This is another of several packet tricks included in The Ultimate Card Trick Collection by Paul Hallas. Paul is a respected authority on packet tricks, having authored several books on the subject. Originally this packet trick came with a DVD, but now it comes with just the cards, and a link to a special website with detailed video instructions.

Not Another 3 Card Trick


Effect: After introducing the idea of the world famous 3 card trick normally known as 3 card monte, you introduce four blank cards. Why call it a three card trick if they are obviously more than three cards? Because one at a time, the three cards are turned into 3s! There's an amusing twist at the end because the final card is printed on the back - because you used the wrong sleeve to make it change!

See Paul's performance of Not Another 3 Card Trick here:

Comment: Paul introduces by saying that this is probably his favourite packet trick; it's very commercial, and ideal as an opener for table-hoppers and walk-around, because it is quick and entertaining, and because it is instantly re-set when you are finished. It's certainly very easy to learn, and if you already know the Flustration Count, then there's just one other fairly basic move Paul teaches, and the gaff cards will do the rest of the hard work.

The cards are poker-sized, and have an air cushion style finish, and seem to be durable and handle well. The video production quality is excellent, with very clear audio and great visuals and multiple camera angles. Paul's teaching is solid, and he explains all the sleights needed, although already having an ability with the fundamentals of card magic will make learning this much easier. Still, this routine isn't complex, and there's no knuckle-busting moves. The novelty element of these cards can produce some fun and light-hearted magic. It may not be killer material, but with the right presentation, it can be used to create some good reactions and entertainment.
