I ordered this trick 5-6 days ago and I finally got it Smile

The Effect: The effect is so straitforward. A spectator freely selects a card from any deck. No force of any kind. You know the name of the card before he sees it!!

No sleights. No palming. No stooges. No threads or body attachments. No magnets. Your hands are absolutely empty! You can use a borrowed deck and perform sitting or standing!

The gimmick you get is very clever and I can guarantee you that you'll never come close in guessing what it is.

I had to agree with Martin
though... it is a bit overpriced Smile But mastering this trick will make it well worth your money, which isn't that hard really. IE will make you expand your creativity wether you're a begginer or an expert.

This is one of the most diabolical fool-proof trick I've ever bought Smile The spectators will never come close on guessing what the gimmick is, even though it's right in front of them.

You can use any deck of cards even borrowed (I recommend you use a borrowed deck so that you don't get accused of using a marked deck... It'll also make the trickd more mind-boggling and ashtonishing), have them shuffle it to their hearts content before the trick, cut the cards a thousand times etc... It doesn't matter since you'll still guess their card 100% accurate. You can also do the trick standing up, which is Denis Marks preferred position.

I'magine this... You're in a table sorrounded by five cute girls. Have each of them pick a card face down and hide it so you can't see it. Hold their hands and rub it, divine the color of their card, divine the suit of their card, then finally divine the number of their card. Do this to all of them and they'll be talking about you for quite a long time.

The only cons I found in this trick is that you can't turn your back around or close your eyes while performing the trick. Also you have to hold the deck while doing the trick, the spectator can't have the deck while they pick their card (but I have my own patter which is 100% effective... I can still find out what their choosen cards are even if they have the deck, my eyes closed or my back turned Smile)

Also if you want you can have them cover the back of the cards while you're holding it, then they pick their card with their other hand.

You'll recieve a booklet containing a brief history of the IE and three tricks including "Out Of This World" which fooled Paul Curry and of course the Invisible Eye.

Overall I give this trick a 9.5 out of 10 (Excellent) A prop every magician should be without. It'll fool everybody and most definitely almost all magicians, it doesn't matter wether they're a rookie or professional.

Close-Up and Mental Magician

Alright time to go back and practice some more Smile I've already performed the trick to a couple of my friends, my brother, and my mom and they're all I'mpressed (except my mom... well she's never I'mpressed on any of my magic Smile)

I love doing the trick since it's so diabolically clever and the gimmick is very undetectable.

I just did the "Out Of This World Trick" to one of my friends and well, I'll let the smilies show you her reaction... Smile.....Smile..... Smile..... Smile

Oh I forgot this trick is hard to find but you can purchase it from Hanklee.

Thanks to Martin from for all the help.

That is the kind of thing that I'mpresses magicians. Laymen can't appreciate the fairness of it because they don't know what any of the options are. To them it is a very simple and dry, possibly even boring effect! I wouldn't get it unless I wanted to fool another magi...IF IT WILL fool magicians of course.
If you get bored go to and watch some magic.

I haven't performed it to a couple of my magician friends yet. But I'm really sure they'll never figure out the secret or even come close to guessing the gimmick.

I'll try "The Odd Card" trick on one of them and let's see what happens.
