The OCD Deck is a surprisingly versatile item. Many have decried it as a one trick pony, but after
owing the deck for three days, I have already created three completely different illusions. My
favourite is an oil and water routine that ends with the whole deck separating. I am sure I will
find many more uses for this deck in the days to come. My only gripe with this item is the truly
awful instructional DVD. It clocks in at ten minutes, is hosted by a very annoying magician, and
offers only one routine and a completely useless variation on it. I would certainly give this five
stars, if only the DVD had been more in-depth. But don't get me wrong - if you are OK with using a
gimmicked deck given the right performance situation, buy this!

This trick is very well thought out, and I have done it about 30 times, and everytime the spectator
is left speechless, with no idea how the trick was done. I dont know why this deck is not more
popular than it is, granted the deck can not be handed out, but enough cards are shown in sight of
the viewer where they dont even suspect the deck to be the problem, everyone wants to check out the
Instruction is great, comes with a lot of good tips to help with presentation of the
effect. Even some different reveals that I prefer over the original reveal.
It is pricy,
and you will have to replace signed cards, but it is an AMAZING effect, just check the video out!

This is another very visual trick. Not hard to do and amazes the audience. Only a 4 because you
cannot hand everything out for inspection and you do not end clean. That being said, with some
audience management this can be minimized.

Great to carry around an have an awe factor that leave them beside themselves
Great trick, but frustrating in a different way. Honestly will never buy again from Andrew Gerard
and SansMind because of using "OCD" as some kind of adjective. OCD is a mental disorder, and not
some adjective to be used in a magic trick. Not cool. Severely disappointed in the poor word choice
and perpetuation of mental health stigma.
