This morning I got an email from "Magic From Holland" with Ron Timmer's new release: 52 to 1. The trailer looks good. The price is reasonable, around $25 (19.99 euros). Even though I'm tempted to hit the "buy" button, I thought I'd ask if any of you have seen the trick and can provide a review.

The ball is in your court...

Haven't seen any reviews yet but the performance confused me a bit. On the one hand, the spectator chooses a card, which the performer disregards because it may have been "influenced." So the spectator is asked to just think of a card, which ends up being on the 52 on 1 card -- which then turns into the card that the spectator originally chose, but the performer disregarded. I'm sure there are many other ways to construct the routine but the fact that the thought of card isn't produced (except for the 52 on 1 card) felt like a bit of a letdown.

Ah! I see your point The gag card, which displays all 52 cards, turns into the physically picked/touched card, but not into the thought of card. I like the card change and the fact the changed gag card can be examined.

If there are no reviews in a few days I may have to buy it to review myself.

Are you speaking of the 52 to 1 trick, or the 52 to 1 DECK? The DECK is from David Penn and Wayne Fox and is an altogether different effect.

"52 to 1 trick by Ron Timmer" as I wrote in the post heading, and the posts themselves. Totally unrelated to Penn and Fox.

Hi my Appologies for a late reply ;-)

The full routine what I also teach is this:
Spectator picks a card, but I say I could have influent you. So just THINK of a card too (not the same). Lets say they pick the queen of hearts and they ase thinking of the ace of diamonds. The queen is tabled and now you show the prediction and turn it over to "reveal" their thought of card. It gets a laught.
As a extra laught you say you have predicted the chosen queen as well Smile
Now you do the visible change from the 52 to just 1... the queen

BUT... as a kicker the tabled queen has changed into the thought of card, the ace of diamonds in this case!

Hope this clears out and makes more sense!
