You guys may want to check out Amazink.
Sebastien is a super talented magician that creates great concepts and methods.
I think that the productions look as just as great as the reveals.
Let me know what you think Smile

How is this different from Badge and Frame?

How many times is this guy going to release a variation of the same trick? It would be so nice to see something original coming out.

This would be good if the gimmick could look like the back of an ID badge. That way, you can wear your ID and turn it over to perform the trick with its back. The fact that it's a card makes no sense at all. Especially when you make the name of a playing card appear on it instead of showing that the card in the badge is the card...

At least can you take the card out for examination or something?

Hey do you want to see my full review with even more of my opinions and ideas? Visit this link for my video review:

Title: Amazink
Creator: Sebastien Calbry
MSRP: $ 35
Skill Level: all
Video run time: 26 minutes

Type of effect: Flash reveal

Manufacturer's Write Up: The Gimmick for multiple effects!!!
Be creative!

With Amazink, you will have the possibility to make any writing appear and disappear on the back of a card, inserted into a badge holder, simply by waving it!
You will also be able to make revelations and changes (characters, shapes, etc.) based on your own inspiration, as the gimmick is fully customizable.
Finally, you will have the option to create a small token from your badge holder (coin, folded card, etc.) as seen in the video.

Sebastien Calbry creates an actual creative tool with this gimmick, and offers multiple possibilities.

It is possible, using a badge holder, to turn it into an extra support by drawing on it to then combine original effects.


What's in the box? Badge holder with its lanyard, Trick card, Gimmicks, Business card with link to instructional video

How are the production values: Shot well against a white back drop, no microphone so it is a little echo-y.

Is it well made: It is well made, this is a sturdy prop

Is it well taught: The video is shot in French with English subtitles. The subtitles for me were hard to read, the text dances around the screen from top to bottom and also changes color from black to white to red.

Storage? Does it "pack flat?" It is what it looks like, no extras

Does it "play big?" this is a nice reveal that can get a good reaction when paired with the right effect

Difficulty / Skill level required: All skill levels

How much arts and crafts are involved? You will need to “draw” or “write” your own predictions

How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) Very real world possible

Overall score: let's toss out the traditional score of 1-10 and make this something that we all can appreciate and understand.

_____ Very Satisfied
_____ Somewhat Satisfied
__X___ Neither Satisfied or Dissatisfied
_____ Somewhat Dissatisfied
_____ Very Dissatisfied
_____ No Opinion

My thoughts Ultimately this feels like his last two effects Offset and Badge came together and had a baby, even at the beginning of the video he admits that this is technically “offset 2” – also I don’t see that wearing a lanyard like that looks “normal” it almost screams “gimmick” unless you were wearing it at a convention where EVERYONE was wearing a lanyard.

If I want to use this in a trade show, is the card removable or replaceable. For example if I want to use the trade show entrance pass or business card. Thanks Dave
