Gotta laugh at all these people demanding "full performance demonstrations" before parting with their cash. We oldies remember the printed catalogues, The number of times I was burned as a youth by a description that made it sound like I was buying REAL MAGIC!

One question about this: how practical is this to put either before or after other tricks, without a deck switch?

I watched this last night and my gosh talk about OVERKILL! While the trick itself is pretty good I was practically screaming at my computer monitor for having to watch 1 hour and 7 minutes of Chris's explanation. This was already mentioned before but honestly 15-minutes would have been a generous amount of time for the performance, credits, and explanation. If nothing else, why couldn't they have divided this into two segments: (1) quick explanation, and (2) detailed explanation? Honestly, this was borderline torture.

I felt the same way. I must have said 'OK we get it!!!' out loud 20 times. Pretty decent trick regardless.

I guess you're right, Ross, I AM getting old. I remember the old 'Abbott's' catalog. Easily an inch (2.54cm for my European friends) thick. The overwhelming majority of the effects were pretty bad (sorry, Percy), but God did I love when that catalog arrived at my doorstep.

I finally got around to checking this out and I have to say that I do like this. Nothing knuckle busting that allows you to concentrate on your performance. I do apologize to Chris for giving him a hard time. Though, I do think a full demo could have been released without most not being able to backtrack and figure this out. I do think this is practical and the deck can be used for other effects.

Overall a very nice release Chris!

no deck switch needed. 30 second set-up.

Good trick, especially for 10 bucks. I do wish there would be a less suspicious way of burning the cards. (Any ideas?) I do love the "card you could have picked" reveal though. I did the trick on some friends... it was not a "hard" audience, but they really enjoyed it. (I am a hobbyist.)
