Bikers by Gordon Bean(c. 2008) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Effect: Have you ever looked at the joker in a Bicycle deck? I mean really looked—close enough to see that the royal figure out for a ride isn’t just any royal figure; he’s the King of Spades.
Bikers is based on just such an observation, producing a packet effect with an unusually logical premise: the riders from four jokers dismount and transform into four full-sized kings.
Legitimately using only four cards, the effect is crystal clear and progressively more amazing. The first three changes are instant and visual, with each new King of Spades “popping” into view as the cards are openly spread between the magician’s hands. As a climax, the last change occurs in the spectator’s hand, leaving a fully examinable card.
The method, meanwhile, follows an easy-to-remember-sequence, allowing each card to be shown front and back, and requiring only basic sleight-of-hand.
Finally, like all releases from Gordon Bean, this is designed for the real world. No table is needed, no cards are stuck together, and the reset is automatic. As a bonus, there are multiple handlings for ending with four examinable cards.
Comes complete with all necessary cards custom printed by the U.S. Playing Card Company.
