I've bought and enjoyed a lot of Alakazam product, but this is really ruined by the waffling, over-long, poorly planned tutorial video. I miss the days when people had to be concise with tutorials because everything was written down. I almost gave up as it felt more like a rambling chat than a tutorial.
What a brilliant trick, well worth the money and the tuition and explanation from Peter Nardi and is excellent and he covers everything you need to know, This is mind blowing stuff which is the spectator will find it hard to get there head around Well done Alakazam magic for producing a brilliant trick.
This really is an excellent trick, and because the cards are in colour the trick can be part of a great routine with black and white ESP tricks first. I love the fact that the ending can be changed at the last minute if you don't want a particular outcome, and the trick is a real baffler to a spectator. Great stuff!
I am so glad I purchased this one! What a perfect effect! I love ESP effects and this one will nicely add into my ESP collection / performance. The cards are beautiful. Perfect! Thank you!
Wow, Zener Match is fantastic & the cards look realistically old. This is so, so easy to perform, you have nothinto think about. Which gives you time to concentrate on you performance. Infact the spectator does most of the work. One of my best buys.
I love ESP routines and this one is rather special. Beautifully crafted cards that lend themselves to creating a story about how you found them in a jumble sale and they belonged to a retired CIA agent [you get the idea] and then the effect itself. All I'll say is that the Colour Match brought the house down on one of my Zoom shows!
Wow - a wonderful Magic Trick! It convinced me and I introduce it immediately in my show tonight.
Great new take on the ESP Matching effect. Using a simple method not usually used in these types of routine, that means the climax the spectator witnesses is guaranteed to hit hard with no way to back track. Mick Wilson's idea adds one of my favourite procedures to make it seem as fair as it possibly can be yet it still comes to a matching conclusion that can only seem inevitable. The aged cards look great, the props you receive as well as useful for this specific routine can be used to do other ESP effects as a lead in to this hard hitting climax. Nikolas has another winner here and if you love ESP matching routines you need to pick this up!
If you like ESP matching affects you should add this to your repertoire. It uses a different method to the usual and when you come to the pay off, you are so far ahead, that you can really sell a very clean reveal. The props are excellent and intriguing with some lovely aged looking Zenner cards.
Having given the Zener Cards a few performances my only comment is WOW! Have had great reactions from slightly blase family and friends and I agree with Jamie Daws that this is the best ESP effect ever. Peter Nardi's tuition is clear and concise and he deserves a big thank you for the alternative presentation which is awesome. A great effect from Nikolas Maversis and Alakazam. Alan White
I have seen a few ESP effects some of which are very good, I would say that this particular effect as one of the best I have seen and provides an accurate and moreover a very flexible method of presentation. Well worth closer examination. Zero failure rate!
ESP cards match up effects are pretty standard - that is the magician predicts the order of five ESP cards before the spectator lays down their cards. This takes the concept up to the next level (and beyond). Each symbol on the cards is a specific colour so now you can match the colours. Or you can predict in advance the order using the box design. Or predict in advance the order as shown on a photograph card. Or you can of course have a perfect match as usual. The method is ingenious and leaves you with a number of presentational paths to follow. There is a little memorisation work to do but this is so minimal that it is not an issue. Furthermore this is done well before the actual effect starts so there is no pressure - it is just part of your opening comments and patter. The cards are beautifully made with an aged appearance and are of very good quality. The video instruction is about 40 minutes long with Peter Nardi describing everything in exact detail so you will have no problems following along. Also it appears that further videos will be added at a later date as is usual with Alakazam. An excellent release - highly recommended.
Firstly i need to apoligise to Mark elsdon as zennertech has to retire now to make way for zenner cards on performance enhancing drugs, im upset i didnt think of this before now , if you like story telling and connecting with the mugels-victims- audience what ever you call them then this is the esp to perform, the aged cards are brilliant and allows more mystery beautiful for building rapport at the start of a mentalist show to experiment with connection as you have extra sets of cards to pass out you could have a few play and pick and choose any one of the participants to use as everyone of them will be correct using the selection of outs this idea will make sense when you study the genius of this beauty, Warning ....only buy this if you want to be performing world class material .Dj.
I hate ESP tests. There I said it. I used to hate girls at school. Things change. Decided to give this a go. Okay, what just happened? Finally an ESP test that got me excited. You have the ability to thread so much story/plot around this. Zoom Compatible. No touchy the cards in this C-19 world. The effect is stunning. Take a bow Mr. Maversis. You sir are brilliant. If there was an air bridge I'd fly over to Cyprus and buy you a Zivania. Now one other honourable mention goes to Mr. Mick Wilson. His addition makes this effect un...damn...believable!!!! If you can''t tell from my review I quite like it.Write Review
