"Dominique performed CIB to me at Le Double Fond years ago. I didn't understand how it was done at the time. Recently, Dominique gave me one (it was my birthday), and I was in complete shock!"
- Gaëtan Bloom

"The great Dominique Duvivier first showed me CIB back in 2002, in Madrid. I was more than fooled! The truth is the impossibility of this miracle haunted me for years. I simply had no explanation. It was MAGIC. And it is MAGIC!"
- Christian Engblom

"The fantastic routine, CIB, is another diabolical classic from the mind of Dominique Duvivier. The routine has it all. It's practical, self-contained. It's easy to do and it fools everyone... including Penn & Teller. Perhaps the best part is that is an extremely unusual plot that makes it stand out in any show. You will use this masterpiece for years to come!"
- Bob Kohler

"It's an extreme rarity when an entirely new effect is created and it's equally rare when an entirely new method is created. CIB combines both of these. It is not only a startling new and ingenious effect, but it also introduces an incredibly clever and utterly original method. This miracle is one of the great things to come along in the last 20 years."
- Bill Kalush

"Duvivier puts in your hands, not just a fantastic triumph, but a potent weapon that is sure to improve many of your existing routines as well."
- Dani DaOrtiz

Dominique Duvivier's new sensation!!!

Seen on TV

It fooled Penn & Teller in Penn & Teller: Fool Us.

Incredible possibilities:

Imagine the deck being mixed in all possible directions (some face up, some face down) by the magician as well as by the spectator. Magically, all the cards are now face down, except a few of them... they allow you to perform incredible revelations:

  • You can predict cards
  • Or find the four Aces
  • And reveal freely chosen cards!
Provided:
  • 2 decks of Bicycle Rider Back
  • A cloth bag
  • Instructions with many applications
  • Including Christian Engblom's method
  • Tips and bonus
Strengths:
  • A revolutionary concept
  • A secret jealously kept during more than 40 years
  • Very easy to do

CIB is a Russian doll: the more we open, the more we become crazy!

- At first, we face a high quality packaging
- Then we find ourselves with a complete kit
- Then we discover that the trick is devilish
- Then we understand the universality of the kit
- Then we notice that there is no sleight of hand at all

Bravo for this jewel and thank you for having made it available for the amateurs or pros who can perform it with great success to the amazed spectators.

Nifty effect with lots of options Report this review

I purchased this effect from another vendor as it was sold out on Penguin. I wanted to offer some insights as well as address some of the questions in the comments.

No doubt you saw this on Fool Us and that’s what brought you here to consider a purchase. If you want to know if it’s a good purchase and worth the money, I’d say yes.

What you get are cards (spectators can handle but not inspect) an ordinary sateen bag (fairly nice) and a nice bit of instruction in French and English, along with several variations and handlings.

The instructions in English are overdubbed and a bit meandering, and some of the setup instructions aren’t immediately clear from the first video but it all starts to gel by the end and I think the rather ingenious method of this trick becomes easy to understand.

Are there sleights? Not in the traditional sense, but if this is performed outside of the bag (a better, stronger option, IMHO), it will require some subtle maneuvers to hide your meaningful actions among all of the chaos that makes this effect such a head-scratcher.

Indeed, it appears the bag and pre-selected cards from the routine used on Penn & Teller were conceits to keep them from busting the trick and I think it’s suspicious when there is no illusion of choice and the magic happens out of sight.

You could, in fact, have spectators freely select cards and do the trick right out in the open, which I think could be truly devastating to lay audience.

All in all, this is a really nice effect with lots of possibilities. I would encourage you to get it and look at the alternative handlings in the instructions.

Do not wait until this trick is sold out. In being involved 70 years in magic with cards, I can honestly say this is one of the top 5 tricks ever produced. It fooled Penn & Teller and it will knock the socks off anyone watching it being performed by Duviviers beautiful talented daughter. I urge anyone interested in card magic BUY THIS. You wont be sorry and I don't work for Penguin. Its just an honest evaluation form an 81 year old magician who loves card tricks.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 9th, 2019
I love the method. But the effect is very difficult to perform. It would be improved if the amount of taper used for the double stripper method were just a bit more pronounced. I have performed it a few times and and it takes a long time to execute and then I have been successful only about half of the time.

The other thing which is very disappointing is that the bag supplied is far too small to do the the trick. Certainly much smaller than the one she used on the Penn and teller show.

If I were to attempt to add this to my permanent repertoire, I would have to have a larger bag made, and to do some work to increase the taper.

The method is really clever. It is too bad the the props supplied don't live up to it.

This is an easy yet powerful trick to to! I got this from another magic dealer but my review goes her! The video is a little hard to keep up with but I understood it. The options they give are good and can be done with or without the bag! Real easy and fun to do!

Excellent Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 19th, 2019
Ok, few things here, quite expensive for what you get but when you have done what you need to for the 5 card reveal you actually have 2 decks so one spare just in case.

I force the 5 cards making out I was going to force 1 and then decide to give 4 more cards out to 4 other people. They put them back anywhere and shuffle as much as they like and then you reveal them face up in a face down deck. Just think about this, you have your back turned and don't even see where the cards go in. Then they are shuffled and mixed up.

Magicians are fooled as a stxxxxxr deck cant tell whether the cards are face up or down.

I have only done this a handful of times but the reactions of laymen is staggering. I use the bag as I think you could give the method away if you don't.

Not a strolling trick but definitely worth saving this for the top table and bringing this out to impress.

All in all very satisfied and as its quite expensive for just another card trick not everyone will buy this so not so well known.

Not only will this baffle your audience, it is also easy and fun to perform. The first time I did it, I had no idea that it would work but it does, every time. A bit of practice and off you go. Check out the Alexandra Duvivier's performance on Fool Us.

Easy to do and English instructions available Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 20th, 2019
When I first learned the method I thought I was probably going to end up returning the trick out of concern that I wouldn't be able to reliably do it. SO GLAD I DIDN"T. With just a little practice (20-30 minutes, which was fun), I could nail it 100% of the time. (There is a tip that I didn't hear in the instructions for increasing the reliability that I can't share here. But, I posted it on the forum that purchasers have access to.) Also, the trick comes with a link with video instructions that have dubbed over English (just scroll down the page).

Not a reason to buy this stunning effect, but the happiness and cheer with which this is presented will give many a warm feetling. Very worth the $$!

Very good trick Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 17th, 2019
This is without a doubt an excellent trick. Is it a fooler ? Not sure. Penn & Teller have been fooled, yes, but to be honest, I have guessed 95% of the secret very quickly. So if you have a rough idea of how it could work, you are probably right ! However, you will still need to buy this trick because there is no way you can build your own anyway :)

Is it simple to master ? Yes and no. It will depend on your experience with similar gimmicks. You must practice a few times to get the knack and be able to do the trick with confidence and without fiddling several minutes in the bag.

Speaking of the bag, it is optional. Yes, you could do the trick without it (CIB will become CNIB !). But you'll have to be very good/clean/efficient in your handling to not flash the secret.

Are the cards examinable ? Honestly, if I was the spectator, I would say no. For a layman ? Maybe. I would give him a few cards, to let him inspect them, but honestly if I was me I would have found out the secret in a few seconds, especially if someone would have put the whole deck in my hands : such effect scream a particular method which is somehow involved here, so starting from this assumption, the secret won't remain a secret for long.

Is it worth it ? Yes, of course. It's still a miracle for a layman. And you can make such cards by yourself, so... Buy it :-)
