This trick is pretty much like the Comedy Two Card Monte, but in my opinion it is better. Plus, the
ending is a lot stronger than the two card monte. This is a classic move in magic turned into an
entertaining routine. If you aren't familiar with this trick consider adding it to your next order
and you'll be glad you did. You can expect good reactions from this trick too.

I received Ace of Spades (instead of Clubs, as the instructions indicated) + 3 of Diamonds, and this
makes it quite difficult to match, as the Ace of Spades has unique markings on it depending on the
specific pack purchased. In the three bicycle decks I had around the home, they all had different
things written on them (even though they were also 808 variety.
As-is, this is unusable
out of the box. I'm going to have to order some new Bicycle decks and cross my fingers that I get
one that matches this set. :(
Really wish this had included the matching regular cards as

Although this will take some hours to learn the routine, it is well worth the work! Every time I
have performed this it has gotten great reactions. The included instructional video is poor, but
Oz's performance is amazing. Many reviews spoke poorly of the written instructions, but I found them
very helpful when coupled with Oz's routine.
I would recommend this trick to anyone who is
willing to put in the time to learn it and wants great reactions.
As a side note, I even
messed up the trick on two occasions and showed something I wasn't supposed to and my spectators
noticed NOTHING! Even when flashing what was not supposed to be flashed I still got them.
Add this to your routine--you won't be sorry!!!

The hardest part of this is trying not to fool yourself lol.
They should tell you who is teaching on down load and this kid is not good.IT IS NOT GARRETT THOMAS
I am going to trie and get my money back.
I love this trick, I always get crazy reactions. It takes a little bit of practice, and is fairly
easy to perform. However, they don't give you the regular cards that you need, only the gimmick.
What is bad about it is that they use the Ace of spades (not the clubs, as the instruction paper
included tells you. Because it's the ace of spades (literally the card that is unique with every
deck) I have to have a regular bicycle deck in order to be able to perform it, which is a big
letdown especially if you live somewhere where it's tough to get your hands on a pack of those. The
trick is really worth it, so make sure you have a regular bicycle deck to be able to perform it. I
wish they included the cards with it, would be much easier.
I have tried many versions of three card monte. This one is my favorite. It is easy. It is fits many
walk around situations, and above all- it helps get great reactions!
A brilliant but complex card trick that when done well amazes and surprises! Great fun to perform.
Thanks Penguin Magic. A real winner and a must for all magicians!
I have always been a huge fan of two card monte. I perform that nearly every time I am out anywhere!
This trick however is a fantastic alternative, and has several twists and nuances that make it a
pleasure to perform. Very simple moves, just practice, practice, practice, for timing and
Very good. Great to carry around on you all the time.
