Unsolicted review:

"Alice's Revenge is a GREAT trick. It rocks! It rolls! It fools! It's fun to perform! If you don't have it, you should. (Is that okay, Bob? Will you return my puppy unharmed now?) Seriously, you won't be disappointed if you spend $15.00 on Alice's Revenge."--A.V.

(I returned the puppy but kept the car.)

I picked this up the other day and did as Gary Jones suggested -- leaving one queen faded ---it absolutely kills!!

Just got this. Very cool idea! I see some people have already talked about stuff being on the blank card. That was kind of my immediate thought and sent this idea to Bob... I left out a few details of the cards because that would give too much away here:

By the way, thinking a little ahead, I can see this as a weird two part mentalism effect. You do something first in which you get some information from the spectator without them knowing it. You then either pocket write or nail write on one side of a blank card. The envelope you use has a slit in the back and about an inch from the bottom. Coming through that slit is the Q of Clubs. Now you can steal the double blank that you wrote the info on like birthdate, or an animal he chose, or maybe even a drawing dupe, etc, and you slide that in between the card there and into the envelope. Now when you pull out the cards they coalesce into the four card packet as they come out of the envelope.

So now you would have the idea that they imagine one card gone and it is and somehow the blank card has their thought on it

Oh, boy! Another idea hit me as I was doing my daily walk. I was rushing to get back so I wouldn’t forget it. I would call this Twisted Alice’s Anniversary.

You do this at a wedding, anniversary or to a couple: You show the envelope and a deck. You say you will do an experiment with couple. Since the lady is the Queen of this couple she has to name any Queen that is in the envelope. She does and it’s, let’s say Queen of Diamonds. Now you tell her, since she is the Queen, to order her mate to call stop any time as you flip through the deck of cards. He does. You show he cut to, let’s say, the 8 of Clubs. You now say they will create an impossible effect. You have them clasp the 8 of Clubs between their hands. You say when you snap their fingers they are to magically transport her Queen of Diamonds into their hands and send his 8 of Clubs into the envelope. You snap. You open the envelope and there are 3 face up queens but one face down card and since her diamonds is not showing then it must be the 8 of Clubs. You take that card out and it’s has two backs and no faces. You act confused then realize, “Wait, if you guys just sent the backs then… Wow! Look in your hands.” They find that card is an 8 of Clubs on one side and Queen of Diamonds on the other. You say, “Well, look at that. You are so matched that you didn’t even want to separate from each other for one moment. You created a card that is as locked together as you are.” Oh, and to create a lasting memory that will change, have the lady side the Clubs with “To Larry, my love forever, Susan” and he signs on the Diamond “To Susan, my love forever, Larry” and you take the double backer and make a large heart shape on each side and have them put their initials in the hearts as if they carved them into a tree. They will keep this and later, believe me, will tell others that they picked and signed cards and it all ended up in this way.

So this is Anniversary Waltz meets Twisted Sisters meets Alice’s Revenge
