Product Description

Windows Media Video File View Clip

Every magician gets asked if they use their magic to cheat at cards. Imagine the spectators surprise when you prove that you can actually use hypnosis to create a winning hand.

You start by asking the spectator to stare at four hypnotic designs that produce a very strange visual effect in your hands. Is this an optical illusion or are they under your power?

They will have even more doubts when you snap your fingers and the hypnotic cards visually change into four aces which you can show on both sides.

Your spectators will be stunned but you will never get an invitation to their poker nights!

Comes complete with instructional DVD and gimmicked cards on Bicycle stock.

Running Time Approximately 27min

Do you do Kentonism or any other suggestion or trance based magic? If so “Hypno-Aces” by David Penn might be a good addition for you. In fact, if you are a packet trick junkie you may like this too.

David Penn’s mediocre performance doesn’t do justice for the effect. Basically four Bicycle cards with a hypnotic design on the front are shown. As they are displayed one is placed in each hand of the spectator. A snap of the fingers breaks the trance or hypnotic state and all four cards are cleanly shown to be the four aces.

If you like quick visual magic in packet trick form it is definitely worth looking into. As I said earlier if you do pseudo trance or hypnotic states, you may have fun with this one. It may be too much on the magic side for some, but I think fans of Kentonism will like it.

The effect is very easy to do and very visual. The DVD gives good enough explanations with somewhat uninspiring performances.

This is the review I wrote for the Linking Ring magazine.

"Hypno Aces" is a visual, simple packet trick that is likely to stun audiences. The audience sees both sides of four poker cards with Bicycle backs and unusual "hypnotic" spirals printed on the faces. After talking about how card cheats use hypnosis, the spiral faces change into four Aces, which are shown on both sides.

I knew this trick was a winner before I ever performed it. How? Because the same plot, with more logical cards and a far superior method, was released many years ago. You probably have it in your pocket right now. It's called "NFW."

I really don't know from where David Penn gets the nerve to release a slightly altered and inferior version of a hit trick and expects no one to notice!

This is really unfortunate, because the trick is a good one, and the gaffs are well-made. The reset is simple. The DVD is fine and teaches the necessary sleights, which are well within the reach of beginning card magi.... [Read More]

The premise of this effect is good. The patter is about how you can use hypnosis to gamble. You show what appears to be four cards with a hypnosis spiral printed on the face. Then two of the hypnosis cards are placed in the participants hands and two are shown in your own hands. All four cards turn into four aces.

The entire routine uses only two sleights, a double lift and a flustration count.

The instruction is very good.

The quality of the props is good. You get two gimmicked cards. You will need to add three more ungimmicked cards.

The entire video is around 20 minutes long.

The product is true to the ad. The ad states is comes with gimmicked cards. It doesn’t say it comes with all the cards you will need.


The big issue with the routine, in my opinion is the method. The routine uses a couple of flustration counts, one right after the other. I think this method is weak when the flustration count is required back to back. The... [Read More]
