GREAT effect! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 7th, 2010
Man oh man, have I never been so happy about someone re-releasing an effect! This is identical (as far as I know) to the Michael Skinner monte, which is AMAZING. Now, why am I happy about this being re-released?

Well, first off, I never had any problems understanding the manuscript that came with the Skinner monte. However, the handling here is different (slightly) AND it comes with a video download for easier learning, which is always a plus.

In addition, for 15 dollars, you get some AMAZING quality gimmicks; 2 SETS OF THEM! This is a great value to any close-up worker for an amazing effect.

Very underrated trick Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 23rd, 2004
I've owned this trick for quite some time now. You can master this trick in 5 minutes, and it gets GREAT reactions. The only drawback is that only 2 of the 3 cards are examinable, but with a little practice, you can switch them out effortlessly. Definitely worth the money.. best gimmick trick I own.

Best Monte Ever !!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 25th, 2005
This is a strong monte and it is easy to do! I was trying to decide what monte to buy and I'm glad I bought this one! Plus, it comes with 2 sets of monte Blue Back and Red back Bicycle cards. I always show this trick to a lot of students in my school that I don't even know! I do think trick with confidence knowing I won't mess up (with 15 minutes of practice, you will have this trick down!) I know it is impossible for me to mess up this trick, plus you get the best reactions, and sometimes wierd reactions, because spectators don't know what to expect! They keep telling me to do another one and another one! They have no clue gaft cards even exist!

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 14th, 2005
People have said that the explanation for this trick was terrible, and I agree, It was. But Forget those reviews and throw them out of the window because they have re-shoot the explanation and it is great! It's a brilliant effect too and I highly recomend it to you all who like card tricks... In fact, I recomend this to anyone who is into magic, whether you like coin magic, card magic, close-up magic it doesn't matter, you'll love it, and it'll change the way you feel for cards effects FOREVER! ADD TO CART!

different and confusing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 5th, 2017
Like other have said the cards received are different then what is on the video making it a pain to say the least to try and follow.
What makes it worse is Rick Lax's as usual total inability to teach just like all the other stuff I have gotten with him. He is horrible at teaching. I like his presentation ideas but that means nothing when he isn't good at explaining them.
Also penguin and Lax added a new video explaining that the cards you get are different than the ones in the teaching and presentation videos. No Kidding!
What a joke they took the time to make a video telling you the cards are different why not just make a video with the right cards? That would have taken just a little bit more effort that was already put in the cards are different video. Boo!

Awesome Awesome Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 14th, 2005
This has to be one of the best illusions I've seen in all my years of magic, you can effortlessly do this routine time and time again without being caught, just do it as a third or fourth trick in your routine and specs won't even care about examining the cards. 2 thumbs way way up!

Disappointing--needs more work Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 15th, 2020
The basic concept of 3 card Monte is great, and the quality of the gimmick is good, too.
However, as others have stated, Rick Lax could do a better job of teaching the effect--divide it into 4 phases, emphasize transitions between phases, teach the 4th phase much better. These are not serious issues, but perhaps a gentle suggestion for improvement next time around.
The more disappointing part was the first two times I performed the routine, my audience simply followed the ace in the second phase and, therefore, chose the wrong card and the routine was spoiled. The final phase of the routine is also quickly recognized by the audience as a card switch.
So, I'd suggest a little more work needs to be done either by the developer or the purchaser to make this version of 3 card Monte work well.

Great effect but ultra low quality cards Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 22nd, 2018
The classic effect is great and well explained. But the quality of the cards is very low. Mine have the blue and red back totally off-centered to the point I'm not confortable performing with it. It's probably a one off printing problem but It's a shame.

Great trick but I'm slow Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 21st, 2017
This is a wonderful trick but the cards I got are different from the ones Rick uses to teach it in the video. I feel like I could've learned it a whole lot faster and easier if they were the same. But maybe I'm just slow
