When Benjamin Earl tells us that he's ready to publish his strongest card effect, we listen! In effect, a spectator freely names a card, they shuffle the deck multiple times and then find that card ... and its three mates. Best of all, it happens in their hands, and apparently without the performer touching the deck!

You can present 'Roleplayer' as a magic or gambling demonstration, It only requires basic skills and it is almost entirely self-working! However, more advanced approaches—to both effect and method—are also explained.

Roleplayer is our favorite kind of ebook: a long-form (46 page ebook) approach containing in-depth technical and psychological explanations

"Everyone buy this!!!" Chris Kenner

    Elliot asks: How is this different to the answer by Ben Earl?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It’s an entirely different effect. In this effect, the spectator finds four of a kind - in The Answer, the magician finds a poker hand.

Joshua

I am such a big fan of Benjamin Earl and this eBook is the reason why!
Roleplayer is a perfect piece of magic that is powerful and touching. This is something that is going right into my parlor show and that I will be ending it with!
Benjamin Earl has once again succeeded in performing magic that we will all use and I believe will be used for many lifetimes after we are gone.

Benjamin earl is an amazing thinker, this ebook is great and once again he proves that amazing card tricks do not have to involve complicated sleights.
The very fact the spectator does 90% of the work in there hands makes this almost self working and extremely difficult to work out the method.
The psychology is extremely well thought out by Ben and he is fast becoming my favourite artist.

Ben Earl has done it again, it what I believe to be his best release yet!
Ben has taken a simple idea from his book F is For Fiction and actually made it into a full performance masterpiece, that you can perform close-up, parlour, and even stage! What would it feel like for both you and your spectator to receive wonder in each and every performance. This is what this achieves! Bravo.

Do not hesitate to add to cart. This is a simple yet powerful effect. Knowing how simple the method is still brings a smile to my face. I have been performing the Aces version after having the spectator name a random card. I then follow the trick by performing the trick that never ends by Asi Wind to reveal the random card. Thank you Benjamin Earl for releasing this effect. Shout out to Asi Wind also.

Genius. To quote the ebook, “simple does not mean easy” - that’s very true in this case. The methodology of the effect itself is very simple (essentially self working!), but the psychology and performance element will take practise.
This is an extraordinary, totally fair feeling, piece of work that can be performed as mentalist, a gambling demonstration, “invisible” sleight of hand. Literally anything you can imagine. Brilliant.

I believe what Mr. Earl is really sharing with us here is a new way to think about interacting with our spectators. About how to put a twist on the usual roles magician and spectator often play.
The trick is special, but even if you don’t get anything from the methodology you can start to build a whole new framework of how to present by absorbing the passionate information he shares about empowering an audience.
This trick has inspired an entire 20 minute routine of “spectator as card cheat” where I barely have to touch the cards and my audience does all kind of spectacular things.
My brain never would have gone there is not for this material.
Mr. Earl writes with a clarity and heart that I would love to see more of in this community. He is so excited to share that you have to be excited to learn and it makes for a very enjoyable experience.

I love Benjamin Earl's thinking. Roleplayer is a brilliant piece of magic. The instruction is clear and concise. His focus on the psychology and presentation are great. There is quite a bit of bonus material in this download, too.
I have been doing magic for over 40 years. My wife is my toughest critic. When I performed this for her she smiled and said "Ok, that was really really good."

To be completely fair, I had understood the effect to be quite something totally different when I read the description.

That said, I did really like the effect. It felt quite self working and while the introduction explained it to be script heavy, I'd say that it works quite well with any variation of the script or misdirection to get the same effect. Perhaps not the most beginner friendly trick in the world. But as the description say's: you change place with the participant for a moment, and would therefor I think work wonderfully as a closer after mostly any sett of tricks.
