A circle is drawn on the cellophane of a card box. The circle is shown to your spectator. In this circle, you draw one card; this card will be your SECRET PREDICTION.

The deck is removed from the card case. The case is placed face down to one side.

The cards are dealt FACE UP one at a time. Your spectator is asked to stop on ANY CARD they like. They really can stop ANYWHERE. The card box is flipped over. Drawn, smack bang in the middle of the circle is the exact card they STOPPED ON.

This sounds too good to be true. It gets better.

RESETS IN 2 SECONDS.

CAN BE REPEATED WITH A DIFFERENT OUTCOME.

SELF-WORKING.

BRILLIANT METHOD.

FOURTUNATE is a self-contained, little miracle

I got Fourtunate (Fortunate) by David Jonathan and Mark Mason. It is actually pretty cool. I don't think it is as strong as the physical card, but it appears more organic and spur of the moment, which appeals to me. The only question I can see being raised against it is, "Why would you write on the box?" well, as for the classic version, "Why would you have a card in an envelope in your wallet?". You just do. Method-wise, low tech, self contained, and James Bondian, just what I like to play with. Mark's video instructions explain everything and is perfect for the product.

Sorry, I seldom write negative reviews, but I got very disappointed with this. I had high expectations for this gimmick. I thought I would receive some sort of ‘intelligent deck’ (as Fortuity or as Position Impossible, for example, for those who know it), but not. Actually you don’t receive any deck, but some cards to accomplish an old old forcing method. The box gimmick itself brings a new idea, but is fragile. Marc on the tutorial states that it is not that fragile, but it actually is, once it involves the cellophane. And there’s nothing more fragile than a cellophane in a card box. There is a certain corner of the card box that can ruin the gimmick easily and permanently, even by the most careful magician. Also, you can’t perform this too close from the spectator, as they may notice something ‘weird’ about the box, exactly on the main spot, the drawn circle area. Also, the lightning conditions can give away the secret.
If one is new to magic and is interested in the multiple out prediction plot, I could highly recommend other effects as The Gift, from Angelo Carbone, Glassandra by Stefan Olschewsky, Number 4 Envelope by Blake Vogt, The Force Wallet by Vortex Magic and many others. If the interest is in drawing predictions, I’d suggest PrediChange by Yonel Arcade, Ink and Tornado Box, both by Mickael Chatelain and also many others. My apologies to Marc, he has many wonderful tricks on the market like Under Wraps and Tag, but Fourtunate I’m not sure I’m going to use.
Last but not least, my ‘outer part’ of the gimmick arrived torn just out of the box, not Penguin’s fault, but maybe during the packaging process on its origin. I didn’t remove any stars from my review based on this. Penguin’s perfect customer service already took care about this for me, as usual.

Whatever...for this price tag, I’d expect something more.

Great idea.It can be very effective. But when performing the effect is not always as easy as the instructions would make you believe. Without giving away any secret, let me say that there is one particular point in the routine when you need everything to work smoothly. Sometimes it doesn't as you get stuck in moving from point to point.

This is a wonderful prediction effect and best of all, it's repeatable. My gimmick is so easy and responsive - kudos to all involved!
