I've just watched the explanation for this effect and must say I was very surprised how much thought Liam has put into this to make it very easy to do.

The routine is well constructed and as mentioned above you don't need to replace the cards every time, but if working at a paid gig I'm sure it would be worth having the cards signed and giving them away.

You don't need to buy the whole trick again to refill you can just buy the required item, we stock them.

We have this in stock now at

#theshopwithstock Pleased to be different!

I wonder if the effect would be as impressive if the cards weren't signed.

I think the signing is key to the strength of the effect. if you don't want the cards signed, you can always use signed stickers which Liam suggests on the DVD.

I actually like the idea of using signed stickers (for some effects) as this is another layer of abstraction that leads the spectator down the garden path if they try to reverse engineer the method.

I also perform a similar effect (ouija card) - by Mark Bendell and again the signing is essential to make the effect strong, though this isn't a card box to pocket effect, its deck to pocket and has a bizzare magic plot.

For me the misdirection effect is a very strong card box to pocket effect, with a great plot and has several subtleties built all of which make the effect very fooling and a Magican fooler.

I guess you don't have to write MIS and DIRECTION on the cards? It would look stupid/suspicious if I used an english word when performing it in a country where english isn't a native language? How many times can you perform the effect with the included cards without getting the refill?

I think this probably would be fun to perform.

But I don't think it can touch Simon Aronson's Side-Swiped:
