I have had this for quite some time and it’s been one of my favorite card effects this year. Really easy to do- the deck does all the work for you and it gets very good reactions. There is no roughing or sticky stuff either. The gimmicked deck can only be used for this effect, but that should be obvious regardless of the method since it’s half blue and half red, which also provides the necessary justification to switch decks openly. The only potential downside is it will be the same card every performance, but I don’t see that as an issue as plenty of effects are this way. If you like the performances in the trailer, you should get this- I strongly recommend it.


No roughing or sticky stuff... makes this intriguing. But seeing as it's somewhat obvious how you'd do a version of this *with* that, I'm still left wondering if this method is worth it just for the lack of roughing/sticky. It might be... or... it might not be. If it doesn't make any difference to the spectators, then what's the advantage. So, without revealing the method, can anyone who knows the details here explain what the benefit is of this approach to doing it with SF or whatnot?

Ok. Just realised any card can be chosen (26) which is a big bonus. Thought you had to force a single gaffed card. I’m deffo getting this when it arrives over the pond. In fact it’s probably already here considering James is English.


I don’t do this sort of effect, though I enjoying lurking and watching performances like this

I found it interesting that the any card being chosable (well cough, “half” the time) was a selling point

It feels tricks like this are for ppl who have no card skills. I myself have none. But you could do any force and the spec can actually hold the card and look at the whole card... and you can change the predicted card.... and the deck is freely examinable

It seems like tricks are made for lazy magicians who can’t be bothered working at their art

As I said I have no card mechanic skills of my own

And in a way, if ppl are too lazy to learn, why shouldn’t others make tricks for them

I just found the concept interesting.

This is a nice effect

Looked good

Again not my sort of material but it looked good

And full marks on the demo showing the effect properly

When I say any card can be chosen, they can choose any but it will always be the same value, if you get my drift.

I'm not sure I do, nevertheless, Inokan to order thus, because I just like the effect and the simplicity of it.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

I have neither of these but just for completeness you may want to consider this very similar effect "Quantum Leap" as well. It's a little cheaper I think (like a buck maybe.)
Anyway, I have neither so I cannot compare as to which I may like best.

I ordered from Penguin. Their page said "in stock."

Ordered too from Anthony himself. Would be interesting to know if the 26 gaffs are different in each set in order for potential refill packs.
