Hijacked is a show stopper. Imagine reading all the minds in an ENTIRE ROOM.

Here's what happens.
1. Members of your audience are given cards to shuffle.

2. After the entire deck has been thoroughly shuffled and re-assembled, one spectator deals several cards to the table.

3. She takes those cards and concentrates on them.

4. From across the room, you are able to name every single card in her hand.

5. Taking it ONE MASSIVE STEP FURTHER, you have MULTIPLE members of the audience think of cards, which you name one-by-one as you look each individual in the eye.

* No marked cards
* No questions
* No "pumping"

Ken Dyne is one the busiest working mentalists in the world and Hijacked has been his signature mind-reading card routine.

You will LOVE the Hijacked method because it is easy, practical and THOROUGHLY audience tested. No gimmicks, no complex moves, just a standing ovation you can carry in your pocket.

Great trick, but... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 14th, 2015
Okay, I really enjoy the concept, the execution and the teaching of this trick. Ken does a great job on the download.

There's a big wow factor, etc. It's everything as advertised.

Except, if you want to do the full trick (part 2), you have to buy about $20 worth of (something I won't reveal here), which means the trick really costs double what you initially pay for it.

And, since it's a download, and not a DVD, there really is no production cost, so you're paying $20 for the idea/training. That's all well and good, except for having to buy your own supplies to really do the trick.

At the very least, it would be nice if the website checkout let's you know and offers to sell you what you'll need to buy.

Doesn't matter, I still love this trick.

Absolutely brilliant! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 4th, 2015
Spoiler Alert (hopefully not): I expect the Penguin Overlords will edit this as needed if I am tipping too much...

What you need: Several decks of cards to construct the effect and two jacket pockets to perform it.

What you get: Everything is as promised. It's "like" a tossed out deck except the audience gets to handle cards multiple times. That includes shuffling an entire deck after which you reveal the cards they are looking at without any gimmickry. (That's a word... who knew?)

Also unlike many tossed out decks, you can reveal as many as 12 thought of cards! (If you watch the video to the end you learn how to reveal 52 of them. That's a show I would be happy to miss.)

Oh yeah, there's some memory work involved too. The good news is, it's not *that* onerous. Better still, the download comes with a version that's as easy to learn as stubbing your toe.

Finally, in addition to the effect and beyond the layered method, is a detailed description of the psychology that really pulls this trick together.

Great Routine !!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 16th, 2017
I love this, A few people have complained about having to purchase items to do this routine,however even when you buy a great book, since when do you not have to purchase items to use in your routines. In this particular case the items are simply decks of cards not very expensive.

Considering the power of this routine, it's well worth it. Ken's work is refreshing, modern, practical and highly entertaining. This routine is well worth your study, it does require you learning a stack Ken recommends Osterlinds stack, which is one of the best out there. This routine is a great reason to learn about the stack, if you don't know it already.

With a memorized stack you can do miracles! Hijacked is indeed impressive.

Great for working magicians. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 28th, 2015
I was personally looking forward to learning this effect. Once purchased, I realized that the routine included all ideas in which I had already know- but that is ok!!! The method is very simple and almost completely self working!! A++++. This routine can play big for close-up just as well as for stage. I really liked the full performance in which was included in the download, as well as the explanation portion. The download also includes a PDF with helpful information and other ideas!!

The only reason in which i give it 4 stars is due to the fact that you must buy other "props" in which may run a bit costly. (depending on how committed you are to the effect)

Overall, great job for both Ken and Penguin--- really enjoying the material!!!!!!!!

Tip of the Iceberg Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 28th, 2015
This is wonderful! I bought this on a whim and found the method to be highly practical. In the video, Ken Dyne states that he created the effect one morning and put it straight into his act that night. Likewise, I watched the video last evening and popped it straight into a feature position in a comedy club performance tonight. It killed. Full stop. Once you have mastered the work, you can just focus on the performance and take the room on a really unsettling ride.

Be aware that this does not mean that the work is so simple that just anyone will be able to do it straight away. There is effort involved. It just so happens that I had already done the lion's share of the preparation previously and this effect was like slipping on a jacket off the rack and having it fit like a tailored suit for me. I did make a couple of small but effective adjustments that I will be happy to share in the Discussion Section. I am looking forward to performing this for a very long time!

Thank you for sharing Hijacked, Ken Dyne!

Fun to do Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 7th, 2015
Ok, every thing is good about this; but most of all it is great fun to perform. You have so many little things you can change or adapt and you realy get many people involved. I am not a pro and I just enjoyed doing this a lot. Once every thing is "in place" you can concentrate 100% on your audience and interact. So what more do you need to give it a 5 star?

The concept is clever, and I will use this. In the video, however, there is a small discrepancy.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 3rd, 2015
I gave this 4 stars out of 5 because I'm put off when I learn that I have to spend more money in order to complete the necessary props. Yes, many magicians will have extra (whatever) lying about but many others will not, resulting in having to shop further. Aside from that, the effect is good and the video and instructions are clear and thorough. It's a two part trick where in order to accomplish the second part, the sleight needed, seems to require wearing a jacket of some sort or at least something with roomy, accessible side pockets. All in all a very good trick with audience participation.
