Brent Braun’s ridiculous expose of real-time card marking is surprising, funny, fooling, and has been in his back pocket for more than a decade, so you know it’s good. This packet trick that comes with all the gimmicks you need show your audiences “the real work” of how cheaters always prosper.

In this well-structured routine the performer removes the four aces from a red deck while describing a special type of marking system where you could rub lipstick on the back of the cards to secretly tell what they are. In showing the cards, one of them magically turns pink. Next the performer describes how you can also use the ink in your blue jeans to mark the cards, and now the back of one of the cards has transformed into a blue card. Now a tactile system of marking called nail nicking is demonstrated and the third card has not only turned green but is missing a huge corner. For the finale, the magician proves the last card is definitely not marked by showing it has transformed from a red bicycle backed card to one with boldly printed letters that say, “Definitely Not Marked.” The best part is that at the end you can let your audience examine the cards.

In addition to the routine Brent teaches you how to start the trick from a deck of playing cards, and end clean so everything is examinable. The squeaky clean ending is so deceptive, he’s been fooling magicians at conventions with it for years. You’ll definitely get big reactions with Definitely Not Marked.

I think Brent Braun is a fantastic thinker when it comes to magic. I enjoy tricks where they start off very small. Then, you hit them with another color change. Then you take it up a notch with a color change and a torn corner! Then you knock them out revealing that none of the cards have red backs! Plus they can examine the cards at the end! Whats not to love! It is not only easy but insanely practical! I will be using this for a good while!

This packet trick builds just as shown in the video. The scripting is perfect and there's only one counting/handling that is involved. If you don't want to carry a deck to end clean, you could probably do a switch in your pocket or lap. It would be better to have the deck to "randomly" select the 4 aces to begin with.

I think the reactions from the woman in the video will be typical. A lot happens quickly and each count raises the surprise level.
