Magic download (video) by John Guastaferro ($12.00)

Fluid. Smooth. Surprising. "Wonder Aces" is just over a minute long, but it is ten years in the making. John Guastaferro (whose debut hit collection One Degree remains one of the most acclaimed Vanishing Inc. books in our history) is back with a sensational new download. "Wonder Aces" combines two older pieces with several brand new insights: the result is a silky smooth Ace routine.

You begin by producing Aces one by one: the first materializes, the second is found reversed in the pack, the third appears in a sandwich, and the fourth is "painted" across your fingers. But then things take off! The pack changes from blue to red, and to conclude, the Aces themselves change from blue to red.

"Wonder Aces" is within the realm of the intermediate performer, and no special cards are required. John G gives clear, step-by-step instructions on how to perform "Wonder Aces," which features his elegant Ballerina Cut.

This routine is worthy of your attention, and it can be performed set to music or performed with a narrative. A bargain at the offered price, add "Wonder Aces" to your repertoire today.

“A visual masterpiece!” Jack Carpenter

“You will be fooled as badly as I was. John G. has constructed a masterpiece of plot, structure, and handling. What a great trick!” John Bannon

“Wonder Aces typifies the work of John Guastaferro - elegant, economical, with one extra surprise you didn’t see coming. Then another one.” David Regal

"This routine displays a wonderful economy in its ratio of method to effect. It is a lovely dance done for the eyes".Stephen Minch

Running time: 10 minutes 37 seconds

  • Rick asks: Is this off of any of John's previously released DVDs or books? I've got 6 of his DVDs & that ballet cut colour change looks familiar.

    • 1. John Guastaferro (creator) responds: This specific combination of ideas does not appear in other DVDs or publications. However, it draws elements from John’s effects “Introverted” (One Degree and Center Stage) and “Tidal Wave Aces” (Brainstorm). Just download also explains the set-up and finer points from start to finish.

Woo! John G is back! Saw this on FB and wanted to learn. I can do it too! No where near as hard as it looks :D

 
Reviewer

Noel

Thanks John! Great routine. Having a lot of fun learning it. Very clever and easy to do. The Ballet Cut will take me a bit of practice but it's fun to learn.

Been a fan of John G since One Degree. So glad that he's releasing material again. This routine is just lovely.

 
Reviewer

Ed

Wow. Is it just me or is John the smoothest magician there is? Big fan of this. Learning it today. Instructions are clear and most of the routine is pretty easy actually.

Absolutely love this trick! John's explanation is great, especially his voice is so soothing and made me want to watch and listen over and over again. Definitely 5 star!

This is a great trick! Its very deceptive and just like other people have said, this is a whole lot easier then it looks! This is almost 100% angle-proof. I would say it can be viewed about 180 degrees around. There could be a possible flash for anyone behind or on the sides.

What a nice little Routine and an awesome ace production. With a bit of practicing the sleights are really easy to do and the color change of the deck at the end is really a kicker ending. This is a perfect opener for a little ace routine and it has the same great effect for the audience like “all backs” from Alex Elmsley. I recommend it for everyone to put it up to your repertoire, it is worth every pound you will pay for.

Just a Fantastic routine. Takes some serious practice, but well worth it. John is so smooth in his presentation that he is such a pleasure to watch.

This is brilliant. John comes across as a lovely chap and his teaching style is perfect. I love it. I’ve also just ordered his book One Degree after reading the free sample.

This is a wonderful, really visual routine for finding the four aces with the kicker ending of changing the back color of the entire deck. While the moves are not difficult, it's still challenging to get it as fluent as performed by John Guastaferro.
The instructions are clear and cover all important moves and subtleties. The principles used in this routine can be applied to many tricks.

This is a great download. Very easy to follow and makes for a great opening effect. VVanishing inc have good downloads,just hope they keep up the standard into the future.

WOW! So easy to learn, so powerful an effect on magicians and laymen alike!

 
Reviewer

Paul

In my opinion, the best colour change routine. I am doing this with the Prism deck for an even more surprising finish! What a great little bit!

 
Reviewer

Bailey

Honestly, there's not much to say this is just a really pretty effect. The ace production itself is the most elegant one I've seen and the final ending is just so well executed. Well worth the price.

Reviewer

'Wonder Aces', wow, what a beautiful routine! John is an excellent teacher and teaches Joshua's ideas alongside of his to make up a routine that simply is a joy to watch and big pleasure to learn and practice!!! It's CGI done with a beautiful 'Ballet Cut'! Everything examined at the end!!!

It’s a great routine. Simple and easy to do. Teaching is adequate for the routine.
I like it

John has put together a great trick. The few sleights in it are not that difficult. The trick has several phases so it takes several times through to memorize it. The ballet cut was new to me but not difficult to become competent.

Very good trick !

Great stuff. I loved learning about the extra pocket created in a jacket. For me, a working pro, this opening in the lining means one could access ALL the pockets for emergency repair if needed!

Love it! Simple to do! Great display.

A short video. If you've done a gimmick less color changing deck or have the Prism Deck, you know the overall premise and method. However, the misdirection on John's presentation is strong. The magic moment of the ace production and the turning of the deck really sets up the color change. His cut flourish is adds a visual element. Also, look into Ben Earl's work on the Ace Production. A great opener for $10 and if you do other intermediate/advanced card work, his book "One Degree" is also recommended.

I love this! So simple and so powerful! Moves are easy to do and makes for a great openers. Learned it and performed it in one day and it was a hit!

 
Reviewer

Jeff

This is an awesome little routine, and takes a simple 4 ace production and turns it into an actual magic effect. Moves are easy, everything is explained well, and I couldn't be happier with it.

 
Reviewer

Dan

A wonderful effect. Highly visual, without being difficult. It couldn’t be constructed more efficiently. Great thinking. It reminded me of a Derek Dingle effect that I used to play with many years ago, but this is better.

 
Reviewer

Garry

This is a great 4 Ace production, very good video production, a great teacher, he covers all the moves and breaks, it is very easy to follow, and very enjoyable to watch.
This routine consists off a two times all 4 Aces reveal, and a killer ending, with a deck colour change.
This is on the top of my list for a 4 Ace routine.
Really cool routine.

 
Reviewer

Scott

Great routine, combining different parts and visuals.
Intermediate level with a fair amount of moving parts to it. Have only recently been watching some of John Guastaferro's magic and have really enjoyed it. All of his work seems to be a keeper. He has trimmed down effects, made them powerful, and worked out all of the kinks. Even purchased one of his older DVD sets because his card magic was so well done. This is a very safe buy.

 
Reviewer

Gary

John Guastaferro Knocks it out of the park with this excellent routine yet again this is a beautiful routine that starts with a nice ace production and finishes with a color changing deck finale and along with the ballet cut which looks so visual. John's teaching style is so detailed and smooth it makes every move easy to understand so just buy it you will not be disappointed.
