I really like this!

This is definitely a deviation from your typical packet trick, though the theme of 'lie-detecting cards/deck' has been around for a long time.

What you get are five high-quality cards printed by the USPCC which are all normal except for their backs, which I will talk more about in a moment and they are completely ungimmicked.

The backs are printed with a lie detector graphic which ties into the effect and the faces are normal USPCC faces.

The DVD is shot in a hotel room with Cameron Francis teaching everything you need to know to perform this effect. His crediting is minimal but it does not need much. The DVD is very good quality with crisp audio and video. Everything is clearly explained and a couple of alternative ideas are given where applicable. The menu is easy to navigate and the ad copy is 100% accurate.

There is a short interview at the end where Cameron answers some questions asked by a disembodied voice from behind the camera. There is also an extra section of trailers for other products from Cameron Francis which had nothing to do with this effect, but I had fun watching some of them.

If you like what you read in the ad copy or see in the trailer, get this and you will not be disappointed! This can be used in so many ways with multiple participants for a very strong effect.

Highly recommended!

Manufacturer's Description:

A killer, self working packet trick that comes with 5 specially printed USPCC gaff cards.

"Incredibly awesome effect that I highly recommend you purchase." 4.5/5, -Jeff Stone, Magic

A card is selected by a spectator and hidden away. The magician (that's you) then reaches into their pocket and retrieves a state of the art Lie Detector machine. (Ok, it's actually a small packet of beautifully printed cards that you carry round in your wallet or purse).

A series of questions are asked of the spectator. "Is your card red or black? Is it a spot card or a court card?" - That kind of thing. The spectator can choose to honourably tell the truth or fib like an incorrigible scoundrel.

Each answer is 'input' into the lie detector (by placing one card from the top of the packet to the bottom for each letter of the random response), and the new top card is flipped face up. Incredibly this reveals either the word TRUTH or LIE (depending on whether the spectator was honest or not)!

Through this process the magician is able to correctly determine the value of the card picked by the spectator.

But that isn't the end of the trick. No siree bob! In a mind blowing display of magic awesomeness you now flip the lie detector packet over and show that ALL of the cards are in fact duplicates of the spectators chosen card!!

Funny, commercial, engaging and insane FUN, Nothing But The Truth is the perfect packet trick. It slips into your pocket, but plays HUGE! It is self working (with some more advanced handling options offered on the DVD) and leaves a lasting impression on audiences of all sizes!
