After keeping this under wraps for years I'm finally releasing this item. This was an item that reknowned psychic of the late 80's "Jason Michaels" used in newspaper offices to fool reporters. It was also a KILLER stage effect that wowed audiences and was done under test conditions. It's one of the cleanest card divinations ever created and the method is very diabolical.

Using a borrowed deck of cards, a spectator shuffles the deck. You also introduce a disposable plate. You hand this to the person to examine and ask them to hold it to the light to make sure it's opaque. You say people often think you secretly peek at the cards or used a marked deck.

You point out the plate will prevent you from cheating, even if the cards were marked you couldn't see them. As an example the magician takes a playing card and holds it behind the plate and ask the person if they can name the card (unless they are lucky guessers they will not be correct).

Magician extends his left hand and covers it with the plate. Magician looks away and has person place a card under the plate. To make things more difficult the card and plate are placed on the table, THE PLATE COVERING the card at all times. Magician asked the person to place their hand on the plate to hold it down and prevent the magician from tampering with it or sneaking the card out from under it.

NOW HEAR this, under these impossible conditions you REVEAL the card. The person picks up the plate and the only thing on the table is the selected card.

There are NO FORCES, NO MARKED CARDS, no mirror gimmicks of any kind. NO stacks, cards can be borrowed. NO SWITCHING OF CARDS, NO PALMING, NO tearing of corners, no secret impression devices and NO SLEIGHT of hand. This means you can devote your engery toward presentation.

This has fooled every magician I've shown it too and convinced many reporters I had real psychic powers.

LOOKS like a real demonstration of psychic powers NOT a card trick. This is something I've used for years and have finally decided to release. If you were a REAL psychic you couldn't do it much cleaner than this. Can be done under almost any conditions, nothing concealed in your hands at any time. Even if they burn your every move, nothing will be seen!

Intially Doug Tilford will have a banner for on the Café next week. You can also order direct from me the creator by sending a PM.

The price for this is $19.95 plus shipping & Handling. You get everything you need to do this including photographic directions showing you every step of this miracle. The directions contain over 10 years of refinements that make this the miracle it is. You also get the secret thing that makes this possible.

Other dealers will have this down the road but for now it's only available through Doug Tilford magic and myself.

Doug and I both mailed this to our private email lists and we got over 100 orders the first day (Thanksgiving Holiday at that). After people get these in hand I would expect some reviews to start appearing. We're mailing these out Monday or Tuesday of next week.

Devin,

This sounds real cool. I never get a chance to buy much magic as I am so busy making it but every now and then something sounds cool enough to make a purchase. Put me on your list.

I wish you luck with this.

If the idea behind "Impossible DEVINation" is a quarter interesting to every post he made. This one will be a killer.

Also Devin, just to know that the famous Jason Michaels has performed it will be an honor for me.

Hope only but the best...

Maybe you have a new D-light or Cartoon in your hands. Smile

Thank for sharing with us Devin.

Humbly

I haved shared the secret of this with my good friend KUFFS. I am also mailing him the complete trick for review next week.

Kuffs is a respected member of this forum and some of his ideas on his recent DVD have gotten rave reviews. I feel Kuffs is best qualified to review this.

I'm also sending a copy of ID to Tim Tronto for review.

I.D. is short for Impossible DEVINation. I purposely chose this name so it could be referred to as ID It also makes a lot of sense because you reveal the ID of hidden card under near impossible conditions. So feel free to refer to this as ID and save yourself some typing the long name.

This sounds sweet. I think I'll order one. Does the $4 shipping cover priority mail, or which speed shipping is it?

So this is the same method you used to fool some magazines and newspapers in the '80s?

Ian

P.s.- when the card goes under your hand, does it go under face down or up?

There are three handlings described. There are handlings that allow the card to be placed Face Down and Face up under the plate.
The third handling is my favorite, as the card is NOT looked at by the person when they place it under the plate. YOU SAY YOU Don't want them to think you read their mind!
The face down card is then sandwiched between two plates and given to them to hold. While you try to get an image of their card. You say "I'm getting the impression it's a black card, clubs, perhaps the 10 of Clubs. The upper plate is removed leaving the face down card on the other plate. The person turns the card over
NOT YOU! and of course it's the 10 of Clubs.

This blows them away.
The shipping is now $4.95 this includes PRIORITY mail to anywhere in the USA. The shipping also includes airmail to Canada.

OVERSEAS shipping is $10.00 for airmail to anyplace in the world. A Paypal link for that has been added above.

Doug Tilford's Banner for this trick will hopefully be on the Café sometime this weekend. The webmaster is completing the web page for him and the banner will be sent to Steve Brooks sometime tonight.

The reponse to this item has been overwhelming and beyond our wildest dreams. I sincerely thank you guys for your support of this project.

Since you have to send us a product, I take it that either the cards or the plates are gimmicked in some way? or are you simply sending a manual with instructions and we can do this with a deck or cards and any opaque object that isn't necessarily paper plate?

So far over 500 of these have been sold in the first 4 days of the release and will be shipping this week. This can be done with a borrowed deck of cards. I am flattered to see some of the biggest names in magic are ordering this. You would be amazed to see the list of my customers for this. It reads like a whos who of magic.
I will respect their privacy until they tell me I can quote their comments.
Thanks guys for your support.
You receive a very detailed manuscript that describes over 10 years of handling and variations. Everything you need to perform this trick is included with the trick.

I'm not going to play 20 questions on this one. The trick is very reasonably priced and I've done my research. Well informed magicians who know how this works, agree that this principle has never been used this way before.

In showing this to magicians over 10 years NOT one, and I literally mean that. NOT one had the correct solution to trick. The method is radical yet any one can learn to do it within half an hour. I hope you guys will spend more time than that to really master it.

The point is there are no difficult sleights. I haven't found one magician who I showed this too who couldn't do it within a few mintues.

Respectfully,

Devin Knight

Hmm, if the number of magicians who figured it out is "literally not one," then is it less than one or greater than one? Smile

Either way, I look forward to receiving my copy.

Every problem contains the seeds of its own solution. Unfortunately every problem also contains the seeds of an infinite number of non-solutions, so that first part really isn't super helpful.

Guys, do me a favor. We started shipping the orders today. By the end of the week many Café members will have theirs in hand.

We want to keep this a secret so please refer to what you receive as the gimmick. People are PM and asking what you get with the manuscript. Does it include cards, plates, a gimmick or what. These are attempts to guess the method by knowing what is being sent with the manuscript.

As the ad states you get everything you need to perform this effect. The ad does NOT state what the everythings are. This has been a deep secret for years and I have been advised by many people who know the workings not to tip off what is sent to you.

So PLEASE only refer to what is sent as the GIMMICK. This is a fair request. Remember when XPERT was release it was requested people not discuss certain things in order to protect the secret.

You guys have paid $20 for the secret so protect your investment by not tipping off what is being sent. Like I said before I'm not going to play 20 questions on this one. Many, many people are trying to find out what is sent with purchase. This is their only clue to the secret, or at least the direction to start looking in.

Thanks for your co-operation on this one.

Respectfully,
Devin Knight
