PROS

This is a very nice packet trick. It is different in that the cards have a movie theme and people are drawn to movies.

The effect is very easy to do, but you will need to learn the Elmsley count.

The instruction is good, it is completely angle proof, and the reset is automatic. They take little pocket space.

CONS

Since the cards are so unique, when they wear out, you would have to purchase the effect again to replace them, or purchase refills if they are available.

The card quality is just OK. They clearly don't have the same card quality as USPCC cards.

A little pet peeve of mine is when an effect involving a packet of tricks doesn’t come with a packet trick holder. The cost is probably a dollar. They could just raise the price by one dollar and you are really “good to go” with your packet trick... you don't get a packet trick holder.

VERDICT

I really like this packet trick because it doesn’t play like a card trick and the movie theme draws people’s attention. I downgraded it to four stars because once your cards wear out, you must purchase a new set and it didn't come with a packet trick holder.

Manufacturer's Description:

Six cards. Two free spectator choices. One mental miracle! The name may be COUNTERFEIT but the reactions are REAL!

Counterfeit is a handling of a packet trick from the devious mind of Stephen Tucker (used with kind permission), with an adapted presentation by Daniel Meadows.

Imagine this:
6 cards are displayed bearing the pictures of some dubious sounding DVD titles
The spectator chooses a DVD for themselves
The spectator then chooses a DVD for you
Despite the spectator making both choices, you can show that they were successful in selecting the 2 cards that are different!
Was it your influence or their intuition? You decide!

Points to remember:
Easy to do!
Resets instantly!
Works every time!
No memory work!
No angle issues!
No tricky language!
Can be performed without a table!

On the accompanying DVD, Daniel Meadows runs you through everything you need to know to be able to add this to your repertoire. Minimal pocket space required; maximum spectator reaction!
