Probably need an uncut performance video to evaluate whether the thing plays as written or as a cluttered convoluted mess.

Tom Baxter, who wrote a book on open prediction, gave it a fairly good review. Thought it would work as described about
75% of the time, said it had a way to bring it to a conclusion
the other 25%. Still, like Jonathan said it would be nice to
see a video.

The author of Destiny started a number of threads on the Magic Cafe, it is reviewed by Tom Baxter in one of them.

Tom Baxter's review of this effect over on the Green Monster seems to have upset our inventor such that now he is very disappointed and threating to remove this item from the marketplace.

Don't touch that dial !.......Stay Tooned ! (sorry Pete)

What upset the author of the effect was that I said in my review that the optimum result taught in this effect will happen, in my opinion, about 75% of the time. The other 25 % of the time the performer will follow the author's "out" suggestions, leading to a slightly different, but acceptable ending to the effect.

He seemed to think that people took that to mean that the effect wouldn't work 25% of the time.

It works every time, but the handling appears hands-off 75% of the time.

Hi,
my disappoint was on the big amount of mail that I have received about this percentage (75%) where many people did write me that this percentage is too low and the effect doesn't work in 25% of the case. After the last entity's post the equivoque has disappeared. I don't remove it from the marketplace.

OK, Tommy, glad to hear that you're still offering this product in the marketplace, but I revert back to Jonathan Townsend's original request to view an uncut performance of the effect. Is that doable??

For a video demo, I ask to my friend to make for me a video performance... I don't know very well the english. I understand the english but a very hard work to speak and write in english.
I give many thanks to T.Baxter for the correct english of my effect. If there are some error is only because I add other effect to Destiny. In this moment I continue to write my last effect that I give for free bonus with Destiny ("Destiny Evolution") When I finish I send it to all buyers. For the video demo I wait my friend and how I have it I put it on youtube.
Bye

If this can be intest to someone I have start my last version of Destiny Evolution.


DESTINY EVOLUTION 2:

I remove from Destiny Evolution the prediction of the total card dealt on
the table and I put this game to 100% hand off...
( I touch again only the prediction and last card to reveal it but hand off from the deck )

I ask to select 4 card and I put these card on the table as prediction.

Now I ask to shuffle the deck and put it on the table ( I don't touch never deck )

1. Now I ask to the second spectator ( You can call it via phone, if you want increase the impact ) to perform a mental selection...

2. I ask to the first spectator to deal one bye one the card on the table
and when he wants stop the deal.

3. I ask to remove the last card on dealt and put this card in the center
of the table.

4. I ask the second spectator to name for the first time the thought of card

5. Last card dealt on table is the same card.

6. the 4 card and this card complete a "Straight Flush"

Now we have 100% hand off.

In this variontion I want give a single answer for who wants perform Destiny or Destiny Evolution immediately. I don't require expert magician to perform
it.

No gaffed deck.
No stooges.

In fews days I write this new effect and I send it to all buyer of Destiny.
I send for free it, but because it require extra work for me, if you want
please add a donation just for the extra work to write the explanaition of this new impossible effect.


For the new buyer I send this new effect only on request...

bye
Tommy.


PLEASE PUT A COMMENT ON THIS. ( If you like or not when you have this effect )
