The Cases of Metamorphosis by Steve Dusheck, Jim Hill(c. 1984) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The method behind this great little set of miracles is based upon Al Baker’s Cherchez la Femme. One of the effects included in the instructions makes me think it could have been inspired by the Wizzo Card Box sold by Kanter’s c. 1942 (but I have no actual evidence of this).
What I particularly like about this set is how Dusheck and Hill have included four other routines to expand from the standard switch between king and queen. Even though the standard effect is very strong, I believe Kangaroo Cards and Vanishing card are even better with a little bit more meat to the routines.
Whichever you choose to do I’m confident your audience will be amazed 🙂
Effect: Steve Dusheck and Jim Hill got together and came up with a super new close-up routine.
Two wooden card cases (3″ x 4″) are shown, each containing one card. There is a hole in the middle of each case, so the cards are visible at all times. The cards are removed from the cases one at a time to show that one case contains a King and the other a Queen. A magic pass, and INSTANTLY and VISIBLY, the CARDS CHANGE PLACE!! The change is so clean, you won’t believe it!
In addition to the basic transposition effect,the cases come with FOUR additional routines.
- KANGAROO CARDS – a double transposition – two cards from the deck plus the two cards in the cases.
- SUCKER PREDICTION- The card you show in the case visibly changes from an “incorrect prediction” to the correct one!
- VANISHING CARD – a card is selected from a deck. The card is placed into the case and INSTANTLY VANISHES. It re-appears face up back in the deck.
- TRIPLE CARD CHANGE – Using one of the cases, the card placed inside changes THREE TIMES!
Beautifully made of wood, nicely stained and finished, CASES OF METAMORPHOSIS comes complete with all the necessary cards,the gimmicks, and extensive instructions. East to do … just about self-working.
