My very first impression is that this leans towards "puzzle." Yes, it will fool people but were they fooled because they couldn't figure out the puzzle as opposed to being fooled leaving a sense of wonder that magic offers when presented properly. Can this be presented so to create that kind of wonder? I wonder. Actually I like it, but....

It doesn't come off as a puzzle. I've performed it for three years, to spectators from age 8 to 70s. In your head, it will be very procedural. In your spectator's head, it will be mindreading. I carry it in my wallet and absolutely love it. If you purchase from Penguin, you'll get access to the private forum where I and others have added many tips and nuances that will help even more.

The trailer and tutorial use a three-phase routine: 1) reveal with the cards face up, 2) faster reveal with the cards face up, 3) reveal with the cards face down. I like to do the first reveal and say "Maybe I'm just a really fast speller." Then I skip the middle reveal and go for the face-down kicker. With no letters in play, the spectator can't think it's a puzzle. It's really beautiful.
