The Moment is an experience you share with your spectator using antique matching cards for an astonishing matching effect they will never forget. This is The Moment by Andy Nyman.

Here’s what happens:

Two sets of antique circus cards are introduced, a red and a blue packet. Apart from those cards, the magician card is introduced as the one card the performer loved most as a child. The spectator is invited to pick the packet they like, while the other packet is set aside. The performer shows all of the different designs on the cards to the spectator before giving them a mix. The spectator then helps further mix the cards into a random order. The other packet is brought into play and revealed to have the same pictures. Impossibly, the order of the two packets matches. As a kicker, the magician card is turned over to reveal that the performer knew all along which packet the spectator would pick.

The Moment is a beautiful trick with gorgeous props. The antique circus cards look just like a memento from your childhood and were specially designed to make this trick memorable. As a bonus, Andy teaches you a mentalism effect where the spectator thinks of any one of the designs on the cards, and you can reveal the card they are thinking of with some incredibly direct mind reading. The tutorial is taught by Andy Nyman, and you not only learn the routines, but also performance tips that will make all of your magic better. The Moment is an incredible trick that allows you to share a memory with an audience of your childhood that they will never forget. The next time someone asks you how you became a magician, be prepared to share The Moment with them, by Andy Nyman.

Beautiful cards and routine. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 23rd, 2021
The instructions are 50% about the low-key presentation, and the simple control of your audience. The flop "mix" and other handlings (all easy) are gems that can be used anytime. This is my introduction to Andy. His love of magic shows. A great routine that won't take long to learn. A bit longer to learn to slow it down.

This routine looks so much better that it would with an ordinary deck. When you bring out cards that look different, your audience perks up. That gets me to two other Penguin offerings. Do look at Stegosaurus and Reverse Psychology. Break up your normal presentation (I perform for me at the moment) with the three.

Great for beginners Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 21st, 2021
This is a fantastic trick - especially for beginners like me - a grandfather of 3. The cards just look amazing. It is so simple but shows great. I practiced this several times to be sure I had the routine down - remember I am a grandfather. I performed this for one of my grandchildren and he was just amazed. Will perform this for my son and his family - I am an armature.

Great Packet Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 27th, 2021
This is a charming and magical little effect that has several surprises along the way and a killer ending. The vintage looking circus cards add to the fun of performing it.
Highly recommend.

Simply Wonderful Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 15th, 2021
I have been lucky enough to get an early copy of this and it’s just a pure joy. You can create wonderful moments of magic but the joy is weaving a story that creates images and feelings in your spectator that are then cemented with the magical moments leaving the spectator really having experienced something a bit special. You could just do the trick and it’s great but take the time to create something.

Andy has made something golden hear. Nothing too difficult to do, and you will learn the necessary faster than you think thanks to Andy’s excellent teaching.

A Moment of Nostalgia Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 15th, 2021
"The Moment," is a wonderful piece of nostalgic close-up magic to perform to all ages. The storyline you tell isgreat. However, I did modify a few cards and the storyline to fit my style and life's story. Not only do you receive two beautifully pictured decks that remind me of trading cards, but your volunteer has a freedom of choice of which deck they would like to use (red) or (blue). Everything is easy to setup and reset on a few moments. I love this little piece of my childhood nostalgic circus cards and it's ready to perform under my close-up "Big-Top" anytime. Superb job Andy!!

Beautiful, simple trick. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 16th, 2021
Really like this one and would particularly recommend it for people who feel storytelling is a strength for them. Thanks he cards themselves are beautiful and there are several ways you could perform this. My only adjustment is with the “Master Magician” card reveal. I only use one and simply go for a 50/50 chance. If I’m not lucky simply use that card as a story telling device and skip the reveal. Btw, Andy’s explanation/teaching is excellent and thorough.

Cute But Simple Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 18th, 2022
I am not as enamored with this as some people. It involves quite a bit of patter which is appears to be mainly intended to have the spectator look you in the eye so he or she isn't paying too much attention to what you are doing. If anyone watches closely the jig is up. A long way to go for a simple card trick. The effect can be done with ordinary playing cards but the use of the circus animals is cute plus it does definitely help to conceal the secret.

Great routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 25th, 2022
Can't say how much I love this! I actually had the original playing cards (an Old maid deck) when I was a kid. Andrew gives such clear directions and the presentation advice is so useful beyond just this trick. Both effects are so powerful that it leaves the audience stunned!
