If you like Derren Brown, then you will love this. I purchased this and I have already performed it twice I'd like to use it in conjunction with the dice the 3 dice. this is an awesome effect and it is mind blowing straight forward and easy to do!
Brilliant,Simple,Direct,Concentrate on the presentation, you will Smile when you learn the Secret.
Swindle arrived this morning. I can’t believe something so simple can pack such a huge impact. Blows your mind. Fantastic and the biggest surprise of all is the price.
for this price there is little better than this. Love Peters added extended patter and take on this as well. Thumbs up from me.
This is a completely self-working and extremely clever piece of mentalism, Steve Cook is a freaking genius. You can perform 'Swindle' Close-up and it would also play massively on a stage, so it ticks all the right boxes for both the hobbyist magician and the professional. As you can tell, I absolutely love it! Gary Jones.
This is a great little effect with endless possibilities for the outcome. It can be tied in with other effects such as card reveals etc etc... The possibilities are endless. A 10/10 product easily 5stars and excellent value too. You won't be disappointed
If you haven't already bought this BUY IT NOW! Best £15 you will ever spend, your audiences will love it, so simple to perform and it is Covid -19 safe as your spectators do not have to touch anything should you wish. Five stars.
Steve... WOW....just WOW, Swindle just dropped through my letter box. The effect is absolutely brilliant, I had no idea of the method, After less than 10 minutes into the tutorial, I am sat here with an extremely wide smile on my face. So ingenious.. I love it. Another excellent effect. Thanks so much.
This is a, superb mental trick. The quality of the boxes makes this look so cool. The use of manipulative language makes the customer try and second guess themselves using reverse psychology but no matter what they do they will end up with the box without the treasure. A lovely little trick. I highly recommend this. Well done Steve Cook and Alakazam.
This is a super simple mentalism effect. But don't let that put that off. The method can be used in other formats. Which I have got plans for already.
This is a great little routine, its everything it says on the tin. packs small but can play big... its a cheeky little routine that will get them ! I love routines that are so simple but makes you think if I do this / say that then I can instantly use it in my set. if you cant think of anything the routine from Peter and H is easy to follow and guaranteed to get people asking to show them again. great stuff for the money.
Like others above, for its price you just have to purchase this little gem. So easy and quick to learn, but everyone I have performed it for is taken in completely. Peter's tuition is superb and after learning the secret it allows you to concentrate on the performance. It is a real fooler and fun to do.
I am quite picky and choosy when it comes to effects I want to add to my sets, this is something I will most certainly add, a very simple effect to follow and a great opener to a table, very highly recommended
I love Steve Cook's products. I have bought many of them from Alakazam. His simple but strong methods and routines really appeal to me and make them a joy to perform. Swindle is a great trick. Thank you Steve, and thumbs up to Alakazam for putting out his stuff with not only his routines but great ones of their own. Top class
This is the sort of mentalism I like. Simple, straightforward but also very entertaining. I also like the way you can tailor it to your audience and style - it is versatile and offers much potential. In addition, with current performing restrictions, it could be presented online or with you touching and opening the boxes in line with the spectator's instructions. Highly recommended - well done Steve and Alakazam.
Swindle is a great trick on all levels Just received it and Steve Cook and Alakazam have delivered something so good and easy to perform as long as you script the routine to suit your style Great price and a great trick
Don't assume that simple/easy to do means that it lacks the wow factor. For £15 you get something that IS very quick to learn, and which opens the doors wide for you to let your performance shine. On many Alakazam broadcasts/tutorials, I've heard about how the effect is only part of magic, the rest is about you and your performance. This is something that pretty much anyone of any level can learn to do quickly, and then it all becomes about making it your own. Once you understand how it works, you will be able to turn all your focus onto your performance with complete confidence. I almost feel like we are swindling Steve Cook by paying so little for it! It is superb.
I too could not decide what to about this, in the end I purchased because it was Alakazam. It is VERY simple but impressive. As a quick opening illustration of what is to follow it is great. Without giving anything away my preference is for the 'clean' finish. Recommended !!
I watched the trailer pretty much straight away and again several times after. I couldn't decide whether to buy it or not. It was one of those moments when it looks so simple but you're sure there's more to it. Anyhow, I decided to buy it. Without giving anything away, it is simple. You'll be performing it within a short space of time. The outcome could be anything too. I'm pleased I bought it. It's not expensive either and it's easy to carry around. It could also lead you into other effects. I recommend it for sure. For just shy of £15 you can't go wrong really.
Sinfully simple, devilishly direct and fiendishly fooling! Buy it! Nuff said!
Aftr seeing the advert for Swindle by Steve Cook. I really had to buy! I’m glad I did. I haven’t received it yet obviously but I did get Peter and Harry explaining it in my streaming videos! What a beautiful little effect! This has got to be the best effect I have ever bought at under £15! It is really hard to review this without giving away secrets so it’ll have to be a seven word review. “Just Buy It. You will love it!”Write Review
