X-Deck by David Forrest(c. 2004) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Just when you think you’ve seen all the trick decks out there, along comes X-Deck! This is almost a total home run. It is a very clean way to show that you had predicted what card they would mentally think of from all 52 cards in the deck. They can think of any one and you show that you had marked it with an X and with an alternate back.
It is better and easier to use than the Brainwave Deck because you can freely show the backs and fronts of the deck. However, the only problem I have with it is that they have made the deck look pretty obviously prearranged by the choice of cards that you can see when you fan the deck. With a little thought and some simple calculations I’m sure there is a better way. I’m going to play with a deck myself to see. Once you remove this slightly annoying limitation then you truly do have a great idea that is simpler, faster and cleaner than Brainwave and then something that you will just start using all over the place!
Effect: The ‘X-Deck’ is a stunning piece of mentalism, allowing the performer to predict any thought of card with 100% accuracy!
Packing the same massive punch as ‘Invisible Deck’ or ‘Brainwave Deck’, the ‘X-Deck’ is much easier to do, allows for a fairer handling of the deck and also allows the spectators to see both the backs and the faces of all the cards.
The bottom line is, no matter what card is thought of, you show that you drew a large ‘X’ on it prior to the performance. There is no force or equivoque and it works every single time without fail!
With the ‘X-Deck’, reactions are as you would expect, Through The Roof!
