Hyper-Bent-Elation Review

I'm predisposed to like this effect. I love optical illusions and topology problems. I've been playing with hyper cards since I was a kid.

Darryl has combined this “puzzle” with a magical transposition. Two cards are placed together, cut and bent to form two hyper cards and, in the process, the face and back transfer leaving you with one double-facer and one double-backer.

After playing with it, I'm not as excited as I had expected. After reading the instructions and working with the cards, I decided to watch the DVD. I think my issue is a lack of a sense of “magic”. It's really more of a puzzle than anything else. So it's really up to the performer to turn this puzzle into magic.

A few notes:

You can have the cards signed. If you choose to do this, you might want to make sure you do it for a couple. Otherwise the two people might end up fighting over which one gets the double-facer with the two signatures (the double-backer is less interesting in this case).

If you're going to do this, I highly suggest looking at The Detective Trick on the DVD. It's a solid routine and, most importantly adds some magic to the routine.

Remember that each performance destroys two cards. Since both cards are “special”, you'll need to have a good source for double-back and double-face cards.

And don't skip the “Bonus Ideas” section of the DVD. There's at least one idea that you'll not want to miss.
