Very honest with what they are offering by showing the outs. Never really been a fan of B’Wave but this looks nice and clean.

Thanks a lot for sharing this !

Since I have found the final method for this effect - I always keep it in my wallet.

I could show you an uncut performance but it is that simple : a queen is named, you spread the cards and the Queen face up (or in a blank packet) is the named card.

Also, I have made the trailer in different languages. If your favorite shop wants a translated trailer ask him to let me know !

If you have any question feel free to ask ! 😊

The demo vid looks very nice, clean & promising. Seems a lot of clever thinking has gone into creating this effect. The method looks to be new and different from what I have ever seen.

This sure looks like a miracle. Though in the demo vid the handling shown is very clean and organic; however IMO, this is certainly not possible with 4 cards. $15 retail seems quite reasonable.

For a casual performance I like B-wave kind of tricks and thus this has got me interested. I'm on the fence!

How does this differ from the original B'wave other than having 4 outs? Could you pull the card out to show the back like the original?

Since a performance is not shown, I'm left with questions. Can the cards be examined? Does the spectator make the selection before or after the envelope is introduced? Before or after the cards are shown? I would have to know these conditions before buying.

FYI - Reid Ferry has a nice cleanish examinable B-Wave on YouTube.

I guessing by the display of the cards that they cannot be examined. But that's just a guess.

I don't have this, but based on the trailers I'm fairly certain the answers to your questions are: (1) No, (2) After, (3) Before, although I would imagine either is technically possible

I think this looks nice, but the handling / method seems to mean that you can't use the more traditional multi-kicker routine – it seems you can't reveal each kicker one by one, but rather just have to turn the cards over to show the last 1-2 kickers (i.e.: different back + other cards are blank – depending on the specific out). With this handling / method, I wonder if this really is stronger than just simply having the card be turned over in the packet, without the back being different and other cards being blank.

Vanishing Inc on his website add this information:

« IMPORTANT: The trailer claims each out is 100% clean. Each one is very fair and operates in an identical manner with no weird sleight of hand moves required. But they are not clean in the sense that you can pull the card from the spread and let them examine everything. »

Hey !

I have just made a short video explaining everything : https://youtu.be/BbhT7aX59EU

If you don't want to listen to my beautiful french accent (sorry for that guys...) here are some informations regarding Eruption :

1 : The named card can't be pulled out of the set. The mechanism do not allows you this. Some methods can but you will not have the possibility to select any queen (equivoque needed) or you can't show the front and back of all the cards (due to obvious reasons).

2 : The envelop can be in the spectator's hands BEFORE he name the queen. No need to but if you want you can. There is only ONE ENVELOP which is completely examinable (it only allows you to introduce the effect). If you want you can even have your cards in your hands without the envelop.

3 : All the 4 way outs are PERFECT outs. By this I mean that there is not one better than another. The only difference will be the way to reveal the card. But in all the cases, the card will be revealed in between the other cards in the small packet.

If you have any other questions please feel free to ask and I'll do my best to reply here in the comments !

Thank you for your trust and interest regarding ERUPTION !

This is my feeling as well.
The original utilized the power of 3. It was a 3 phase routine.
Selected card is reversed, has a different back, other cards are blank.
Each reveal builds upon the previous one and the last 2 are surprises that the spec doesn’t see coming.

This method combines the second and third reveals as they are both revealed at the same time. This kind of muddles the climax IMO. It requires you to make two statements before the reveal which although not bad could be a bit confusing to the spec and loses the one-two punch surprise of the original.

I think I would prefer this version to eliminate the different colored back and just show the other cards to be blank. I presume this is not possible with the gimmicks supplied and if not perhaps make that version available in the future.

Could it be the same special card as David Regal's Pure Filth? as it can be done like that with it. and a certain card made just a little different?,those that know the Pack card trick I mentioned, will know.

The big selling point is no equivoke needed. I have seen this happen to another Magician at a convention. He used equivoke, but the spectator cut him off and said, no I want to use the black queens. Rare, but there is always the possibility.

I believe if anyone is familiar with Dean Dills out of this world you will understand at least the way part of this works. It seems to be a very well-thought-out routine and will definitely fly right by a non magician spectator. And for the price you cannot beat this!

Good magic to all,

Since the blank faces are revealed at the same time as the different coloured back, I would say it might be better to just have them all be blue-backed cards. Because if all the other cards are blank, it's redundant that the named queen has a different coloured back. If anything, it just makes it a bit more confusing because there are now two things to think about during the kicker, rather than just one simple thing - all the other queens are blank.

I don't know if that would be possible with this particular effect. It would all depend on what card was chosen if I'm thinking correctly on this.

I agree as I had stated in an earlier post, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the creator of this probably felt the same way. But I think the goal of this project was to market it as a version of B’wave so it may have been decided that it was better to leave the odd backed card in to better emulate the original. Of course if they had omitted the odd back then people would complain that it’s not like B’wave, where’s the odd backed card, etc.
So you’re darned if you do and darned if you don’t.

I believe it's more a case of what Eric is alluding to - that not all outs end up with showing blank faces, or that all the cards would be red apart from one blue, etc, so the odd backed card would be necessary.

Hey there !

It's hard to say more without revealing the entire mechanism BUT if you want to use an equivoque with the ERUPTION's set, you can change the color of the back of the named card.

For example, let say you want to force or the QS or the QC (one of the black queens). If you force one of these cards, you can reveal that the card is face up and when you turn the cards - all the 3 others are blank and the named card still has a blue back.

I hope it makes sense, otherwise I'll make a video to show you ! Smile
