Exactly Rick reignofsound can yawn all day long as far as I am concerned it will never ever bother me .
What bothers me is how dealers make this out to be new when they know full well it is not , and it has never really ever fooled them .
It’s a very very good effect and it always was but it’s also very very old .
Never try to kid a kidder because you will struggle badly with me Gaz 🙂

I like this "Premonition" type effect, and I believe On Target does the job.

BTW: The trick that CAN be Explained by Mark Elsdon will enable you to do a very clean version of the premonition effect; if you have the performance experience to test it out.

Sorry I meant yawn at the effect.
Dealing cards, then more dealing cards.
Yawn!

Sorry yes I misunderstood and I agree dealing effects can be boring to the spectators Gaz 🙂

You don't have to deal - you can spread fast. The "missing" part can happen fast lots of ways and this is effective though I prefer Juxtaposition . . .

Not familiar with this effect or any previous versions. But after watching the trailer performance, I like how it looks.

While watching it, I had an idea for how it could be done with two regular decks. I tried it out and it worked a charm.

After a quick set-up, the routine looks the same in terms of what the audience and participant see. However, you can go through the 'blue' deck at any pace as all the cards are different (due to being a regular deck). They can also inspect both decks if they so wanted (after the reveal).

I will still check out 'On Target' or 'Juxtaposition' as I like the look of this effect. And it's always good to have various handlings for different situations.

The problem (not for us) is, if you know a bit or a bit more than a bit... you have not to buy it anymore... Smile Jan

Hi Gaz - yep, all are different in both decks. The method simply requires the use of an old technique, but for those that know it and are confident with it will have no problem.

It just goes to show the incredibly poor level of knowledge amongst modern-day magicians, to believe that either the effect OR method offered here is anything new.

How can Sean claim this as his effect?

How can Alakazam release this effect, as if it is something new? Seriously?

I bought it from Repro Magic around 1982; and it had cobwebs on back then!

How can they charge this amount for basically 2 decks of Bikes?

Why would anyone who works commercially want the hassle of carrying 2 extra decks (that cannot really be used for anything else; nor undergo any level of examination at the conclusion)?

Said it before - for a community of people who are supposed to be able to fool others, there are countless amongst us who will fall for the 3 card trick each and every time.
