Does this come in different cards, or will there be additional cards available for strolling situations, etc...? Mine came in the Queen of Hearts, a good card to have, but I would like to get an additional card or two, of different values, if possible?

It comes with one gimmick.

However you can order additional and different ones at http://www.joaomiranda.com/store/index.p......ct_id=85

Joao seems like a guy with integrity and I am sure he or the vendor will take care of you. Mine is in the mail. I do hope it's not fragile as it will wind up on the drawer whether they replace the broken part or not

It's very well made and should last a while with care. With that said this material does break from time time but it's very easy to repair if it does.

I will replace any gimmick because as I said they are extremelly well made.

More than 1200 units have been sold now and this is the only complaint I have received.

I have never had any audience Demand anything, and if they did, I would simply say, "No", these are my props and they are very expensive.

Your statement shows your lack of knowledge in performing magic, and experience in front of an audience.


I think that if you can definitely not look at my expensive "normal pad" I also think that if you were to say "no, these are my props and they are very expensive" - you would draw unnecessary heat to them so probably not a good script to go with. Just my thoughts.

____________EDIT___________________

Sorry I should "apologise" you didn't say that you would say the second part - just the short answer "No"... oh my isn't punctuation useful - sorry I overlooked it. Smile but still adding the expensive part not a good idea with a normal looking pad. Smile

I hate defending myself on these boards but I felt a little attacked by Bill.
To clarify, I perform many effects with unexaminable items. I would never say what Bill recommended as it does not fit my style but have no problem with audience management.
What I meant was due the nature of this prop I would not for example pull it out at dinner for my wife or a friend who would immediately say give me the pad.
I think you know what a I mean

I think saying no to someone asking to look at the pad would be fishy - regardless of how much anyone performs. I think you would need to do some audience management like Josh Jay uses in Blind Sight. Which is an awesome bit of bluffary / misdirection / having the out and out balls to "shut them down" without being fishy.

I have performed the trick professionally countless times.

Not one single spectator asked me to examine the pad (or card).

The key word there being "professionally".
When performing as a paid professional you are far less likely to be asked those types of things than when you are performing for your brother in law.
I think it's safe to say that the majority of magic consumers are not paid professionals, so comparing experiences to someone who is might be a case of apples and oranges.

Having said that, I don't think that examination is an issue nearly as often as we think it's going to be.
The problem is that we can never really be sure when it may happen, but the good news is that simply saying "sure, later" and moving on is not the end of the world either.

How can they examine when you're stood ten feet away? A prerequisite in order not to show the workings.

This effect is as good as it gets for me. It has the comedy of drawing the back of the card for the reveal and then is beyond shocking for the kicker. Someone thought long, hard and deep to make this simple, foolproof, and wildly visual. Instantly into my close up kit after doing it just 4 times for 4 groups and getting 5 star reactions each time form kids to octogenarians. SUGGESTION: Make this up in business card size and do it with a small pad all kept in your wallet. If Miranda made these for sale I'd buy a few instead of making my own. At the end - wallet switch under the wallet for the real business card and give THAT to the spectator. BUY THIS AND SUPPORT THESE GUYS! I just bought two more for spares. Fantastic!

This looks really good !! I was actually working on something similar but with a £5 note instead of a card...and my gimmick that I made didn't have any breakable or snappable parts... Here's a little video of it

https://youtu.be/jSToBSDjQwk


However, I'm still perplexed at how this works!! Looks amazing!!

I like your idea (video) and it has a different but similar use to Sketch. I can't tell your method from the video but it looks like the back of the bill has the top page repeated on it. Yours has a bill appear from nowhere which is cool and useful. You should get Sketch and see hat their execution is. Then apply parts of it to your bill trick. Vanish a bill, open your wallet. Have it pop into view. New trick!

After watching sketch trailer again, I think it is vaguely similar method but very different...and no, the bill doesn't have anything printed on it, it can be fully examined straight away without Amy switches! I was thinking of combining it with a svenpad routine where the piece of card is a prediction and thenhe prediction jumps.out the page!
