Bring Me the Head of a Packet Trick with DVD by Mark Elsdon

Click here to watch a demo video performance!!

Building on the work of Hamman, Harris, Racherbaumer, Close and others, Mark Elsdon has developed the most commercial handling of "Re-Set" released to date.

Four red backed cards change places with four blue backed cards one at a time, and then instantly "Re-Set" back to being reds.

The Blue cards are examined and are now found to have Green Backs and when the red packet is checked again the blacks have vanished leaving four blank backed cards! All eight cards may now be examined!!

If you enjoy performing magic that simply devastates laymen, then you really should be performing this routine.

Complete with all the cards and an instructional DVD.

I love packet tricks. I own darn near a hundred of them from over the years probably. I'm not sure if there really is a better one to do. This one has it all.

You have cards transposing, cards that color change and finally cards that go blank and all of this happens so unexpectedly the spectator never see's it coming, it seams totally impossible. the other great thing about this trick is it's not terribly difficult to pull off.

If you are not super experienced it will take practice and confidence to perform for somebody but it is worth the time. It does require multiple types of counts which is great because if you practice this one trick it will make all of your card magic better. All of the sleights and counts used are essential for any card magician.

The only thing I would modify is the count he teaches at the beginning. It is a nice count to learn but I don't believe it is the best for this trick because the two counts that follow it look more like ham counts anyway so using a ham count to start makes things a little more uniform but that's just me being nit picky.

Also it may be fun to swap out the green cards that come with the trick for for cards with all different colored backs to have a rainbow or maybe write something on the backs of the cards. Just an extra idea.

If you like packet tricks and want to befuddle your spectators completely or just want something fun to help you practice card magic this is perfect. GET IT!

Great routine and some good ideas on the video. Probably best for intermediate card workers as one sleight is hard to pull off convincingly if new to cards.

That's a great little routine! When I first saw the explanations for that one I said man, that one is complicated! The guy in the explanations goes kinda fast. But after just 15 minutes or so of making rewind-play-pause, rewind-play-pause, I got the routine right. Now I'm not saying your gonna be able to perform that one in minutes cause I still need practice, but it's not that hard to learn the moves.

Now your angle proof with that one so you can be surrounded. Visually, it's an awesome effect. And yes, the spectator can really examine everything in front of him at the end. Great packet trick!
