Kozmo,

Where, in the USA, can this be purchased?

Keep in mind the cards are never in the box, because you have to produce the circles at the end. So for pocket management you have to make room for a one trick deck, and its box. Visual, looks fun but not a worker for walk around in my opinion.

I think the dumping of the holes is a bit of a mess. A fun mess but a mess none the less. I would probably skip that part and just end with the hole jumping to the deck.

I don't see any need to dump out the cutouts. The ending should be to put the cards in the box and then restore them. Dump the card out and show a regular deck. Now that would be a kicker ending.

I strongly disagree that this isn't a worker with respect. However I would not do the productin of the holes at the end. Not important. The effect is the hole deck with oles. Very strong and a big surprise.

It will be available in the next 2 weeks inside the US

Agreed, I don't think I would do the end production.

I USUALLY stay away from one deck effects, but a switch of decks after this routine is kind of justified! Or I would use it as my closing card routine.

The WPR lads "featured" it on today's show. They said if they were reviewing it, it would have gotten worker of the week ( they are only doing Blackpool features this week ).

If you are talking about the portion of the routine where the hole 'visibly' transfers from one card to the other as the card is moved back and forth slowly on the deck, this (to me) is reminiscient of "Bag For Life", where what looks visible to us is not noticed by the spectator due to what they assume they are seeing.

That's how I read it, anyway.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

£24 for a deck with holes punched in it! You could always cut the holes yourself, perhaps square ones to make it easier.
Better still, read Simon Lovell's trick called 'Heartless', where all the deck apart from the 4 kings ends up with their centres completely missing.
It's in his 'Simon Says' book, amongst other places.

Geggy are you serious? This would SLAY lay people! You are a magician, my friend. That's why it's obvious to you. Dave Forrest has a similar effect to the first phase from his Project Zero DVD and it's killer. A decent deck switch and you are gold for this.

This looks a lot like Jay Sankey's "Terra Unfirma" from 'The Sankey Sanders Sessions.' It looks like they have taken it to a whole (no pun intended, ok maybe a little) new level. I think this would definitely get great reactions.

I'm pretty sure this plays very strong for lay people.....POSITIVE!
It's so deceptive....when Craig did it he didn't use all the displays showing the deck as real....Marcs handling is so strong....Killed me when I first saw it
