A LONG TIME AGO

IN A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY...

Since 1977, Star Wars has been a pop culture phenomenon. Alongside the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the 9th and final film in the Skywalker saga, theory11 is proud to present Star Wars: Light Side and Dark Side Playing Cards. *Sold Separately*

THE LIGHT SIDE

Join Jedi Knights, climb aboard the Millennium Falcon, and become a Rebel or Resistance hero. The Light Side deck features Luke Skywalker's light saber, R2-D2, and fighters from the Rebel fleet.
"May the Force be with you."

The Box

EMBOSSED AND FOIL STAMPED
The outer packaging is breathtaking, with striking, vibrant blue foil - mixed with clear, reflective foil that creates the illusion of the Millennium Falcon cockpit window.

Inside The Blue Box

ALL CUSTOM COURT CARDS
Both decks have the same set of 12 court cards, with iconic Light Side and Dark Side characters. Each card features detailed depictions of these iconic characters. On the Light Side: Rey, Leia Organa, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and more.

About The Cards

MADE IN AMERICA
The cards themselves are made in the USA - printed on FSC-certified paper derived from sustainable forests, vegetable-based inks, and starch-based laminates.

The Back Design

LOADED WITH LIGHT SIDE DETAILS
Across the blue back design, catch countless details - from the top of R2-D2 to the Rebel Alliance symbol. In the center, a repeating pattern of X-wing star fighters supports two light sabers on each side edge.

VERSUS

THE DARK SIDE

Channel your inner Sith, join the First Order, or maintain order in the galaxy alongside Emperor Palpatine's Imperial Army. The Dark Side deck features Darth Vader's light saber, the Death Star, and the Empire's fleet of starships. "You don't know the power of the Dark Side!"

The Dark Side Box

EMBOSSED AND FOIL STAMPED
On the front of the Dark Side box, look through the window of the Imperial Throne Room, with symbols of the Galactic Empire and First Order on each corner.

Court the Dark Side

THE DARK SIDE OF THE FORCE
Both decks feature the same set of 12 court cards, representing each side. On the Dark Side, Palpatine is depicted alongside Kylo Ren, Darth Vader, and more.

Darth Vader

THE KING OF SPADES
On the King of Spades, Darth Vader is depicted holding his light saber while taking command of his Imperial subordinates. "I find your lack of faith disturbing."

Inside the Design

THE DARK SIDE
Across the red back design, it's all about the details - from the Death Star to the First Order, Sith, and Empire insignia. In the center, a repeating pattern of TIE fighters supports Darth Vader's light saber on either side.

๐Ÿ˜ Tenyo 4D Cross 2020 ๐Ÿ˜
by Robbins starting at $22.00

An impossible penetration!

Two solid and identical sticks penetrate each other inside a snugly-fitting cross shaped tube! Audiences can stare at this impossibility from inches away, and will still be left doubting their own eyes. A precision gimmick enables you to perform this first-rate mystery.

1. Display two sticks, and insert one inside the cross shaped tube. Allow your spectator to peek inside to confirm that the stick completely fills the tube, leaving no extraneous gaps or openings.

2. Insert the other stick into the tube, and... with no resistance at all, it passes directly through the first stick! The two sticks occupy the exact same space.

3. Remove the sticks and allow your spectator to touch them at the spots where they penetrated. There is nothing to see, feel, or find!

You can also penetrate pencils, etc. through each other!

๐Ÿ˜ Visualies Gaff System (Gimmicks and Online Instructions) By Mechanic Industries ๐Ÿ˜
by Murphys Magic starting at $35.00

With its cutting-edge visual illusions and capabilities, the Visualies Gaff System is set to completely revolutionize card magic. Picking up where the Optricks Red Deck left off, this deck of cards unlocks unfathomable potential for gaff cards.

And, letโ€™s just get this out of the way at the start, these are not gaffs that youโ€™re going to use for Instagram and then immediately put back in your drawer. The Visualies Gaff System offers the opportunity for magicians to showcase truly innovative and visual card magic in ANY performing scenario.

It is ready to go from the second you take it out of the card box. Which, did we mention, looks like itโ€™s empty at first thanks to a clever gaff. Use the Visualies Gaff System on itโ€™s own or combine it with the Optricks Red Deck. The only limit is your imagination.

