"This is a GREAT trick for a group of people. Think dinner party, down the pub, soccer practise - a big group waiting to blown away. And with Over The Top you can oblige. It has LOADS of phases, is super easy to do and ends totally clean. This was the routine Cameron chose to end his acclaimed Magic Castle act, so you KNOW it's a keeper!! "
Cameron Francis’ OVER THE TOP is the mother of all card tricks. It is a multi-phased, virtually self-working, juggernaut of magic.
The cards are shuffled and cut. (Remember that – it’s important). A selection is made and lost in the deck. Then the deck is handed to a willing spectator who proceeds to quiz those watching about the value of the lost card. Based on the crowd’s answers your new found friend deals piles of cards onto the table.
The new top card of whatever remains of the deck (still out of your hands remember) is flipped over. Incredibly the spectator has found the selection. But you ain’t seen nothing yet… we are only just getting started.
Remember those random piles the spectator dealt down earlier? The top cards from each are turned over and IT’S THE THREE MATES OF THE SELECTION!!
Before your audience can react, you also reveal that the spectator found THE FOUR ACES!
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL… THEY ALSO FOUND THE FOUR ROYAL FLUSH SETS. IN ORDER. All from a shuffled deck, and all in the hands of your spectator.
But OVER THE TOP doesn’t end there. You still have one more incredible, unbelievable climax… It’s insanely cool that your spectator found all those cards from out of a shuffled deck, especially when they flip the remaining cards over and discover that the rest of the pack is BLANK!!!
That’s not just mind blowing magic… it’s OVER THE TOP!
Just as perfect for a small intimate group as a full blown stage show, Over The Top is the kind of trick that makes reputations. Cameron Francis has used it as his set closer for years, and even picked it to be the centre piece in his Magic Castle act in 2013.
As Cameron says ‘If I had to pick just ONE trick to perform and I was going all-guns-blazing to impress… I’d definitely pick Over The Top!’
