Topic: Dick Barry's New Effect " Intuition"
Message: Posted by: blackmagicguy (Jun 16, 2020 07:49PM)
This is a cool effect for Close-up, Strolling, Family Game Night, even an occasional Bar Bet. Don't forget you are in complete control of the outcome. Your mark, is guessing and you are choosing the outcome. It is packaged nicely, packs small and plays big. You can do this right out of the case, and for those who feel you might be reading the backs of the cards to make your prediction, you can do it blindfolded, behind your back, or under the table. All you have to do is make the prediction verbally before you bring the card out to place it next to included red or black markers. I have really enjoyed the simplicity of this effect. You can learn the technique in just a few minutes and the more you handle the cards the better you get. This is a winner for me because it easy to understand, even easier to explain and very fast to play. It is fun with different outcomes each time you do it. This is a small card effect you will carry with you and be excited to challenge your friends with! Nice Job Dick Barry! (Handled by Hocus-Pocus Magic)

Looks good. It talks about out of this world type tricks. We all love those.

What are the colored markers for. To keep Score?

Blackmagicguy and John C - Thank you both for your comments regarding my latest trick "INTUITION". I love "Out of this World" and this has the same theme but works entirely differently.
It is really a magic trick disguised as a game. The faces of the cards are not marked. You secretly know if the card is black or red by just picking it up. The markers mentioned by
John C are small laminated squares that are black and red and tell where to place the card the player thinks is black or red. Comes in a beautiful black metal box. A fun trick for all ages.

So good to learn Dick is creating more magic. I had thought you went full retirement. Have met you at many Stan Kramien Magic Jubilees and Ring lectures.

Hi Steve,

Yes, at 87 I am still in love with magic. I now live just down the road from you in Portland, OR.

Is it sort of like the esp card routine of yours Dick? With the circle and square and then introduce the triangle? Same method?
Message: Posted by: Dick Barry (Jun 19, 2020 10:49PM)
John C - No, these are cards with a checker board design on the backs and the fronts of the card are simply a black or red color. The cards are not marked on the fronts and is nothing
like my ESP trick of the past. This is a brand new trick with a new mthod you will love.

Got the effect today. I've been purchasing Dick's tricks for decades. This is another winner, with the premise being a "game" where the other player guesses whether dealt face down cards are red or black and the count tallied. Then you do the same. You always know exactly what color the card faces are. And you can decide how many cards you want to win (or lose) by. The cards are not marked. The method is undetectable.Extremely well made and easy to do. Thanks Dick, for keeping the magic coming! Lee Cornell

Where can I find it? My usual retailers don't seem to have it...

Espmagic, Hocus-Locus Magic is selling it. Thanks for your inquiry.

Espmagic, Sorry I made a typo above. Hocus-Pocus Magic in Fresno, CA is selling my trick. Thanks for asking.

Dick - do you have a Canadian retailer for this effect? Shipping from Fresno is very close to the purchase price of the effect(!). And then, add on the exchange rate...:-(

Espmagic, I know the feeling on shipping! I am really retired and only make a few props. Hocus-Pocus Magic has all I made. They just released my latest effect called "THE CLOUD". Check it out.
