"What a great download from our favorite self-working card trick deity and it really kills over ZOOM, or FaceTime, or on the phone or even in person." 9/10, Straight Talk Magic Reviews

‘Zoombaya’ is the first of a series of releases from John Bannon featuring virtual, internet-friendly stunners you’ll also want to do live, up-close and personal. This incredible routine allows you to determine which of eight random cards your participant is thinking of, all whilst turned away, or on videoconference, over the internet or even over the phone. And you never see or touch the cards!

Totally self working. Totally impossible!
No angles, no gimmicks, no sleights, no off-camera shenanigans
A remote miracle where you never touch or see the cards
The eight cards can be from a borrowed deck
No elaborate pre-trick nonsense, start immediately from a shuffled deck
Works over video call / phone call / in person / on stage!
Perform from the other side of the world

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT ‘ZOOMBAYA’:

"Just look at Liam’s face in the trailer. That’s the face of someone who just got fooled. Zoombaya is classic Bannon: interesting method, fun to do, fooling, usable, and strong impact. This has become my go-to phone or Zoom effect, and it will become yours too. Highly recommended!” Tim Trono

"Zoombaya is a perfect impromptu self-working effect. Ideal for virtual performances, but equally - if not more - effective over the phone or in person. All your spectator needs is eight playing card-like objects (so they can be mixed and dealt), such as 8 different postcards, business cards or credit cards. It lends itself to many presentational ploys such as listening for a tell or detecting a lie. I love this!" Richard Hatch

"Zoombaya is the perfect mix of practical magic with astonishing results. I already have a spot in my parlour show for it and you will find a place for it too. No set up, no prep or pre-show and no hassle. It is so diabolical!” Alan Rorrison

"Bannon strikes again. Zoombaya is diabolical and virtually amazing! Love it!” John Guastaferro

"If you locked John Bannon and Jim Steinmeyer in a room, and told them they couldn’t get out until they fooled you, this is how they’d do it. Simple, direct, and unfathomable, Zoombaya is everything most virtual tricks aren’t.” Curtis Kam

"Zoombaya is a simple-to-perform card trick stunner, that works just as well over Zoom. As a bonus, John discusses ways to perform the routine without playing cards.” Charlie Randall

"An absolute brain buster! Not only a great Zoom trick but it's perfect for live shows as well. Another knockout from the Bannonator!" Cameron Francis

"This is some dastardly business. John Bannon’s Zoombaya will be scrambling brains till the end of time.” David Regal

"When Bannon talks I listen. When it’s a versatile, fooling trick that can be done from a borrowed, shuffled deck, onscreen OR live, I not only listen but I add it to my repertoire. Done.” Raj Madhok

"Looks great!” Dave Solomon

"Zoombaya is a beautifully constructed self-working masterpiece. An easy to do miracle, don’t think twice. It’s John Bannon, NUFF SAID!" George McBride

"In the remote world of Zoom, when the outcome of everything a spectator does cannot be seen or otherwise ascertained by a performer and yet the performer can prove that his Psychic Bandwidth knows no bounds, you have a Zoom-worthy miracle! P. S. The operative principle is cool, too!" Jon Racherbaumer

Cute little trick,
but c'mon you shouldn't be charging $ 10.00 for this : you should be giving it away for free.

Pretty good, pretty easy, pretty fun Report this review

A great impromptu card trick that’s easy enough to learn but challenging enough to be impressive. You won’t blow anyone’s mind with this because it’s clearly one of those mathmatical tricks that works itself. But it is fun if your friends say, “Hey show us a trick!” I’m very happy with it!

Easy to do. No sleights. Learn it in 10 minutes. But the outcome is oh, so compelling! And fun! Especially if you have a sense of theater, you can really milk this one to the delight and puzzlement of the participants. Hey, it’s John Bannon. ‘Nuf said.

Good mentalism if you stay away from playing cards and even the a motion of dealing. They use your business cards or just pieces of paper. They write down their top 8 favorite meals. You divine their #1. Could be a lot of fun.

Bannon is Soooo Smooth Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 23rd, 2021
John was a wonderful laid-back presentation style with all that he does and this trick is no exception. He leads the spectator thru various confirmation stages which gets the head bobbing "sure" or "yes" and makes it highly unlikely to deconstruct.

Pros: Can be performed live or with any other medium. Any cards at any time. Totally impromptu.

Cons: While possible, I am hesitant to do an instant repeat. The explanation to the audience of "sensing vibrations" does not fit my M.O. But I am working on a suitable preso for my style.

Absolutely brilliant! Even the “lame” jokes or endings are snarky enough to be clever and humorous!

Great, Clever, Easy Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 22nd, 2021
As with anything Bannon, this is great and a must have. It is an incredible effect for Zoom and can be done quite effectively live. Easy but clever method. It will become a standard for you. Check out this and Max Maven's Lost and Phoned. Two of the top virtual pieces. Highest recommendation!
