Is it smart to buy some 'special' glue with it? With other words: does the gimmick wear out? (Not trying to let you reveal the method) Smile

I've answered your question in inner thoughts.

Please refrain from fishing for methods in the open forum.

Yes Martin.

Without the change to blanks the effect is remembered as a mental mystery.

With the change to blanks the effect is remembered as a magic trick.

I know because I have asked my audiences what they remember. In case one they have no idea how I made my prediction. In case two they wonder how the cards turned blank (even though is isn't actually the case it's what they remember, blank cards are very unusual to a layperson.

Both have merits, I tailor my ending to the crowd.

This is still the strongest trick I do.

In fact, I like it so much you'll see my name on the front of the box the trick comes in Smile

Wasn't fishing at all (like I've mentioned).
Was just hoping on a simple yes or no. It's important to me, because I try to avoid those tricks, because I have some bad experiences with it.

Thanks for your understanding

So how often do you have to make another cut before the reveal? Is it in, let's say 60%, 30%, 10% of the cases? And: Is it easy to know when you have to make another cut?

For me it's been about half the time. You will know immediately if you have to. When they are done cutting and I see it's not in position I say give it one more cut for good luck. If that doesn't do it, I make the last cut while emphasizing how random each cut makes it.

Just to understand you correctly: The audience would think that all cards were the predicted card at first and then turned blank?

To me, the magic is that the spectator puts the joker right next to the jack, while every other card is blank

I think that's what is intended, although it makes as already said no logical sense.

I got Loxley yesterday. Wonderful trick. I'm just not very happy with the gimmicked card. The way the card is gimmicked in Richard Sanders Ace is way better. So, anyone have any ideas how to gimmick a card like that? I don't want to say too much, but the included material for the gimmicked card is too visible and a bit tinted. That's my only complaint, and I guess it would be easy to solve if you just know how to gimmick it properly... If anyone have any ideas, please PM me Smile.

Magician's guilt. Don't worry about it, nobody else will.

I don't own this trick, but does the spectator clearly see the gimmick? Just a question ;-)
