The method is brilliant, yet simple. I was able to perform it immediately after watching the
instructions. No complicated slights. Great effect, letting the spectator perform the magic.

This is a simple card trick that really hits big.
The video is well explained and a second
video shows 3 performances. How great is that.
Chris Rawlins is so enthusiastic that his
excitement rubs off.
What is nice is that it is a trick that brings excitement to the
spectators but also the magician as you 'easily' and dramatically wind your way to the finale.
Love Love Love it.

I learn something new with every one of these tricks I download. This one is great - gets good
reactions, and I have had lots of success with this at bars and pubs where there are groups of
females or couples that I can perform it on.

I really love this routine, and Chris' tutorial includes all of the insight needed to make this a
real heavy hitter.
Drop Card is all about spectator management & interaction, which is an
area that I definitely need work on, so I think that is one of the reasons why I like it so much. It
is fun to perform and there are always opportunities to Jazz, so I find it to be an excellent
routine for me to practice those skills.
One caveat: I was tempted to reduce the number of
stars because the promised bonus routines are simply nowhere to be found. But I kept it at 5 stars
simply because the base trick is so strong and IMHO worth the price.
Fun to perform — I love the “jazz magic” aspect to it, where you get to improvise a bit every time
to make things happen just right. Gets great reactions and seems incredibly fair; your audience
seemingly makes all of the decisions.
Not 5 stars because the deck is not examinable. However, Chris makes sure to cover the bases as to
not attract heat on the deck itself. Some manipulation required between phases, but nothing too
Love this trick. Easy to perform, almost self working. Reason for dropping one star is with my
arthritis I have trouble handing the cards as per the instructions.
This trick is easy to do with some practice. I think you can make it a relatively quick effect or
really extend the story, based on the audience and setting. Chris clearly put great thought into it
and the instructional video is very well done. That piece is often lacking in purchased effects and
he takes great time going through detail and speaks very well.
I think this is one of the very best single trick deck effects out there, along with Lennart Green's
Stolen Cards and Mark Mason's Perfect. It is fun to perform and so far has amazed everyone I have
performed it for. It has an "improvisational element" to it that makes it slightly different every
time to do which keeps things interesting and the routine is beautifully structured and very well
Great trick, easily learnt and performing it within minutes, love the reactions it gets when
performed. Great instructions within the tutorial. Brilliant a favourite already.
