TURN is just one of those tricks you have to see. So, stop what you're doing and watch the quick trailer--it's less than a minute long.

In short, this trick with four cards is an ADVENTURE. Cards change from blue to red to multicolored, and the faces change from blank to Queens to Jokers. But it's the smooth-as-silk handling that sets this packet trick apart. Dare we say, it might be the most efficient, amazing packet trick we've ever seen. It is certainly our VERY favorite Peter Pellikaan creation to date. Usually in tricks of this kind, there are necessary adjustments. You have to change the count you do, or move a card from top to bottom, or do a secret reversal, or take a card out, or add one in. GONE! In TURN, the handling looks identical in each phase, and one phase flows seamlessly into the next.

You receive a set of specially gimmicked cards and an easy-to-follow video tutorial.

  • Jim asks: Is the Elmsley count needed? Any other counts? Thx

    • 1. John answers: Just by watching the trailer it looks like there is some sort of version of an Elmsley Count/some sort of count
    • 2. David answers: If you have a copy of “Counts, Cuts, Moves, & Subtlety”, you too can do this trick! My copy is signed by the author, and I refer to it often.

  • Dennis asks: Just trying to clarify the above without any exposure: are any counts involved. Fair question?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: There is a false count involved.
    • 2. Simon answers: It requires the brother Hammond two for four count. Easliy available from countless books and dvds. Dr S Lightovand
  • Mark asks: More specific....yes or no - do you need to be proficient at doing the Elmsley count? If not, then it is truly the best packet trick ever!

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: There is a false count, but it is not an Elmsley count.
  • Murray asks: Is the video downloadable (or,instead, only available to watch online)?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: You can download it or watch it online.
  • Matthieu asks: Is it very different from Rainbow Connection by Mathieu Bich?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Very
  • Rohan asks: How is the clean up on this? Are the last 4 cards examinable? or this is just used for Instagram etc?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The cards can be examined one by one during the routine but cannot be handed out at the end. If this worries you, I would suggest not buying this effect though :)
  • Frank asks: I assume you cannot hand out the cards at the end?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Correct
  • Jeffrey asks: I know it "looks Obvious" from the trailer but you never know for sure unless you ask - Are these all Phoenix Brand Cards? (I am a Phoenix user and hope they will match up for me). Also, I guess I can ask for the loyal bike folks, Can you get them in bicycle? I understand that a "packet trick" really doesn't matter in the long run as you are only using a few cards but it really matters to some people I guess. Thanks

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: They are Phoenix backs. You are also taught how to make your own gimmicks on the explanation if you are of a different deck-persuasion.
    • 2. Robert answers: Why do you do most of your card miracles with Phoenix decks? They are hard to get
    • 3. Benjamin answers: Well they obviously aren't har to get. You just type in the search bar directly above on this site and buy a case. You also can buy them directly from Phoenix if you're picky. If you're really lazy to order online then just walk to a Barnes&Noble and check if they have any. Honestly they aren't hard to get and if you've read the motto of theirs it cards made for magicians ??
    • 4. Jeffrey answers: Phoenix cards are not hard to get. There is a warehouse in Europe and the USA. I am very pleased that Josh got on board early and many top name magicians are using Phoenix brand today. There are many great reasons to switch but I agree (which is why I asked) that many gaffs still only come in Rider Back. I am glad that I am a pretty good self gaffer now so I can just buy the product in bike and make m y own in Phoenix when I need to. To be honest, once you try out the new LARGE PIP decks, it will be hard to go back to anything else. It is amazing what a small tweak can achieve without making them look like those ugly "JUMBO BIKES". Even his stripper decks. He tweaked the artwork on the back just enough to hide the trim. A true work of art.
  • Victor asks: What is the reset? If I do strolling is this usable?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Reset is very quick.
  • Nick asks: Is it possible this will be released as download only? I see no reason to pay shipping to Canada for this effect, specially when I wont use the cards supplied anyway.

