After recently picking up his very clever Akkelian Envelopes, I decided to check out some of the other releases by Spidey.

Sneak peek aka Bubble peek is a very deceptive handling for business card peek.

Although it wasn't originally based on Acidus Novus, it is probably safe to call it a version as the basic location of the peek is the same. Spidey does have permission from Millard Longman.
Beyond the location of the writing, it's actually pretty different than the original AN handling.

It is very deceptive and may even fool those that are familiar with AN since the actual peek is disguised with an additional layer of deception.

All in all, it's good technique and it's only $7.... I'd suggest anyone looking for a nice deceptive peek to check it out.

Very nice peek. Thanks for the heads up.

LL, I appreciated the tip...picked this up, and quite liked it. I'd been looking for a better peek than what I've been doing, I don't want to name it and cheapen the already good peek that I'd been doing, but this feels stronger.

Thanks, 93

Yeah, surprised that this hasn't been more popular, although I guess it came out a few years ago. I have noticed one small limiting factor with this, which is that with poor lighting it is probably better to use a 2 digit number or initials vs a longer word or number. With good lighting it doesn't seem to matter. Just something to consider.

Thank you Matthew for bringing this back to my attention.
The Sneak Peek was on my "to check out" list.

Just purchased it and very happy with it.
I think I am going to start with a which hand game before the reveal.
Explaining the which hand game, giving the card to them and then go into a which hand game before the reveal gives much more time between peek and revelation and the card is in their posession.

I consider this a secret weapon when performing. If someone has seen me use Acidus Novus and wants me to reveal something else - it's essentially the same procedure for the spectator but now the peek moment becomes that much more impossible to backtrack. 'Not only did they fold the card once, then fold it again, but it's now inside my closed fist - no way to see what's written...' ;)

Hey guys! Ready for a kick ass Idea just for the few lucky people on this thread?

You can do a great lie detector trick with this. So you take the billet back, tell them "I'm going to turn around and I want you to place your paper in your hand like this. Make sure theres NO way to see it from the top, or the bottom (indicate) and put both hands in front of you like this." Hand it back. For those in the know, you know when the peek is done.

Now you turn back to face them and say. Now I want you to decide whether you want to be a liar or a truth teller, totally up to you but you must commit. Now they choose.

you can now ask questions and have some fun and ONE of your questions just has to be "is your number even or odd?" And when they answer you say "of course I don't know if that's true or not, but I think I'm onto something"

now you know if they're lying or telling te truth so you ask "is it in this hand"

So now you've used the knowledge they don't know you have in order to find the billet. And now you can go on to reveal the number. If you should so choose.

Thanks for sharing your additional thoughts! I'm glad I spent the $7 on it and will enhance it next time with a which hand game :)

I think it's fine. 3.5/5 because I have small hands :(

That shouldn't take away points on the effect. Just because you have small hands.

The move is kinda hard for me because of it so it's not as easy for me to accomplish. So yeah it does since it's my review.

The name should have tipped us off.

I really like this. Demonstrating holding it in your fist is a much better twist than having them tear it up and hold a torn piece for a psychometry trick that I do.

Wouldn't a smaller billet fix this problem?

I like this. There is an additional prep/handling to the billet compared to the standard AN, but I think this is a bit more deceptive as well.
