I have a need to force objects using a deck but it can't be a playing card deck with stickers on it. Ideally I would want to fully customise the deck to my requirements. All suggestions are welcomed.

Must also add that I want the deck to be in the spectator's hands.

Google!

but if you want to force something, and its in the specs hands, you can apply certain traditional gimmicked decks to other material...

the c**-d****r force for example could also be used with a non-gimmicked set up...

I do not want to be overly controlling in my instructions though. The CD force has too much procedural involvement for what I require.

I'm not here to change your mind!

and there's always more than one way to skin a cat...you may not have to force in the traditional sense at all...but good luck in your search...

I need to force two objects but I realise this will require a deck switch with two forcing decks. What I need is a force deck with minimal instructions to the participant. At first I attempted to use cards with all the same object on each card but it cannot be displayed.

See the Looch - Your Thoughts are Mine DVD and The Collector specifically. It sounds somewhere around what you are looking for and very easy to create.

Hi you should check out Bill Abbot's Customizable Smart-Ass deck. It is basicaly a blank smart-ass deck that you can customise and the spec can handle( but not examine)
Very good product.
Edit Just noticed that you need to force two objects. you might use 2 decks if possible, but otherwise the Smart-Ass deck my not be what you are looking for.

I think the cut d****r f***e may suit your needs.[can easily be set for a second object].

edit:I just noticed IAIN already suggested it.[I am not surprised] Smile

The impression of procedural involvement can vanish...IMO,if the presentation is well planned.

Two consecutive CD'er forces work well for me- the first one done by the mage as an example, the next, in the spec's hands.

You're looking for a range force with a range of two. Jim Gerrish's "Brainpower" in The Wizards' Journal #12 will show you how to do this with a regular deck of playing cards, and then you can apply the principle to any deck you have in mind without resorting to a "forcing deck" of any type.

You can force two cards that way with the single force, à la Welcome to the Firm - "The Witness".

Of course.However,the way I like to do this is:Do the first CDF;lay the face up cards aside;remove the 1st.force card;place the cards in hand on the face up pile;Repeat CDF;remove 2nd.force card.

I'd highly recommend the 'Double Blank Svengali Decks'...now who sells those? Smile

It is possible also to force two object with a single deck, this is covered in the eBook that you get when you purchase.
