Thoughts Across Review

Thoughts Across is a solid trick with a clear plot, and its easy to perform. You'll have to mind the gaffs, and be prepared for a little subterfuge, but it's all well-taught on the DVD.

For a measly $15 you get the US Playing Cards gaffs necessary to perform a great routine, and you get a 30 minute DVD that includes two additional tricks taught by Solomon. (The extra tricks are Pure Vice Versa from The Wisdom of Solomon and Double-Crossed Switchcraft.)

The informal DVD has excellent audio and lighting, good camera work, and it also includes a Reference section where you can discover more about the various sleights that are taught.

If Thoughts Across sold for $25 it would be a good deal in today's market. At $15, it's a steal. Watch the demonstration video, and if you like the effect don't hesitate to snatch this one up. 5 stars for the value:cost ratio and the overall effect.

Manufacturer's Description:

A direct, devious method for the classic Cards Across plot.

Two spectators select a card - mentally - from a packet of ten. Without any questions, sleights, or monkey business, both cards vanish from the packet completely, and travel to another packet which has been in plain sight from the get-go.

Any cards can be thought of. There are no forces, and no palming is required.

On this DVD, you will learn David Solomon's personal handlings of Thoughts Across, as well as two bonus tricks: Double-Crossed Switchcraft and Pure Vice-Versa. Both bonus tricks can be performed with a borrowed deck.

All the necessary cards are provided, custom-printed by the United States Playing Card Company.
