Power Of The Tarot - Black Hart

Postby Stephen Ward » Jan 23rd, '07, 10:50



The Effect

Two packets of 12 tarot tarot cards are placed face down on the table. As the cards are turned face up it can be seen that the pairs do not match and they are in a different order. One pile is selected by the spectator and it is mixed by dealing and reversing some cards. Ther spectator has a free choice each time. When the cards are now turned face up it can be seen that each pile matches exactly.

Cost

£8.00 from www.blackhart.co.uk



Difficulty
(1=easy to do, 2=No sleights, but not so easy, 3=Some sleights used,
4=Advanced sleights used, 5=Suitable for experienced magicians only)

Review

I always liked this principle and to see it applied to a bizarre setting is a nice thing to see. You get the tarot cards and the handling / script. The script is very good, is easy to learn and can quickly be adapted to suit your own style. This really does not require any skill to perform, all you need to do is give a solid, confident presentation. The reset can be done in a second and you could even do it right in front of the spectators. You will be able to perform this effect within a few moments of reading the instructions.



Overall

9/10
