Well, to begin, this trick is worth $20. More like $40. And to get it in coolbox for 5 or even
without coolbox for 10 is AWESOME. I have bought many other of Rick's products (and I have never
been disappointed) but this one blew past all of them. I will use this trick every day.
-Rick's teaching is excellent.
-Rick teaches an incredible method of memorization
for one part of the trick and it alone is an awesome trick.
-It's so easy!
-At one or two parts of the video Rick drags on a topic that's not very relevant, but
his teachings are still A+
With a little practice you will be doing this trick every day.
A must have for card magicians, and basically any other magician out there too!

I absolutely love this trick. I wasn't sure what to expect, but this turned out to be one of my
favorites. I will be using it all the time. Rick does a great job explaining this and the production
value was top notch. I give this 101 stars (5 in binary). Can be done with no memorization or very
little if you do the whole trick, which I recommend. Very clever concept. Don't hesitate to get this
right away, you won't regret it.

After playing with Binary Code I just wanted to say that this is fantastic.
Rick is very
likeable and easy to listen to. The video is shot in a well lit clean space. It has a live
performance of the 3 phase routine as well as detailed explanations.
I would say that the
second phase is pretty similar to the first phase, more of a convincer that you are doing what you
are saying you are doing, memorising the cards. However the first and third phase are different
enough to make this a truly magical and very clever trick.
The memorisation idea for the
1st and 2nd phase is awesome and very well explained using demonstrations and on screen graphics.
Not to mention loads of fun to practise.
All in All this is a fantastic trick which really
could be shown as a gambling/ memorisation demonstration or magic trick. Well done Rick Lax and

But this product is a stroke of genius. I like any-time, any-deck card effects. Rick Lax covers
every detail. I also like the inexpensive cost of the product and immediate gratification through
download. Now I am going to track down any other effects by Rick.

This trick really allows you to deal cards into a red and black pile. Although the part with the 12
cards requires a bit of memorization, the part where you deal the whole deck does not. THere are
also some basic sleights but Rick shows you alternate methods that are not so hard. In summary, this
trick is amazing and worth money.

I have to admit, I was fooled by this one. The method is ingenious, and so simple. The fact that
this can be done with a borrowed shuffled deck makes it that much greater. I won't use this all the
time because it is kind of long and drawn out, so it requires the right situation, but I will
definitely keep this in my repertoire. The teaching in the video is great, and I like how Mr. Lax
gives several methods for the beginner and more advanced card handler. This is one of the best
instant downloads in a long time.

Love this effect
and it's simplicity, even for a beginner, at this price is a steal.

Rick Lax is an amazing creator, performer, and teacher. Binary Code comes across as an awesome feat
of memorization and Rick teaches alternate handlings so that anyone from beginner to expert can look
like a Mensa member!!!
Whether or not this effect is in the Coolbox, it is definitely worth

This routine actually requires a setup deck, though you can disguise it because the first half of
the routine is impromptu. There is an impromptu version, but it does not really use the full deck.
