Nothing ground breaking in the methods, but I love his subtleties and the psychology of his relaxed presentation in the tutorial.

There is nothing new or groundbreaking as far as the shuffle and the mixing of the cards goes. But wait until you start performing this in the hands of the spectators! I'm telling you I don't know exactly 100% why but when you perform the circus in the hand part of this effect it really hits home and I have found the more you cause these images to appear in their heads prior to revealing who was in the center of the circus the better reactions you will get.

Good magic to all,

This looks fun, but for me, Socks by Huot is so much more fun, using the same principle.

I am also giving some thought to other ways these cards can be used. Maybe appropriate for a thread downstairs to be opened. These cards have a lot of potential and can't wait to receive them from Penguin.

Neil you will love the cards. And wait until you perform the circus in their hands part absolutely phenomenal! I don't know about other versions where you use the same kind of dealing shuffling kind of mix but I will tell you this the circus in their hand part of this effect has never failed to get me a great reaction yet!

Good magic to all,

I believe Paul Curry demonstrates how the 'swindle switch' does actually mix the cards first, before he uses it as a false mix.

Where might I find this explanation by Paul Curry? It's not in the trick download, is it?

I have an Egyptian Deck of cards and I do a spooky Routine using the Paul Curry method, so much can be done with the method and weaved into different story lines using different Cards.

Just received my “ moment” in the U.K. I was already in love with both effects, Andy’s performance, teaching and wonderful nuances, so to find that the cards are exquisite is no surprise. I’ve just re-read that and realise I sound like a fan boy but the truth is, I can’t wait to test this ( performance wise) at the weekend

Tips that I have learned using this is keep it at a nice steady Pace not too fast you don't want to rush it and not too slow you don't want to make it boring. Keep it moving along at the pace you would expect to see at a circus and I'm telling you the reactions will be beyond your hopes. Keep it light keep it fun.

Good magic to all,

I don't know if this makes a difference for you, but I've recently shipped three things to the UK.

The tracking arrival date said three weeks, but all three items arrived between 7-10 days.

From SoCal, I shipped a package to Oregon and a package to London on the same day and somehow the UK packaged got there first.

I'm guessing that customs has been relaxed a bit.

Edit: oops. Checked my records. One took 12 days, one took 10 days and one took seven days.

I have "The Moment" - enjoy performing it. Another wonderful effect using similar principles and a few additional creative ones (no sleights) is, "Make the Cards Match," from Mike Powers' "The Card Corner" column in the November, 2017 issue of The Linking Ring. The latter effect uses two piles of half cards which at the end match - based on many decisions the spectator makes regarding the order of the spectator's pile and the performer's pile.
