Prestige by Hide Magic

https://www.alakazam.co.uk/prestige-by-hide-magic.html

Anyone know who will be carrying this in the US? Shipping to the US from the UK is a nightmare right now, takes forever, if it doesn't get lost. Looks like a fun routine, and the vanish of the numbers at the end surprised me.

Other than the Bank Night effect, what does this do?

Tom Stone is not the original creator of this plot. It might go even further back but I'm pretty sure Andy Nyman started this whole concept with 'Diceman'.

I will probably receive this in the next days and can write a few words about it later this week.

Stevens magic will sell it in US. No any force at all, very good quality! As additional effect you can to vanish one number at chosen card or on all cards except chosen.

I have it, it's very well made and you can repair it if needed. It's a bit expensive but if you're going to use it (which I think I am), you will be glad to have this in your repertoire!

It's customizable but once it's written on, you can't change it. I have my own version of this trick which works on a different principle but I must say this one works very good.

I'll publish a review on it in a few weeks Smile

That’s actually the part I don’t like. It looks very good, but it completely takes away the “how could he predict my choice” effect for laymen. They will just think: ah, smth is up with those cards. And the fact you can’t hand those out for inspection is the anticlimax. Two great separate effects, but a very unhappy marriage of mentalism and magic I would say.

Do you normally hand out suspicious props or routine around what might be obvious?

Do you prefer asking rhetorical questions to an open discussion? 😉

Do you have reason to believe that rhetorical questions aren't a legitimate form of argumentation? Smile

This is just an expensive way to solve a problem that doesn't exist.

Just force the number. No one notices or cares.

Not wanting to argue. Just asking the question. if something looks suspicious do you hand it out? Do you hand out props?

Oh, ok. Sorry, my bad. I do hand out props. Especially if the explanation seems to be that the prop is gaffed when it really isn’t.

Fully agree

I guess you don't have to make the numbers disappear though...

The number disparition is like a bonus idea which doesn’t make sense for me, the basic effect is strong enough and to the point.

Fortunately, you don’t have to make them disappear Smile
