<An astonishing effect that can be perfomed with a normal deck of cards!

An envelope is shown and a spectator names ANY number between 1 and 52. A normal deck of cards is dealt in a pile by the spectator and the card at their number is removed. A prediction is taken from the envelope by the spectator and it contains the exact name of the selected card.>



...If you are looking for the 'Holy Grail' of (A)CAAN's - then this isn't it. It's based on 'Orbital' by Trevor Lewis (credited), and if you can find it, you're better off with the original.

The supplied instructions aren't particularly well written, as I feel there are significant omissions regarding the supplied envelope, which is well constructed - in fact, so well constructed you may have difficulty making a replacement (unless you're a dab-hand in DWE's)

You can get a bunch of these envelopes from Sam Dalal's trick "Solomon's seven seals" He calls them "Sam's switcher". I think they are the same envelopes, I couldn't believe it.

I was a bit put off by this as well. "37" is really good though.

Yeah, I've got that lurking around somewhere or other - the 'Solomon' envelopes are much larger than Oberon's though... you could probably hide a fully cased deck in there as well as the intended prediction slip...

This trick is very fiddly. I prefer his 37, much more direct, much more practical. Also my envelope ripped pretty easily.

When I recieved my "Solomon" it had three different sizes. The exact same size that Oberon uses for Out of orbit and 37.

37 really is great though. I like Bang on too.

...If '37' is so good, why no reviews here then???

How's " Master Deck by Marc Oberon " ?

Or is that the same thing as Out of Orbit?

I think so too Eric. I didn't like it when I opened it. After I played with it for a few days, the reactions were great. I never let people touch my stuff anyway so examination is no problem for me.
