Empathy By Black Hart

The Effect

Five jumbo tarot cards are handed out for inspection. As you turn your back the spectator mixes the cards several times. They hold the face down cards fanned out in their hands. One by one you tell them which card to discard (no questions, no fishing). They do not know which of the face down Tarot is the one they chose. They end up with just one card in their hand. You now turn around and ask them which one they chose. They tell you. Now they turn over the card in their hand and it is the very one they they chose (description taken from Black hart website)

Does exactly what it say's on the tin! You never peek at the cards at anytime. The size of cards make this good for stage or close-up. You receive 5 jumbo cards and the clear, easy to follow instructions. You could even put the cards in envelopes (i tried this and it worked a treat). The handling is very natural, every move seems logical and fair. Again there is no reset so great for tables. So very easy to do.

You receive the 5 ungimmicked jumbo cards and the booklet.


10/10 can't fault it really.
