If you want to perform a card trick wherever you go, but don’t want to carry a whole deck of cards with you, then this is the trick for you. No joke!
When we started Penguin, we knew we had to exceed expectations. So the very first card trick we ever offered was NFW.
It blew us all away, and most importantly DESTROYED audiences. Over the last decade, it’s been performed by literally thousands of pros around the world, every which way.
On the table, on the streets, in the hands, on the floor and even through Skype. How can it be so amazing? One word: Simplicity.
Four cards change from jokers to aces. No deck! And everything’s in plain sight.
PROFESSIONALS: NFW is a worker. If you could measure magic’s impact scientifically, you’d probably find that something in the DNA of this trick resonates with audiences. It’s not a card trick, even though it uses cards.
