This isn't exactly a bar bet, although it could be used as one. Here's the YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izQwKp0GPms
Unfortunately, this was evidently put out by a German magic shop, and the website listed on the package is defunct. After lots of searching, I have not been able to find any instructions for this effect, free or otherwise. Is anyone familiar with this and know where/how I can learn it? Thanks.

Interesting impossible object/puzzle! My curiosity's piqued as well!

Please let me know if you find any information on it!

I'm searching, but without much luck.

I'd just google the name of the trick but after watching the vid I'm not really sure what the trick is even supposed to be .... is it just me ??

If by that you mean that you immediately saw how to achieve this effect, then I guess yes. It is more a puzzle than a trick, I suppose, since nothing is gimmicked.

Looks similar to Forksaken 2.0 by Mark Traversoni & Mark Elsdon

Yes, I think it is exactly the same, except that Forksaken is a complete routine. I'm not really interested in the routine, I just want the fork and card effect. Buying Forksaken to get it is of course possible, but it would be nice to find it for a bit less.

Its £20.99 at the moment from Saturn.

Don't know how much the German variant is... but the impossible object is NOT hard to make.

Feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions. I have Forsaken and have not used it in performance. I really only got it out of curiosity.

Like I said feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Not on this one but I have Forksaken 2 by Mark and Saturn. It's very good.
