The Effect

The spectator is asked to THINK of ANY card, NOT the SUIT just the VALUE.
Lets assume they are thinking of a 4.
Next they are asked to mix the four aces, these are laid out in a row.
Each ace represents each suit, they select any one of the four aces NO FORCE etc.
They pick just one ace and that card is used. Lets say they pick hearts.


In a fair manner they 've selected the 4 of hearts.
The SAME deck is spread across the table, face up in the deck there is one card and one card only. It is the 4 OF HEARTS!
The 4 is removed and flipped over it is the ONLY card with a BLUE back in the RED deck!

Review

Comes with DVD instructions. mine was on blue back bikes. you can be up and doing it within minutes if not seconds of opening it. there are a couple of differences between the ID or Brainwave, finding the desired card is pretty quick and the spread reveal of the chosen card which is made very easy and is quite a nice effect. this is really what the differences in the deck are all for, so if you already have a brainwave all you'll be getting extra is the easy spread reveal. as with most things repeating is not a good idea, and i wouldn't, but you could probably get away with it.
1 trick pony.

Overall
8/10 not bad.
