A Packet Trick that Actually Makes Sense!
Have you ever looked at the joker in a Bicycle deck? I mean really looked -close enough to see that the royal figure out for a ride isn’t just any royal figure; he’s the King of Spades.
Based on this observation, the effect of Bikers is crystal clear and progressively more amazing. Four jokers are slowly displayed, and then, one after the other, three of them "get off their bikes," transforming into kings as the cards are openly spread between the magician’s hands. As a climax, the last change occurs in the spectator’s hand, leaving a fully examinable card.
Legitimately using only four cards, the method allows each card to be shown front and back, and requires only basic sleight-of-hand.
Finally, like everything from Gordon Bean -including his last release, the best-selling Entourage- this is designed for the real world, not just a static video camera. No table is needed, no cards are stuck together, and the reset is automatic. As a bonus, there are multiple handlings for finishing with four examinable cards.
"Bikers is stark and clean and super-streamlined, without a solitary false or gratuitous move. A perfect trick. Just a delight to perform with an effect to match."
- J.K. Hartman.
Also included is Gordon’s last-minute creation Seven Kings, an eye-popping transposition between kings and jokers that ends with four examinable kings on the spectator's palm. Fully described in a special insert, Seven Kings is tailored for the walk-around performer, combining high impact with total reliability and instant reset. It also has the advantage of requiring no false counts, and only a bare minimum of card handling ability.
Comes complete with 10 page, photo-illustrated instruction booklet and all necessary cards custom printed by the U.S. Playing Card Company. (Cards comprising a standard Wild Card set are included.)
