Customer reviews for Siamese Twins
Most of us are familiar with Roy Walton's Cardwarp (using 2 cards) which derives from an effect by Jeff Busby. Bill Goodwin took it further and develops it to an effect that uses only 1 card.
This is a very beautiful effect in the hands of Bill Goodwin. The change is visual and magical. There are no gimmicks involved though you have to prepare the cards in advance. Preparation is very easy and takes less than 30 seconds.
This effect was named Siamese Twins due to the patter he used. Court cards are used though you can use spot cards too; youll just need to change your patter. After going through the moves, there is another Rehearsal segment which will go through the whole handling in a faster pace. This is useful for those that has already mastered the basic moves and wants to go through the whole routine. Bonus handlings are also taught.
I was very impressed with the way the instructions are being presented. The instructions are clear and concise without any fill ins. Bill Goodwin has also given all the necessary credits which I believe has got all credits covered. I must say that he is very thorough in his crediting. I hope this Collection will be used as a benchmark for producing Collections in the future.
Good visual magic that you can perform anywhere.
The effect of this trick is turning the card inside out while it's folded. This trick is a routine that contains 3 phrases. The first phase is like an introduction of what are you going to do. The second phase is very visual. And the third phase is the climax ending.
The explanation takes about half an hour. He teaches all phases very clearly with lots of detail - from what kind of card you should choose, to many and many alternate handlings.
This effect doesn't need any gimmick, just a normal card with a little preparation that you could do it easily with few seconds. Note that you will lose one card each time for doing the trick. (And you have to use court card, so a deck of cards will give you 20 times to perform)
This trick is rather difficult in the way of handling. You have to practice this effect until you get used to it and it become natural. I suggest this for an intermediate-advance level.
Bill provides a fantastic explanation of the effect, including a brief overview of the history behind it.
You really have to try this in front of the mirror to understand how simple and powerful this is. This is so good that can be used as a strong opener or as closer!
Bill's version of the warped card is a great single card handling that looks clean and plays big with an audience. A little of practice and you will be on your way.
A very visual, 3-phase, single card version of card warp. Bruce Cervon’s version with the dollar bill is the best single card version but Bill Goodwin’s version is a very close 2nd and I highly recommend it.
This is a very nice handling of Card Ward with a single card. Not overly demanding and it has some nice visual moments.The instructional video is very well done.
A nice and simple yet visually good card trick. More of an intermediate level and anyone with some decent skills and experience should nail this in a couple of hours at most. A good wallet trick for those occasions when someone asks you for an impromptu performance.
a tip - keep you court cards for when you want to perform and then practice with your spot cards
A very good video production, great camera angles covering all the moves on this tutorial, by using just one playing card, this is a very powerfull peice of card magic, this routine includes alternative handaling, with a killer finish, with one half is completely reversed, then the final tear, he also gives credit and explaines the history off this routine too.
This is followed by a full performance, as in the add.
This is another awesome peice of card magic by bill goodwin.
I have always enjoyed Card Warp and to come across a single card presentation, it was an immediate ADD TO CART moment. IMHO, this falls into the category of 'Hidden Gem'.
The teaching in this is well organized and shared in a very easy paced manner, with professional video quality showing both performer view and spectator view. To follow along with card in hand is not going to be an issue. Crediting is given to those that have come before with this plot.
It will take me some time to perfect this pocket illusion, but it is one I will enjoy practicing; (I can only practice the pick a card or card controls for so long, but I too want some eye candy to watch in the mirror and my face does not fall into that category!)
I hope to give this a home in my packet wallet https://www.vanishingincmagic.com/packet-trick-wallets/packet-wallet/ next to my Larry Jenning's Close Up Illusion.
