Cardboard Chameleons

Postby mrmagik68 » January 31st, 2021, 9:44 pm

Hey all!

Is Cardboard Chameleons by Daryl still available for purchase nowadays? I've searched several different online magic shops but can't seem to find this available for purchase. I did see the Greater Magic Video Library DVD for sale but I'm really not interested in any of the other effects taught in the DVD. Thanks!



Best,

Roberto

For the effect that may have inspired Daryl, see:

The opening sequences are very similar.

You can find an explanation on one of the old Stevens, now Magic City DVDs. I don't think finding the right cards would be too difficult.

I didn't know that the Stevens videos were still in production, so I Googled up "Magic City". The first link to that search term was a strip club in Atlanta. So now the video is a topless girl named Whyte Chocolate doing packet tricks?

Last I heard, all the Stevens videos had been released on DVD by Twin Cities Magic.

I bought this many years ago from Daryl. The instructions were just printed on paper. The cards are not gimmicked. It came with the 6 card set but to replace them you just need three different decks with contrasting backs.
