In less than a second fraction, you can produce any inscription on the back of the deck box. This amazing tool will offer many opportunities for you to customize and create your own twists for this effect.
- Introduction by the appearance of your stage name
- Disclosure of the identity of a card chosen by the spectator

How accurate is the ad copy? this is exactly what happens, no deception
What's in the box? 25 minute DVD, card box gimmick plenty of slates for your reveals (also a handout with the exact dimensions so that you can make your own)
How are the production values: lots of good angles, clean environment,
Is it well made: there is some arts and crafts on your part, but only for the revelation, the gimmicked card box comes to you prebuilt and it is very well made. But Sebastien does tell you how to make a new one should you need to.
Is it well taught: My DVD was an english dub, but that didn't hinder my experience. The trick is simple enough to "get it" right away, but Sebastien takes his time with you and that feels like you get your money's worth. That said there are no real "effects" or "routines" on this DVD. This is purely a revelation gimmick and you will need to devise your own plots.
My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked): I personally would have liked a few live performances.
Storage? Does it "pack flat?" only as big as a deck of cards
Does it "play big?" Animated drawing effects are always a crowd plesaser
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) Absolutely! Very few angle issues with this trick, but of course it can't be handed out afterward.
How original is this idea? the rising card reminded me a lot of Martin Lewis' Cardiographic
Overall score: 9/10