    • 1. Tony answers: You can email to Vanishing at magic@vanishingincmagic.com they can arrange the download for you
    Post an answer to this question
  • Craig asks: How difficult is it to make the gimmicks up in 4 different brand card backs? Which would be more along the lines of Cervon’s Dirty Deal.

    • 1. Tony answers: It's very easy to make but you will need to buy some extra stuff from Vanishing
    • 2. Jeffrey answers: Although the something extra you need to make your own set (or to replentish the set that comes after many many uses) is not expensive but you probably have a similar "Item/substance" that could be used as well. It is gone over in the instructions.

  • Douglas asks: How difficult is the making the false count look so good for a young starting magician of 18? Would this be better letter as he gets better or can he learn this fairly easily?

    • 1. Harapan answers: Just like any magic trick and any sleight, it does take some practice to make it smooth, but I don't think age is a factor.

  • Wayne asks: Seriously, what do you move to reset TURN? You say it's easy.

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The reset is covered in the instructions. If you need assistance, feel free to email us.
  • Matthew asks: Can the trick be done out of the box, or do we need to make the Gimmicks with our own decks?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: You receive the cards, and they are ready to be used.
  • Andrew asks: Could I keep this in my wallet? Or would the ware and tear compromise the method?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Yup. So long as it's not so tight that the cards warp.
  • Neal asks: Not a question, but a lot of these comments don’t seem to understand how beautiful this effect really is. So what if there a kind of count that occurs a couple or three times or more? It’s a beauty that would be worth learning a new count to be able to perform. ( getting off my soapbox now.)

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Glad you like it!
  • Chuck asks: Are the cards standard weight and poker sized or are they DD weight and bridge sized?

    • 1. Jim answers: Standard and poker-sized.

  • Lee asks: I often wonder why folks ask "Do I have to learn how to do an Elmsley count or some other sleight?" with card tricks. If the answer is yes, step up out of your comfort zone a bit and learn a few moves. Many seem to only want "self working" tricks that take no practice (although self working tricks need practice, too). I'm certainly no master card manipulator, but I have learned a few of the basics which opened a whole new world for me in being to perform something that actually takes a little skill.

    • 1. Jim answers: You probably meant to put the above into the review section.

  • Daniel asks: Is it possible to get any un-gimmicked phoenix playing cards so that I could potentially do a clean-up after revealing the final: red, blue, green and yellow backed cards?

Customer reviews for Turn by Peter Pellikaan

Reviewer

Jeffrey

Although some of Mr Pellikaan's stuff is rough to learn (gruff voice and one camera angle self shot) I have been able to learn some really clever stuff by giving it the time and effort. "TURN" however, is actually taught by "Nathan" (from VI)? and he does a fantastic job. This is a very easy effect to learn and perform and reset is next to nothing. What you see is what you get, ready to go out of the box.

 
Reviewer

Melchor

Relatively quick to learn for all skill levels and enough great beats to make it more than worth that twenty bucks.

The instructional video is great and covers everything, including the very quick reset.

Dope stuff.

Awesome!

 
Reviewer

Thomas

This is a wonderful quick trick, but mine came without roughing it seems. I used the roughing stick from Vanishing Inc which works fine. I don't know if this is a common thing or just something that affect the packet I recieved, but I wanted to point out that you may not be able to perform it if you don't have a roughing stick.

I love packet tricks and this is no exception. The tutorial walks you through every step of the performance extremely clearly. The setup is explained in great detail. This is one of those effects that you can perform on a moments notice and will really wow the spectators.

"TURN" is one of the most magical packet tricks I have seen, which does not involve any difficult moves or sleight of hand, yet is filled with change after change, both faces and backs. There is nothing else I have seen in the way of packet tricks that packs so much visual magic into a few cards that you can carry with you in your wallet. For the cost, you receive a set of specially printed cards that are ready to use, and a tutorial which teaches you how to perform "TURN", and as a bonus, how to make your own custom set of cards if you desire. I highly recommend you check out the trailer and you will see how wonderful this effect is!

 
Reviewer

Stephen

I really love this effect. It’s simple yet effective and the video is excellent. Looking at the comments and questions, I can tell you this effect works well and the reset can be done in seconds.

