Does it have to spell the card or can you spell their name or any other word to get to the selected card?

Devin I still can't believe it's you.

Can you something to prove you're Devin?

Trust me, it's Devin.
Jack Straw from Wichita, cut his buddy down
And dug for him a shallow grave, and laid his body down
Half a mile from Tucson, by the morning light
One man gone and another to go, my old buddy you're moving much too slow
We can share the women, we can share the wine

Exactly!

Maybe Devin could take a quick pic with the words "I Love the Magic Café" on a sign or something and put it up for an avatar.

That's the second time that you've asked me this question in the last week.

OK, you got me.

I'm Devin.

But if I was not Devin I would be considering buying this effect.

I'm pretty sure that everyone here knows that I am not Devin.

But I am Jack Straw from Wichita, and I cut my buddy down
And dug for him a shallow grave, and laid his body down
Half a mile from Tucson, by the morning light
One man gone and another to go
My old buddy you're moving much too slow.

Here is the OFFICIAL BLOG for the Auto Spell Deck. A video will be up within the next few days.

Effect: The performer shows a deck of cards to be well mixed while removing the two Jokers from the deck. He hands the deck to a participant to cut as many times as he likes. The performer tells the participant to stop cutting anytime he likes and that the top card of the deck will be his selected card. The performer asks the participant to look at the top card of the deck while the performer looks away. The participant is then instructed to take his selected card, push it into the center of the deck anywhere he likes, and square the deck. Once he has done so, he tells the performer who turns around and takes the deck saying he will give it one cut. The performer cuts the deck once and places it on the table face down. The selection of the card is a free choice and there is no force used.

The performer tells the participant that he will not touch the deck again. He reminds the participant that he selected a card and returned it to the deck without the performer ever touching the deck. The performer says that he has cut the selected card to a special position that will allow the participant to spell right to his card.

“For example, if you selected the Ace of Spades, then you will spell A-C-E O-F S-P-A-D-E-S turning one card face up from the top of the deck and dealing it onto the table into a face up pile. When you have finished spelling, you will have spelt right to your card.”

While the deck is still on the table, the participant spells out the full name of his card by removing the top card of the deck, turning it face up and placing it into a face up pile. While doing so, the participant sees that every card is different. After he has finished spelling the name of the card, he will be stunned to see his card is indeed on top of the deck. He has indeed spelled to his card!

This is about as close to a hands off miracle as you could ask for. The participant selects and returns a card with the deck in his hands. The performer looks away when the card is returned so he does not know where it was placed in the deck.

The performer takes the deck, gives it one cut, and returns the deck to the table. He does not look at the faces of the cards, and he truly does not know the name of the selected card until the participant names it. The only time the performer touches the deck after a card is selected is to give it one cut. The participant deals the cards face up, not the performer. The full name of the card is spelled out each time. The word “of” is always spelled and the suit always has an “s” at the end.

There is nothing to memorize and the effect is self-working. The deck can be reset in just a few seconds and the effect can be repeated, if strolling, at another table with a different card being selected.

No Sleights, No Skill, No Marked Cards, No Long & Short or Rough & Smooth. Best of all you can do this with nothing to memorize. NO MULTIPLE OUTS. The ending is the same each time. The card is spelled the same way each time.This ingenious deck is entirely 100% self-working.

Once you learn the principle you can apply it to other languages and it would work. I assume you are talking about spelling the numbers and suits in another language. The deck supplied is geared to the English spelling of the cards, but once you see how the deck works, you can easily make up one that would work in another language using the principle.

It "would" work, so you are not very sure... right ? Smile

You say that it's possible to easily make one other deck, but will it work for ALL the cards ?

I have not tried it in another language, so I can't say for sure, but in theory, it appears it would work. Anyhow I am not advertising that it works in any language. As I said before, the deck was designed for the English spelling of the words.

I just received mine today, but I have a show tonight and tomorrow night, and a morning appointment with a client on Friday. Somewhere inbetween I will put my comments here
May every day be magic!
