Product Description

From Emerson & West. Seven ancient playing cards are shown to be six black spot cards and one King of Diamonds. The proprietor of a game of chance at an old traveling country fair divides the seven cards into two groups and asks the spectators to wager as to which group contains the Diamond. An elderly Gypsy woman, having wagered and lost, placed a curse upon the man and his game. When next he attempts to operate his game it is found that all the cards are winners. The cards are fanned to show all the faces are Diamond Kings and all the backs are normal.

The cards I once got from Tannen's Magic were the same design as now-but of pasteboard that could naturally age. Looking at the routine now, it's a very deceptive variation of Wildcard, with a story line that justifies what happens. The moves in this routine, have great value in other card effects-mainly, the Hamman count. More, the final revelation, allows you to show the cards fanned, back and front...not as easy to do with Wildcard.
Now, the odd thing was that I ordered this online-and the exterior packaging shows what you see here on MLA: Hampton Ridge as manufacturer. The... [Read More]
