I have in the past owned the ambitious card ending by daryl, where the card is wrapped in rope and the card is placed in the middle and it obviously still gets to top, but was wondering if there were any other gimmick versions where the deck is wrapped in rope, rubber band or string. I know David regal uses a gimmick card in his ambitious routine.

I know to some degree slights can accomplish but specifically I'm interested in gimmick versions where the top card can be shown as not theirs once wrapped up.

Thanks in advance

I do a phase and I don't remember where it comes from... it is not gimmicked.

What they see:
Card goes in the middle
I wrap the deck in a rubber band (tight)
They peek the top card AFTER it is wrapped, confirming it is not their card
They lay their hand flat, wrapped deck goes on their hand
(magic gesture)
They remove the top card from the banded deck (still in their hand)- it is their card

PM me for the secret stuff.

I've also seen gimmicked card cases for this effect marketed. Search penguin for "ambitious" and "case"

Scott F Guinn has a clever version of Daryl's Ambitous card.

Paul,
I don't know if this qualifies as something you are after, but Craig Petty's 'Quarenteed' results at the end of the ACR in the deck being found to be still in its celephane wrapping. It's pretty neat if you like to ring in gimmicks into your routine. Definately a strong alternative to using an omni deck. Less to carry than doing Daryl's ultimate ambition (i.e no rope etc)

Thanks guys. Im not really looking for an end to my routine per se, rather I have a nice idea of a way to end in a similar fashion to daryl but without ringing in "the deck" I just wanted to see if the idea was already out there to save me the effort. It's not 100% perfect so was trying to get some ideas or just happy to use someone elses version instead. I just have in my head that I want to do something lime daryl's but without the pocket space required for the gimmick.
