The Cards Across is fine magic that has been a hit in many magicians show. However, visibility has never been its strongest point. This version has deconstructed the effect and arrived at the most visual Cards Across possible. The punch of having red cards pass into a blue packet makes this an outstanding visual piece of magic. The cards that can transfer between the two packages can even be selected by audience members in the routine if so desired. The routine plays equally well in a living room or a 2,000 seat theatre, and is the ultimate ‘packs small and plays big’ piece of magic. A timeless method to a classic effect from Billy McComb that has been reinvented and expanded by Lewin. No palming, no angle problems–just great magical entertainment for any aged audience.
There is a comprehensive DVD explaining this effect and giving ideas for its presentation but no performance video. The routine I actually use would take another entire DVD to cover! Use your own imagination to sell the ingenious methodology for this classic effect! Catch Nick’s lecture to see his personal handling. This effect comes complete with the special Bicycle cards, DVD instructions and all the other props needed for you to be able to add this effect to your show immediately. It has been closely guarded by many performers who have used it to convince audience’s of their abilities to read minds and make amazing predictions. The uses of this gimmick are numerous and limited only to the imagination of its owner.
“I put your version of “Cards Across” into my show Saturday night and it played to a big response! The routine is worry free and leaves you free to entertain. Nice.”
