Simplex Monte (Blue) Review

The Three Card Monte has been part of our culture for at least 600 years. It was well known by the 15th century. Most methods depend on sleight of hand and misdirection. At best it can be a gambling demonstration which will trigger comments like, "I wouldn't want to play cards with you." If that is not a response you want and are looking for a fun, visual and magical variation, then Simplex Monte may be just what you need.

This release from Alakazam Magic UK comes with the necessary gaffed Bicycle Rider Back cards and an instructional DVD. The gaff is credited to Rob Bromley but its a modern upgrade to an old gimmick. It was described in Hoffman's Modern Magic (1876) as well as New Era Card Tricks (1897). This new version works effortless and automatically. The cards are well made.

On the DVD, Peter Nardi and Dave Loosley demonstrate three routine variations. The first is the most visual and magical. The second leaves you cleaner but you pay the price of loosing some of the visual changes. The third version is the closest to the traditional Three Card Monte. The disk finishes with Nardi and Loosley sharing some additional visual changes that can worked into the routine.

Simplex Monte is fun, visual magic.
