The Full and Complete Work On Erik Tait’s Go-To Effect

There’s no question that Out Of This World is one of the strongest effects anyone can do with a borrowed deck of cards. While the deck is face down an audience member points to the backs of the cards which ones they think are red, and which ones are black. They are correct every single time. It’s been a reputation maker for many magicians, and now Erik Tait is tipping the full and complete work on a handling that he uses to wreck laypeople. This is Out Of This Zip Code by Erik Tait.

Here’s what happens:

The audience is allowed to thoroughly shuffle a deck of cards. The deck is turned face up and the audience is asked to memorize the order of the cards in a hilariously short amount of time. The deck is turned face down and the audience is asked to point to a handful of cards they remember as red or black. Those cards are fairly removed from the deck so that the audience knows there is no possibility of a switch. After the selection process, the deck is shown once again to be thoroughly mixed up. The selected cards are turned over, and the spectator is revealed to have successfully divined the color of all the cards.

This effect is so fooling because it’s so direct. Not only does the audience get to shuffle the deck, and see that it’s shuffled before and after the selection process, but they can select both the red and the black cards from the same portion of the deck. Erik Tait has lectured on Out Of This Zip Code for years, but he’s always held a couple of things back. In this download, you’ll get the full and complete work on how to do this astonishing routine. You’ll learn two different handlings: an easy version, and a challenging version. Both handlings hit like a freight train. In addition to the routine, you’ll also learn the secrets to some challenging sleights that you’ve always wanted to add to your repertoire. If you’ve ever wanted to take your card magic to the next level, now’s your chance to take it out of this world with Out Of This Zip Code by Erik Tait.

Great fun after practice Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 24th, 2021
This is a great condensed version of Out of This World that has one tricky move you'll need to practice. Of course, if you get the move down you'll have another great weapon in your card move arsenal as well. For those who aren't knuckle-busters, Erik offers a very nice alternative that, to me, actually looks a lot less suspicious than the harder move and is easier to do. You can do it with a borrowed deck, partial deck, or whatever, and you end clean which is a nice bonus.

I think Larry Hass' "My Way Out of This World" is still my preferred version using a shuffled deck just for the overall clean look of it, but this will be a nice alternative that has the nice touch of you apparently never seeing the faces of the cards until you turn them over after you run through them for the spectator. It's a nice clean trick that should floor laypeople.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 26th, 2021
I usually do not review tricks, but I felt I had to for this effect. I like both the easy and hard version of this trick!

The trick is very direct and easy for the spectator to understand!

That something extra is difficult to do Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 2nd, 2021
I had a feeling that the extra sauce necessary to make this work would require a lot of work and it will. DON'T BUY THIS UNLESS YYOU ARE ALLOATING SOME SUBSTANTIAL RACTICE TIME FOR MOST PEPLE.

you can’t learn a sleight like this Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 10th, 2021
The effect requires a difficult sleight that you can’t learn with a quick tutorial. Not satisfied with the tutorial.

Very Clean and Fair OOTW Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 25th, 2022
I'm a big fan of OOTW, but certain discrepancies discourage me from the more traditional methods. Erik's treatment of the premise did not disappoint.

First, the work. As referenced in other reviews, there is some practice necessary. One review even mentions that such a move can't be learned with such a quick tutorial. I disagree. Granted, I was familiar with the necessary maneuver to make this effect go, I found Erik's tutorial on it (at least a 10 minute explanation - that's 30% of the total video here) very inciteful with some ideas on it I hadn't picked up from previous sources.

Erik lays out all the mechanics for the viewer. He's not rushed. He even doubles back to emphasize some of the finer points. For what you pay for this single effect, you get knowledge that can be applied to numerous other applications. The ROI here is great.

And if you aren't quite up to snuff with the initial method, Erik's alternative is an excellent option that can still look very clean.

The effect is exactly as advertised: spectator shuffles and freely selects. You can't get much cleaner than that. All of your handling is explained via the patter, so there aren't any unnecessary movements.

To the rest of the video: Erik supplies ideas for patter, credits and cites methods appropriately, and even explains his thinking for the misdirection (which I think was an excellent addition).

If I could rate it higher than a 5, I would.

A little bit difficult for beginners Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 24th, 2022
I'm a beginner.
So it's a little bit difficult for me.
But I'll train again and again.

Another great way to do OOTW Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 9th, 2022
I really like the OOTW plot. A lot. And without noticing, I started collecting them. This method is another great add-on to the OOTW collection.

Erik is right. Full deck OOTW can be boring and his way of answering that is truly smart. The moves incorporated here make sense thanks to the patter, it's hidden well thanks to the structure of the routine, and Erik teaches alternatives, so you are well covered.

Also, Erik's teaching is thorough as always and very detailed. This isn't different in quality than any other of his other prodcuts which are really good.

Wonderful teaching Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 22nd, 2022
Eric is so conscience and clear. Very easy to understand and the tasks to make this routine work are laid out extremely well and explained thoroughly. Left at the end of the video knowing exactly what I need to do to have success with the routine and ideas for the spectators!
