "curious" audience, watch that they do not grab the cards from you! You must remember to protect this work of art, and let no one expose or exploit the secret....it's just not worth performing it for people who don't respect a magical demonstration. The key is to stress to them, please watch and do not touch, just watch and enjoy. If they break this condition, Stop! They do not deserve to see it!

the visualization of beautiful poetry Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 3rd, 2013
I can't understand for the life of me why Penguin doesn't have a demo for this marvelous take on the classic wild card plot. WOW!!! this thing is BEAUTIFUL. You will fry the laymen brain and resurrect a magi's belief in the impossible. Not overly difficult, mostly requires a good memory. WOW!!!, just WOW!!!!!! If you could SEE poetry it would look like this. If you could HEAR poetry it would be the sound of, or stunned silence, of your spectators after witnessing this artful demonstration of cardistry. WOW!!! just WOW!!!!!!!

So Far My Favorite Wildcard Routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 8th, 2020
Simply masterful. This is the go to card effect to do once the audience is primed.

Think of a sample act in a program ending with this effect.

Establish a number of miracles with the equivalent of borrowed deck, and then after a cold deck switch to a gimmicked deck routine with an impossible outcome (and another cold deck switch to a normal deck) have an audience member examine and shuffle the cards and deal nine cards on the table. (This will enforce the psychology there in no longer any point in examining the cards whatever you did to make the magic has happened and the cards are normal again) Pick up the nine cards perform a packet switch and move the deck aside. Go into the Ultimate Wild Card Routine

It will be a reputation maker.

The effect is so powerful the heat is going to be on the cards. So reducing the level of scrutiny, by priming the audience first is paramount for success in my opinion.

Perform another packet switch and end the act clean.

Surgeon General Warning: Learning cold deck and packet switches will be lethal to your audiences.

Spectacular! Report this review

This is a mind-blowing effect with clear and precise video instruction on how to perform it. The moves are relatively simple, but it takes some practice to get the sequence of changes memorized and mastered. Highly recommended!

The routine that will kick your behind! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 3rd, 2018
This is an amazing routine, as beautiful as a ballet, and , by far, the best wildcard routine I have ever seen. Be warned, however, that although the sound dubbing is clear and the camera angles are good, the pace of the instruction is lighting fast, so you will be doing a LOT, i mean a LOT, or replaying. Plus, the magician adds several flourishes in his routine that are not covered in the tutorial. The flourishes are not difficult, but they serve an important function--to confuse the brain.

This is a trick that demands quite a bit of practice and move memorization. If you are up for it, enjoy a fantastic routine that others will likely never put effort into.

Great explanation and translation. Great camera angles. I was able to pick it up pretty fast but what a classic trick brought back to life.
