The ace of spades served a famous purpose during the war in Vietnam. The US troops believed Vietnamese traditions held the symbolism of the spade to mean death and ill fortune. This belief in influenced US troops to use the ace of spades as a psychological weapon against the Viet Cong or National Liberation Front (NLF).
In February 1966, two lieutenants of Company "C", Second Battalion, 35th Regiment, 25th Infantry Division, wrote The United States Playing Card Company and requested decks containing nothing but the Bicycle ace of spades. In an attempt top scare away the Viet Cong/(NLF), it was common practice to leave an ace of spades on the bodies of slain Vietnamese soldiers or to spread on the ground and fields. War movies have also been bade showing US soldiers with the Bicycle ace of spades sticking out of their helmets.
The Bicycle Secret Weapon deck was reprinted during Operation Desert Shield. This time the decks were printed as a war-time tradition more than a psychological weapon.
"I really enjoyed all of these routines! Very nice. The White House is especially cool!" Cameron Francis
"You have some very nice thinking in these variations." Peter Duffie
In the words of Stephen Tucker...
As one of Martin Breese's customers I recently received a newsletter from him that drew my attention to a routine of Peter Duffie's called IDEAL HOLMES. It's a really great self-working routine, and this is what happens...
A regular deck of cards is shuffled and then cut by someone a couple of times. You take back the cards and spread them between your hands and have one FREELY selected by someone. He places the card directly into his pocket without looking at it. You turn to someone else and say, "You will now discover the secret identity of the hidden card, first the suit and then the value. However, you will need some help to do this, so let's call upon the greatest detective of all time, Mr. Sherlock Holmes.
He will first help you to identify the suit." You hand the deck to him and ask him to spell the name S-H-E-R-L-O-C-K by dealing one card for each letter in the name into a face down pile on the table. You turn over the top card of the tabled pile to indicate the suit. Next, you say, "Okay, so that's the suit taken care of, but the value is much more difficult... even for Mr. Holmes. I think that, this time, we will need to use a little 'magic'."
You now ask him to spell the word M-A-G-I-C in the same manner as before, but dealing into a separate pile. You turn over the top card of this pile to indicate the value. You finally announce both the value and suit together - thus completing the name of the card then ask the first person to remove the card from his pocket. It will prove to be that very card!
Well, this set my brain cell(s) into action and I have come up with four terrific (modest eh?) routines of my own, that I know you're just going to love. Plus, Peter has very kindly allowed me to include his IDEAL HOLMES routine... making FIVE.
And best of all - they are ALL self-working miracles!
The Sherlock Holmes theme is very topical at the moment, after the BBC's recent TV series (now on DVD) and the film starring Robert Downey Junior.

Perform the multiple revelation routine with NO SLEIGHT OF HAND. A self working miracle. Comes with a special deck in Bicycle stock.
Have from 3 to 15 members of your audience select cards, mix them up and return them to the deck - WITHOUT BEING CONTROLLED BY YOU! And yet impossibly you are ready to reveal all the selections IN ORDER, WITH NO SLEIGHT OF HAND,!!! You read that right - no sleight of hand.
Perform at a dinner party... at a show... in the pub... at school... during a trade show - ANYWHERE you have a group of people who want to be blown away by a fantastic piece of magic!
There is a reason so many world class magicians perform the Multiple Selection routine - it involves your entire audience... It ramps up the eye boggling impossibility... and it plays as a show stopping EVENT. But it's not an easy piece of magic. It requires a great deal of skill, some faultless sleight of hand and plenty of confidence to perform.
Well, it DID. Now magical brainbox Liam Montier has taken the properties of a certain gaffed deck and with some genius routining he has created a sleight-free, mindblowing performance piece that will fry your audience and leave you looking like a master magician.
What makes the MRD Deck and routine so special is that you do not have to control the cards as they are returned to the deck!!! Your spectators can all freely pick cards, shuffle them up between themselves and then return them to the pack. And you do not need to control a thing because Liam's diabolical thinking will have left you ready to reveal ALL of the selections IN ORDER, with no sleight of hand. No tricky side steals, no top palms and no (god forbid) passes to get those selections where you need them.
Whilst this is a cast iron reputation making miracle for beginners or those uncomfortable with sleight of hand, it also has some mega advantages for the ultra capable knucklebusting card sharps out there too! It has the cleanest, most impossible selection phase imaginable.
Liam Montier teaches a full routine for 6 cards being selected, but also shows you how to 'jazz' for further spectators. You can use ANY reveals you already have in your arsenal, or learn some of the bonus ones Liam teaches on the DVD.
The hand crafted MRD Deck is provided inside the DVD case, and is manufactured from a standard USPCC Bicycle Deck (blue).
A new concept to realize the Linking card effect with no manipulation!
Imagine you have a deck of 52 cards and show them to the audience.
You take a card, you fold it in half and remove the center.
Sign your initials on the front of the card.
You invite the spectator to repeat the same steps with a freely selected card in the deck!
So, you have 2 cards with a hole in the center.
You take these cards and with no sleight the cards are linked!
THE CARDS ARE REALLY LINKED! ITS NOT AN ILLUSION!
You then perform the steps in reverse to return the cards whole with the initials on same chosen cards! You can give the cards out to the spectators for examination and even let them keep them as a souvenir!
Contents : Gimmick may vary in Bicycle red or blue back. DVD in English and French!
Materials for re-manufacturing the gimmick is included and you can make this little miracle with any of your playing cards deck.
