I love Blizzard but find that if you are going to use the handling that comes with it, the sh*ll provided is not great- it's too flimsy for my liking, so its better to buy and use one of the higher quality versions, or just use a completely different sw*tch.

Both tricks are good in their own way. If you are into having the deck examined thoroughly by people to prove they are blank, Blizzard is the one. To throw another routine into the mix, check out Aldo Colombini's "Draw a Blank". I believe it preceeded the others.




I was watching that dvd last night. I am on my way to Toronto to buy the decks needed. A really strong effect. I really enjoy Aldo's work.

I've been doing Blizzard for years now and EVERYTIME I do it I think I'm gonna get caught because the "move" you need to do just seems so bold, but of the hundreds of times I've done it I never got caught because the misdirection is so smooth. The people that see this trick done are simply floored. There aren't many effects that amaze people as much as this. I always step back hope they take it upon themselves to examine the cards, and they often do, because they are so shocked at what just happened.

This is a modern classic!

The discussion thread are interesting - will acquire White Bikes just out of interest. I own "Blizzard" love it, but for table hopping I'm using Aldo Colombini's "Draw a blank".

I preferred "White Bikes" and used it for years. I worked with "Blizzard" as well and personally REALLY ENJOYED the sneakiness involved Smile

White Bikes worked better for me because I had a much better presentation for it that allowed me to really enjoy the routine and become deeply involved with the participants. Also, it was much easier for me to handle in some situations (no table).

Both routines are great. I would suggest considering each of them.

I prefer blizzard, but with a equivoque (spelt right?) at end where spec has shuffled the 4 cards and placed down. (Plenty of time to do sneaky stuff, get them to concentrate on shuffle). I feel that its better that the spec 'chooses' and ends up with their card and then turn the rest over.
