Dominique Duvivier's new sensation !!!

Seen on TV

It fooled Penn & Teller in Penn & Teller: Fool Us.

Incredible possibilities:

Imagine the deck being mixed in all possible directions (some face up, some face down) by the magician as well as by the spectator. Magically, all the cards are now face down, except a few of them... they allow you to perform incredible revelations: You can predict cards Or find the four Aces And reveal freely chosen cards! Provided: 2 decks of Bicycle Rider Back A cloth bag Instructions with many applications Including Christian Engblom's method Tips and bonus Strengths: A revolutionary concept. A secret jealously kept during more than 40 years. Very easy to do. What they think:

"(...) Dominique performed CIB to me at Le Double Fond years ago. (...) I didn't understand how it was done at the time (...). Recently, Dominique gave me one (it was my birthday), and I was in complete shock !"

  • Gaëtan Bloom

"The great Dominique Duvivier first showed me "C.I.B." back in 2002, in Madrid. I was more than fooled! The truth is the impossibility of this miracle haunted me for years. I simply had no explanation. It was MAGIC. And it is MAGIC!"

  • Christian Engblom

"The fantastic routine, C.I.B., is another diabolical classic from the mind of Dominique Duvivier. The routine has it all. It's practical, self-contained. It's easy to do and it fools everyone... including Penn & Teller. Perhaps the best part is that is an extremely unusual plot that makes it stand out in any show. You will use this masterpiece for years to come!"

  • Bob Kohler

"It's an extreme rarity when an entirely new effect is created and it's equally rare when an entirely new method is created. C.I.B. combines both of these. It is not only a startling new and ingenious effect, but it also introduces an incredibly clever and utterly original method. This miracle is one of the great things to come along in the last 20 years."

  • Bill Kalush

"Duvivier puts in your hands, not just a fantastic triumph, but a potent weapon that is sure to improve many of your existing routines as well."

  • Dani DaOrtiz

CIB is a Russian doll: the more we open, the more we become crazy!

  • At first, we face a high quality packaging
  • Then we find ourselves with a complete kit
  • Then we discover that the trick is devilish
  • Then we understand the universality of the kit
  • Then we notice that there is no sleight of hand at all

Bravo for this jewel and thank you for having made it available for the amateurs or pros who can perform it with great success to the amazed spectators.

    Michael asks: Is the re-set automatic? Is it an effect a strolling performer can repeat immediately for the next group of people?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The reset is automatic.
    • 2. Richard answers: Depends on the effect. If you perform the effect with freely selected cards, the reset is quick and easy but cannot be performed in front of the spectators.

    Lauren asks: In the preview, Dominique is using a Bicycle backed deck of cards. Is this indeed what is supplied? Also, another offer for CIB is $85. Can you explain what the difference is?

    • 1. James answers: Yes, it should still be made in Bicycle brand decks. The $85 version comes with a prepared deck made from Jerry's Nugget Cards.

Customer reviews for CIB: Cards In Bag



Ken Weber warns us amateurs to be wary of tricks that dazzle more because of the method than the effect. CIB exploits a method dazzling enough to have fooled Penn & Teller — and me. The basic effect, one permitting infinite variations, is that any number of cards, freely selected or predetermined (the four aces, for example) are shown to be the only cards reversed in a deck that has been shuffled with complete abandon and freedom by any and all. Cards can be reversed, turned face up, end for end, riffle shuffled, Hindu shuffled — you name it. The selection of cards (if that’s what you choose to do) as well as the mixing is TOTALLY FREE and can be left ENTIRELY to the spectators. The deck is returned to the magician, who, with the deck held inside an otherwise genuinely empty bag, manages to right the entire deck so that all cards are face down with the exception of the selected (or predetermined) cards! The trick comes with several videos explaining all of the above, plus two handlings that dispense with the bag, one by Dominique Duvivier and one by Christian Engbloom. (The Engbloom variation is stunning, but I know I cannot do it reliably and cleanly enough to risk it in public, but maybe you could.)
The trick is “easy to do,” with the caveat that considerable practice is needed to perform the necessary maneuvers in a timely fashion.
So with a bit of work, the effect of CIB can be as stunning as the brilliantly clever method. I love this!



Overall this is a good trick. However, I was a little disappointed to find the supplied bag is more of a fancy version of a PE kit bag or satin wash bag than what's seen in the advertising videos.

For £50+ I was expecting to have the bag seen on the promo videos included. The one supplied is quite a bit smaller, which means you don't have the same amount of space to do the necessary manipulations of the deck. It's still possible, but you would definitely benefit from having a wider bag. I also don't like the shiny, satin material. It's quite slippy, even on the inside, which makes keeping your hands covered a little more difficult.

The decks I received are great and the methodology is genius. I'd have given a higher rating if all the props supplied were as good as the decks.

I don't know if this trick would appeal to a hobbiest. It's definitely more of a formal performance piece than something you'd show to friends down the pub.

It'll definitely be going in to my parlour set, I'll just need to get a better bag made up.



The effect is nothing short of excellent and the decks are excellently made. I have 2 snags however:
The link to the instructions was not working when i purchased the effect but this is not the end of the world.
The other thing and the most important for me is that the bag provided is not the same bag in the video and the top is too narrow to comfortably do all of the manoeuvres and despite the method being absolutely brilliant what you get is something that is quite basic and for £50 i would have liked to see a cloth and wider bag as opposed to an artificial material.
Other than that it is perfect and i'm sure a bag of cloth material and wide could be made easily.
