The Web - magic

Possibly the scariest card trick in the world!

Jim Pace's "The Web" will out impact any other effect in your repertoire.

For those that want to go for the jugular and take no prisoners, the Web gets a more visceral reaction than any card effect ever created!

In fact, there are some people you simply should NOT do this effect for because it starts out so innocently, yet ends with such a startling reaction!

The Effect: This makes 'em jump up and scream! Four blank cards are counted onto the spectator's palm up hand. Then pictures of spider webs appear and disappear from the faces of the cards. To conclude, the spectator is asked to wave his hands over the cards. As he does, he discovers a large, realistic spider on the back of his hand. The spider is undetectable, and you are way ahead! At the right time, in the right place, this receives an unprecedented response! - you will make people scream!

Comes complete with special cards on Bicycle stock, adhesive, spider and detailed instructions.

 

Customer reviews for The Web

BoardGameGeek Reviewer EndersGame

OVERVIEW: "The Web" is a fun effect by Jim Pace that has rightly been dubbed "The world's scariest card trick".

EFFECT: I don't want to spoil the surprise for you. So to get an idea of how it works, google to find a video clip of Lance Burton performing this trick to Craig Ferguson on the Late Late Show. It has a terrific surprise and generates a great reaction!

CONTENTS: The trick itself just consists of a four cards and a gimmick, but it can generate quite a reaction of shock/horror.

IMPRESSIONS: I'd recommend that you first check whether your spectator (aka `victim') has a phobia of spiders, in which case I'd suggest picking another subject. It can provoke quite a reaction, and you don't want to freak someone out unreasonably. But when done with the right person, it can be very fun for everyone concerned.

DIFFICULTY: Preparing and loading the gimmick requires a little trickery, and you have to watch your spectator angles, but it's fairly easy to learn, and the moves required are not very difficult - just a bit of misdirection at the right moment, and you are ready to go. There's some "magic" that happens along the way, but it's really all about the moment of the fun reveal at the end.

RECOMMENDATION: The Web is a very fun trick! Although it requires a bit of preparation and you have to pick your `target' carefully, the pay-off can be well worth while, and create an experience that is simultaneously freaky, magical, and memorable!
