ONE CARD. That’s it.

You pull out a single card and ask your friend to name a number between one and ten. It’s truly a FREE CHOICE.

Then she decides on a suit.

You tear up the ONE card (that’s been in full view the whole time) and shown the torn pieces. They don’t match the card she named. The suit is wrong. The number is wrong. Everything’s wrong.

But what if it wasn’t?

You take one of the torn pieces and put it in her hand. (No switches—the WHOLE trick uses one card.) She makes a fist. And then, inside your friend’s hand, the card piece TRANSFORMS INTO THE NAMED CARD.

She gets to keep the torn piece as a souvenir of the impossible moment.

Message from Rick:

I’ve been working on this trick for about two years now. I’ve jammed with over a dozen great magic minds on this, and, yes, finally it’s ready to for release.

I’m happy about that because ever since my Facebook videos took off, more and more people have been asking me to read their minds. So now, this trick lives in my wallet. It’s perfect for all the times I don’t want to carry a whole deck of cards with me.

I’m confident you’re going to love it as much as I do.

-Rick

Extremely disappointing Report this review

The method for this effect is blatantly obvious for the spectators, would most certainly not recommend.

MASTERPIECE BY RICK LAX – A TOTALLY BIASED REVIEW Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 29th, 2016
Let me begin by saying I am no Magician you have ever heard of; BEING a Magician never paid bills; DOING Magic paid the bills for several years. I say all that to say this – Rick Lax is my new favorite Magician because of this little gem right here. That, and the power this effect gives the intelligent, thinking Magician make it THE effect to purchase this year, IMHO...

Masterpiece is a Magic geeks beautiful little dream, not because of the Illusion itself, but because of the geek-deep level of instruction included with your purchase. Rick Lax covers stuff you wouldn’t know needed covering until you had performed this effect yourself publically at least 500 times. Mr. Lax goes off the deep end of effect explanation, all to the benefit of the purchaser. Spend time with Rick and his instruction...it is worth far more than the asking price on the effect.

Finally, Masterpiece enabled me to successfully complete an effect I have seen no less than 75 times in public performance by that same number of performers, and had included in my shows due to Jeff Hobson’s usage of it in his performance for a Magic convention. Basically a throw-away effect, the Magician produces one card, asks a random audience member to name one card, and then, indicating that the cards DON’T match, mutters something about how cool that would be if it ever actually worked; put Masterpiece on the end of it, and it does work, to brilliant and amazing effect.

I performed this effect 5 minutes out of the box, a professionals no-no, and fooled the pants off of my wife. It answers her three requirements of any effect I perform – ‘why did you do it?’ ‘Is it stupid?’, and, ‘Can I hold it?’ Masterpiece went immediately into all my close-up and parlor work; I now await the Jumbo Deck version, Rick...

Not Bad Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 22nd, 2016
When I saw it I suspected how it was done and this time I was right. I just wonder how many other people will figure it out as well. I suspect most people will not think you have a gaft card but I don't know. My 12 year old son figured it out but 1) he is really smart, and 2) I do tricks for him all the time. So I kind doubt this will blow people away.

YOUVE BEEN WARNED!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 24th, 2016
Okay first off let me start by saying I do not hate this trick. It has potential but when I watched the demo I thought wow I know how this is done but it can't be that simple... but it was that simple. The first person I showed this to, told me how it was done and they were correct. They were not even surprised at what had happened. The second person I did it to thought it was "cute" but they guessed correctly how it was done as well. Refills for this trick are available now and let me just say I will not be buying them. I love Penguin Magic I really do but this trick just is not for me.

I can't believe this was made Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 21st, 2021
Even with the heavily edited performance. it is INCREDIBLY obvious how this is done. You can't show the other pieces of the card, and for some reason the index and pip (which are ALWAYS on a corner of the card) are in the middle side of the card and not a corner, no where near where they would be in a normal card.

This doesn't pass an initial thought process of 'how did they do that?'.

The first thing a spectator thinks is the actual way this was done.

Got burned Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 29th, 2016
I do not not mean any disrespect, but I performed this trick for 5th graders at a school where I am a noon hour supervisor, and they figured out how the trick was done. I was surprised that although I performed Masterpiece exactly as shown on the tutorial, they took no time at all to burn me. I can't figure out how this happened.

Rick Lax is BRILLIANT! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 28th, 2016
When I opened the box I instantly loved what was inside. The product itself is top notch in terms of quality (like all Rick's products are) and tutorial that comes with it is outstanding and VERY detailed! Typically I am skeptical of things you have buy refills for but this one is well worth it. So far the reactions I've gotten from it are FANTASTIC and in my opinion the best part about this effect is that if you routine it correctly, it can be either the perfect opener OR closer in your close up routines!

Great job Rick! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 29th, 2016
The single card prediction is a holy grail to be sought after. Rick Lax gives his solution in his creation, Master Piece. One card is in play, they name a card initially your prediction doesn’t match. The magician then tears up the card and hands the participant a piece. That piece then changes in the hands of the participant.

This is very easy to do and only one card is in play. You will need a way to dispose of the pieces but other than that you could perform this without anything else. A card is destroyed in each performance so refills will be required. The deck you receive has 52 gaffs anyways, that will last quite a while for most.

This is an excellent easy to do piece of magic! Great job Rick!

One of my favorite magic releases in modern times is "Tornado" by Rick Lax. This release is right up there with Tornado. I will be carying this in my wallet from now on. It's too good not to. The trick is simple to follow and easy to do. Those are always two very important factors. I will be trying this out very soon, but I know it will be a big hit. The only down side to this is that 1/2 the time there will be a slight discrepancy at the end, but unless you're performing for magicians or professional poker players, it will go unknoticed. Overall, this is another hit. I'm sure I'll be buying a refill pack very soon.

Great work yet again, Rick!
