Flash Forward is a new take on the very popular Svengali Deck, but its use of picture cards completely disarms any spectators that might be in the "know" about the secret. Because of its innocuous appearance they amazingly never even suspect that the deck could be gimmicked!
You display a deck of "alphabet" picture cards. These are very common flash-type cards that are used to teach children their colors, math, language skills, etc., and you explain this is just like the deck you were taught with when you were in school. You flip through the cards and show that they are all different. After turning your head away, you flip the cards again and have a spectator stop you at any point, and remove and memorize a card. You instantly know the image on the card, and in a series of humorous phases you make the card reappear at will. In the smash climax, you flip through the cards to show that they all have the chosen image on them, and then immediately show that they have all returned to normal again!
Flash Forward is a new take on the very popular "Svengali Deck". The fact that the deck contains "picture" cards completely disarms any spectators that might be in the "know" about the secret. Because of its innocuous appearance they amazingly never even suspect that the deck could be gimmicked!
Comes with gimmicked deck, ungimmicked duplicate deck (to hand out for examination), instructions and full routine.
Some key points to remember:
- The cards are oversized and while they work very well for close-up situations, they can also easily be seen from a distance--great for kids' parties!
- Perfect for mentalists who are looking for an innocent looking way to force an image.
- Great to entertain children who are not familiar with the values and suits of a regular deck of cards.
- Includes a routine that has been used in countless performances and completely blows away adults in close-up situations!
