I received and watched this today, and thought I’d post to clear up any confusion/questions. While I had bought this from Dani’s lecture in the past, I was interested in having video instruction for the main Triple Intuition effect, as well as seeing the other material that he added to the DVD that can be done with the deck. I figured there were bound to be some cool extra tips & tricks that I wasn’t aware of, especially in the timing and presentation department.

I have one major disappointment here - there is no video instruction of the methods. There are video performances, and the instructions are provided as a written PDF file with photos. Being that I already had written instructions for the main effect and one of my big reasons for making the purchase was actual video instruction, I’m definitely not thrilled. I think it’s pretty safe for any customer to assume that a DVD will have the performances and explanations in video format unless otherwise noted. If it’s done in a different manner, it should be made very clear from the start what you’re getting.

The PDF title page is written as “Triple Intuition Plus”, and while I haven’t compared the writeup to my original purchase, it looks like they’re the exact same written instructions from the main effect, now with explanations added for the new routines.

I received a Red Bicycle version of the deck with my DVD - I don’t know if they’re all like this, or if it’s a random mix of Red/Blue. The one I got from Dani’s original release was blue, as I believe he prefers to use a blue deck.

The DVD does include 3 routines - the classic Triple Intuition with 3 selections, as well as “Thought of Intuition” and “Intuition at a Number”. So the CAAN in the online demo IS on the project, but it is not the primary effect.

I’ve already stated earlier that the main routine is fabulous, and for me it’s worth the price of entry alone. Definitely a reputation-maker and very easy to do.

The other 2 effects are good, but I don’t enjoy them as much as the original routine. The “Thought of Intuition” has a spectator gradually eliminating cards (free choice of elimination) only to end up with only his thought-of selection remaining.

The CAAN is very fair and direct - there are some small pieces missing from the online demo, but I believe that’s for time, and not to be deceptive. You can absolutely use this in the real world and perform it the way Dani does on the preview. The beginning process involves a spectator thinking of a card, and the deck is randomized by giving your spectators each a portion of the deck to shuffle. The separate packets are then reassembled at random to bring the deck back together - proving beyond a doubt that it’s not in any particular order. While I personally prefer other ACAAN methods (and we all know there are many) this one is very fair and clean in terms of the card choice, number choice, randomization of the deck, and final reveal.

None of the routines is all that hard, thanks to the nature of the included deck. This one is more about performance style than technical ability, and it’s up to you to really sell it and make it hit your audiences hard. Dani is of course worth studying (check out his other releases) in terms of delivering a terrific performance.

If you have never purchased Triple Intuition before, I would certainly recommend picking this up, if you don’t mind having a video performance with written explanations. If you already have the basic release, or hate learning from written instructions, then I’d suggest passing on it.

I see that the effect "Triple Intuition" is on the "Utopia" DVD set, but is the effect that is shown on the Penguin magic site (The one where one participant names a number and the other names a card) is also on the "Utopia" DVD set?

You get a DVD with several performances plus a PDF on it with explanations. I like this package. You can make up the deck by yourself. Jan

That is true, I got one from him when he first brought it out at his lectures. I love the fact its fairly simple to just make up your own version with any back design you would like.

I use it in Parlor usually.

Terrific DVD! Original and amazing -- the pattern is annoying, but the performance is magical. Nat

Hey there everyone, This is David Peters, I work at Murphy's Magic Supplies. I see there is come that are confused. the demo trailer that is listed on this item is from the dvd. Dani has several routines on this dvd. Now, here comes the great news!!!! for anyone that buys this from a Murphy's Authorized Dealer will now have access to an explanation VIDEO in Spoken English!!! and we are posting the orininal routine (Spanish with English subtitles) on our site (dealers should have this on their too) This is a great trick for sure and thanks for your support!

Ok, I just got this. Let me say this first, I LOVE THIS GUY! - Dani. He's awesome. I own three or four of his items including the card fan force that comes with the current issue of Genii. He's BRILLIANT and an engaging performer.

Now on to the other stuff. On the DVD case of TRIPLE INTUITION it states:

90% HANDS OFF MAGIC, (simply not true)
NO SPECIAL SKILL REQUIRED (again, not really)
SPECIAL DECK DOES ALL THE WORK (FAR FROM IT)

Again, this is a terrifc set of routines if you can pull them off.

There is a special deck, but it DOES NOT DO ALL THE WORK! Instead of me going on about this let me just say to you, watch the videos that are online and at penguin and perhaps Murphys, you will notice Dani is doing a lot of work: shuffle, having others shuffle, managing cards etc. Is that really 90% hands off magic? He's handling the cards over 90% of the time. Believe me HE'S WORKING.

Look, I really meant what I said about Dani and I don't even want my money back. I buy most of his stuff just to see how the heck he does it.

But when this particular product stated 90% HANDS OFF AND SPECIAL DECK DOES ALL THE WORK. I thought, "Man, this is something of his I just may be able to pull off." And I suppose one of the effects I will take a stab at is TRIPLE INTUITION. It's the simplest one in the group.

Just let me leave you with this, THERE IS SPECIAL SKILL REQUIRED! May not be slieghts but SKILL.



God Bless you Dani!! You're the man!!

I think it just gets tiresome with sometimes exaggerated claims.

ID is 100% hands off and nearly self working - so is a MD - so is Get Sharky etc.

This may be an amazing effect by one of our most treasured performers but why the need to stretch the facts? Enough already

Did anyone ever explain why the video is not the classic Triple Intuition, where 3 spectators find their cards?

The classic Triple Intuition is pretty darn easy to do, there are no sleights really, you have to manage the deck.

saysold1, very well said!

John C, thanks for getting this and the review. The trailer and ad stating "90% hands-off magic, No special skill required, Special deck does all the work for you" is what made me fooled by it and interested.

I'm sure many performers can make this into a showpiece, and I LOVE to practice, but I'm not as excited by it as I was. I'm sure it would be great to see Dani's thinking and there is great value in that, but I'm passing.

Yes you have to manage deck and not 90% hands off. More like hands on.

Most respect to Dani. I don't know if he does the marketing.
