Imagine this: the magician removes a pack of cards from the box. The entire deck vanishes leaving only one card. The remainder has reappeared in the box. Sounds like a great effect. It is and it's one of the many on the Traveling Deck 2.0 DVD. Unfortunately it's also the effect of the original Paul Harris Vanishing Deck. The PH version was one of his earliest releases in the 70's and has been reworked and improved over the years. Traveling Deck 2.0 is another case of accidental reinvention by creators who develop something but neglect to do the research to see if it's truly original.

Traveling Deck 2.0 is a well shot and edited DVD with a well made gimmick. The DVD has a few effects using the gimmick that require audience management as the card that remains cannot be examined. There are instructions on how to change the gimmick if you use a different card brand as well as how to change the face card. All in all its a nice product. It's just not new or original.

I wish I could give a higher than middle rating but I cannot. The lack of research or crediting in today's interconnected magic world cannot be overlooked. Especially given that the creator, Takel, can be connected to Paul Harris Presents through his former collaborators in a few steps.

Manufacturer's Description:

Now with a brand new second gimmick, not only are you able to vanish a pack of cards but the box as well!

Hold a card box with you hand; instantly, in front of the spectator, the card box disappears leaving you with a single card. Just as instantly you can make the whole deck disappear leaving you with a single card right in front of your spectator.

Imagine the scene - you take a pack of cards out of a card box. Then the entire deck vanishes with the exception of one card. You explain to the spectator that the deck has gone back inside the card box. You go back to the card box and take out the pack of cards - Amazing!

This is one of many routines that are possible with the 'Travelling Deck' gimmick.
Each gimmick is custom made, by hand.

The accompanying DVD explains a range of possible 'Travelling Deck' routines; for example, change a deck of cards into a currency note or a 52 on 1 card. We explain how to modify and repair your gimmick if necessary. Also included on the DVD are four, complete routines as well as a host of ideas and suggestions.

You will find it hard to put the 'Travelling Deck' down. It's fun to perform and peoples' reactions to it are just out of this world!

No pulls, topits or difficult sleights.

The perfect opening for any table hopper.
