Easy to perform
Self-working (the gaff deck does everything for you)
How accurate is the ad copy? I will make two corrections - the add copy says NO DO IT YOURSELF, but you will need to supply your own deck of cards and card box. You don't need to glue or tape anything, but it does not come complete and ready to go in the box. Also the add copy says "self-working" but as it's a card trick - there are "moves" involved.
What's in the box? All the "gaffs" needed to add to your normal blue backed deck. A deck of Blue Maiden backs would be the best to "match" the gaffs. Yes you could use blue rider backs, but it wont be an exact match.
Key points: Very easy to do, and the "kicker" of the color change make this an incredibly fun triumph effect.
How are the production values: single steady shot of performer sitting at a table. No live performances, no audio teaching all done by text on screen.
Is it well made: gaffs are Bicycle made
Is it well taught: barely 7 minutes of teaching, so it's super stripped down. No extras given at all. Teaching is all done through on screen text. Several of the "sentences" having spelling errors not to mention also that a few times in the teaching the "teacher" flashes.
My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked): this effect is a "one hit wonder" meaning you can only do this one trick with the cards, also when the effect is over the deck is not examinable.
Storage? Does it "pack flat?" it's only a deck of cards, nothing more or less
Does it "play big?" great triumph effect, one of my favorites
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) absolutely, you just need a table or performance surface
Overall score: 9/10
