Cards switch one-by-one until the brain-snapping finale. Paul Wilson’s masterpiece better than ever. The ingenious cards do ALL the work
Here’s what happens:
The magician has their audience members hold a cloth at the corners like a small stage. Then the magician extracts the kings and the aces from a deck of cards and openly places the aces face down on the cloth. One at a time and with no visible moves the kings and the aces change places. Once all four aces and kings have transposed they instantly switch back. Then the magician can hand out the cards for examination.
Backfire includes custom printed cards from the United States Playing Card Company that do all the work for you. There’s almost no sleight of hand and so easy that anyone can perform it. Thanks to the clever routining from R Paul Wilson the change happens so fast that your audiences will swear it looks like real magic. Taking cues from his hit effect Ricochet this elevates the reset plot to a whole new level of astonishment. There’s nothing else quite like Backfire.
