Anyone have this deck?

Very strong effect.

However, does the creator not realize that this can also be done with a standard Eight Kings stack (which has the benefit of being examined)?

I won't tip the original method (I admit, it is slightly easier than using a stack), but I will share my routine using the Eight Kings stack.

I think you have invented a new principle in doing 'Deal & Drop' twice continously. First 'Deal & Drop' is to select two cards freely. And the second 'Deal & Drop' is to Force positions to place the two selected cards.

A very nice idea.

Based on this principle, I conceived a different effect and posted it in my thread 'Today's Finding'. Thanks for the inspiration.

This is a wonderful effect. Easy to remember too, unlike certain other stack effects that have a similar effect on two spectators at once. I wrote it straight into my notebook. (The good leather bound one where the nicest stuff is) :)

One thing tho. If I am to nitpick a little, the use of "a bit of mind reading" may not be the way to go since the spectator himself doesn't know the value of his card. Hence you cannot read his mind to learn it.

I'm mentioning it just in case someone reads it and takes it literally and performs the trick saying "errrr... the card you're thinking of is..."

Good one! Thank you!

Cool stuff, Tim. And Noobini, you are so right. Not really mentalism, this

Has this link been removed? I click on the link and find no card trick with eight kings.
