Topic: Spectator handling the Triple Impact Deck
Message: Posted by: Corbett (Nov 1, 2009 03:41PM)
For those of you that have this and have used it, how do you, if at all let the spectator handle the deck at the offset of the routine? Or do you bring in this deck via a deck switch mid-way through an existing card set?

I would also like to ask a question about this effect. Does the spectator always end up with the same three cards each time you perform it (implying a force of the same three cards)? Or can the effect be set so that you can have three cards selected that are different from the previous time you perform it?

3 cards are the same each time.

Thanks for the reply. I have been thinking about picking this up from the great reviews I have read on the Café. I guess the downside to the 3 cards always being the same is that you could never repeat this trick to anyone.

You could repeat it - you would just need to switch to a different triple inpact deck that you stacked.

its a great effect - we have sold many and people seem to really like how it plays to spectators.

I will say that when I have performed it, the reactions were fantastic. My wife, who is a very discerning spectator, said it was "awesome." This comes as high praise, as she is usually very unimpressed.

OK - I've taken the plunge and have ordered "Triple Impact". Can't wait to try it out.
Message: Posted by: BustedFinger (Jan 10, 2010 12:31PM)
I got Triple Impact for Christmas (my wife made we wait until then to open it) so I haven't gotten the chance to perform it much (except for her and my son). However, before I even performed it for the first time, I took the advice of some other forum members and created little colored envelopes for the spectator to put their cards in. I also created three matching envelopes that I have my predictions in. The reason for this (as the others mentioned) is to keep the cards from getting bent up from being put into and pulled from pockets.

I've read that Synchronicity and Triple Impact are more or less the same. I'm thinking of buying one, but I'm not sure which one. Can I get some advice on this? (Without revealing publically the method.) Are there actually no real differences?
Message: Posted by: BustedFinger (Jan 11, 2010 08:23PM)
I am not familiar with the Synchronicity effect. Is the effect itself the same as Triple Impact?
Message: Posted by: Corbett (Jan 12, 2010 05:31AM)
Since making my initial post, I've performed Triple Impact numerous times, allowing spectator to handle and look at the deck each time. No problems.

I suppose there may be more than one effect named Synchronicity, but if it's the one I'm thinking of, they are not the same.

I can only speak to Triple Impact, but I will say the reactions I've gotten so far, have been very positive. My wife, who is very magic savvy, loved it. And it's hard to impress my wife with much magic; as she's seen it all.

Synchronicity by Marc Paul I mean. Synchronicity and Triple Impact are about three cards and three pockets.

From that auction description, the Synchronicity effect sounds very similar to T.I. but if the description is accurate, then it may be an even stronger effect than T.I. The part that caught my attention in the description was this quote:

"every time you remove your card from your pocket first!"

You cannot do this with T.I.

I guess you can, but you gotta do it with Magician's Choice or Q by Cosmo Solano (I guess).

I honestly have to say I purchased the effect, but never got around to trying it! You guys have piqued my interest one again.
Message: Posted by: Failed Magician (Aug 14, 2010 01:11PM)
This is a strong effect especially by showing them the deck before they cut. I also like the idea of having four envelopes. Two for them, and two for us, and the "highest or lowest" card can be put into the pocket, back pocket, etc.

I'm still waiting for mine, hopefully it will be here by next week.
Message: Posted by: daffydoug (Aug 16, 2010 10:21AM)
I honestly think once you read the instruction sheet, you'll be delighted with your purchase.

But don't be like me! Actually get out there and use the thing!

I think that TI is a wonderful effect that is perfectly suited to a powerful delivery.

Syncronicity (if it is the one I use) is significantly differen. The spectator can choose three completely free choice cards and they match perfectly to the ones that were in your wallet before the effect even started. Of course there is a novel method that makes it go. But I have done Syncronicity and TI back to back and had tremendous response.

Both are killer effects.

I got T.I. and in the booklet there's an explanation for you to be able to pull out your card first. If I'm not mistaken, Nardi's demo using this also showing that he took his card first before the spectator.

I can do it I guess, but I'm using two kraft manila envelopes. Works the same with same ending too.

Why not just f---- thee card from an ordinary shuffled deck and you therefore have no worries at all about the deck.
Message: Posted by: ejohn (Dec 8, 2010 02:47PM)
That "three cards".
Message: Posted by: Corbett (Dec 8, 2010 03:01PM)
The impact of this routine is that the spectator handles the cards and makes the cut to find the cards.
Message: Posted by: ejohn (Dec 10, 2010 12:56PM)
Why not the Criss-Cross, or Cut Deeper, etc.?
Message: Posted by: Corbett (Dec 10, 2010 01:05PM)
If you don't like the effect, don't buy it or do it. There is no point in your continuing to argue the different
ways it could be done. By all means feel free to do it another way if you like.
Message: Posted by: ejohn (Dec 10, 2010 11:18PM)
Corbett, I was not arguing. Just pointing something out. I love the effect. John
Message: Posted by: Failed Magician (Dec 11, 2010 02:07PM)
Cut deeper? Three times? Even the most uneducated audience will pick it up fast.

True. The illusion here is the chance of getting that three cards out of a deck that match with our prediction. :)
Message: Posted by: ejohn (Dec 13, 2010 11:57AM)
Failed, In the TI demo, there is only one cut to locate three cards, not three.
Message: Posted by: Failed Magician (Dec 14, 2010 11:53AM)
Yeah? So? What are you trying to say? Synchronicity will allow them to cut three times to get their cards?
Message: Posted by: ejohn (Dec 14, 2010 03:13PM)
Sorry, I thought the discussion was about TI.
Message: Posted by: Failed Magician (Dec 15, 2010 08:01AM)
Yeah I did, but then you said something why not forcing three cards. The beauty of this trick is they touch and cut the deck by themselves. They cut anywhere they want, take three cards, and that's it.
Message: Posted by: ejohn (Dec 16, 2010 06:21PM)
My point is that that effect can be done with an ordinary deck and a simple force. Amen. I'm outa here. John
Message: Posted by: Failed Magician (Dec 17, 2010 09:59AM)
That's true, but even a simple force will require you to keep holding or touching the deck. Unless you want them to do Cut Deeper Force for three times, which I think is not wise since it will give the method away.

I could do this with regular deck tho, and it looks extremely clean, but let's save it for another rainy day :)
