I bought this trick and it's brilliant. I have a few days off work coming up and I am looking forward to practicing it. Great job.

Certainly easier and less table space needing than the classic 3 card monte. Can easily see it hit big with having the final kicker signed.

Just make sure we can get refills at reasonable prices, because I believe this deserves to be signed and left as a souvenir.

All the best

Just received mine yesterday after being away for a few days!

First thing you notice, and that no one had really mentioned yet, is that the packaging quality is top notch.

From the moment you open up your package, you will be very impressed by the quality, look, and feel of the entire experience. Dee and I are crazy about about production value, we’ve had way too many in-depth discussions about how much we love infusing quality into our productions, so it goes without saying that the video itself is on par with the packaging.

Everything is taught in detail by Alan and the routine itself is super easy to perform. I have been performing for my whole life and can pull off some fairly advanced work (if that gives you any idea of my normal skill level) and this routine feels completely doable within a day of practice to keep in my wallet ready to share.

Final verdict is that I would highly recommend this to someone looking for a fun, engaging, and all around unique performance piece that lives in your wallet.

If this is any indication of The 1914s attention to detail, product quality, and eye for choosing effects to produce, then I cannot wait for the next release!

Just ordered! Too good to pass up
I will do a shorter version that suits me. Which is great about this.

I agree with fiddlinjony. We really need to have the cards available in a deck format. NOT at all a huge deal. Just a Nice to have...

Will let you know what I think when I get these mailed next week and gave it a shot a few performances....

"The phrase “packs small, plays big” is a cliche in magic..." Boy, that's for sure! I'd be happy to NEVER hear that phrase EVER again. Interested to hear more reviews on this one, and what sleights are required. Looks pretty good, though



Not me, I LOVE to hear that especially when it's true! Definitely rather carry thinngs that take up minimal space that play big.


I like this phrase for a whole different reason: I like unusual, especially antique or antique looking props. So, while most people are obsessed with "packs flat", I frequently have very interesting props that don't really pack flat. Don't get me wrong, I also have great "packs flat" stuff, but I don't make it and obsession.

Really? It's tired and used to death!

My last post somehow ended up before the previous comment about "Really, it's tired..."

This is a great routine and packs tiny into a wallet. I have been using it for the last week whilst working and it gets great reactions everytime. I highly reccomend it

Fantastic effect.
Is there an easy way to download instructions? Much more convenient than streaming!

There will be very soon; the current site is streaming only, however, Jack has coded a fantastic new video player from scratch for the new website (and the magicvideos site if you don’t have a 1914 account but buy our products from other stores), with many new features, including downloading as many people have asked for this option.

The new site will launch in just a few short weeks. I think (and hope) everyone will be very pleasantly surprised by the new UX and learning tools we’ve built alongside some fantastic developers here in the UK.

Hope that helps!
The new website is now LIVE!

I downloaded it. In Chrome, when I opened the instructional video, there is an arrow in the top right hand corner of the video that says download and offers options for picture quality.

Sounds like you have a Chrome extension installed. I don't see that on mine, but from your description it sounds like one of the popular extensions for downloading videos.

I always use extensions to download video instructions for magic. I'll archive what I need to, thanks. 👀
