New download by R. Paul Wilson.

Ad copy:

This trick has a STUNNING ending, gets multiple spectators involved, makes the magic happen IN THEIR HANDS and fools EVERYONE.

Thief of Hearts is a master class in card magic. Not because it uses "really hard moves" but because of how expertly and thoughtfully it's choreographed and designed.

Paul Wilson is a professional people-fooler -- as good as they get -- and it really shows in his routining. You'll also learn little touches that he adds that you can apply to all your card magic. Psychological, and physical.

Got it, love it. It's fun and different, and I'm going to be using it in a job tomorrow night, which says it all (to me, at least).

I'm not a big card guy, but I got this in exchange for my review, and I gotta admit, I REALLY like it. It's going to be great next year on Valentine's Day!

Unless the method is not what I am thinking, which is very unlikely, it seems pretty easy.

Paul Wilson has brilliantly streamlined this effect to put all the focus on the very magical moment. It truly is MAGICAL!

The teaching on this trick is fantastic. R. Paul Wilson makes it every clear how to do everything. It's also a very solid trick that laymen will have no chance of busting. Also, this is not the type of trick people are going to want to bust because you've made the magic all about their love. The angles on it are fantastic.

This is not a trick you're going to do at every table, bit this is a trick that when the right opportunity arises for you to perform it you're going to be super glad you own it.

While you can get into this from the deck you're working with that's not taught and intermediate magicians should not expect to be able to do it. Even getting into position in the middle of a set once you find out it's a couple's anniversary is difficult. R. Paul Wilson sort of assumes you'll walk up to the table in position to do this trick, although another option is taught that is fiddly and would require you to switch decks. On Valentine's day I'd totally do that. The rest of the year, I'm not so sure.

Wilson only teaches how to set up on the fly. While I appreciate that I'm not sure it's a the best idea. You still need to be somewhere private to do that. If I'm working in private I'd much rather use an exacto knife or pocket knife to get a cleaner heart.

Bottom line, if it's likely that you'll do walk-around on Valentine's day or if you consider yourself advanced enough to be able to load everything necessary you should buy this trick and you'll love it.

Got this yesterday & have just watched the explanation.

Excellent to do on Valentines Day,Weddings,Engagements & Aniversaries.

BUT THIS CAN BE DONE ALL YEAR ROUND as there are always couples together.

Love the streamlined handeling & massive sourvenir effect.

One thing I would do is instead of picking the heart cards under the box together, I would pick up the top card & use it as a scoop & slide it under the other card as there will not be a close up pad at the venues I work at.

Please note, what I have just said does not give the method away to anyone who has not bought this( but those who have this know what I mean

Always impressed with anything Paul Wilson releases.

His stuff is always a notch aboveexcellence.

Excellent routine. Card trick yes, but the plot is much different than any other card trick I've seen. So it plays like something unique even though it's still a card trick.

You might want to go back and watch his Extreme Possibilities DVD's from where this effect came from (volume 2). I forgot how great these DVD's were since they were released 11-years ago. There are many excellent "workers" within this series.

Temporary glue would be useful for preparing and storing several of the gaffs together by attaching the torn heart to the hole card with a tiny dab. Another idea might be to attach the torn heart to the back of the card box so that you begin a card set clean and then later ring it in.

The gaffed card with the hole stays inside the card box while you perform several other card effects. When finished you place the cards back inside the box and load it. Then, as an after-thought, you offer to show them one more effect and get right into it. The heart can be easily dislodged from the box during the action of setting the box down on the table.

Anyway, a really nice effect and an excellent set of DVD's.

'Thief of Hearts' may also be found in the 32-page booklet called "13"
'Punch Too' another of Paul Wilson's re-releases may be found in that reference booklet.

Trying hard to find a way to allow the "choosen" card to be freely manipulated before the final revelation; all I came up with is a t****e l**t, if somebody knows a routine that could enlight me a bit I'd be more than happy!
