Reset is fast and this one is great for strolling situations.
You place a card in your pocket and it magically reappears among the cards that you are holding in your hands. You place two cards in the spectator’s hands and hold the other two cards. You tell the cards in the spectator’s hands to “vanish,” but the cards themselves don’t vanish, their values disappear and the spectator is left holding cards with backs on both sides. Furthermore, you’re left with cards that have faces on both sides.
“I know there will be concerns that the revelation of doubleback and same-both-sides face cards will expose valuable secrets to laymen. However, from the audience’s point of view, the ending is a symmetrical transposition that makes “magical” sense since it is impossible. With Mutanz, they don’t look upon the cards as the method, but as the effect.”
Alright, this is good enough for me. You’re free to agree or disagree.
Make the Count
The instructions are among the best that I’ve read for a trick and offer in-depth information and lots of pictures. I particularly like the way that the cards are clearly labeled in pictures and the instructions always take the time to tell you the order of the cards at each stage. Since the publisher performs an Elmsley Count from left to right, the pictures can be confusing at times for “lefties” like me, but the publisher adequately addresses this.
