"I can't wait to start doing this at my walk around gigs." - Erik Tait

"David Stone knows what makes magic commercial. Everything he puts out is commercial magic. Damaged is no exception. This is killer magic and is easy to understand." - Michel Huot

FISM winner David Stone creates some of the most visual and high impact magic in the world. Damaged will leave your audience wondering if what they saw was real or trick photography, until you send them home with a memento of an impossible moment. You are going to beat your audience’s brain up with Damaged.

Here’s what happens:

A spectator freely selects any card. It is signed and lost in the deck. The magician produces the Joker, but tells their audience that they need a receipt from this wrong card before they do the impossible. A corner of the Joker is torn off and then stuck to the performer’s head. Then, away from the deck and in full view, the joker transforms into the spectator’s signed card complete with torn corner. The corner stuck to the performer’s forehead is brought back into play and is shown to have also transformed into the signed card, and the torn edges match perfectly. Everything is examinable.

Damage can be performed with a borrowed and shuffled deck that is in use. David Stone teaches every move you need to perform this startling simple yet high impact routine. There are no gimmicks required, and everything is examinable. This is a fantastic opener for any card magician that wants to add some impossible eye candy to their magic. This is Damaged.

No, it’s not trick photography Report this review

This is freaking amazing and is it real not trick photography CGI. How could this be? When I watched the trailer I knew I wanted to learn this one. It blew me away and I’m sure you too and will do so to any spectator you perform this for. And you can do it with a borrowed deck???? YES if you want but better to use your own. Make sure if it’s borrowed, they know there will be some damage that will ensue. You will learn the technique of how to do this in under 9 minutes. There is no arts and crafts needed - nothing to make but you will need to learn a couple of little somethings. One of them you, all of your already know - it’s a basic and standard sleight. For the other one, those experienced card workers out there will probably already use this or know how to do it. For the newbies, what an amazing opportunity to learn this move and perform this incredible effect.

David does add for very nice flourishes to better sell this effect but not necessary to create the dynamic finale that will blow your spectators away. David does an amazing job of teaching every move and nuance you will need to pull this off. Strat clean and end clean.

Any time that you can leave your spectator with a take away souvenir of your magic, it will be memory they will not forget every time they show someone or look at this keepsake. This is a veery nice, visual and deceptive effect you want to add to your repertoire, well worth the time you will invest to learn it. A reputation make … possible. Thanks for sharing David!

Simply beautiful magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 5th, 2020
Buy this! This is what great magic looks like. What could be better than a surprise ending, great misdirection and easy moves to completely fool anyone. This is as creative and well conceived as magic gets. Wonderful.

Great trick! Great move! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 5th, 2020
This is a great trick. Although he says he uses it as an opener, it doesn't have to be.
The trailer is completely honest. This is an entirely impromptu trick that can be done with a borrowed shuffled deck (as long as the deck owner doesn't mind you tearing cards.)
This trick uses just two moves. One we all know. The other I was not familiar with and am eager to try as it doesn't look very hard.
I like the way he has thought out all aspects of this trick to make it easier for us to perform, including when to give and take back the pen, and how to tear the card.
If you don't mind tearing cards, this is great trick to have in your arsenal.
(And you don't have to use a Joker. Any card can become their signed card!)

No words.. Best trick of 2020 Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 5th, 2020
To me, this is what magic is all about... Combinations of illusion and skill... Is this difficult? Not if you practice. That is magic right?

David has given us a hammer of an illusion.. This could be the best download of 2020.

The trick is taught pretty quickly, but well. You might have to dust off your old school magic hands, but worth it.

This is dynamite.

Clever effect! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 5th, 2020
Sometimes the beauty of an effect lies within its simplicity, and sometimes simple-seeming effects are the hardest to pull off. This effect by David Stone is a novel combination of classic card magic principles used to create a new effect, and I love how elegant it is. I think beginner magicians will get a lot from this, and experienced performers will be pleasantly delighted at David’s new perspective on combining techniques they are likely already familiar with, resulting in them being able to add a fun new effect to their arsenal in a matter of minutes.

This is SO Brilliant! Report this review

David Stone has created another miracle with this effect. Yes, you will destroy cards when performing this, but it's totally worth it to destroy MINDS! David teaches you everything you need to know to completely astound your audience.

If you like the demo video, you're gonna LOVE this! Highly recommended!

A powerful opener Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 5th, 2020
This is a great trick to use as an opener. It's quick, visual, and leaves the spectator with a good story and a souvenir. David goes over the routine well and gives tips on how to practice to get the moves down. To do this trick, you will ruin cards, but that's a small price to pay for a miracle like this.
