This Week's Top 20

After Adrian Lacroix recently released "Virtual Triumph", it went straight into the repertoires of some of the best working magicians in the world (Luis De Matos even performed it on national TV.).

Now Adrian brings a revolutionary way to perform a totally hands-off version of one of the best card tricks ever published: Paul Curry's "Out Of This World".

The spectator grabs a deck of cards, they shuffle it and then use their intuition to separate reds cards from black cards placing them all face down. At the end they find out every decision they made was correct! All this happens miles away in their own hands at their homes!

The perfect addition to your live AND virtual performances!

Or is it? The amount of audience control, and over specified instruction are an issue. You will need very direct communication, or things can go wrong. This type of overly communicated requirement of action seems methodical..and less magical. I'd rather communicate the instructions to building IKEA furniture over the phone to a blind person!

It "works", but its tedious, and it doesn't offer any new enhancement to the effect.

Virtual Triumph is a winner, imo, this isn't.

Virtual Out Of This World Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 30th, 2020
Finally.... a trick that works exactly as it appears in the trailer. What you see is what you get and it is BRILLIANT!!Anyone familiar with the Out Of This World plot knows that a setup is required. But in this version Adrian has made this so simple that you get the same results with a borrowed, shuffled deck, that you never even touch. I highly recommend it.

not bad - better if there's no alternative Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 27th, 2020
Ok, let me explain my strange caption...

I suppose you know the basic OOTW-trick, then you know that there has to be some kind of setup to work - Adrian Lacroix' version is not different.
But since this is a virtual trick, you'll have to make the audience do it without recognizing doing it.

This leads to some, intelligent, but lengthy foreplay with strict audience management along the way of the whole trick.

If you depend on video shows, then go for it, it's one of the better virtual ones, but if you're capable of a coin act or have some killer self-working tricks at hand, then use those - I suppose your audience will like them more...

A solid 3 stars over all - 4, if you're doomed to video-performances.

Strong effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 14th, 2020
It is designed for Zoom, but you can do it in regular close-up too.

This is a strong effect, and it is all in the spectator's hands. That is great. It is also a problem because the spectator must follow your directions exactly. In the demo, Adrian had some problems relaying the instructions to the spectator.

Another problem is it takes a while to get to the magic, and I don't like long tricks that don't "pop" regularly.

The end effect is very strong, and if you can handle the spectator, and keep them "into" the trick while they do all the prep, then get this routine. If you like lots of action, this may not be for you.

Adrian has put out some AWESOME routines, I just don't think this is one of them.
- for me anyway. I highly recommend his "Isolated" and "Virtual Rising". They fit the bill.

OK but you defeat the purpose by having the cards separated at the beginning!

Fooled one out of 7 people Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 31st, 2020
So I got this with the intention that it would be something more than what it was. I practiced the instructions and was very clear and the trick went to plan. The only one it fooled was my 9 yr old niece. Every adult was initially surprised but figured it out in less than 30 seconds by simply reconstructing the trick. It has more effect on people who are not analytic thinkers.

Well structured, works online Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 28th, 2020
After watching the ad I tried to figure out ways to get the audience stack the cards in an unsuspicious way. And how you get away with the classic problem of most versions of Out of this World at the end.
I can't disclose how he does it of course, but I think Adrian came up with a great way of letting the audience setting up the cards and structuring the routine so it builds up the picture of the cards being a complete mess. And I think his solution to the last phase works. The structure and actions reinforces the fairness and makes them forget they're executing the method.
I'm not familiar with his take on hands off Triumph so I'm not sure if he uses the same method.
The video includes the full performance before going through the explanation. I would have given it 4 stars because I think the script and flow could be a little better. But I gave it 5 because I'm completely satisfied with what I buy when the idea is solid and it gives me something to work on to fit my style.

You NEED Strong Audience Management. So Good! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 8th, 2022
This is so strong even to do in person. If you don't want to handle the cards and just have the spectator do all the work. So good and I like that it doesn't use all of the cards but most of them, so the process is a bit streamlined. The rest of the cards are used only to convince the spectator that the cards are shuffled so when they end up with a miracle it only strengthens the impossibility. I recommend it if you have strong audience management and can speak directly and clearly about what you want the spectator to do.

Virtual Out Of This World by Adrian Lacroix Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 15th, 2022
This is a brilliantly designed method for performing a hands-off version of Paul Curry's Out of this World. The thinking here is both clever and inspiring. And the performance, while aimed at virtual shows, may also be done in the real world.

Brilliant tick for virtual performance. I can see this being useful in person as well.
