Patrick Redford is a great thinker in mentalism, and Description is a great way to check out his
- Clever principle is very easy to understand and use immediately
forcing, fishing, peeking, or anything like that.
- Requires only a new deck of Bicycle cards, a
pen, and one other non-magic thing you already have at home
- Video goes into thorough detail
about the method and psychology and includes many options and bonuses
- It's an impromptu trick
with cards that's not a card trick
- Virtually no reset
- Would have been
nice if the video included a performance. It's still easy enough to figure out, but there's one
aspect of patter or timing that Patrick never actually explained.
- The box is examinable
depending on which version you choose, but the longer the spectator examines it the more likely the
method is to be exposed.
- Wouldn't work with most borrowed decks.
All in all, this is
a great trick for the price, and a fine introduction to Patrick's brilliant work on mentalism.
