I'm really glad this is finally coming out.

Sansminds posted a video of this 6 years ago and always thought it looked great.

Here is the unedited performance they filmed from back then:

Is blue better than red? Thereís s price difference on Penguin. Iíd rather pay more if the blue is more effective but rather save if they are equal.

So itís... a color change of a selected card, but with a couple of weird prop cards you have to carry around and justify? Why on earth would anyone ever do this? I mean, enlighten me if thereís an upside here Iím missing, but surely this is a hundred times *less* magical looking than just... doing a color change to reveal an odd-backed card. Thatís already about as elementary as it gets technically, so the appeal of paying $30 to do a gimmicked version that looks like something you fished out of a childrensí magic kit eludes me.

I donít know, maybe because it looks amazing? If you canít figure out why I doubt anyone else can explain it to you.

http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/4129 cards with holes in them and it either vanishing or changing color have been around. Sans put this out 6 years ago so I can see how it fit in more at the time when a lot of these style effects were popping up. One justification you could use is building it up as an impossible color change done under test conditions?

I do agree though that laymen will find the cards odd but if you routine everything right it can be good magic. Personally I'd just do a color change in the spectators hands. Though another thing to remember is magicians like this stuff. Some people just do magic for fun and a hobby. So I don't see anything wrong with this and I could still see a working pro using this if routined properly.

Though if you want a sansminds effect with normal props *cough* sharpshooter looks good *cough*

What does ends 100% clean mean [?]

Obviously they can keep their card

But I guess the two props are not free to be handed out [?] for an inspection [?]

2/5 for difficulty and audience management [on their own scale]

Getting decent buzz... anybody have this yet? I love Solo by Mark Mason so not sure I need another similar trick but it looks very good (always said about SansMinds though...)

You can end 100% clean, I most likely won't bother to clean up but the option is there if you want to.

There is obviously a gimmick involved but the good news is it is very low tech and nothing will break.

If you want to replace your gimmicks you will need a hole punch to make your own and the cards, or you could cut any shape hole you like as long as you ensure the holes in the cards line up.

This is great trick, I would not say so if it was rubbish!

As with most effects that can be performed via sleight of hand or with gimmicks, the gimmicked version is cleaner. The props are only weird if you presentation doesn't give them meaning. I would wholeheartedly disagree with your assessment that this is less magical. You openly show the card both front and back before putting it in between the hole cards. While in between the hole cards, the spectator can clearly see both their signature and the back color peeking through the hole. With a simple push the signed card changes color. That is pretty freakin clean and is a routine that is not possible using sleight of hand. IMHO, YMMV...