 
Reviewer

Arthur Alexander

I love packet tricks. This has to be one of the better packet tricks that I've seen, which only involves one move and is nearly instantly resettable. This packs in so much visual eye candy and is something you can carry in your wallet. Highly recommended!

This is a worker! I am not skilled in moves that require significant manual dexterity, but I can handle the one move that the creators of this clever illusion teach with this packet of cards. The audiences for whom I've performed this trick (all small groups, close up) are consistently astounded and amused. That's a great outcome. I highly recommend this product!

This is a fun packet trick that's quite easy to do. You'll have to practice the setup and reset a few times, but that's not an issue. It's colorful, filled with several changes, and has a great ending. The slight slight needed is simple. Having a bit of extra roughing might help over time.

 
Reviewer

Dustin

I don't buy many packet tricks. It really has to be something special for me to buy it.
Bought I bought this one and it's probably my favorite!

 
Reviewer

Rob

I was afraid that this trick would require a lot of fancy sleights and sneaky manipulations. It doesn't. It does require only one "move" repeated four times. This is great for me because I have a terrible memory and always forget the sequence of required actions.
For me this a "WTF" on steroids. The only thing is that you can't throw the final reveal on the table, like you can with "WTF".
One thing that is missing in the instructions is a clear explanation on how to do a reset. It took me multiple viewings and screen captures to get it down. It would have been nice to include a PDF to show the setup. I ended up taking pictures and make my own PDF.
All in all this is a great effect and I'm glad I got it during the Black Friday sale.

This is a great trick for both beginner and more advanced. Easy to follow instructions and very little practice required for proficient presentation.

 
Reviewer

Jerry

Turn is a very nice packet effect by Peter Pellikaan. The instruction download is well done. It is very easy to follow and the steps are easy to learn. There is a section of the video that covers repair / replacement of the gimmick pack which is also nice. The effect is pretty straight forward, but you do need to provide your own story to add to the depth of your presentation. I did have a bit of confusion following the rest instructions, which was probably just me, but after watching it a few times that cleared up.

Overall it is a good packet trick to carry around. there is a lot of changes in a small time with easily master moves. Good impact in a small package.

Very nice card trick.you may have to devise a way to quickly remember the order and where the roughing is,such as a small pencil dot.

 
Reviewer

Jim

This is an amazing packet trick. Everything comes ready to go for you right out of the little packet. Uses Phoenix but the explanation shows you how to apply it to any deck you'd like. You have to have multiple colors of the back design you chose... However, for what you pay this is a really great packet trick from the master of this stuff. Taught well and after an afternoon of practice the routine and reset should be automatic.

A very easy trick with many magical moments! I have never found myself a fan of packet tricks, but I could see myself performing this! I loved how at the end of the tutorial It went in detail on how to make the packet, so I will probably spend a day working with some double blanks and a printer and see if we can come up with some adaptations!

My experience:
By the time you practice TURN enough to show it, the roughing is worn off. It never was effective or reliable for me.

However, when I used the Roughing Stick generously, the climax of fanning the four colors works every time, flawlessly!

They should be sold together as one.

very confusing explanation of trick

 
Reviewer

A decent but not mind-blowing packet trick. In essence, you're doing the same move OVER and OVER, which is fine but does make it more likely someone will notice certain...inconsistencies (no matter how great you think you are. People aren't stupid). Bit expensive for what it is. I recently worked my way through John Bannon's Fractalicious, featuring 5 killer packet tricks for a similar price (Brainiac, JB's take on the B'wave plot, is worth the price of admission alone). Buy that before considering this. And if you do turn to Turn, experiment with the cards you use. To me the trajectory from blank to picture cards gets less amazed reactions than the reverse, which is perfectly possible with a bit of re-working. Also, worth noting that the cards I received were lacking in the secret magic stuff needed for the final display. Could be a one-off or a sign of quality control issues. To be fair, the VI customer service has been typically top-notch and they've gone out of their way to resolve this issue.
