This isn’t the Triumph you wanted, it’s the Triumph you needed.

The spectator signs a card, it’s lost in the deck, then the spectator shuffles the cards face up into face down. The cards are immediately spread and all of the cards face the same direction except for the one bearing their signature.

This fantastic routine from Nathan Kranzo puts all of the things we want out of this classic effect in the hands of the spectator. It’s extremely easy to do, and the presentation makes the method totally fly past your audiences. Best of all this can be done with a borrowed deck that is in any condition.

The next time a friend hands you a dog eared deck that is beyond worn out, Dark Triumph is here to save the day.

Looks great, plays great, seems impossible but it’s not, it’s fun and it looks like real magic. There is really only one simple move and it’s really not a move. For all intents and purposes, the spectator does most of the work just prior to the amazing climax of this effect.

The card chosen by the spectator is really a free choice not a force - great start. There is no controlling of the selected card - nice! There is nothing to make, glue, cut or add to the deck - this keeps getting better. There is no sleight of hand, nothing complicated to do at all - Really? Yes. Pro or novice - doesn’t matter, it’s easy. As I was watching the tutorial I just followed what Nathan did with a deck of cards and it worked that quickly, I was already doing it. What you see in the trailer is exactly what happens. Learning time - a couple of minutes. If you are a pro, Nathan does show an alternate handling but this is not necessary.

What reason would you not buy this one, there are none, this is a keeper and can be done in a moments notice. No set up required, totally impromptu, use your deck or the spectator's as long as they don’t mind being left with a signed card in their deck. But why not, what a great story they will tell about you the next time they play cards and the signed card comes into play. This will also fool other Magicians if that’s what you are into. Don’t hesitate, this is a ‘must have’.

I am always looking for something that can be done anywhere/anytime with no prep AND with a borrowed deck. This is that, my friends.

What 'Dark Triumph' does - and what it does so sneakily - is having it appear that the magic is happening in the spectator's hands. The presentation is simple and humorous, with the final reveal of a randomly selected signed card as the only face down card in the deck a hoot.

No arts/crafts. No heavy sleights. No crazy moves.

Get this. Now. Thank me later.

This is a worker. Big time.
Well done, Nathan.

Borrowed Deck + Spectator Shuffle! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2019
The two missing parts of any great Triumph has always been BOTH a borrowed deck and a spectator shuffle. this is the solution. Awesome Nate!

My all time favorite card trick just got better! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2019
Triumph is my absolute go to card trick. I’ve performed it thousands of times over the last almost 30 years. The first version I learned was taught to me by Baffalo Bill at the Cu Coo’s Nest in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania (thanks Bill!).

I’ve tried several versions since then and always go back to Bill’s method.

But I will definitely use Nathan’s handling to take it to the next level. The fact that the spectator can shuffle is revolutionary! I do think that instead of shuffling under the table, I will shuffle and have the spectator shuffle in a large black satin bag or pillow case on the table itself.

Nathan is a great teacher and he takes the time on this download to really go over some of the finer details and nuances.

It’s a great effect and I don’t know why I didn’t think of this! I’ve always handled the cards casually and as openly as possible, but this added layer of the spectator handling the cards takes it to a whole new level.

The one caution I have for those considering this purchase is that there is a little bit of management to do, to keep your volunteer from either seeing how it’s done or messing it up altogether. But it’s very easy and good practice to build up chops for other effects that require more intense audience management.

Great stuff Mr Kranzo!

Brilliant Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2019
This is brilliant. I'm a beginner at I get overwhelmed with a lot of tricks and then I give up on them :D This one is different - this is a no brainer - even I can do it. No preparation, borrowed deck, easy to perform - just brilliant. Best money i've spent on penguinmagic!

Easy & Clean Worker Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2019
This is an interesting solution to the Triumph plot that allows you to let the audience member shuffle. There are virtually no moves, it's really easy to remember, and it can be done with a shuffled borrowed deck, making it a real worker. I'm adding this to my impromptu repertoire.

Super easy hard hitting magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2019
Through a presentational ploy Kranzo has taken away the sleight of hand and added SPECTATOR SHUFFLES! It’s crazy, but it’s true! A spectator shuffles Triumph which is practically self working.

Very thoroughly taught, you will be doing this in very little time.

So Far So Good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 3rd, 2019
This is a self working trick that's easy to learn. It does take some audience management and proper setting. Table, chair, etc. I've gotten around this with a large silk bandana. I've found that this way makes for less dropped decks and makes everything look above board. And for some reason, with the bandana covering the hands while shuffling less folks think your up to something.
