Product Description

A new approach to the T&R plot

A corner is cleanly and fairly torn from a selected card. (It really is!) The magician claims that he can restore this card to its former glory with the aid of a very special and ancient and magic-endowed instrument of necromancy. The spectators clutch their handbags to their faces and peek through the gaps in their fingers. The magician goes to his pocket and produces....a stapler! He talks half the audience out of leaving before re-attaching the torn corner with the stapler. The "restored" card is signed by the spectator as proof that this miracles was witnessed by human eyes. A man in the back row cocks the hammer on a large handgun, a woman in the front is picturing the magi with an axe in his liver....before things turn violent he gathers everyone around close and with a gentle rub (ooh!) he visually heals the torn corner and hands out the card ford inspection, there is nothing to find, just the two staples which once held the card together!

Ripped and Repaired, the title trick, was first offered as a bonus item with David's Card through Window offering, reviewed as well. It is not included in the latest edition, so you have to get it here.

The effect is odd. Intentionally so. The corner of a card is torn and then stapled back into place. The magician rubs the location of the join, which then "repairs" itself. The card is still stapled.

Ok, I'm convinced David has come up with a workable solution for this effect, but I am reminded of the story of the Zen Archer. Most archers take a quiver full of arrows and spend all day shooting things. The Zen archer takes one arrow and spends the day trying to find something worth shooting.

Is the Ripped and Repaired trick as strong as, as good as, a more traditional torn and RESTORED effect? Which would... [Read More]
