Effect : (My Description..lol) You show a deck of cards. You show fronts and backs. You tell a spectator to just THINK of a card that they never have to name. You say in 3 seconds that their card will be "Gone". You tell them to deal through the cards and count out out loud. Now ONE of two thing will happen. #1 (Best Scenario) they count and only 51 cards is there, their card is the ONLY card missing. #2 As they count they reach their Card. They turn it over and on the back it says "Gone". I hope that's not giving it away.

My Review : I have MIXED FEELINGS on this. I think this is a VERY, very strong effect CONSIDERING it's option one. I just don't like option two nor do I think it'll fool much people. This ISN'T examinable. The ideas are great. I have TWO reviews DEPENDING on what option occurs. For Option (1) I give this a 9 (With 10 being PERFECT). Foe Option (2) I only give this like a 5. So you have a 50/50 chance of getting Option One. THAT'S THE ONE YOU WANT. So I reccomend this with the above reservations, Ed, (Eddini).

Thanks for another fine review. A few months ago, I unsuccessfully tried to buy a book called Effortless Card Magic. I’m not certain, but I think this trick is just one of many found in the book. I guess that helps explain why it’s so hard to find. No one wants to sell their copy.

This sounds like a Barry Richardson effect from his first book

It is in Effortless Card Magic and it plays well with either ending, however you are right -- ending 1 is the stronger of the two!

This effect has been on the market for many, many years already. Yes, it does sell for $20. and has some factory printing on half the deck. There was another Israeli dealer touring the US at that time selling the same effect but, in the second senerio, instead of the word "GONE" appearing on the card, your initials are written there( The performers initials). He sold this for $40.00! Twice the price!! So, he provided you with in essence a deck of cards and instructions...you wrote your initials as many times as is needed!!!!

The initials idea sounds a bit better. Ed, (Eddini).

Ed, without giving anything away, is there any way to better "help" the spectator to choose a card that will end up in option 1 scenario? If so, this could give us a better chance of having the BEST outcome. Any ideas?

Vanished & GONE is great I have been using it successfully ! Yeh I also got sucked into the UK 40.00 effect with the intials . Yurval Keren was selling this 40.00 for a deck of cards & you wrote your intials on the certain cards . Highway robery this should be illegal same principal as GONE .

Yes this trick is TOP CLASS, but it's the one ending I just don't care for. As far as the guy asking if there is a way to make the card actually vanishing happen, there isn't. All I will say is as they're counting you're heart is in your throat hoping they don't see their card...lol, Ed, (Eddini).

Vanished and gone looks like an improvement on an old Eddie Joseph effect called Premonition Outdone, sold by Abbotts.....Both are really good effects....

Does anyone have the link to where one can purchase the E-Book? I've been looking for this book for a long time. Will it have all the tricks that were in the original "Effortless Card Magic?" Thanks much!
