A story is told about a fortuneteller. As the mage tells his story he illustrates it using old tarot cards. Regardless of the choices made, one always meets death. However death is the better option than who he truly meets in the end. The surprising revelation will leave your audience gasping.

This piece of bizarre magic can be performed quickly or with more of a story depending on your audience. It is a piece that really packs a punch and allows you to focus on storytelling and your audience.

You get three hand cut cards. No three are exactly alike so your set will be unique. Obviously it will differ somewhat from the photographs. You also get an aged envelope for the cards and an instruction booklet. The booklet is 5.5" by 8.5" and is full color and saddle stitched. It includes Peter Marucci's original routine, a routine by Paul Prater and one by Christopher Gould.

No difficult sleight of hand, no switches, ends clean!

I was looking for something to perform around Halloween time, and picked this up. This definitely fit the bill. If you’ve seen the video, then you know what to expect out of the performance. I gave it Five Stars because it’s quick and effective, and very easy to perform. If you have experience with cards already, you can perform this in five minutes. If not then 15 minutes of practice is all a beginner would need. I made up my own story to fit my location.

Brilliant trick which is easy to do for all levels of magician.
Very well written booklet with great storytelling, but watch the demo so you’ll easily picture what is going on.
This is a beautiful trick that ends clean and inspectable.
It’s a great monte routine with a spooky tale.
Without giving away the trick, the card art is unique and very cleverly designed. Ingenious method.
Great trick to have in any magic show, stage or walk around routine.

The effect is excellent . The props, cards & envelope, are nicely antique looking. Handling is easy. No difficult sleights. You do need a story telling ability. The accompanying booklet is a great help. Provides routines & presentations by Paul Prater & other magicians. A perfect card effect for someone looking for something a little different. Plays well in conjunction with similar themed effects. I enjoy performing this as the handling is so simple that I can focus on the telling of the tale.

Can’t say enough good things about this trick. From the story to the props to the method it’s all brilliant. The only negative thing to say is there were a few errors in the booklet one which made the method a bit confusing at first. That being said do not hesitate to buy this still a 5/5 for me!

Paul's "The Witch of Glastonbury" is a clever twist on the CM routine using tarot cards and a mysterious fortune telling routine. I like the patter by Chris Gould. It adds a different hype and story well suited for a suberb performance. I highly recommend

Nice props and story. Report this review

This is really a great little trick! Bizaaaaaaarrrre.....
You get 3 "old looking" arcades, a parchment envelope with a esoteric drawing on it and a nice booklet with 3 stories to tell during your act.
The routine and gimmick are also explained in the booklet, but by looking at the video shown here on the Penguin site, it's easy to replicate with the arcanes in your hands. The props are well made and will last for long if handled correctly.
Price-quality this trick is TOP.
Buy it!
The illusion is out there......

This product fits perfectly in my program of early American magic. The technique is easy to learn, but the real key is in the presentation. If you are a good storyteller and can create the right atmosphere, this is a winner.
Would have been a 5-Star rating if the set-up and the handling directions were in the same place, and the cards could have been larger.
Good quality. Worthwhile investment. Leaves them wondering.
