Impossible DEVINation by Devin Knight

Devin Knight's Impossible Devination has the Mentalism community up in arms. It is, quite simply, one of magic's greatest secrets finally revealed after 15 years! A trick that has fooled almost every magician who saw it performed.

Introducing Impossible DEVINation! With it you can reveal a playing card or duplicate a drawing on a business card hidden completely under an opaque plate under test conditions. A spectator selects a card while your back is turned and it is concealed under a plate. You are still able to divine it simply by placing your hands over the plate. There is nothing concealed in your hands at any time.

Fools even well-informed magicians. Use a borrowed deck of cards if you wish; there are no mirrors, no sleights, no impression devices of any kind utilized for this effect. There are NO marked cards, and the cards themselves can REALLY be shuffled by a spectator. NO stacks to worry about, NO switches, and absolutely NO setups.

Those who have seen Impossible DEVINation are raving how clever the method is. You will marvel at it as well, remarking that it is so clever, why didn't I think of it.

The secret has never been revealed before and has never appeared in print prior to its release. The method has been jealously guarded all these years. Now, it's all yours.

[Note that this uses the same technique as described in Food for Thought.]


"Impossible DEVINation is so clean, I think I will call James Randi for his $1,000,000 challenge!" - Patrik Kuffs, Mind Stunts DVD

"I feel the effect is well worth the asking price and worth TEN TIMES that if you use this in your professional performances. If you're a mentalist, you'll want this for sure." - Steve Brooks, The Magic Cafe

"When I first heard of Impossible DEVINation, I had absolutely no clue as to the method. When I read the instructions, I was delighted to find out how deceptive and easy the method was. Highly recommended!" - Bob King, Author of the Breather Crimp books #1, 2, and 3.

The method solely relies on certain specifics that allow you to know the card chosen, which is quite obvious and no skill or anything required on the performer's part. The only skill required is regarding the presentation techniques, and variations of presentation where you hide the method that allows you to know the card.

It is exactly as described, however, what some of you may not like is that the presentation is situational/specific. You have to figure out ideas of why you need to present the divination that way. "Food for Thought" is an idea for the presentation.

TLDR; It's mostly about presentation around the easy method that allows you to tell the card easily. Only skill required in my own opinion is the presentation.
