Can you tell some reactions you got with this incredible deck? I've heard some funny ones, although I don't know if they are true, but I've heard about people almost fainting and asking for glasses of water. I wouldn't get shocked Smile Smile Smile like that if I didn't know how to do it, would you ?

I remember showing it to a friend of mine that always knows how magic goes. He thinks he can figure out all my effects. After seeing this great effect, he excaimed: I know how you did it....You knew which card I was going to think of.Smile

Those comments sound as if they may be from dealer adverts!! Smile

You got that right Paul ! Smile Smile
It was from someone who had bought it and had done it to his mother, it was on a dealer's site.

I've been doing this trick for years and the best reaction came from a young man with cerebral palsy one holiday season at a mall.

It was the last show of a three day run, Sunday late afternoon, in the middle of a major Nor'easter snow storm. No one was left at the mall. We were hoping to be able to skip the last show when three people entered the mall commnity room to see the show - the aforementioned young man and his two parents. Well, the show must go on.

He was full of energy and enthusiasm, and really enjoying the show. When I turned over his card, he looked more amazed than anyone I've ever seen.

Then he turned to his Dad and said,"That was amazing...how did I know that?"

He truly was magical...

Let's see, the top three responses would be:

3 "Would you like to go to the casino with me sometime?"

2 "You Scare Me."

1 "I bet you get a lot of girls." - I only wish that were true! Smile

With the proper performance you will almost always get an "amazed" response. I like to use the Invisible Deck as part of a presentation and not on its own, I find it works even better that way. One of my booklets has a wonderful effect using the Invisible Deck in this manner ... it has always worked wonders for me.

I've had the ID for over a year, but could never get the cards separated properly, and thus did not feel comfortable doing it.

After reading various tips here at the Café last week, I tried it out on Friday for a group of 10-15 people (after using some good ol' hand lotion).

Since it was a larger group, I got many of them involved. One chose a color, one chose a suit, one chose a high or low number, and another chose the exact number. This is all in addition to the most important person there, the girl who actually *shuffled* the imaginary deck -- she did a great job!

When I pulled the actual deck out of my pocket, I did so slowly and deliberately. I could already hear the "No way!" "He didn't, did he?"

While the reaction was good, I overheard some of them later talking amongst themselves, saying things like, "I really don't know. After all, it really was a random card!"

It was enough to make me not want to put this deck away again -- as long as I have my hand lotion with me!

That really is funny how people think they predicted the card that was turned over. Instead of you predicting the card they were going ot say.. that's probably the funniest thing that has happened to me aswell.

Yeah, but it's the best reaction. It enpowers the spectator, creates an emotional link, and gets the 'heat' off the deck.

As you will with any good card trick properly rehearsed and presented. Smile

This was one of the first things I bought back in the mid 70's. This was part of a routine that first impressed my hard to impress Uncle. 30 years later he asked me to perform at his and my aunt's(his wife) 60th anniversary party.

It got great reactions then and still does when I get it out on a rare occasion.

Lay People and that's who helps pay the mortgage love it.(No I did not charge them for the Nearly Normal Anniversary Show.

Of course bringing in the deck after doing some other card magic makes it much more strong.

I had one guy say something like this.

'wait, you're looking at the cards face face up, anybody can find a persons named card that way'

so why is your card the only one face down?

..pause...'oh I get it, you just turned the cards that weren't mine over, so you really didn't know my card'

so I asked him what he meant, and he told me that since he only picked one card that 'statistically' the odds were in my favor that I could turn over the most of the deck and have it not be his card.

There just was no convincing him.

Ha! There's just no fooling some people (at least in their mind).
