Rick Lax is really giving Paul Harris a run for his money as the greatest living magic trick inventor. Over the past few years I've purchased a number of Rick's effects (at incredibly reasonable prices!) and have yet to be disappointed. The thing I love about Rick, and Paul Harris as well, is that they are less concerned about the method and more about the emotional connection with the spectator. It's powerful stuff.
Any knowledgeable magician should be able to figure out this trick's basic method by watching the trailer but it is worth the price for the wonderful subtleties that Rick has clearly spent a long time honing, let alone the beautiful Tarot Deck that comes with the purchase. He's thought of everything, from setup, to a clever "cheat sheet" for the Tarot read, to a very fast reset that can be done in front of the spectators. Just top notch.
The one caveat I would give, and this is no criticism of the effect, is that I would make sure to only use positive interpretations when doing the Tarot reading. I've preformed Paul Harris' "Dr. Fun", which is similar to this in that the reaction of the spectator can be surprisingly emotional and learned early on not to go "negative"-no dead relatives, pets, etc. Keep it all upbeat.
Just a great effect. Simple, easy, effective. Well done, Mr. Lax!
