Ok thanks for the info lol.
But anyway, that would be false advertising to leave that in the trailer... (If not impromptu of course )

Anymore, it seems like the definition of impromptu in the magic world means impromptu less and less.

Some definitions would seem to indicate that A Kub Zag is impromptu as long as you have a Kub Zag and an assistant available.

It isn't a gimmicked card, it is printable PDFs for the reveal at the end

Hey all,
As Christopher Williams said its not a gimmicked card.
Also since almost always I perform it with a borrowed deck I consider this to be an impromptu miracle.
I have a specific routine that leads me to the preparation I need.

Best regards,

Hey Maybe you should read what's posted on the site you are representing

I Quote

"You receive two custom printed reveal cards"

If that was not the case it could be sold as a simple download without DVD and custom printed cards

The custom printed card is a double facer with a joker on one side and the predicted card on the other. This is not a gaff and you don't need it for the trick per se. Watch the Alakazam Vlog on 2nd June for more info.

Man peeps sure are quick to snipe at each other here Smile

The idea of the custom printed card is that it isn't obvious that there is a prediction which makes the ending more impactful.

Whilst it may have similarities to other tricks a couple of the products mentioned have now been discontinued or are unavailable so I can't see an issue with Peter's release.

The title sounds much more interesting than another boring counting card trick, which could have been easily included in some previous self working video collection.

If one takes the time to look through the links above, one would find that variations on the stop trick are plentiful. There are over 60 versions on the Behr site alone. I found Ammar's version of the perfect stop trick on the web and honestly, the patter left me wanting and the trick seemed boring. At least Mr. Nardi's version has an interesting and engaging story line for a counting trick.

First of all there is nothing wrong with Gimmick Cards

But to say a double faced card is not a Gimmick Card is stretching the Truth a little !

Last time I looked in a regular Card Deck I never noticed any Double Faced Cards

Why we would have to argue about something that nobody, or few, has seen?

If it is not impromptu soon it will be discovered and underlined by the purchasers... but at the moment it is just only a sterile discussion...

The cards are not a gimmick necessary for the effect that it is based on a principle and anyway I prefer to have such cards realised in a professional way and use them on the go than downloading the product and then being not satisfied by having to print them... also because the DVD, as you someone as rightly noted, is a single DVD effect so it is good that it has inside the cards and everything else...

Wish you all some fun while waiting for mine DVD ;-)

The part I don't quite like is that you're displaying a double faced card to a spectator that shouldn't know that double faced cards are a thing. And it's only being used as a reveal. (Or as someone suggested, it might be being used as a cover for the face of the deck as well.)

Funny why Mr Nardi hasn't chimed in he's usually very helpful when he has a new release

Jus write the prediction on the back of the joker simple

Looks a lot like The Butterfly Effect by David Forrest

In my more than 25 years of doing magic, I have re-discovered that the most magical audiences are children. They make the best audiences because they don't hide their surprise, or joy, or happiness: all of which, my Magic show will bring to life.

Amen! Doesn't anyone else hate to show double facers to laymen?

Depends on the context. Anniversary Waltz is one powerful trick

I don't see the problem. I hand out gimmick cards all the time as souvenirs.

This looks good. I usually have someone just name a card and show it reversed (ID) or have them just name a card and predict that it will be called Phil, but I've been looking for something with a lot more meaningless procedure and I think this will fit the bill. Actually I'm tossing up between this and Bannon's Collusion. Both great, procedure heavy, convoluted and mildly boring ways at predicting a playing card. Smile Smile Smile
