Designated Driver by Scott F. Guinn

Scott F. Guinn is back with another commercial card routine!

You explain that you have a sure-fire way to decide which person in a group enjoying a few drinks should be the designated driver. After a deck of cards is thoroughly shuffled, one person selects a card. Three different people look at this card and commit it to memory. When you ask them all to tell everyone which card they saw, you get three different answers--each person names a different card! The card is turned over and shown that it doesn't match any of the cards named. In fact, none of the named cards are even in the deck!

"If you are looking for a cool card effect that will leave your audience entertained and completely mystified, then you should check out Scott F. Guinn's Designated Driver... now!" - Peter Duffie

Some key points:

  • There is no palming or difficult sleight-of-hand.
  • No gaffs or gimmicks are used. You can perform this with any ordinary deck of cards - it doesn't even have to be complete.
  • The deck is thoroughly shuffled by a spectator before the routine begins.
  • Scott explains an alternate ending where the three named cards are produced from three different pockets!
Thoroughly explained in Scott's well-known clear and conversational style, this 21-page eBook includes 16 photo illustrations to aid you in quickly learning this entertaining and astonishing routine.

"Technically, the routine is smart (as usual), simple to carry through by the average magician with a minimum of practice. The technique is simple and direct. But what I liked the most is the story. I can beat the drums and join in the praise for a really cool and magical idea." - Etienne Lorenceau

"This is a GREAT routine! Scott's approach to the Hallucination plot is simply brilliant. Every action is motivated and serves method beautifully. Here you really have a triple punch effect that will you serve well; a fun and powerful addition to your working repertoire." - Joe Caracciolo
