Apologies if I missed something, but why was that a blonde moment? So you can't put a card in someone's hand and use an equivoque to get them to that card? That's exactly what I do to close, then just leave them with the card which also is the only one that has my details opaquely printed over the face it. It can also be done with any card.

**EDIT** Sorry pegasus, just saw the other post explaining it's any court card, not just the Queens.

Only because I know that Theory11 would not charge someone 50 bucks for a gimmick that my 7 yr old daughter could knock up in 5 minutes.

It's a very interesting solution to a classic card plot.

I don't think it's false advertising.
The spectator will genuinely feel they have had a free choice of any card.

If you're familiar with Mark Elsdon's On the Mark, you will appreciate the clean selection procedure.

I think they've ceased selling it now.

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)


On the other hand with an index there is NO equivoque... Oh well... I use indexes so what the hell do I know...?

But two equivoque and two completely free choices makes for a very deceptive effect. Index is fine, but it's a (slightly) different effect than this or inferno. Both good. Both have cons.

This was done with a cut card as I was the only one there. But it could just as easily have been a any named card. NO equivoque or limitation of cards. But as I said. I use indexes. Your mileage may vary.

One equivoque AFAIK. There's a trade off between equivoque and having the card(s) in your hand to, alternatively, having your hand in your pockets.

I used to favour methods where ANY card could be named...
for example Bang On by Marc Oberon was, for a while, a go to of mine but I soon found it cumbersome to carry on me when wanting to perform other effects on top.

Now I had a deck of cards on top of bang on wallets to bog me down so even with bang on I started to introduce one bit of equivoque, just to bring back valuable pocket space.

The same applies to an index.
Now I'm having to effectively carry 2 decks....one just to bring out ANY named card...

Why?....

Good equivoque, done right, is just as good to a spectator as 'free choice', especially when you only need to do it once!
Simply equivoque between 'numbers' and 'pictures' first, and you've instantly eliminated the need for 40 cards to be on your person.

The rest from then onward is free choice and just as fair as 'naming any card'.
They can freely choose Colour...
They can freely choose Suit...
They can freely choose Court card Value...
But now all I need is one deck for tricks, and one wallet with 12 picture cards secretly dispersed.

Same Job done but with economy of items.

You really don't NEED all 52.
It's once again a magician's concern,not a spectator's.

If Blake's truly come up with a way to have all 12 possible cards in your hand from the beginning, and to show the correct one at will, that is definately significant...no need for opening a wallet or pocket fumbling...the 'practically merely named' card was in your closed fist from the beginning...

I believe that is stronger to a spectator...

12 cards?

A blonde moment? Not at all. Watch Colin McLeod use equivoque to have a card selected. No gimmicks. He does it brilliantly for his version of the ACAAN plot. I've used Colin's technique, and it kills. Could just anyone pull it off? No. It's more than just method. It's confidence and naturalness and everything that must come together to make the process invisible.

Tia's not to say there isn't value in Blake's creation. Certainly, there is. But one does not need a gimmick to achieve this effect. One does, however, need experience and ability.
It's all in the reflexes.

Indeed, however, I was alluding to the fact that you thought this gimmick only constituted 4 choices instead of the 12.
