David has been very kind in assisting me through purchasing Fortuity as I purchased directly from him however I wanted to write a review here at Alakazam as I am a frequent loyal customer to help others. He is great with communication, any problem solving - he will have your back! Fortuity.... what is Fortuity? It's a one of a kind, original mentalism orientated routine with a special deck of cards, some super cool dice and a prediction envelope made with Alakazam. The only thing I do have to agree with others reviews is that it should have come with a different box than the method... Alakazam and the other customers will know what I mean but it is no big deal, double stick tape another backer to your card case with some cellophane OR just put the deck in a different box! No biggie, minor thing that should be addressed but not overlooked. What you see is what you will be able to do! The deck is amazing and will even give you creations & inspirations to do more with as you build the way you wish to perform it. The deck alone is magnificent and the method, while not new - is genius with how it comes full circle. I give this my strongest recommendation. This is one of those kind of effects that you dont see every day & wont see in years away. Add this killer effect to your cart! You are going to love it :) - Andrew
The extra video from the originator is essential viewing. The only quibble I have is that the card case supplied has the same back as the forced back, something the audience may notice. I've changed to a Bicycle case!
This is my type of mentalism! Straight forward and packs a punch! Absolutely brilliant and practically self working which means you can concentrate on your performance. Highly Recommend Steve Dela
This is a nice trick. The cards are high quality and gimmicked very well. they are easy to maneuver. The prediction envelope and the dice chosen really do add class to the effect and stand out nicely. The trick is really well thought out and the addition of using the dice makes it fool proof. The only problem I have though is that using the dice makes it from the spectators view not exactly a free choice and limiting but the fact that they can decide if they want you to count from the top or the bottom helps eliminate that the choice is limited. The trick will always play out exactly as the trailer looks. So if you like how the effect looks in the demo you should buy it. The only other thing to keep in mind is that the force card will always be the same, so no repeat performances. You of course could always buy a couple of these decks and request that they have different force cards and you will be straight. Highly recommended.
The product is really well made , from the cards to the DVD explanation to the dice. It's a really nice routine
As always Alakazam provide a well crafted product with a very well produced DVD. Ticks all the boxes
Really nice trick, I wasnt sure looking at the product launch, do I really need another single trick gaffed deck at the moment? So glad I decided the answer was yes.
Very easy to perform. I was blown away when I saw it at Blackpool. On returning I had to buy it so glad I did. This will be used a lot!!!
I just received this trick and have to say it is probably one of the best tricks I've bought in ages. I loved the demo and just had to buy it. I couldn't wait. Such a clean effect and completely mind blowing for your spectators. Buy it now
This is a must have. The cards are beautiful and the fact that a number variables such as the introduction of the dice and the choice of selecting cards from the top or the bottom of the deck results in a high impact killer effect Its also easy to perform for the beginner
As a professional and I dealer I see a lot on the market. Just get this one. May be the best and smoothest application of great card trick in years. Thrilled to have this effect. 100% worker.
This worldwide awaken effect is just fantastic your friends will remember this For long time to come it might be better than some people may think! But i no any one who like. A nice ending for a card act! This worldwide package pet is a magician delight!
An ABSOLUTE WORKER! This one goes into the MUST HAVE, MUST USE pile. A self working piece of brilliance.
I received this today and will give it a good rating. There are a couple of small issues with the construction that aren't really covered, at least not well, in the current instructions, but nothing that would be too difficult to get around. All in all, a good trick that should play well.
I love duel match it never ceasea to get the oh my god reaction s well as some laughs. This has taken it to a new level, easy to perform and reset fantastic improvement to the original idea I love it thanks again Alakazam
What a great effect! Fried a couple friends with this one! Great use of the the colorful back designs!
Great trick and the props are excellent. Glad i opted to purchase early :)
First Impression: Oh, a variation of Lennart Greens Stolen Cards. Second Impression: what a clever combination of known methods. Alone the rainbow backs are real Eye-Catchers. Easy to perform, I love it!
Another great release by Alakazam! Instructional video is very good. Good quality props and cards. Not repeatable to the same crowd - it doesn't matter. Overall, highly recommended! Excellent reactions.
This just looks so fair for the spectator, I really love the mixture of back designs and I finally have something (that will blow minds) that I can use with the prism deck. Method is great and the handling will not be an issue but may require a little time to make it as smooth as Dave does it in the explanation. 10/10
Another great mental effect by ALAKAZAM and easy to perform both in memory and sleight of hand. A great use of the special new stuff that makes the trick work.The rainbow cards are beautiful and handle well. David Jonathan has also added some excellent bonus ideas.Well done
Good quality props and cards. You can see the effort that went into creating this. Instructional video is good. The one minor thing, as others have said, is that it is not repeatable to the same crowd. But that is true of a lot of products. Overall, highly recommended!
Works as I thought, and actually hoped, it would. Great trick, super easy to do, but practice it until it's second-nature. Only drawback is it's not repeatable for same crowd, but that's a minor issue. Some good extra tips from the creator, one will help you fool your magician friends. I'll definitely use this one. Highly recommended!
I can do this really slowly and emphasise the effect to the spectator and it gets great reactions. Easy to do, but spend some time working with the props to get a natural handling. Another great release from ALAKAZAM.
Love all the different backs to the cards and the way you have to arrive at the prediction with the rolling of the dice not once but twice seems even more random
Everything is a good quality from the gimmicks to props included, the instructional download explains all but the trick is virtually self working with no sleights or memory work its learnt in minutes. The basic routine is short and sweet but could easily be stretched to a longer presentation.
This effect looks quite impossible.to the layman. As always with Alakazam productions the propos are really nice.. If table hopping you will need to be sure no one follows you from table to table. There are lots of useful tips and handling suggestions on the download. Although sleight-free you will need to get used to the handling so it is smooth and natural. Highly recommended!
Great trick, cant wait to get one in Blackpool :-)Write Review
