The Multiple Card Control/Revelation Routine
The ads state that the “Multiple Revelation may well be the ultimate card trick.” If it’s not the “ultimate card trick,” it’s easily among the strongest. In these routines you have between ten to fifteen spectators each select a card. After losing the cards in the deck you find them in impressive ways. The effect is not only perceived to be an amazing display of skill (it is), it’s interactive and involves lots of people in the audience. The classic and winning plot works in strolling and walkaround situations, as well as in formal close-up shows and even in stand up performances. And if you can perform a multiple card control and revelation routine, you potentially have a four of a kind effect with your choice of any four of a kind (it depends on the control that you use but you can still rely on your revelations when using a stacked deck).
The routine is strong enough to be used as a closer. It’s also an impromptu effect that can be performed with any deck, even a borrowed one. And can be “jazzed” up with you mixing and matching the revelations to suit your audience.
One last thought. The multiple card control and revelation routine is an excellent one to work on because it builds up your sleight of hand skills. After all, if you can reveal a series of selected and lost playing cards in a flashy manner, you can certainly find and reveal a single one. Working on such a routine will provide you with a multitude of reveals that you may call on at any time. Alright, enough on the background stuff. Lets talk about the DVD.
The second disc teaches some 65 ways to reveal the spectator's selected cards. There are a variety of revelations from those behind your back, to card flips, fans, cuts (including Daryl’s popular and flashy “Hot Shot,” pop-outs, tosses, a four of a kind production, sandwiches, forces, color changes, card on chair, and more. It was great to obtain names for some moves that I already perform. For example, I didn’t know that I was already performing a move by Dai Vernon called “The Chinese Deal.”
Far More Than Moves
I can’t praise “The Multiple Revelation Project” enough. This would have been the exact DVD that I would have wanted during an earlier part of my magic development. And I can thoroughly appreciate it and learn from it now. It’s gaining a top spot in my magic library and it’s one of the finest titles that I have reviewed. This one gets a rare five-star rating.
