Wow, you guys are very generous. Adding something that seems to be "missing" for free. Two thumbs up for MoM!

Yes Gaz, I'm sure you are right about most spectators finding the black deck ending impressive, as illogical as it is. I guess it's one of those things that makes no sense but is just so.

On one had I find it annoying for some reason that spectators are duped by something that it so obvious, but on the other hand, why should I complain if we get a free bonus in terms of the impact of an effect!


It makes it seem as though their choice at the start was more important, that's why people find it impressive.

If they were all printed you could have done something magical to change it, or change the money. If that was they only one printed they HAD to pick it.

I got this as an EXCLUSIVE from Mark's website. Glad to keep this exclusive where I exclusively purchased and that it's not available anywhere else with new instructions.

I think this is really nice. There a couple of things I would change about the wallet (appears to be a section that is not needed/used that could be removed).

Cool effect, as much as I would love a v2 which changed those bits slightly I hope there isn't a v2 since I already got this exclusively from Mark's website and if I already feel like I missed the new instructions I would really not like to feel like I was in a trial run.

It's nice, different way of thinking for a 'wallet'

Hi, I'm a novice but got sent an email by Saturn Magic about this trick. Is this okay for someone like myself to perform or do you need to learn any sleights? Also Saturn are saying that you need to get your own blank cards but on this thread I read that some companies are providing the blank cards too.

Hope someone can clarify.

Thanks

Only matter holding me back from purchasing is .... why do you need to place a chosen card in a wallet, it’s not a natural thing to do.

@Philippe - I would probably play it up as building suspense and isolating it so that the choice is cemented and cannot be changed by the spec or by sleight of hand. You want to show them the bill first and putting in the wallet is a place to keep the card without fumbling, so there is also a practical reason. I like the effect and am tempted, but I don't see myself giving up my card to wallet and wouldn't use two wallets at a gig...

Hey guys. I got this at Blackpool and have used it at several gigs. I reviewed it in the latest episode of my review show and performed a routine with it as well.

It’s a great prop and in the show I go into why it’s a great prop.

Here’s the link if you would like to watch my review.

There is a great review on YouTube by "Fiddlin Jonny " for this effect,although it looks a bit magic prop type wallet it is nevertheless a great effect and although I don't buy that much magic these days I am going to purchase this.Mark is a fellow Lancastrian from just up the road from me at Blackpool although he now resides in Florida

Anyone know how to get to the instructional video on this? The link contained in my box does not work. Very disappointing to get this but not be able to use it

Hey Lumberjohn, I just tried it and it worked fine. It is case sensitive so look at those CAPITAL letters in the address.

I don’t understand why people still create passwords using characters that can be misinterpreted as something else, such as a capital letter for a number, lower case L for a capital I, etc.
They need to program all software to not allow certain characters like that the same way they don’t allow certain characters to be used in domain names or file names.

Agreed. I tried this four times using different combinations because I wasn’t sure. I must have typo’d the right one the first time, but why be so confusing?

I realize this is an old topic, but I have a question.

I purchased one of these last week, looks like it was dropped shipped by Murphy's Magic, not directly from Mark Mason.

Has anyone had problems inserting a playing card into the wallet, both places are so tight, that I cannot get the card to go all the way in.

I can't imagine having a spectator struggle with inserting the card.

Any solutions to this problem?

Yes, so I lighty stretched it with my fingers and then forced in about 3-4 cards and let it sit overnight to stretch it out. Spec can now easily slide it in there with no issue.
