GONE is an excellent packet trick that packs a punch. Alakazam presents Daniel Bryan's trick which is easy to do, is inexpensive and comes with an excellent instructional digital download.

In GONE, the performer displays what appears to be a stack of 5 face up cards. One is removed as the stack of cards are turned face down. The one card is then inserted face up into the face down cards. Instantly, that card apparently disappears, leaving 4 face down cards. Then the cards are placed in the spectator's cupped hands and claims that they are GONE. When the spectator opens his hands, to the disappointment of the performer, the 4 cards are still there. BUT WAIT, the cards are then turned over one at a time and the faces of the cards have transformed into individual letters which spell... G..O..N..E! The cards can then be found in your pocket, or not, depending on your presentation.

GONE requires gimmicked cards, which come with the purchase and which have either red or blue bicycle backs. The 32 minutes instructional video is excellent. First, Peter Nardi gives a quick studio instruction and teaches his own patter which is great. Then, Daniel Bryan teaches the trick in a studio setting and shows a few live performances. This trick really knocks out your audience, as you will see. Bryan then teaches some alternate handlings and routines with GONE which are worthwhile.

This trick will require a set-up which takes a few seconds. The reset also only takes a few second. My only small comment to the instructional video is that the set-up demonstration should have been shot from the performers point of view and not facing the spectator's POV.

Although you are never really completely clean and the GONE cards cannot all be inspected, you can put the cards away and go into the next trick quickly and easily.

This is a great value and a great trick. You will no doubt get much use out of this one.
