Passport to Marked Decks by Phill Smith and DMC - Book

Price: $20.00
In stock: usually ships within 24-48 hours!

A 32 page pocket-sized handbook for performing incredible magic with the DMC ELITES marked deck, the Passport to Marked Cards contains 9 amazing pieces of close-up card magic ready to be performed by magicians of any skill level. Written by acclaimed magic creator (and designer of the ELITES) Phillip Smith, the effects in the Passport walk users through the features of the deck and introduce key concepts that will elevate your magic and your use of the ELITES playing cards.

Each effect is clearly explained and broken down into Effect and Method, and requires no previous knowledge of card magic or using marked cards. Ranging from quick and simple to layered and devious, the book contains effects that are fun and straightforward to perform. You will learn how to do the legendary inference read and know what card the spectator has chosen without even seeing the marks. You'll also be able to memorize the deck in a heartbeat and even inexplicably know the audience member's exact date of birth!

A simple guide to a range of high-impact, professional-grade card tricks with the marked deck that anyone can do. The Passport to Marked Cards will be shipping mid-October in sync with the DMC ELITES forest green deck.

I was convinced to buy this because of a video review claiming "these are not just simple marked deck tricks, there's multiple layer of deceptions in here!"
The first trick is "glimpse the marking", reveal the card.
Another one is "use the one way feature", reveal the card.
Another one is "use the marking" for Bob Hummer's m***l m***e. Really? I was hoping for a haha! moment but so far nothing. I love Phill Smith's work, he is a genius, but this booklet is definitively sub-par by his own standards.
I haven't finished the book as there might be an actual gem and the reason is...
...this book is really hard to read. Making it look like a passport is a cute idea. Pushing it to the limit with the choice of the font face, size and page background? Not so good. I am in my forties, my vision is not at the apex, but I normally don't need glasses. This booklet is literally HARD to READ.
I will amend this review if I find a trick really worth the purchase. Best suggestion for the deck owners out there is to use the feature of the deck with tricks that don't require a marked deck at all: C3 or devastation are great examples and you would be using layers impossible to backtrack to accomplish miracles.

This little booklet is awesome! It is my first book on marked decks - so for me everything was new and I wasn’t aware how much you can get out of a marked deck. The routines described allow you to perform very cool tricks with your marked deck, most of them easy to learn and to do. I am very pleased to have bought it.