Each deck includes access to an in-depth, high-definition instructional video that shows you the more than 15 distinct capabilities of the Visualies Gaff System. Youโ€™ll learn both basic and advanced handlings and uncover how certain elements can be chained together to create a truly powerful card magic routine.

Perform visual miracles such as:

* Opening your card magic set by producing a full deck of cards from a clearly empty card box.
* Animating your Ambitious Card routine by having a card visually rise out of the deck.
* Jay Sankeyโ€™s โ€œIn a Flashโ€ without drilling through a deck of cards.
* Making the deck transparent, placing it over a real coin and then making that coin disappear
* A flashy and seemingly impossible sandwich effect
* A Torn & Restored card trick that can be repeated with the same card

This is just a small sampling of the mind-blowing miracles that can be performed with the Visualies Gaff System. You have to see this stuff to believe it. So, watch the video and see for yourself. (Note that a few of the effects in the trailer feature "Instagram" style methods that couldn't be duplicated in real life. They look great on video, but would be impractical in performance.)

๐Ÿ˜ Jerry's Nugget Cards ๐Ÿ˜
by Murphys Magic starting at $12.00

THE HOTTEST CARDS IN THE WORLD ARE HERE!

Weโ€™ve all heard of them. Some of us have used them. Some of us collect them. Some of us covet them. Great news: in November 2019 the Expert Playing Card Companyโ€™s licensed version of Jerryโ€™s Nuggets will hit the streets, and weโ€™re as excited as you are.

The original Jerryโ€™s Nuggets Playing Cards, as legend has it, were printed forty seven years ago and then hidden in a basement somewhere in Nevada. Twenty or so years later they were put on sale in the concession stand at Jerryโ€™s Nugget casino for a couple of bucks a piece. Mike Skinner used to open up a deck deck for every group he performed for, and then give them away afterwards!

By the Nineties, you couldnโ€™t get a deck of Jerryโ€™s anywhere. Unless you had very deep pockets. Knock offs flooded auction websites. And, thatโ€™s when Bill Kalush stepped in. He negotiated the rights to reproduce these seminal cards. And you can get them now for around the price of a regular premium deck!

๐Ÿ˜ GEHEIMNISSE (Hardcover) Book and Gimmicks ๐Ÿ˜
by Murphys Magic starting at $89.99

Description:

Andreu's new mentalism release, GEHEIMNISSE ("Secrets") is finally here!

In this beautiful hardcover book of 144 pages, you will find new concepts and methods which will allow you to portray several abilities ranging from expert body language reading skills to real telepathy.

This is 100% practical and working material, which has been tried and tested in the real world and fries people's minds!

I) EINSICHT (A 100% Commercial Peek with Business Cards!)

The mindreader talks about intuition and E.S.P., and then proposes an experiment regarding these subjects.

After displaying three business cards, one is handed to a participant, who is asked to write a word which relates to her in a personal manner. The mindreader proceeds to place the card in the middle of two more business cards to make sure there is no access to the information and everything is then concealed in a pocket.

After concentrating in the thought... the mindreader is able to tune into the power of intuition to REVEAL THE THOUGHT PERFECTLY!

Finally, the business cards are shown again on all sides and the written thought is handed out, so the participant keeps a souvenir of this special moment FOREVER.

This is one of the most powerful and elegant ways to know information and it's so simple to do, you will smile when you know the secret!

There are no strange moves, cuts, controls, shuffling or unjustified procedures. This is completely self-working if you follow the provided instructions.

If you want something that will blow your spectators' minds but you'd also like to leave your business cards with them, this is the perfect and most exciting way to do it!

II) THE HANDS OF FATE (A Modern Approach to Which Hand)

A participant is asked to make several random choices. First, she places an imaginary coin in one of her hands. Surprisingly, the mindreader ascertains where the coin is hidden without any questions and in a very visual manner!

Then, the participant makes a final decision, where she contemplates if her life has been more influenced by fate or by chance.

It doesn't matter what she finally answers, the mindreader demonstrates that her exact decision has been PREDICTED WITH 100% ACCURACY!

This is one of the most beautiful and elegant versions of Which Hand; the procedure is so simple to do that there is no need to worry about failing, as it's completely self-working.

The ending is so clever and strong that your participants will have no idea how on earth you were able to predict their every action!

Also, rather than making your "Which Hand" look like a boring 50/50 game, this presentation is so powerful that your participants will be absolutely fascinated by every word you say. This fantastic presentation is worth the entrance fee!

