Astonish Review

Official Review

Astonish combines themes from several routines in my own repertoire, so I suppose I was destined to like it!

The description gives you the effect, so let me just comment on specific pieces that may be important if you're considering purchasing this effect:

  • While the description has you starting with the box and prediction card already on the table, there's no reason you couldn't have all of the cards in the box and just remove the red-backed deck, leaving the blue-backed prediction card in the box.

  • You'll want to have some audience management skills if you're going to allow the deck to be shuffled by an audience member. If you're not confident handing out the deck, there's no reason you can't shuffle yourself or just leave the shuffle out since it's not inherently necessary for a magical effect.

  • There are no real "sleights" to speak of. There's only one moment where you need to be a bit careful with the cards and the choreography of the routine makes even that pretty simple.
