Well here we
go. I have just got the Paul Wilson tape Twists of Fate. There are 11
IN THE HANDS OF
JUNE - a mental miracle where 2 spectators just think of a
card. Paul finds the cards by just spelling to them I must say I liked this one has some nice bits of by play in it.
- a coin trick where you hang a coins on a invisible hooks. Nice to watch and Paul handles it well.
A variation of a Larry Jennings trick. John Ramsay, of course, gave us the idea of Skyhooks.
- a trick with a borrowed deck if you wish you do a demonstration of your gambling
skills. Strong Aces with a kicker at the end.
POPPER - another coin trick using and I think is one of the weakest tricks on the video Of course
that's just my opinion maybe other people might disagree.
DEALING - a card effect using the Second deal ! Paul says "It does not matter if you second deal or not you can still do this
trick." Which is true but to do it justice I think you have to
Second Deal. Again these are only my thoughts on it.
- is a restored cigarette paper using a virus theme is quite nice to see but I think there are enough restored papers tricks just now .But Paul handles it quite well gets
a few laughs with it.
FLAGG - a self working trick where you say that you will take 3 chances to find his card
three times you try but fail! Then you say "If we add the three cards together you arrive at a number count down to that number and you have the
card." Although it is self working it takes a bit of getting use to as Paul himself says you have bit of counting to do but the effect works.
CONTROL - another good idea here we have a control that can get you
one or four cards to the top. I liked it. Of course anything that Duffie has hand in I like.
Paul has taken the control and added a different hand action. All in all, the control is nice to handle.
- based on a Lennart Green steal (also invented by Gordon Bruce but
never published). Paul makes this look very natural and disarming.
are some of the effects on the tape. There are a few more, and, all in all I don't think it is as good as his first tape
Knock 'em Dead, but again this is only my thoughts on it.
