The most innocent, yet diabolical gaffed deck of cards!

From television and the real-world working repertoire of Laura London, comes the most versatile gaffed deck of cards: The Crimson Deck!

The Crimson Deck is a brand-new utility in the world of trick cards that allows you to have a card selected in the fairest manner possible. Just spread the cards, and then let the spectator place their selection back into the deck themselves. So far, you couldn't ask for a more fair process. The magician can then spread the cards and there are only 51... the spectator's selection has vanished. It can then appear in the card box that just a moment ago held the deck and has been in the spectator's possession, or anywhere else you want it to appear!

- Ready to perform right out of the box

- Comes with full routines by: Laura London, Nicholas Lawrence, and The Other Brothers

- Simple enough for beginners, powerful enough for pros.

- Includes multiple, separate, in-depth instructional videos

Unlike most gaffed decks, this is not a one trick pony. Multiple, different style routines are taught and once you have it in your hands, you'll find yourself inventing your own routines as well!

You can perform standard sleight of hand card magic, then use the features of The Crimson Deck to achieve the impossible, then end with your favorite card trick closer, all without a single deck switch. Try doing that with an Invisible Deck!

$40 for a regular deck and 5 cards from a Popeye deck! This should have been a $5/download. This is the biggest ripoff I,'ve bought from Penguin.

It is a good system, gimmick itself is simple and come with a nice box I don’t need, but it is a little bit over priced. The short video shows only a few tricks. I wish there are more ideas or variations included.

Crimson Deck Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 9th, 2019
London has combined two widely known principles to classic force a card from the center of a spread as opposed to dribble, riffle, Hindu, etc. Her routine improves the chance of a successful classic force from iffy at times to near 100% with just a tiny bit of spectator management. The best part, however, is her routine which employs fake psychological principles that spectators seem to readily accept (watch trailer). The kicker then relieves the spectator of the tension of being 'psychoanalyzed' so he/she can accept it's just a trick. That being said, four stars rather than five because, while basically a one trick pony, the gaff only involves 10 cards with the rest of the deck being normal so with a little careful shuffling to keep the gaff out of play, it's possible to start with a few other selected tricks then close with her routine.

The effects that are taught are really good unfortunately you aren’t taught the signed version like Laura performed on TV but overall it’s a good project just overpriced.

What is an effect worth if you don't know the secret? How much time and effort was invested in developing the secret, and lastly if it is to be released as product, what is the right price?

For my part secrets like this one may seem overpriced and should be ten dollar downloads, but I have come to learn professional secrets are priceless. This is a well kept professional secret and one that is surfacing quite a bit lately.

I have seen too many effects. Where if you can't reinvent the wheel just put them on the same model car only a different color and do a spin-off. A lot of over the counter magic is like this.

Where the professionals differ, is they have figure out how to use those same wheels on a Learjet.

For the price it would have been nice to have multiple outs for the technique used in this version of the effect, and I do mean this version of this effect because the secret is not limited to the gaffs or the gaff type provided. I do not want to give anything away about the secret, so don't ask..

There are different ways to gaff this effect, but knowing what they are come with experience, research, and buying magic secrets. Some more costly than others is all part of building your arsenal.

Obtaining the secret strikes me as an introduction to what appears to be a trend of multi-deck effects. As a professional magician you are not limited to what is provided in the box, and/or the online instructions. The sky is the limit to the inventive mind, and I don't think anyone will disagree - magic that leads to creation and invention is the most satisfying.

If you are like me the whole point of purchasing card effects, packet tricks is to learn different types of handling and gaffing methods.

I am not one to purchase an effect to perform as seen on the promotional video or as is in the online tutorial. Sometimes I don't have a choice and effect is what it is, but I am in this to learn techniques I can apply to my own effects.

I see the Crimson Deck as utility concept and more than a trick deck and again the true reveal is its not limited to what you get in the box, but as a launching point or your own cardeistry.

For the $40 price tag think beyond this trick deck itself and what is really being revealed here.

I just watched a video from another effect last night applying the same deck gaffing premises. A totally different type of gaffing and card effect than the Crimson Desk, but in the very same family of concepts. I personally have been using these same premises to create my own effects. I smile when I think to myself how did I not think of doing something along these lines years ago.

On the instruction video when Laura discusses the history behind the Crimson Desk. Think about the nucleus of what is being shared.

I would give this a 5, but I am going to give it a 4 out of 5 because to the the casual magician just wanting to perform the effect. The cost would have been offset by providing multiple outs in the set, or perhaps multiple gaff types provided to broaden the range of effects the deck could do.

For the professional minded magician who has not been introduced to the premise used. All its going to take is a spark of imagination and maybe dusting off the of these magic decks that have been sitting in the bottom drawer waiting to be donated to the local magic club.

Yes, it's overpriced at $40. I bought it at a discount, and still wish I hadn't. The routines are fine, but had I known that they require an "audience management" force, I would have avoided this. But I know this wouldn't bother a lot of people, so I suppose other folks might get more mileage out of this than I will.