III) SIGNS OF THE GODS (Propless Zodiac Sign Divination)

The mindreader narrates the history of zodiac signs and their ancient meaning.

Although he explains he's not a believer in astrology, he proposes an intriguing experiment based on reading people using their zodiac signs.

Two participants are selected at random from the audience and asked to think of their signs; the mindreader tells them to focus on aspects of each sign and think of the answers to a few questions he will ask. Even though they never give a verbal response to any of the questions, BOTH SIGNS are perfectly divined!
* Very simple to perform with minimum memorization required.
* No anagrams, fishing, dual reality or pre-show.
* No asking for seasons, months, colors or any birth numbers.
* No need to touch or get close to your participants. They never reply verbally to any question.
* Several presentations included:
Presentation I: Zodiac chart
Presentation II: Propless version - (Works in any language).
* Can be adapted to all venues (stage, close up, parlor).
* Can be performed for several participants.

Signs of the Gods is Andreu's HUGE improvement on propless zodiac divination effects; it is powerful, entertaining and allows you to know anyone's sign very fast. The provided presentations are fantastic and don't require belief in Astrology from your participant (or the performer). Even skeptics will love this.

Also, the fact that the spectators never reply to anything verbally makes it - undoubtedly - one of the most amazing and practical modern zodiac divination in the world of mentalism.

IV) PSEUDO HYPNOSIS (Devin Knight)

The hypnotist shows 4 envelopes on both sides. There is nothing written on them, nor are they secretly marked. He then proceeds to hand them to a hypnotized subject (who has his eyes open), claiming each envelope has inside a different colored card: GREEN, RED, BLUE, and YELLOW.

After the envelopes are freely mixed, the hypnotist gives a suggestion to the participant to give him x-ray vision powers, which will allow him to see through the envelopes in order to deduce the correct colors.

After the envelopes are marked in full view, according to what the spectator indicates would be the RED, BLUE AND YELLOW colors, the participant is left with ONLY ONE envelope in his hand.

The hypnotist asks him to open it to see if it matches with the GREEN color, and much to his amazement and that of the audience, the card MATCHES!

Now, the envelope marked with "RED" is handed to the participant for him to open it... the RED card matches perfectly! The same happens with the other two envelopes. In all cases, the participant correctly determines the colored card inside using his x-ray vision! A PERFECT HIT. THE AUDIENCE WILL GO WILD WITH APPLAUSE!

V) TAROT SIGHT (Devin Knight)

An ungimmicked deck of tarot cards is shuffled by a participant.

He ensures that the cards are genuine and all different. After the cards are shuffled, three more participants are asked to come forward and join him. One of the participants removes the top five cards from the SHUFFLED Tarot pack. He places the cards face up on a table so the cards are concealed from the performer's sight, but visible to all the participants. The participants are then asked to mentally select a card. They write nothing down, they just think of a tarot card. There are no restrictions. Each participant could be thinking of a different card, or they all could be thinking of the same card. They do not share their thoughts with each other. They are to give no outward sign of choosing a card - but just to keep it in their creative, visual imaginations. The performer never sees the five selected cards during the routine.

Once the selections have been made, the performer begins the process of reading four minds at once. The incredible thing is that the performer does this without the participants saying a single thing and WITHOUT SEEING the five tarot cards! The participants merely close their eyes and visualize. Despite these impossible appearing conditions, THE PERFORMER IS ALWAYS 100% CORRECT. This is about as close to real mind reading as you will get.

VI) AND MORE!

Every book comes with a beautiful professionally printed design for the second phase of The Hands of Fate. This design is reusable for every performance and will last you for years to come.

Reviews

"With Einsicht, Andreu has evidently evaluated, then cleverly combined a couple of devious methods known in our craft and developed a different, but very practical peek solution. Involving only a minimal DIY approach that takes minutes to prepare. I'm sure many billet workers will want to add to this to their arsenal once they realize how effective and natural it is handling-wise."
- Steve Drury

"Signs of the Gods is a very effective way to guess a person's Zodiac sign. The mixture of methods used is quite remarkable and, if one applies a good, solid presentation that doesn't look like a guessing game, it will be quite effective. I recommend you study all the nuances given in the instructions in order to present it in a very convincing way."
- Richard Osterlind

"Definitely some very useful ideas contained within these pages. If you are a fan of propless star sign divinations, you will really enjoy Andreu's!".
- Robert Watkins

Note: The book is entirely written in English.
