Review: MR LIFTO by Ryan Schlutz and Big Blind Media

As the title of the effect suggests, you as the performer, are able to lift with your bare hand, a bunch of cards arranged in a rosette fashion. Ryan Schlutz has incorporated a card revelation in this in as well. In actual effect, here is what happens. A spectator freely selects a card. It is then lost in the deck. The performer takes from the deck a bunch of cards (about a dozen of them) and...[Read More]

Review: Cops and Robbers by Kris Rubens

“Cops And Robbers” is essentially Dr Daley’s last card trick. In the latter classical effect, 4 Aces are shown. Two red Aces are given to a spectator to hold, while the two black Aces are held by the performer. When both pair of Aces are turned over, the spectator is now seen holding two black Aces while the performer is holding the two red Aces. The two pairs of Aces have magically transposed...[Read More]

Review: The Gold Standard by David Regal

The Gold Standard is basically a card to impossible location. In David Regal’s presentation, it can be much more than this. In effect, a card is freely selected (and can be signed) and lost in the deck. Magically, the chosen (and signed) card appears between the performer’s tie tack and his tie. The card can be pulled on or spun to show that it is indeed impaled onto the tie tack. The tie tac...[Read More]

Review: Ash Paper by the Other Brothers

Ash Paper is essentially tapping into the mentalist’s mind to give a wonderful easy-to-use utility tool that combines a “WOW” fire burst effect and an unexpected unusual revelation of anything-you-like to reveal! In one of the effects, a random deck of cards is shown. A freely selected number say “15” is written down on a piece of black paper by a spectator. This paper already has a prediction ...[Read More]

Review: InvisiBill by Josh Janousky

Everybody loves the Omni Deck effect where a deck of cards becomes a clear block of solid plastic in a spectator’s hand. So did Joshua Janousky. This inspired him to come out with the Invisibill which is the bill equivalent to Omni Deck. This is a piece of currency bill that is made of transparent plastic sheet that has the outlines of the currency prints on it. The basic effect is called “In ...[Read More]

Review: The Casino Con by Steve Gore and Gregory Wilson

“The Casino Con” is an interesting effect that has at least 2 phases. It is a card trick as it involves playing cards, but not the full deck – it uses a packet of Jokers. It also has both a mental and a gambling theme. The actual effect goes like this: The performer says that he collects playing cards from casinos that have been demolished. He displays a packet of 10 cards each featuring a di...[Read More]

Review: VISION by Mickael Chatelain

Mickael Chatelain’s tricks use specially gimmicked cards that enable you to perform virtually “impossible” effects. The definition of “impossible” means there is practically no explanation at all how such an effect can happen so visually and so quickly. “Vision” is a little different from this. The effect is not so visual, but it is nevertheless incomprehensible to the audience. By visual, it ...[Read More]

Review: Appear-8 by Steve Rowe

Appear-8 is plucking a physical 3-dimentional black 8-ball out of a 2-dimensional printed picture of an 8-ball on the front of a playing card case. You receive the gimmicked card case – it is an empty case without the actual playing cards inside it. This comes inside a plastic protective box. The gimmick card case is very well-made and works wonderfully. You also receive a small 2 inch 8-ball ...[Read More]

Review: Whiplash by Josh Janousky

Whiplash is a gimmicked playing card. It looks like an ordinary playing card but it allows you to vanish and transform cards. It is an utility card gimmick. It can be casually shown on both sides without anyone suspecting that it is not a legitimate playing card. You receive the very well-made Whiplash card constructed with red back bicycle cards. You are also provided with a password to acce...[Read More]

Review: Mutate by Arnel Renegado

EFFECT: This torn and restored card is quite unique in the sense that it is one straight tear in the middle of the card that restores itself. Check out the trailer video – the core effect is pretty much presented as it is in the trailer. However, the clean up is not shown and I personally feel it is a little misleading in showing the way the card is handed out. I should say I went through a ph...[Read More]
