I purchased the locked deck at a local auction. It came with some picture instructions that for the life of me I can't figure out. Can anyone help me out with this effect?

I am certain Scott can help you, but, if you need additional information, feel free to PM me as well. This is a WONDERFUL effect with INSANE possibilities Smile In fact, once Scott does get you sorted, PM me and I will give one effect idea that I think is VERY powerful, and, I have not seen this idea of mine in the literature I have read, which is a considerable amount.

Best,
Vlad

PS: My idea would require you to purchase one other thing which I believe sells for 10.00 at most magic dealers if you don't want to use sleight of hand (and this is the stronger approach ironically. My other approach uses sleight of hand but is in a sense a bit weaker.

Hi Julie,

I am SOOO bad at keeping that box at a manageable level. I shall get it tidy by Monday.

Ahimsa,
Vlad

Yes, you are. Smile

ggarcia, sounds like Vlad is your "one-stop solution". As I don't have an work of my own on this effect, you'd probably be better served bypassing me and going directly to him.

Vlad, I bought the Zanadu Locked Deck on an Ebay auction and have used it at several parties to great entertainment. I am very interested to hear your idea. Are you willing to share that with me?

Many thanks!

I bought the locked deck years ago because the premise was great, but never really was satisfied with the instruction it gave. It was very vague like previously mentioned. I think about this deck every so often and still feel it's a great trick. Vlad_77 would you mind PM me also?

Zanadu's Locked Deck is a killer effect. Thanks for reminding us about. Now I will need to relearn it too!

I've been doing this with an airline deck and an airline name tag instead of the lock, with a story about lost luggage. The spectator fills out the name tag.
