The Blurb

Six cards. Two free spectator choices. One mental miracle! The name may be COUNTERFEIT but the reactions are REAL!

Counterfeit is a handling of a packet trick from the devious mind of Stephen Tucker (used with kind permission), with an adapted presentation by Daniel Meadows.

Imagine this:
6 cards are displayed bearing the pictures of some dubious sounding DVD titles
The spectator chooses a DVD for themselves
The spectator then chooses a DVD for you
Despite the spectator making both choices, you can show that they were successful in selecting the 2 cards that are different!
Was it your influence or their intuition? You decide!

Points to remember:
Easy to do!
Resets instantly!
Works every time!
No memory work!
No angle issues!
No tricky language!
Can be performed without a table!

On the accompanying DVD, Daniel Meadows runs you through everything you need to know to be able to add this to your repertoire. Minimal pocket space required; maximum spectator reaction!

NOTE: Included cards are not Bicycle backed as seen in the video demonstration.

**JHEFF’S GUIDE**

WHAT IT IS:
Effect with Props

HOW ACCURATE OR COMPLETE THE BLURB IS:
The routine is not specifically explained because the outcome is not always exactly the same.  The revelation involves a message on the backs of the cards.  The backs of the two chosen cards have a different message than the other four.  All the other points are correct.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED THAT YOU NEED OR NEED TO KNOW:
One needs to know how to do a classic card packet technique that you probably know, but, if not, the instructional DVD teaches it.

SUITABLE VENUES:
Close-up

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
Based on a Stephen Tucker effect, this is Daniel Meadows’ presentation which involves special cards with graphics of fake DVD titles on them.  Even though it is quite clever, it is clearly marketed to hobbyists and probably not something the working mentalist would want, unless this presentation suits your style.
