First off, the add picture is a lie. Technically someone could argue that it's not, but I say it is. Not a big deal though, just pointing it out.

Secondly, I don't have much faith in this effect but I will try it and see how it goes. I was expecting something WAY better than this.

I think that the method for correcting the situation when a spectator misremembers the suit of their card is genius. It's not his idea, but it's a nice way to apply the concept.

This effect is easy to do and if it's as good as these guys claim it is then I say go ahead and buy it, but I'm definitely not sure yet how good it really is. I saw the picture of the scatter of cards and I thought to myself "what a rip-off, this isn't fooling ANYONE."

Those are my thoughts for now.

This is EXACTLY what I thought it would be and I am very pleased with the work. I am rarely satisfied with an "out of the box" way of doing things, so I will adjust this for my tastes. This will play just as described and is a very practical way of using this methodology. If the pieces suit you, then you should give this a try (and I am sure you'll be happpy). If you've "been around" for a while, the method should not be a surprise, but I think most people should be happy with the streamlined and improved work here. Very well done. I am already making my adjustments (to suit my style) and will continue to do this.

I have had this a couple days, and will certainly be putting a review up over the next week or two. I think it is a brilliant culmination of several old techniques to create a great effect, and it is an awesome centre piece when people see the card around your neck, they are instantly wanting to know what is on the other side, and want to see that effect. I perform the Destination Box by Jon Allen at every table, and everyone wants to see 'the box trick', 'Whats in the box?', is what I get all the time. So now I have something else they can focus on and ponder...what is the point of that? I have also thought about the prediction being a text to someones phone. For those of you who have read Mindblasters, and my 'Predictext' effect in there, will see how this will work really well with this effect as well.

From a workers point of view, it is easily one of the most workable and commercial routines I have come across so far, and it has gone staight into my act. With an effect like this, it isn't something you can practice by yourself, you must perform it to people, so if you are trying to get out there, get some confidence etc, then this is for you as well! Devin, top notch as always, and the instructions are first rate. There are some clever tips and ideas that can be applied to multiple effects and routines, so these are invaluable too.

My advice to people, is don't just sit there with it and wonder how it will play, or if it will fool people/fly right by etc, it will, and it will get great reactions. Have confidence and have faith. My favourite Devin Knight release yet! Just ahead of Blindsight!

Hai Devin, could this effect be worked for parlour and stage performance? If yes, it will be really good. Thanks

It was originally designed for stage and parlor and plays best in those conditions. On stage I use a Jumbo card as the prediction.

Well I think I've seen enough positive reviews here to give it a try. The price is certainly reasonable. It sounds like it packs a very powerful ending and some good byplay along the way. Can be done walkaround or parlor setting. That's a lot for the money.

This was demoed to me at Blackpool yesterday.

The predicted card was indeed the very same card which I choose.

BTW when I was shown the 'picture' of the many face up cards I decided on one but then CHANGED MY MIND, however the prediction card was still correct.

Gonna buy this today for sure!

I love it when that happens. Often people tell me they did change their mind yet the predicted card is still correct. It appears you had the foresight to know he would change his mind.
