The Blurb

Based on a principle by Pavel. Easy to do! Even with only one loser card; the spectator will never win.

Pavel was a great magician and creator. Here are only a few of his awards:

1968. Best Trick Award, Academy of Magical Arts, Hollywood
1982. 1st Prize Invention, FISM Lausanne

WHAT IT IS:
Effect with Props

HOW ACCURATE OR COMPLETE THE BLURB IS:
It makes a great point to let you know about Pavel and that the effect is based on his principle, but it makes no mention of the effect itself.  Simply, you have a ribbon of cards which have been connected together by laminate and that can be accordion folded.  The row of cards is held vertically with the faces showning and a clip is placed on the top card.  The clip is moved down the cards until the participant says stop.  The cards are turned around and every card says “YES” on the back except for the clipped card which says “NO.”

SUITABLE VENUES:
Parlour

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
This is a nicely made, mental magic effect.  I don’t think it’s the most powerful effect a mentalist can do, but it’s easy-to-do, easy for participants to understand, and direct.
