REVIEW

This is an awesome routine with a great, simple gimmick and great handling instruction. He teaches several variations of methods and handlings using a table or stand-up without a table. He also teaches a really good alternative to the mercury card fold if you don’t want to do it. I rather like his alternative because I think it can be incorporated into a handling that adds texture to the routine.

He also teaches a very nice gag with the sharpie.

The reset is simple and easy.

CAUTION

The effect comes with a gimmick that you incorporate into a matchbox. You will need a matchbox that is the right size to fit a card folded in quarters. If you don’t have the exact size matchbox, I think you won’t have trouble figuring out how to make what you have work, using the principle described.

VERDICT

This is a great gimmick, great routine, and great instruction.

Suggestions from the Reviewer

He teaches an alternative to the MCF. This method gives you the opportunity to use different patter and handling. If you do a few card revelations as in an ambitious card routine, take the deck behind the back and offer to find their card behind your back as you are doing the move. Place the MCF card under the deck and turn around, giving your audience a view of what your are doing behind your back. Pull a card from the middle of the deck and turn around with this card. See the DVD for how this sequence fits into the routine he demonstrates.
