GAME by Luke Jermay

Price: $29.99
Out of stock.

Roberto Giobbi, Michael Weber, R Paul Wilson, Daniel Madison, John Archer, Asi Wind have all played Jermay's "GAME" and now it's your turn ... "GAME" is Jermay's professional handling of Dai Vernon's classic "Trick That Cannot Be Explained" that brings this previously opaque, challenging, and difficult concept to the hands of even the novice.

Full details of performances with your deck, a borrowed pack and alternative handlings are covered in this DVD. A shuffled deck. An impossible prediction. With "GAME" the rules have changed.

"Luke Jermay is as devious as he's clever, and he's a Master at complication - with this take on TTTCBE he might just fool the Devil..."
- Roberto Giobbi

"Intelligent magicians will want to read and learn everything Luke Jermay is willing to share, and the really intelligent ones don't have to be told."
- Michael Weber

"Jermay's GAME is the real deal: deceptive, practical AND impossible."
- R. Paul Wilson

"Jermay is a master at constructing powerful plots packed with interest and theatricality that fool audiences badly. This is masterclass."
- Asi Wind

"Clever and fooling! With layers of devious principles and a great hook, Jermay has created an ingenious twist on a classic effect."
- John Guastaferro

"Once again, Jermay demonstrates how an intriguing and captivating presentation takes a simple plot from a 'that's cool' climax to an 'OMG! NFW!' moment."
- Nicholas Einhorn

"In typical Jermay style, this routine is an absolute, deeply fooling, winner."
- Doug McKenzie

"When I saw Luke perform 'Game' I was totally fooled...the handling is so clean...the effect so impossible. This is seriously deceptive!"
- Marc Paul

"Being genuinely fooled by magic is a wonderful thing. Luke seems to do this effortlessly ... I have no idea how GAME works. I think I'd prefer to keep it that way. Fantastic."
- Wayne Houchin

"There are many tricks you can do, but very few will actually be remembered by your audience. Luke generously decided to share his version of the "Trick That Can't be Explained"... I prefer to call it the trick that won't be forgotten!"
- Luis DeMatos

"Luke has created a perfectly impossible moment; bridging the ultimate gambling demonstration with something mystifying that simply cannot be explained."
- Daniel Madison

"Jermay brings his brilliant thinking to bear on one of card magic's great under-performed effects. Well that's about to change, since what Jermay has brought to the table brings this fantastic trick into the reach of every single magician. Classic Jermay."
- Mark Elsdon

"Those who think of Luke Jermay as "only" a mentalist severely underestimate his all-around magical skills and knowledge-particularly with playing cards. This routine proves that Luke can sit at a card table with the best of them."
- John Lovick

"I have watched "GAME" over and over and over. I'm fooled each and every time. I want this all to myself."
- Robert Smith

"If you are reading this, I'm confident that you are now amongst the good company of the many others that this has fooled. A truly masterful piece, performed by a true master."
- Chris Rawlins

"By putting a lovely theatrical frame around complex ideas, Jermay finds a bit of drama and wonder in what is often a dry card trick."
- Eric Mead

"In Jermay's GAME you'll perform an impossible prediction effect with surprisingly little work! No gambling knowledge is required in this gambling themed effect, i.e. all of the drama with none of the boredom, amazing!"
- Tom Stone

"I love being fooled by Luke Jermay - he could almost be a 21st-century Jedi Knight when it comes to playing tricks with people's minds. His performance of "The Trick that cannot be Explained" left me completely bewildered by the outcome. One of the things I love about Luke's approach to card magic is that it appears to be lacking any kind of recognisable procedure and yet still the outcome is truly inexplicable. Having watched GAME I am left with the feeling I need to revisit this classic plot in preparation for adding Luke's thoughts and analysis to one of the most extraordinary concepts in card magic. Dai Vernon started the conversation, followed by the intervention and creative analysis of many other magicians over the years. I'm very excited that Luke has tackled this problem!"
- Michael Vincent

"Luke thinks about magic on another level and The Game is a perfect example of this. No detail has been left untouched."
- Chad Long

"Finally a version of the truck that cannot be explained that CAN be explained. 'Game' is practical, fun, and enormously fooling."
- Hector Chadwick

I felt I had to write a review since I believe this is such a brilliant effect and the existing reviews didn't do it justice.
This effect is based on Dai Vernon's "Trick that cannot be explained" plot. (Although the effect pre-existed Vernon, most magicians have connected this effect with him). Having said that, what remains to be examined in this project is if Luke Jermay has added to this effect or not.
I can honestly say that he knocked it out of the park. Not only there is a great amount of thinking behind this effect but I can say that the best improvement on the classic is that it is given a logical structure that allows it to have very few variations from one performance to another and always leads to the same final result of course (as seen in the trailer).
Another major improvement is that although in the classic effect the performer sometimes had to spell certain words using the cards to arrive to a certain card, in this effect the poker theme takes care of that beautifully. Last but not least, even though the handling is so clean and the final selection is never switched, Luke has added an ingenious method that makes the effect easier compared to the classic. (I cannot say more here in order not to expose the secret, but let's just say that the chances of getting "lucky" in this poker hand, have increased dramatically with this method).
Points to consider:
- Handling is easy - no difficult sleights or anything complicated.
- If you perform the effect properly the final result is always the same - Royal Flush from 10 to Ace.
- Can be performed with the performer's -not so innocent deck- (all cards are different though), or with a borrowed deck (that is Luke's suggestion) with a small difference in performance (a face up spread - the rest is exactly the same as in the demo).
- Although this effect might not be for the faint of heart, Luke gives suggestions and variations on how to make this even easier. Personally I think the effect is beautiful in its simplicity and there is no reason for any changes.
If you like what you see in the demo I think you will like the method as well. Very clean, very open and very impossible. Definitely 5 stars from me.

Best card trick I've learned in 2015 Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 28th, 2015
Luke is a true genius and a phenomenal teacher. This trick is so easy (almost self working) yet it would take a master like Luke to perfect it. It's one of those lovely tricks that forces you to think about the presentation, which Luke gives an incredible explanation on.
All in all, this is more of a magician fooler rather than one you would use to impress a layperson, but if you buy this trick you'll learn so much about how limited magicians' minds operate.
Get this, be inspired, and go mystify all your fellow magicians.

Game is a compilation of two strings techniques. it is brilliant ! There are two possible performance, and the best is the one you can perform with a borrow deck... it is perfect

i can not give 5 stars only because i would like there are those two tips of performance, which one of it could be more powerful than the other, but although this is such a good effect, it is super clean ! you never touch the deck, just only to make an spread, and there is no tricky moves!

i recommend it a lot
