It is clean. There's only one "thing" you have to do. But it's nothing, really. Not even a move (it's a totally self working trick, after all). It's also logical and above suspicion. Especially since the spectators never see the ending coming.

I have been obsessed with this plot for years. But every solution I came up with had gaffs and awkward handlings and double stick tape and just all sorts of nastiness. I am very happy with this solution. Played great at the Magic Castle. Even most magicians get caught by it.

I have the Fifth Card. Brian Caswell and have had good reactions with it. Seems the added surprise of things written on the backs of selected cards adds greatly to the impact for specs.

Awesome effect man.

I saw Cameron do this on a group of magicians. After he was done they were all like well how long does it take to reset and he literally did it in 3 seconds and was like "Done". Money jumped from their wallets. Smile

I like it because of the subtleties and convincers. Ending with the red back would be good enough but of course, at this moment, the trick is not over yet, Cameron Francis' style!

Smart, easy to do and practical... Again!

Will be released tomorrow along with a bonus, impromptu effect called "Counter. Intuitive." The bonus effect will only be available for the first week. After that, it will be taken off the site.

"Fixed Fate" will be available as a physical product that comes with the deck and/or a download. The deck is very easy to make if you want to do it yourself. You just have to be willing to sacrifice a couple of decks...

So the only limitation is mananging a spec choice between 5-20?

Yes. But, as I mention in the download, the restricted number choice work to your advantage.

The reason being that at that point, all they are doing is naming a number and you deal down to it. If the number is too high, it's going to get very boring very quickly. Because there's no suspense. There's no card yet. Nothing to anticipate. So the dealing procedure has to be quick.

The number restriction has no impact on the effect. It's still amazing to the spectstor.

One other thing, I realize the written prediction might not be everyone's style. But you don't have to perform it that way. In fact, the first handling on the video is the non-written prediction version. However, the written prediction provides some beautiful built in time misdirection for you after the... well, I don't want to call it a "move" because it's not a move. There are no moves in this trick. It's completely self working and everything is done openly. Let's just say, the time misdirections scrambles people's perception of what exactly happened previously.

Not that you need it... the trick works fine without it. But it's just another layer of deception at your disposal.
