It seems, every time I publish an effect, there are hundreds of magicians who read the description and think "Aah, that's too good to be true" and dismiss it. It's sad. We've been bombarded with so much marketing hype from magic shops and bedroom inventors that it numbs our child-like enthusiasm when a new trick sounds amazing.

I create magic to share. To help magicians create wonder. It's what I do, and what fulfills me. So it's frustrating to me how many magicians out there, who could benefit from my work just don't know more about it.

I'm trying an experiment with BOSS. For magicians only, I'm going to pull back the curtain on the workings of my latest formal release, Battle of the Sexes. I guarantee it will be an eye opening experience.

This Halloween day, Friday October 31st, I'm going to be giving out a special trick-treat for magicians around the world.

BEFORE THEN: To be invited to this very special event, you'll need to sign up for the invite list. There's a form on the left side of my blog Enter your email address and click "Subscribe".

On Friday, I will send you a secret, temporary URL you can follow to watch a private webcast of me, sharing the amazing new principle used in BOSS.

DeadDave, not sure why you don't have a PM link. Send me your email and I'll add it manually. I'm just a few hours from sending out the invite.

Psychic, same for you.

Great effect and premise, great method!

The only thing I would change is to switch it around so the man sees love and the woman sees sex, and talk about how stereotypes can be broken etc.

I think that would be nicer, funnier and less risky, I don't think a woman would take offence it is possible that a bloke might.

But its great I'm defianately going to get it! Its a shame, all magic used to be sold like this, if you liked the method you would buy it. And it shows how most effects nowadays are just re-hashes because otherwise they would do this too!

Congrats Alvo.

Alvo, It must have been a problem on my end. I got it to work fine by re-trying a while later.

Great effect! I'll be ordering! Thanks!

It's a large video and does take a few minutes to download. But it is well worth the wait.

Great Alvo, I appreciated too. As I'm french I'm indeed concerned with the words you can choose : Can I write myself those on the ????? (gimmick) ? Could I also find a method without buying several to change those words ?

Or do I have to use those you will be selling ? Is that why you suggest to everybody to share their thoughts about what to write on it ?

I'm sorry my english isn't perfect I perhaps I did'nt understand that final part of your video, please tell us more about this, thanks !

Many possibilities, especially when considering you can have both looking at the card at the exact same time, with correct blocking of course.
