B'Wave - magic

This is one of the greatest packet tricks of all time. It has amazed audiences all over the world for well over a decade. Now is the time to add it to your repertoire as you'll never find a stronger trick that utilizes just four cards.

The performer holds four cards and asks someone to name any queen. The four cards are cleanly spread on the table — the only face-up card is the chosen queen! Then you turn it over — its back is a different color from the other cards! 

As final proof that you knew positively which queen would be named, you turn over the other three cards — they are all blank! 

We hate saying this kind of stuff, because it makes us sound like normal magic dealers, but there really are no sleights, no rough and smooth, no extra cards or anything like that. B'Wave just uses four cards to create some great mind-boggling magic!

So, pick up this and B'Wave goodbye to rubbish packet tricks! Wow - that made us sound even worse than the normal magic dealers! Sorry.

This is one of those little packet effects (as despised packet effects are these days) that are a must have. Eugene Burger says that everyone should have and perform this (now) classic that is B'Wave, and I quite agree.

It is simple, direct and very powerful - I have always certainly gotten the best reactions with it over the years. You can present it in so many different ways to suit your needs that its potential is limited only by your imagination.



I have carried several packet tricks with me over the years, and as time has gone by, B'Wave has outlasted all of them and is just about the only one still with me. I still like to do a few others now and again, but B'Wave is just so perfect an effect, that it helps to make a decent coin man like myself, appear to be pretty darn good card guy as well. :)

It's not difficult to do, mostly just good presentation and you got yourself an effect that specs will always remember. It's quite amazing and indeed an absolute classic little piece of mentalism done with cards. It's one of those little effects that really is all you need. Highly Recommended. -Mb



It's a classic! I say classic but it still stands the test of time! Every time it kills!



I am just getting into magic and was looking for a powerful effect I could do right away. This fit the bill perfectly. Everyone I have performed it for has loved it. The best part is that they think the trick is over and then you turn the card over, then turn the other cards over. I can see their faces going from "That's cool." to "That was amazing!" Highly recommended.



Jumbo B'wave is a regular part of most of my stand-up shows. It's a reliable trick that always looks "killer"!

SUMMARY: One of the most popular packet effects ever!

If you look at lists of the all time most favourite and popular packet effects, you're almost certain to find B'wave mentioned right near the top.

B'wave was created by Max Maven (aka Phil Goldstein), and is a simple trick to perform. It involves just four cards, and minimal set-up and handling is necessary, so it's very easy to learn. It's largely all about the presentation, as the spectator's selected queen is shown to be the only one face up, and then as a kicker the remaining three cards are shown to be blank. It's similar to The Parade of the Kings, which is an obvious influence, but the final reveal makes it an even stronger effect.

B'Wave can be performed either as a magical effect or as a feat of mentalism, the latter being the recommended and most common way to do it. With the right patter, it can generate a very strong reaction. It's excellent for strolling magic, or for keeping in your pocket or wallet whenever you are called upon at short notice to do a card trick.

This the greatest packet trick I know. It's been with me since I bought it. As with all magic especially mentalism how you use your words is super important. Take good care of them. I had to translate the "technique" wich took some errors but now the trick always get a great response!
