This honestly looks very good and a nice cute quick fun effect. I thought you may have to steal something to ditch, but looks like you don't - which in fairness is a true demo. Thanks catweazle for the clarification

yes you can, you just need to make enough gimmicks to hand out, have them signed if you want, you could do this with one person, nothing is left out of the demo to worry about, I am planning on using this, just knocking up some gimmicks now!


So there isn't a bit missing off the demo where the cards are taken back and then put on the specs fingers for a second time ?

Just watched the download. This is cool. You can even hand out the cards before and after you perform this. Same cards. No ditching. No slits. What a great effect. They can even keep the cards at the end but you will need to make up a new one. Very easy to make.

This is one of those classics where you buy it and watch the explanation, then right at the end you have it figured out.
That is what happened for me. That is my favorite kind of effect as well. 5/5 for explanation purposes.

Is it just me or has everyone else worked out the method from the exposure in this thread?

I don't think anything was given away. You might think you know. Betting you don't and might be fishing a little.

Can't wait to perform this and then switch the cards out for ones that have BIG GAPPING openings after the effect.
How many magicians does it take to change a lightbulb? Regardless, for magicians darkness is a time for d'lite.

Not fishing, I know how I would replicate the effect from the following things that have been posted:
"Cards with creases when they don't need to be"
Placing cards on fingers then taking them back before putting them on the fingers to perform.
Anyone with a knowledge of effects can recreate the trick from that and the demo.

Whether I am correct or not please neither confirm nor deny but I'd call that exposure.
But then this forum is full of that!

Everything you just said that was exposure was shown in the demo. So if it shows it in the demo how if somebody talks about it be exposure?

Exposure in that magicians can easily discern how a very simple trick is done from watching the demo and then a couple of them mention a few details that are clearly visible in the video? If that's what you're talking about then it would seem that posting that video in the first place exposes the trick.

Don't get me wrong, the intentional exposure of magic methods is a problem. And it starts with experienced magicians selling secrets to anyone willing to pay, including the general public, and using such video demos to market them! I personally don't think that the comments here in this thread you mentioned are a problem.

All just my opinion, of course.

Ive just watched the trailer again and your post is not accurate. The demo does not show all I have read and posted above.
It's a cute effect, not my style but a cute effect. If you can't see how the posts are exposure then you clearly have a higher threshold than me.
This was a reply to Mr Effecto.

Hello professor who, I made my comment (which you quoted above) based on what I saw in the demo. Therefore it is not exposure.

Plus, this part of the forum is open to speculation. That's precisely all I was doing Smile

You obviously do not own this. Or you would not of made such a uneducated comment.
The cards you start with are the cards you finish with and there are no gaps slits tears nothing of the kind.

Personally I wouldn't give them the cards to keep. Too much of a risk that they'd fiddle around and discover the secret IMO.

Your comment alone I agree is not exposure because of the video, it is subsequent comments that have gone to far in my opinion. too much confirmation from others as to speculation can be a bad thing.

I am a novice when it comes to magic (I have only ever performed for family members - when I was a lot younger and had more time).

Was gonna purchase this (its only $5.95 from Penguin so relatively cheap) however, after watching the trailer just 2 times , its quite easy to work out how it is achieved. I am pretty sure I am 99% correct in my thinking and the fact that there are creases running down the center of the cards (which can be seen just before they are pulled from the fingers), confirms my suspicions.

I will say that the cards shouldn't actually be left with the spectators after the effect - if one of them folds the card along the crease, they will also realize how it is accomplished.

The thing is...yes there is a fold in the card...go for it, try it...it wont work....i can place the cards on the specs fingers, and leave them there....bet those that think they have it worked out...can't.

Huh ... Seems that I'm extraordinary stubborn on Incredihole ... Even after reading these posts , knowing there's a crease , and checking out the 50 seconds mark , and watching it multiple times , I still don't have a clue on how it works ( think it's just me ... ) . I'll just have to get it , I agree on PRINCE on this one , real world performances , the audience are only exposed to a single time of performance .
