This is a relatively strong effect that but takes moderate practice to handle the handling well. Set
aside an hour or two to get the handling right, but it is not an effect you will be able to just
watching it once through.
My instructions were badly printed with the printed words on two
of the pages being printed on twice with misaliged words so I was seeing double of each word on
those two pages. It made reading the instruction slow and confusing. On the pages that did print
well, I wish that the instructions for making the gimmick were a little clearer. (Yes, you have to
make your own gimmick the first time round, so that takes 15mins or so).

I couldn't be happier with Rule of Three. If you can get the audience involved and keep their
interest tHan you have a winner. I have tried using multiple spectators to help chooset the car as
well by having one person choose the color, another the suit and finally the value. This works
amazingly well in getting reactions.

I think this is possibly the best premise and best effect using the special Phoenix playing cards to
date. This is a wonderful card trick!

I've performed Rule Of Three and it not only plays big, it's easy to do. It's a fun routine to
perform and it gets everyone involved ( connecting with the audience, because there are NO
spectators, as Jon has educated us all ).
The well written instructions ( with color
photographs ) include an alternative handling that is equally as clever as the one you see in the
demo. Whatever version you choose, what your audience will remember is that they named ANY card and
the killer blank deck finale.
A+++ on this wonderful trick!

While this trick is bit pricey, the reactions I get are quite good. The clean up is relatively easy
as well as the one time set up. It is only a single trick but is very good, and if you like what you
see in the trailer, then get it!
i love to perform this magic effect. it really gets great reactions, it's easy to do,i recommend
this effect 100%.
Jon Allen has created a "real world worker". Integrating a logical story line, he has taken a simple
effect and turned it into an entertaining routine. The magic is very strong, but without having to
do a lot work. This makes it a wonderful addition to a "workers" arsenal, allowing the performer to
concentrate on engaging the audience, not focusing on "moves". There is a bit of time and effort
required to customize the deck before you can use it as Mr. Allen does in the demo video. Definitely
One of the best tricks ever!!!!!
I simply love it.
You can go wrong with this. What you see
is what you can do.
I love this trick. Yes, it's a one trick pony, but it's a killer. There is laughter, misdirection,
applause. It is Dean Dill's Blizzard with a punch; both effects are good and different in their own
Jon Allen created an instant classic!! Audiences reactions are mixed with laughter and amazement.
You'll perform this at every show. It's that good!
