Europe's Famous Mechanical Royal Flush! A gambling routine where you remove a poker hand out of a pack of cards. The hand consists of a FOUR of a kind, with one ODD card. As the cards are held in a fan, you simply run a finger across the face of the fan and The cards VISIBLEY CHANGE to a straight flush! Precesion made in Europe. Bicycle Poker!

Reveiw:
The card wizard fans the deck and removes five playing cards. He fans the five cards, showing them front and back. He runs a finger tip across the faces of the cards and suddenly they visibly turn into a run of five cards of the same suit in consecutive order: 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace. A Royal Flush, much desired by Poker players.

Once the cards have changed, each card is shown front and back and dropped on the table. The performer's hands are otherwise empty.

MAK Magic's 'Zapped' is supplied with specially gaffed Rider back poker cards and an instruction sheet that credits Paul Diamond and explains the simple setup and handling. The packet can be set and then added to a matching back deck of cards, ready to be removed, fanned and visibly change whenever you'd like. Once the knack is acquired of running a finger tip lightly across the fan, the illusion of the cards visibly changing is quite magical.

By removing the cards from a deck and then returning them after the effect, the fact that the cards can't be examined shouldn't be an issue. This, combined with the apparently casual display of each card front and back after the change, should sell the effect.

The mechanics used with the Zapped cards has proven itself over time to be simple and functional. The supplied cards are constructed in a neat and fairly imperceptible fashion. Handled with a reasonable amount of care they should continue to look like cards from a new deck for some time.

Zapped can certainly be used as a stand alone watch this card effect, but it is more effective as a kicker ending for another effect. Exactly how its presented is up to the individual performer, the magic of Zapped being that it creates a very startling illusion that couldn't be worked without the supplied cards.

Although not mentioned in the instructions, the Zapped cards could also be used in a Three Card Monte routine where the middle card of the three visibly changes from one card to another, which would no doubt convince those watching that Monte is hardly a game of chance.

I ordered this because I was so impressed with the effect, even after reading some of the negative reviews below. While it is true that the cards are thicker, and that it takes some knack to pull it off, I feel that is just the nature of the effect and that you can overcome these obstacles. Plus, once you see how it is done you can probably make your own (I am sure going to try) I liked the fact that rather than 4 of a kind, my gimmicked cards came as rather inconsequential cards (3 clubs, 6 hearts, etc) so it that much better of an effect when it *ZAPS* into a royal flush diamonds. Honestly, I am not trying to cover up any of the problems with this, it will require some practice to pull off, but I feel it is such a cool effect that it gets 4/5 stars in my book.

I first saw Zapped performed on T.H.E.M. (Totally Hidden Extreme Magic). For those that never saw this show it aired shortly on network television some years back. In one episode, four magicians walk into a casino to play a game of five card stud. Basically it was a prank on the dealer when all players laid down a royal flush. Each magician had a different production of their "family" cards, but my favorite was Zapped. I knew there was more than sleight of hand going on right away, but I put off trying to find this gimmick for quite a while. I'm glad I own it now - I can see how much more versatile it really is! The cards appear completely clean after the trick is done. I give this one a 3/5, however, simply because it is more likely to be used as a gag not a close-up effect and because it takes good amount of practice to get this one to look really smooth. Nonetheless, I am fully satisfied with my purchase and hope you will be too.

I too was impressed with the "Zapped!" effect as seen in the movie "Shade". Therefore, I purchased this trick promptly after seeing the movie (from a different vendor however). Needless to say, I am NOT IMPRESSED. The cards are visually thicker than normal playing cards thus making the "angles" somewhat difficult to work with. The "mechanism" that allows the cards to change from random cards to the royal flush is noisy - it sounds loud compared to a normal riffle and it is a rather suspicious sound compared to the normal, soft riffle of playing cards. Because of the thick contsruction and the mechanism, the cards are extremely stiff and rigid thereby making it difficult to even get all the cards to "change" at the same time. Finally, the quality of the "mechanism" - I had to disasemble mine and re-glue mine immediately because part of it was exposed at all times. Even when using very wide fans, it was difficult to conceal and there are noticable gaps between the cards due to their thickness. Additionally, setup is cumbersome at best, especially considering the angles - you'd better have these cards pre-set in a deck of cards and when you show the deck, watch those angles because the thickness of these trick/gaff/acrobatic cards is clearly visible. You definately do not want to let the spectator handle these cards after perming the routine. Way too risky and will definately blow the whole effect. This trick is extremely angle and audio sensative. The reason one might not notice this in the movie Shade is because the sound is muted in favor of intro music. The idea and premise behind the trick is AWESOME. The visual effect is stunning (when it works). The times you can use it - seem limited to noisy environments (bars, restaurants, etc.) I would not recommend this for the parlor style closeup card magician. For restaurant/bar/street magicians who have the assistance of ambiant background noise and other distractions, this trick might prove useful. Hope this helps.

After seeing this trick in the movie "Shade" I had to have them. They are super easy to use, and can easily be set up in less than 30 seconds. Thanks alot.
