The Blurb

A tossed out deck routine with a sensational finale!

The magician selects 4 spectators and tosses out a deck of cards, they select one card each and go to the stage.
On stage, each one receives one black balloon and a pin.
The magician names 4 cards and ask the spectators that if anyone hears their card, please, pop his balloon.
3 of them do it, but not the last one…
When the magician cannot find out the last card, he asks the spectator to name the card and pop the balloon anyway, when they do it…and inside the balloon, on the tip of the stick, there is the selected card.

Comes complete with: a special tricked Bicycle deck of cards, 12 black balloons, 4 sticks, pins, all the necessary gimmicks and a DVD in English and Spanish with the routine and explanations.

Jheff's Guide

WHAT IT IS:
Effect with Props

HOW ACCURATE OR COMPLETE THE BLURB IS:
It’s mostly accurate, although I will mention that one participant chooses a card and balloon before the deck is tossed out to the other three.  Also, there is some minor prep work on the balloon, but it is not difficult at all.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED THAT YOU NEED OR NEED TO KNOW:
There only enough balloons for a few performances, but the black balloons are easily available at party supplies stores and other places.

SUITABLE VENUES:
Parlour, Stage

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
This is a fun, visual version of the classic tossed-out deck.  The card in balloon doesn’t necessarily make this mental magic by the way, as the performer can claim to have known which balloon would chosen and thus placed the card inside that balloon before the start of the show.
