This is like Cosmos that I released several years ago.

In my opinion there are two weaknesses to this presentation (even though I think it's kinda clever)

I like the tactile feature of determining the colors, but using four piles seems unmotivated.
The magician places the cards on the correct pile wihtout any explanation as to why he sometimes chooses one red pile over another.

When I released Cosmos, my motivation of four piles was two spectators in a race. Or if you perform for one spec, the spec is in a race with you.

Hi Mark,

Yes, I am going to release a new version of Cosmos.

It's called Cosmos 2. It's very different from the first Cosmos. I'm still trying to decide who I should release it with.

I hope It'll be released before the end of the year.

Can every single card be examined by the spectator, even the first 4 cards that are used to create the piles?

Regards,
Mike

Just a couple of questions if someone would be so kind to answer them ....

Can the special deck be examined?

Can this be done 1-1 or do you need a minimum of two spectators?

Thanks in advance.....


It can be examined, and you can even give as a souvenir to one of your spectators, they won't find anything! (in fact they do almost all the handling through the effect).

Just got this effect after positive review in Genii, but I have to say, the deck that I received does not allow for a 100% sure fire result. This is not a matter of practice. To say more would expose too much, but this deck has not been perfected.

I'm having the same problem and I can't imagine anyone doing this smoothly enough for it to be effective. Is it possible there is a quality control issue with the decks?

I think I was hasty in my previous criticism of the deck. The method is very clever and works fine given enough practice. The fact that you won't have 100% accuracy without considerable pactice also means that the spectator will never discover the secret. There is no quality control issue with the decks.

I am thinking about purchasing this effect, however I am concerned about the fact that you must use 4 indicator cards (2 black and 2 red) Has anyone who has performed this trick had any spectators question the fact that you have 2 red cards and 2 black cards and why you just wouldn't have one pile for reds and one pile for blacks.
