Not sure if it's me, but can't get the video to play on my apple products which seems pretty stupid if that's the case. The effect looks amazing but even handmade the price seems a bit ridiculous like a lot of other Theory 11 releases. At $15 or so less I'd probably impulse buy but half a Benjamin just seems a bit excessive. Is it worth it from anyone who has it?

50 dollars seems like a lot to me for what you can achieve with this gaff.

Joshua Jay has something like this on his Unreal DVD's. Your hand becomes their hand holding a matchbox. This seems like a better option as THEY hold the item. This is a snap judgment as I haven't even watched the video for TIC. So maybe I don't know what I am talking about.

I just prefer a GOOD index and thus no equivoque. But I am strange in that way.

Exactly! And I am with Jon on this- again we have false advertising. I guess if people are stupid enough to keep falling for it and not calling it out and boycotting it will keep happening. I would love to hear what the creator has to say about this false advertising?

Yes. They play that video in the T11 trailer.

I too am curious as to how this differs from Joshua Jays effect. Is the gimmick different? Seems pretty much the same. As far as using equivocate to obtain a predetermined card or set of cards, in the spectators mind doesn't it seem free anyways? Use an index if you want to do absolutely any card. I think for magicians an index if done right will always be stronger because they may pick up on the equivocate, but to a spectator who cares. I think people on here forget who their audience is.

The problem I see is that this is not repeatable, as opposed to an index, which is. For table hopping type situations I mean.

Oh gotcha. Yeah, that makes sense. If they can really pick any court card then that would open up a few more opportunities over Inferno.

With an index you do need to go to a pocket. With this or Inferno, your hand never leaves their view (or the matchbox never leaves their hand)

Too similar to Inferno, which to me looks superior because of the fact that the burnt card at the end. The burning presentation also seems to make more sense than dropping cards on the floor.

I have Inferno and it is terrific, but it does involve stealing something away. I believe the construction of the gimmicked card allows to show the various court cards in a single card without the move necessary with Inferno. You can see him set the card prior to opening it up in the Pit Bull New Year's Eve demo video.His display of the card at the end is a bit awkward and cannot be freely shown as the card in Inferno. There is a trade off. Knowing Blake's work, I am sure the card is very well made and quite intricate. It might be a type of la.y su..n built inside the card. Is it worth $50.00? It is sold out and time will tell. Will wait for some reviews though.

This looks interesting; I'll be watching for reviews. Does anyone know if the gimmick can cover more than four possible outcomes? That would be a clear advantage over Inferno if that is the case.

Personally, I'll probably stick to using Bryn Reynolds' SEVEN for this type of effect. Anyone that doesn't think pure equivoque could work for this sort of thing should really invest in a copy of the Safwan Papers.

I believe the spec had a complete free choice of court card, if I'm not mistaken.

A free choice of Queens, not of any court card, unless I'm mistaken.
No doubt Blake's gaff is clever, but as noted above, if you know how to do it well, you can achieve this without any gaff at all, and with just as great an impact. You could put the card in their hand, for instance, and let them keep it.
It's all in the reflexes.

The main reason I think it's of any court card is because Blake did something very similar on wizard wars with A free choice of the 12 signs of the zodiac. Which just so happens to be how many court cards there are.

It is any court card, not just the queens. Hope that clears things up. Smile
