    Details

    Capitulating Queens by James Swain and Gary Plants is a visually startling packet effect that is easy to cary and packs a big punch.

    The Effect:
    Four queens are shown and one is selected. The selected queen's back changes color and design and is shown to be different while the other three remain identical.

    A second queen is chosen and changed with the same outcome. It is the only card with a different design. This is then repeated a third time.

    The fourth queen does not change color, instead all the cards that were blue to start with change red!

    For the grand finale, the backs of all the cards change into contrasting colors and designs and can be examined.

    Recommended For:
    Great for walk-around or close-up performers.

    Trick Specifications:
    Includes special cards and printed instructions.

    Skill Level: Easy.
    Category: Card Tricks.

    I'm reluctant to post a review before I have mastered a trick, but I found the "easy" categorization extremely misleading. So disregard my "performance" rating. But I feel it's important to get this review up sooner than later so shoppers can make a more informed purchase.

    I realize that one person's "easy" is not another's, but relative even to other tricks I've purchased on this site labeled "easy," this is anything but easy.

    The effect of this trick is in part, reliant on mastering of a technique called the "Elmsley Count." And as one other reviewer mentioned, the instructions that come with this trick are TERRIBLE. Of course, Magic Geek offers an online video instructional video of the technique which is, "convenient." No? Of course the irony here, is that the Elmsley Count instructional video is labeled "intermediate."

    Nonetheless, I'll probably buy the downloadable video instructional, because the Elmsley count seems like it is a staple in card magic, and I find the free demonstration videos helpful and enjoyable. But, I'm not thrilled about this particular card trick "force." (Posted on 12/12/13)

    Took a few hours to understand how the effect worked and really get it looking good. I gave the 'ease of use' four stars because the explanation of the 'sleight' that makes it possible is poorly explained unless you already know the technique. (I didnt, but most experienced card handlers will) Luckily I also ordered 'Duplicity' which had a brilliant explanation of the same technique. After a little practice this effect amazes! I pull the four queens out of a new deck to add to the 'nothing prepared' aspect of it.Definitely going to be a favorite of mine.

    Picked this up at MagiFest. What a GREAT little trick to "randomly" pull out and do pretty quickly when you are playing a game of cards with friends.

    That's the type of magic I like and perform. "While we are waiting for John to get back from the bathroom, let me tell you a quick story if the 4 ladies if the deck" and do the trick. (Posted on 4/2/13)

    Its really a great trick. A little harder than it looks however. You have to be really smooth and careful with you Elmsly count. (Posted on 3/3/13)

    I'Ve Been Doing Close Up Magic For Over 30 Years And This Is One Of My Very Favorite Tricks To Perform. It Is Easy To Do And The Spectator Reaction Is Always Great - Way Out Of Proportion To The Degree Of Difficulty. Want To Be Thought Of As A Very Good Magician/Card Handler? Buy This Trick! You Won'T Be Sorry! (Posted on 2/10/12)
