Imagine a trick that is as powerful and exciting for the performer as it is for the spectators. An effect that truly never gets boring. An effect that adds drama and suspense to any act. Imagine an effect that can be done anywhere, anytime. An effect that can stand alone as a routine by itself.

No longer do you need to imagine. It is here and it's called Russian Roulette.

This effect was created by Alan Rorrison and has been the most requested effect we have ever released.

The Rundown:
So at this point you might be asking yourself: "Are these guys insane? Does this use a real gun with live rounds?"

No. This effect is the magician's version of the Russian roulette. It uses no guns at all. In fact it uses just the most basic of props: 3 Styrofoam cups and a big scary nail. (Other "safe" methods are taught where there is no need for a nail or any dangerous item)

The Performance
The Magician presents 3 cups and a very sharp nail. He tells the spectator that he may choose any of the 3 cups to put over the nail, and once the nail is covered he should mix the cups around so there is no way for the Magician to know where the nail might be. This happens as the Magician's back is turned.

Now, the Magician turns back around and proceeds to dramatically play "Russian roulette" smashing each cup as hard as he can. With each cup the danger grows, one mistake and he'll have a nail right through his hand. With a twist ending, the Magician ends up safe and unharmed having chosen the correct cup.

Running Time Approximately 16min

WARNING: This effect is extremely dangerous

Let me write the bottom line first: This is a great magic trick. HOWEVER, I must warn you about a few things.

Some people claim this trick is way overpriced, just like other crappy tricks. But really, this is great trick only if you know how to perform it. Just like other many other trick, performance is the key for this; magic is truly 90 percent psychology and 10 percent gimmick. Even if the principle may be basic, if you know how to present this audience will be just knocked out. By far, this created the most amount of reaction from the audience for me. Because I have performed magic for several years, they believe this is truly magical and I am risking nailing on my hand (which I am).

My advice is, if you are a novice magician, you may want to hesitate purchasing this dvd. (or maybe it's a good idea just to expand your experience) If you are too expert in magic, maybe you already know this trick or you are able to perform this without help from dvd. (or maybe you need some patter ideas..) Just like any other tricks, you may not be completely satisfied, but again, this does create huge reaction and is a great trick for close-up to stage magic.
