Guessing the kicker - new deck order - is dependent on a pretty good faro here?

Yeah, that's gonna be the deciding factor for me. I doubt my sausage-like fingers will ever be able to pull of a perfect faro.

Intermediate level. I guess it is.

Pegasus, would you please just tell us what you really think


It seems as though he thinks ungimmicked triumph routines suck.


I'd love for him to take a look at Kostya's... IMHO, there's no better ungimmicked triumph

I'm late to this conversation, but I really like Bannon's Triumph as well; he teaches it in one of his Move Zero videos. I pair it with the Chicago Opener: I show the faces of the card quickly, false overhand shuffle, Chicago Opener, another false shuffle, and the deck is already set up for Bannon's Triumph. BT is the one where they pick a card, you break the deck into four stacks, turn stacks 2 and 4 face up, then shuffle them together stack by stack. Then you tell them that something in the arrangement of the cards will tell you what card they chose. You spread the deck, and the only face-up cards are (for example) the clubs, and they're all in perfect ace-king order, with the missing card being the spectator's selection.


That sounds like 'Play it Straight Triumph' from the Ammar Easy to Master series - maybe he got it from Bannon. I agree, its definitely one of the best ones!

Nevermind, found the instruction link. The creator maybe thought they were oh, so clever, but I’ll call it dumb decision.

I would go so far as to NOT recommend this trick based on how the instructional link is provided...but that's just me...full review coming...

My thoughts ... the instruction link is on the tuck case along with the password: brilliant! You'll never lose it

PLUS the title of the gaff deck is printed on the tuck case so you're never staring at it in your case wondering ... "which gimmicked deck is this?" GENIUS !!!

I loved this so much, I got a second one to give away in my huge magic give away this summer

Yes I agree with gaff title on box it’s great. But if you receive this and don’t know about the link in the teeny tiny print on the flap, you wouldn’t necessarily know to look there.
I normally download the video tutorials in any case.

Ok, so basically unless you can do a perfect faro, which is the basis of the kicker, which is the real selling point of this effect, you might as well do any of a number of triumph routines using an ungaffed deck. In the instructional video, I just love the 30-second faro lesson, which boils down to a closeup of someone who can do a perfect faro doing a perfect faro, which is of no help whatsoever.

I totally agree with Topcliffe's comments. Unless you feel confident that you can guarantee a perfect faro under fire, you are basically paying for a very heavily gimmicked deck just to perform a basic Triumph! The advertising copy does not make this at all clear. I'll be reselling my unopened deck!

Thanks, Kaan!
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

The end is what makes this game unique in print.The latter is strongly reminiscent of 52 Shades of Red by Shin Lim.Anarchy remains very pretty in video, but in practice .... you will be very restricted at the level of the game, not very natural.

You know, after all my complaints about faroing, I gotta hand it to Ryan Goh: in the end he's motivated me to learn to faro. I really didn't think I'd get it, but for the last few days I've been trying over and over, at first with zero success (I threw one deck in the trash after smashing all the cards together and letting out a prodigious stream of profanity), but gradually it started clicking. I can faro pretty well now: not perfectly, but it's getting there. Anyway, if I can do it, I'm sure anyone can, it just takes a bit of obsessive repetition like all moves do. Just wanted to balance out my negative comments with something positive. Now if I could just devote the same amount of effort to perfecting the pass...

Nice job Topcliffe, it's fun when you get it. I'm thinking for this trick it might even be possible to get away with a few mistakes - as the spectator is unlikely to notice, for example, if the 6 and 7 of clubs are reversed. And even if the spectator notices a couple of discrepancies at the end it's still quite impressive

I think this has potential if you put time into practicing it.
