Manufacture's Write up:
You have a card selected, signed, this then gets lost in the pack. You produce a set of four of the same cards i.e. - four Jokers. You show the backs to be all blue. One by one each joker turns face up from face down. You then place the four cards in the spectator's hand and ask them to wave their other hand over the cards. One card turns face down. You take the remaining three face up Jokers and show that they have now each turned into a different color back with the words "YOUR CARD IS" and an arrow written on the back of the cards. When the spectator turns the card in their hand, it is their signed card.
How accurate is the add copy?
Well, this effect as sold as "Your Card Is" with an extra effect "Chameleon Deception" but in truth... what comes in the box is the set up for the "Chameleon Deception" effect and it's the first effect taught on the DVD.
The title effect "Your Card Is" feels more like a climax ending you can stick onto the end of your favorite card effect using the "Chameleon Deception" cards, however to do THAT trick you'll need to write on your cards with a black sharpie marker and thus you won't be able to do "Chameleon Deception" anymore.
What's in the box?
A DVD and the needed Bicycle branded cards
This is just a variation on Gary Freed's "NFW" - which is a variation on twisting the aces. In fact Magic Tao sells this same set up of cards and effect from Gary Jones called "Shock Twist."
Is it well made:
Cards are ordinary Bicycle stock
Is it well taught:
Yes it is
How are the production values:
