Woody Aragon is known for his elegant self-working magic. In The EP Principle, he not only teaches you a foundational element of self-working magic, but he also shares with you one of his favorite effects as well as new applications to fool the blazes out of your audience.

The highlight of this download, which is over a half-hour long, is the Alpha and Omega trick. Woody has taken an effect from The Royal Road to Card Magic and supercharged it with The EP Principle so that it appears more impossible, more hands-off, and more like a miracle. No sleight of hand required and no memorization. The EP Principle will transform your self-working magic into self-working miracles.

GREAT CLOSE-UP Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 4th, 2020
Wow - this is SO great! It looks completely fair and could play big! After seeing the method, I didn't think I could do it, but after viewing it a few times, I had it down.

I know a lot of us tend to look sideways occasionally at so-called 'self working' card tricks. But the method here - which Woody reminds us is not his - is such a fooler that the trick he wraps it in is just so tight that it becomes a complete headscratcher.

The principle is wonderful, but the fast-paced bit - with the performer revealing an impossible-to-know card - can be done with any full deck, borrowed or otherwise. No setup required.
Yes, I said NO SETUP REQUIRED.

Excellent tutorial. Excellent principle. Excellent bit.
Get. This. Now.

My new favorite self working trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 3rd, 2020
Wow, this trick blew me away. I couldn't believe how easy it is. There's not too much to memorize. If you remember the few steps, the trick basically performs itself. Woody combined a couple mathematical principals and created an effect that is bigger than the sum of is parts. There are no moves, if you can count and deal, you can perform this.

Excellent Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 3rd, 2020
No slights, just a routine that’s very very very easy to learn!
For a no nonsense easy trick, this is it.
Yes you are working with a very old principal but see how Woody has made it great.
This almost self working wonder is worth having in your tool box for those times people hand you their deck of cards and say “ show me something”.
The video is well explained with a couple of performances and woody has such a fun way about him.
This is a good trick and you be doing as soon as you finish the download.

I feel bad. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 3rd, 2020
The reason I am giving this a 4 star review is because the actual trick he shows is beautiful, and it seems everyone else who purchased this download understands the explanation with no problems.

But I've watched the explanation thrice now, and I just can't follow. Between his very thick accent, and the speed at which he speaks while explaining things, I just could not keep up with what he was saying. It's very frustrating because I seem to be the only one having this problem, so I won't knock the rating for something that's my own fault. This is clearly a great principle, but I just couldn't follow along with the explanation.

Hard to understand Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 8th, 2020
I am not sure if its the accent or the rapid fire speech, but it is very hard to follow the instructions , explanation and descriptions. I have watched it several time and am still having trouble.

Why so fast? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 8th, 2020
First I have no problem with folks from other countries and their accents BUT with that and the fast pace of his instructions, I've come no where close to understanding the instructions.

It looks like a learnable and very cool trick but I'm close to giving up.

Woody does it again Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 4th, 2020
Woody has taken another old principle and given it a new wrapping to make it better. While I tend to avoid the cut a packet, count it then look at the card that corresponds to that number tricks, wrapping it in a mathematical presentation gives you a reason. I still wouldn't present this as a mind-reading trick, if you could really read minds would you really do something this convoluted?

IF you follow Woody's advice and make the presentation interesting this is a fun trick that can't be explained. If you do it mechanically and focus on the process it is still a good trick but not entertaining, and if they remember exactly what you did they can do it and it will work.

Woody does a good job describing other ways to use the EP principle and how it works. I've know the Clock trick for decades but never really thought about why it works, just that it does. Now I know.

Thanks Woody.

So old, yet so very very new, and amazing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 4th, 2020
So you say to your spectator what you are going to do, you do it, and you blow them away with not one, but two of the old boring tricks translated by a master of performance. The trick? Easy enough for me to do. Easy to remember, even easy to modify to fit other styles and presentations.

The presenter, Woody is more than entertaining. The explanation is clear, even though you may have to adapt your ears to the accent and speed. You get such clear demonstration that any difficulty your ears might present, your eyes will resolve. The quality of the video is excellent too.

I like this one, and will definitely practice and use it. I recommend you do the same!
