"GHOST FLIGHT
by Peter Duffie

Released by our friend Peter Duffy, a trick that card lovers will have a ball with. Hand out eight cards which are blank on both sides, then hand out four regular cards of the same value. Lay a piece of cardboard down that has been examined. Sandwich each playing card between two blank cards. Pick up each packet and the card has disappeared and now there are three blank cards! (No false counts!) All four regular cards disappear one by one and reappear under the cardboard! Great routine. Comes with the cards, cardboard and routine. $15.00"

If that's not incredible, I don't know what is Smile.

So, does anyone have any experience with this effect? How is it? Can I supply the four of a kind?

Thanks

I have this trick. The description is accurate. Peter Duffie is a very clever thinker, and this trick is no exception. Very simple sleights--I would give it a difficulty of 1.5 out of 5. Four of a kind is determined by "blank cards" (think MacDonald's Aces). Cards that reappear under cardboard are fully examinable.

Ahemmm... where exactly are you going to do this trick and why?

Ahemmm...Actually, I don't know where or why I would be performing this. It looks strong, and it seems like it could end a four ace routine very nicely, but interestingly enough, I haven't even said anything about buying it.

It looks like a very strong effect, it would definently be an interesting end to a four ace routine.

Yeah, but I would leave out the big card if I was to end a routine with it. It seems to me like the aces vanishing completely is a more appropriate finish to a routine than the aces traveling to under a big card.

That makes sense, leaving the spectators completely clueless as to where the cards are would make for a great ending.

I liked it it reminded me of Mcdonalds Ace's or something like that. My only issues would be the big card. Pocket management an all. Would love here a review though.

Just for the record, the jumbo card is not necessary. In fact, if you read the description you will discover the effect is actually taught using a handkerchief. We used the jumbo card for the demo simply because it was handy and a little easier to keep in frame for the video.

Best,

Yes does remind one of McDonald's aces. I may get one too. Definately look up McDonald aces and purchase that too. If you like Ghost Flight, you'll love MA.

Very nice. I have MA and people generally love MA. I think the Ghost Flight by Peter Duffy is even stronger if you don't even need to do a false count.

Hi magic people,

Sorry to revive an old thread but I just wanted to let you know that Ghost Flight is available again from Kaymar Magic - we bought the rights and have reproduced the effect, as it's a favourite of mine Smile

Hi Liam,

Glad to see it being released again. It really is a very nice piece of magic.

Good luck with it.

Zap (and Liam and anyone else who cares to answer),


This looks like a great trick. Without revealing methods, could you give an idea, please of how we should interpret a difficulty level of 1.5 out of 5? I've read a lot and have been practicing sleights, but I'm not far beyond the beginner level. Does the trick use false counts? How does it compare in difficulty to, say, Color Monte? Feel free to PM me if that would be more appropriate.


Thanks,


Bob
