"Shut up and take my money."
- Eric Jones

"I must say that this looks so good. It is by far the cleanest ALL-AROUND color-changing card box I have ever seen."
- Mark Mason

BLUE ILLUSION IS AN EYE-POPPING MOMENT OF MAGIC, WITH NO COVER.

A BLUE Bicycle card box is picked up off your table. It is shown to your audience in the fairest possible manner; no cover of any kind.

The box is opened, and a RED deck is slid halfway out. With just a wave, the ENTIRE BOX VISUALLY changes color to RED.

THIS REALLY HAS TO BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED. ALL 6 SIDES CAN BE SHOWN.

The deck is removed and spread face up. Your spectator names ANY CARD; NO FORCE of any kind. NO COVER.

The freely named card is flipped face down. It is the ONLY BLUE-BACKED CARD in the ENTIRE DECK.

The named card is flipped face up and laid on the red card box. The deck is shown; there are no other BLUE CARDS in the deck.

At this point you explain it's all been an illusion.

The box was NEVER BLUE, there are NO BLUE cards in the deck and finally the card they named was also never blue -- the SPECTATOR turns over the card themselves; IT IS NOW RED!

I hate giving bad reviews but this gimmick came apart ont he first attempts to use it. the crease on the box started tearing apart. I really like the idea behind this but the gimmick is to fragile to last very long. I tried taping it but then the box looks really tampered with. Sorry If they come up with a stronger box i might try it again...

It’s very clever idea 💡 and with little practice you will learn that.the only problem why I give this 4 stars is mark never explain how to repair the gimmick.

The Gimmick isn't well designed Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 23rd, 2019
Without giving away the methodology of the gimmick, I can say it never completes the process because the "gimmick" isn't strong enough. It leaves 100% of the time an outlying, clearly visible flap along the edge.

I'm going to have to try to figure out how to strengthen those now, because this will never work with how weak the "gimmick" strength is. Or maybe mine is just badly designed?

Awesome idea, not the best gimmick? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 9th, 2020
Ughh, where do I start. Rly rly cool gimmick tbh. I just got mine today and was using it within minutes of construction. I could be sounding like the other reviewers but I have a feeling whoever made the gimmick jsut didn’t take enough time to test out the magnets because they are so weak! That’s honestly the only frustrating part about this other than that once you get the motion down to make the color change happen it looks amazing.
I’m going to have to talk to Penguin about this purchase because they never let me down and I feel kinda let down after purchasing this product :(
Ughhh idk, buy at your own risk. It’s an awesome trick but I feel like it’s a gamble whether the magnets you get are strong or weak. Or perhaps they are all weak in design? Not rly sure tbh

Not a happy camper Report this review

I've used tricks by Mark Mason before and thoroughly enjoyed them. This trick has some quality control problems. I had to return my first purchase as it was ripped and the tape used had bubbles in it. Penguin was kind enough to send a replacement. On the replacement, the magnets did not hold. I definitely won't be recommending this trick.

Blue Illusion-left me feeling blue Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 25th, 2020
Excellent concept. Like the other reviews I found the gimmick tearing after only 5 practice attempts. I was being gentle too! After reading the other reviews on the quality of the product I was careful in how I practiced the change, but it still ripped. If the box is examined the spectator will see clearly how it was done, not all sides are able to pass the visual test! All in all I feel it’s an excellent idea....don’t know how I could design it better but I’m hopeful a 2.0 design comes out addressing some of the issues. I give it a 2 just on the creativity but the cost is way more than what’s its worth. The quality just isn’t there for the price. I would have rather spent the funds on other items. But hey, you never really know until you take the risk right! Oh well....on to the next gimmick.

Wow! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 23rd, 2019
I am having so much fun with this effect! I fooled myself the first time I did it.
All you need is a new deck of cards to match the included box and you are good to go. Set up is nominal. The trick itself is soooo simple to do and soooooooo powerful to your audience.
Do yourself a favor and get this one. You will use it for years to come.

great visual trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 3rd, 2020
I love this trick would've gave it 5 stars if not for the box lid remaining static which Mark Mason clearly shows how to avoid flashing the lid. All in all great effect
