My latest release, a new version of the old classic, first released by Haines House of Cards back in the early 50s. This version allows you to deal each card on the table cleaning showing both sides. Also note NO rotating the cards 180 degrees to show the changes. Very easy to do and almost selfworking. No sleights.

Seeing the backs and then having them go blank without turning the cards is very stunning to lay people. Looks like trick photography.

See demo:

Here is the official blurb. Hocus-Pocus will have this in stock next week for immediate shipment. Not a presale.

This is one of the most visual and eye-appealing tricks you can do. Looks like trick photography and takes around 30 seconds to perform. No boring take a card effect, but a quick visual effect that packs a punch. Best of all, it is almost self-working and requires no sleights. You can learn to do this is about 5 minutes. Yes, it is that easy to do! Resets in 3 seconds! This is perfect for strolling gigs because of the instant reset.

EFFECT: Magicians says he would like to share a dream he had. He cleanly shows five playing cards back and front. It is a winning poker hand and the stakes are high. Suddenly, the backs of the cards go blank, in an almost effortless manner, five backs are seen and suddenly they turn into blank cards WITH NO ROTATING THE CARDS 180 DEGREES. The performer shows the faces while the cards are still fanned. The faces are now blank too! Now for the killer bit, the performer deals the five cards on the table turning each card over, showing only five blank cards, blank on both sides!

The performer's winning poker hand has gone to the worst poker hand. NOTHING! This effect will cause your spectator to react and scream when they see the visual and magical change of playing cards freely shown on both sides, instantly changing to blank cards shown on both sides. This is one of those effects that will have people saying, "What the f#@$."

Can the cards be picked up of the table at the finish?

Yes, you can easily pick up the cards at the end, even while the spectators are watching. Once you have the packet in your hands, you can reset the trick in 2 seconds and you are ready to show again to another group of spectators if doing a strolling gig.

Wow! That looks great! Could be a cool version of "The Poker Test" (2.0)?

Many people have asked me how this is different from other versions that have been on the market. Well for one, you can cleanly deal the cards on the table. Watch this new video showing the trick done in reverse. As clean as it gets and a real lay fooler. This video also shows the cards being picked up off the table both times.

The thing I like about this version, is that to my knowledge, that no other version allows, is that you can slowly and freely deal the cards on the table showing both the full fronts and backs of the cards BEFORE the effect and AFTER the effect. There is no unnatural showing of the cards, such as spreading to show only half of the card because of a half and half card. Full faces and backs seen at all times. It as about as short and to the point as possible. Everything done in a natural manner and best of all no sleights or get readys. The dealing of the cards on the table showing both fronts and backs is very puzzling to many magicians. Yet,this trick is almost self-working and can be learned in a few minutes. Smile

Devin- when the card goes from the bottom to the top as it turns blank, and then you spread them showing all of the cards to be blank, can they be spread more during that part? And when you turn your hand over for a second to show the other side to be blank too, can you move your hand out of the way? Anyway, this looks great!!! I love these type of effects. I am mad because I just placed a huge order from Hocus Pocus and I missed this!

You can spread the cards as much as you like.
