This is a very good easy to do card trick which looks really cool to your audience. The gimmicked card is very portable and so is easy to carry around when you are asked to do an impromptu magic stunt.

There is a great deal of satisfaction achieved out of performing a card trick smoothly with a normal card deck using pure sleight of hand. However the use of a few clever gimmicks such as a marked card or thumb tip to name two popular examples can really enhance the amount of tricks that can be performed with an otherwise normal deck of cards or a coin.

Also the gimmicks can help to make the trick a lot easier to perform and even to have a much stronger and more convincing effect. This can make certain routines achievable to magicians of a more basic skill set.

Don't think that gimmicks are a miracle answer to becoming an accomplished magician with the minimum of practice. You will still need to put in plenty of practice as you do with normal equipment. The importance of putting in enough practice and waiting until your performance is smooth enough before performing it in front of an audience cannot be stressed enough. Whichever route you take in your magic career, don't forget to make it a fun experience.
