I love STC and the gimmick . . . except for one thing. It's not simple for me to ditch the gimmick, which because of its stiffness is hard for me to palm off the deck. I'd love to hear how all of you handle this. You can just answer this post, or send me a PM if a reply here might expose something.
Thanks!

Why would you want to palm the gimmick off the deck? There's no need.

I have a very simple clean up idea for STC which gets the gimmick out of play. I will up load it to YouTube.

If you really wanted to and you have other touines you need to perform, you could simply strip out the jokers to the top of the deck and load the gimmick card and the two jokers in the card box.

I just cut it back into the deck after I hand them their card or put the cards back in the box. 👍

Thanks, Peter. I'd like to see what you have in mind. I really don't like the idea of leaving it in the deck, for many obvious reasons, if I go onto other card effects, which I am likely to do.

The stiffness of the gimmick plus its unusual appearance (you know what I mean) make it problematic for other card effects.

Good suggestion! I'll play with that.

Where should I look on YouTube, Peter? The AlakazamUkTv channel? Thanks.

Understood. I thought you were palming off the card just so you could hand the deck out for inspection.

Seeing the creator do it would be insightful for all of us, if you don't mind.
Thanks, Peter.

I take it you are not a fan of Remarkable?
Actually I'm not sure what you mean.
But if I were to combine the two I would probably do STC as a stand alone effect first, and then use Remarkable as a surprise kicker and show the pen now says their card.
Aww, I don't know, I'm just thinking out loud. I don't even own Remarkable.
Have to admit though that I have always liked the idea of having specs sign a forced card in effects where you can do this. It seems to pacify even the real suspicious types, and increase their amazement.


I get you. I was being rather heavy handed, and it is entirely subjective. We all have our pet hates; bar codes, Sharpie markers, specially printed playing cards? They are my pet hates. Just too obvious, in a very particular way.

I suppose I believe that the experience of wonder is quite a raw moment combined with a lasting sense of wonder.

If I did that kind of revelation, I would want to revert to normal, with no visible moves.

This is a fantastic product, great eye candy! I think whether you should ditch the gimmick depends on what effects you want to follow up with. Peter Nardi (thank you for this release, by the way!) shows you what to do on the accompanying DVD, so if you buy it, you will at least have an idea of how to accomplish the removal of the gimmick without your participants' (aka "spectators") awareness. Also, IMO, all the heat should either be on the marker or most likely, their selected card...not the deck.

Great. Lets just put everything on !@#$%^& youtube for all to see. Why do we need this? There's a demo for people to watch. Why you're encouraging half assed performances to be posted I don't know.
