I second John's recommendation. I've combined Dick's 52 on 1 with Bill Abbott's Smart Ass.

I have had KK for years now and in my version I have to eliminate half the pack. I gather from the above that this has all changed. Does anyone know if this new version is just as easy to use and can you show the inside of the wallet to the specs?

Any tips on how to overcome the spec thinking you have multiple cards in your wallet? 52 on 1, makes my front pants pocket too thick.

If you get a shogun wallet you can keep all your cards on one opening. On the other end's opening...a couple bucks and you can show it otherwise empty.

Best,

For KK I usually say " in my wallet I have a pack of all 52 cards .." and then try to find it unsuccessfully . This makes the idea of having ANY thought of card ridiculous . Then " ...although only one is visible " .
In addition I do try and verbally force some cards and often there is some connection with the named card that I can imply was deliberate .
The funniest was a remark about 7 dwarfs was followed by the selection of 7 of Diamonds . KK is also a great out/finish to experimental verbal/mental forces.
Its one of the best , especially for the impromptu situation.

There is a similar effect in "Sean Waters - Ponderings" called Avalon, if you liked Kolossal Killer then you will love that one too.

I do this effect under the title "Heirloom" which is the same basic concept.

I chose to purchase the "Heirloom wallet" that's sold by Alakazam. While it's
true that I could probably have found something cheaper at a department
store, your time is worth something. If I have to choose between riding around
to different stores, checking the wallets and possibly buying one that I think
will work (but won't).....or spending a little extra to get a wallet made
specifically for this effect.....well, your time is worth something. Smile

Great effect, though, no matter which way you go!

One could use a regular wallet for this effect, but I think that having the official wallet is a better way to go since one can show the wallet empty after removing the card due to the ingenious design.

I've tried it both ways and they're both good. But having the extra convincer takes it into the miracle class level, IMHO.

That might be true I guess as when I first saw it performed (Paul Daniels Magic Show)I was amazed that anyone would bother performing it as it seemed blatently obvious.

I hate it. At least I did until I saw John Archer's presentation of it. Without John's presentation I still hate it. With John's presentation it magically becomes the brilliant effect that everyone claims it already is.

Just my opinion.

I do a variation on John Archer's routine (Educating Archer), which I think is by far the best version to date. Hilarious and with strong magic. That's an unbeatable combination.

I use a variation on John Archer's as well and I would agree with Mumblemore it is the best for the style of performance I do.

Pocket Space still packs a punch and is very easy to perform. You do need four cards in your wallet and one in your pocket, but that's not difficult.

Quick question for everybody about this kind of thought: do you love/hate tricks based on method or plot? Neal, for example, is plot. I happen to think this is the best way to judge something (you can find a million methods but a good plot is gold). However, when reading Neal's post, I realized that he could have missed out on something good because he was so focused on plot that he ignored the fact the same method can be used for other plots (such as Archer's).

I know it's not STRICTLY a review of KK but, after carrying around my version of KK for a couple years, I use the principle is totally different ways now, making me enjoy it a lot more.

What thinkest thou?
