The Ambitious Card is visual, impossible, and engaging. It breaks the old "never repeat a trick" rule - in fact, it becomes stronger when repeated, especially as the conditions become more stringent along the way.
This ebook teaches Scott's Ambitious Card routine (no surprise there, eh?). He explains not only what he does, but why he does it--why each phase goes where it does, etc.
A lot of you will be adding the finale to your own routines; it's free, quickly constructed, easy to use, and it creates the same illusion as some pretty expensive marketed gaffs. It is also much cleaner and easier to ring in and ring out than those marketed items.
Great Scott's Ambitious Card routine is strong, with plenty of variety and audience involvement. It builds as it progresses, culminating in a powerful finale that is sure to garner applause and repeat bookings!
This is a wonderful routine. It gets everyone involved which is really important for me when doing table hopping. Scott even explains the best way to have the person select their card. It has 7 phases to it and each one is cooler than the last. It ends with a totally impossible Houdini-esque rise to the top where the spectator removes their card. I loved phases 3, 4 and 5, which are immediately going into my routine. Thanks Scott, for another fun and amazing piece. - Alec "Slyhand" Negri
