At the start of the routine, the performer begins by asking the audience if they're familiar with the game of Three-Card Monte. Admitting that the game is rigged, the performer offers to explain it. What follows is a roller coaster ride that the audience cannot conceivably follow, and they are left magically dazzled and bewildered. Even when removable labels are affixed to the "money card," the audience still loses!
Mo' Monte by Phil Goldstein comes complete with everything needed to perform this amazing swindle, including the special cards, special removable stickers, and complete, highly-detailed instructions.

This easy(ish) Packet Trick has many phases and climaxes but is fast and entertaining. The final kicker surprise ending is one heck of a surprise.
You end clean. Everything can be immediately examined. And, the reset is instant! It can also be performed without a table. The effect is that of a "twisting the aces" style routine but with MUCH more! Watch the video demo; it's great fun and the kicker is EYE-POPPING.
Comes complete with instructions and required cards.

A JUMBO CARD TRICK THAT IS BAFFLING EVEN TO MAGICIANS!
Four jumbo size Aces (or any other four-of-a-kind) are placed face up on the table (and only four cards are used). A spectator is asked to select any one of the cards (no force of any kind). He may mentally change his mind any number of times, but finally he must decide on one card and announce this aloud. When the cards are shown, it is seen that the designated card has a different colored back to the other three!
No sleights whatsoever are used. They are replaced by stunning subtlety.
Complete with jumbo cards and routine. No rough & smooth cards, no double-lifts, no special cards.
Another masterpiece from Kreis Magic! It looks similar to its predecessor, but a brand new version.
Spectator fastens the nut on the bolt and then the nut rotates in both forward and reverse directions. The direction is fully controllable. The reverse rotation looks almost like turning back the clock.
The M8 size bolt with an inside diameter of 5mm contains an electronic circuit which makes the nut rotate in forward and reverse directions. Kreis's surprisingly precise machining has made it feasible.
As same as the original version:
HALF is Lyndon Jugalbot's take from the classic warped card and brought it into a whole new level, where you don't need to fold the card in half but rather perform the effect openly and still the card warped.
The Phantom Deck has a great visual style making it a great addition to your playing card collection. This unique style is carried out through every element of the deck:
Two Brass Nuts appear and disappear.
Travel from side to side and from bolt to bolt.
In the end all is left for examination!
This is not only the most visual paddle effect but also has so many more possibilities as you expand your own original routines!
