I really enjoy performing Fragment, and I realize that one of its strengths is that it can be done totally impromptu with a borrowed deck of cards - which is great. But the reality is, most of the time I perform this, I'm in a situation where no one has a deck of cards - just me...and in those circumstance, I actually prefer to use a marked deck. Why? Because during the performance, you're claiming to have read their mind and know their card - so when they finally deal down to the card but just before they turn it over I say "And your card was the 4 of hearts, right?" When they confirm it, I give them a slight smile like "Great, I got it!" and then they turn over the 4 or hearts (or whatever card they selected). Hope that makes sense, and hope I'm not giving anything away.


Completely logical. Nice!
There is a road - no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night. And if you go, no one may follow; that path is for your steps alone.

I can obviously see how a marked deck would work with this but to me it’s whole strength is that it can be performed with any borrowed shuffled deck that doesn’t have to even be complete . You make much more use of a marked deck with effects than something that just doesn’t require it imo Gaz 🙂

Completely agree, but if you're using your own marked deck anyway, might as well take advantage of it to put the cherry on top.

The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance; it is the illusion of knowledge.

Another positive is that this can be performed over FaceTime or Skype too.

This is something I took advantage of in the early days of development Smile

Well with being able to perform this trick through facetime I think I'll have to pick it up. I've been wanting some more things that I could perform with the current situation we're in with the virus. I hope everyone is staying safe!

How sleight-heavy is this routine? Is it suitable for beginner/intermediate/advanced magicians?

But may take a little bit of practice if you've not done this particular "move" before. It's not something that is difficult to master. Just takes some practice to get a feel for it.

I agree but Michael offers a couple of other handlings which are super super simple and one I actually prefer to the main handling Gaz 🙂

Hi, I really want to purchase the download but everywhere I look it's a DVD. I live in Spain, and in the current situation it will take 2-3 weeks to get here, plus shipping will cost almost the same as the DVD. Is there anywhere I can purchase the download from? Thanks!
