Hey, guys. Two new PDFs are up on my site. "Reorder" is a printing effect with two surprise endings and "Chop The Monte" is a monte-type effect with a big surprise at the finish. The nice thing is that the effect is customizable. The cards don't have to be Aces. They can be cards with messages on them or Sevens or whatever you want!

Also, my site has a new name. A whole new site is in the works as well.

These tricks are awesome!
From a quick read, I especially love 'Reorder' very clever indeed!

OK- quick delivery as usual with Mr. Francis' downloads. I did a quick read and my premonition was correct. These are sweet tricks. The handling is pretty darn easy and very easy for a seasoned magician. Though the handling is easy, you can see the visuals throughout the effects are super nice. You know the old adage- "The simpler the effect, the more amazing it is" and this definately fits for these. The instructions are top notch! For the price- you cannot go wrong! Another great job Cameron!

I mentioned that Chop The Monte is customizable but so is Reorder. You can have anything written on the backs of the cards. Or you can use blank backs instead of red backs. Whatever you want.

Reorder is cleverly constructed and we can see you've worked a lot to put as much effects as you could with just a few cards.

About Chop the Monte, the ending is very strong and really looks impossible.

I came up with another simple idea: don't use the Joker. Instead, use three 2S and one QH. At the end, show that it was impossible to win because you actually had... three 2H and one QS.

Best,

RAPH.

That's a fun idea. Of course, with that handling, you could do it with a smaller amount of cards and you only need to go to the pocket once.

I prefer to have the cards change into completely different cards because, well, you can! Smile It's what the M.O. was designed to do.

I think you misread me. I don't say that you start with three 2S and one QH and ends up with three QH and one 2S. (this was the original idea I emailed you).

Here I say you start with three 2S and one QH and ends up with three 2H and one QS. So you have four cards at the end that are different from the four cards at the beginning. Smile

But yes, you still may prefer to end up with four aces or whatever.

Yup again some winners from Cameron....
Chop the Monte is easy to follow, visual and incredible this is a routine I will have lots of fun with!
Reorder I have to practice again but this sure is a good one with a nice kicker at the end. I love the fact that there are no gaffs or gimmicks used and that they really look like magic. Cameron has made a great use of some moves which are clearly explained in the PDF.

The tricks are good but since it are packet tricks you cannot use a 'normal' deck. The cards are normal and nothing is applied in any way and everything can be inspected (but isn't needed). Just have them set in your wallet or pocket and you're ready to go!
The reset for Chop the Monte is also very short...

It's really a no brainer.

Guys thank you so much for the great response to these two items! I'm glad so many people are getting use out of them.

Honestly, I thought Reorder would be the biggest hit but it seems that Chop the Monte and the bonus effect are getting the most buzz. Probably because they can both be done completely in the hands.

Hey everyone,

Cameron's effects are pure gold. I had so much fun meeting him and hanging with him at T.A.O.M last week.

I picked up a bunch of his effects there too. He has a brilliant mind when it comes to creating magic and I already use his Annihilator deck, Exchange Rate and a bunch of his other offerings in my close up act.

Do yourself a huge favor and get these two gems. You will be so happy you did!

He really knows how to put out strong, usable in the real world workable magic!

Well done on these new ones Cameron!

Tony
As magicians we create what onlookers call magic. If they truly believe in what we have created for them to witness then magic is real!!!
