Greetings, magi! The new digital release of my effect A Game of Life & Death, long out of print, is now available on my website. I published this effect as a dealer item many years ago, and after it went out of print, I regularly received emails from magicians asking if it was still available. In fact, I've recently received a bunch of messages from folks on this site, and I've been telling them they won't have to wait much longer, because it's nearly ready. Well, now it's available, for the first time in digital form: complete script, instructions, and printable props so you can give away a cool souvenir whenever you perform it! You can watch a full demo here: http://www.davidparr.com/store

Glad to finally be able to tell folks that it's back!

Thanks, afinemesh! It is fun to perform, as it has a lot of room for interpretation and change of tone.

This is a fabled effect. I have hoped to get a hold of it for some time. Many thanks, David... I have it now. Let the games begin.

Nice routine.... I can see this being done with tarot cards or other types of cards. Maybe the vintage 1800 style deck.

I would like the routine better by having the death card selected..... That is what Incubus would do in his chamber (from the book, The book of haunted Magic) Smile

Yes, I like this routine. Another sale is coming your way....

Thanks, you guys! Good to know folks are gonna enjoy using this!

Something I've been thinking about: You know how online magic demos often deliberately avoid showing the effect? I was determined to take the opposite approach, to actually show a performance — twice, under different conditions.

That was indeed a good idea. Especially mixing two different performances into the final video montage.

Thanks, guys. It was a decision made because of the number of times I've watched demo videos and said out loud to the screen: "Just let me see the effect!"

Ha, its video photo shopped, cgi,trap doors, & hidden stooges....lol
Yes I also appreciate the uncut, start to finish performance you did & shared. It does get aggrivating on the cut aways & say the same as you do - I just want to see the whole effect !

After Fridays big releases, need to replenish my funds but will be getting this, love the premise & routine, innocent looking but nicely devious !

Hands down, this is my favorite bizarre card effect of all time, and has been since David first released it back in the early 2000's.

Frankly, I would have liked for it to remain underground - which is about the highest compliment I can give it.

Congrats on your re-release David.
Magic which awakens and nourishes the divine spirit in man encourages the growth of true humanity, in contrast to the materialistic outlook which binds man to the earth.

Just purchased. This is so fun and definitely my style and something I will do. Thanks for sharing this with the community David.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

It's a great effect,
I've used it for a number of years and always loved the structure, scripting and premise
hopefully all present it with the respect it deserves Smile

I am fixing/making my own cards for this routine. Nothing like a cool deck to add a little wow. Now I will be able to use a tarot or the series 1800 deck for this....

Yes, David, I picked it up last night and read it as I was camping in a hammock. Great reading to go to sleep by and take into my dreams...
