Revoke by Gianni Vox
In comes Revoke by Gianni Vox. Using a borrowed Sharpie (Permanent marker... none of that dry erase garbage) you have a spectator sign their initials on THEIR OWN COIN. You draw an 'X' on the other side of the borrowed coin. You show your hands completely empty, then wave your hand over the 'X'...
The 'X' vanishes, you move your pointing finger along your arm, up your other hand and on to the back of your hand! It's permanent. It's not wiping off.
THAT is Revoke!
Revoke has been designed with the impromptu street magician in mind. You can walk into a party with next to nothing and perform this miracle with all borrowed objects.
-This is the effect you've been waiting for. It's small, will fit in ANY pocket (even little tiny ones). You are always ready to perform this miracle.
-Everything is examinable at the end, because everything is borrowed. Never get caught with some weird gimmick you can't explain.
-You leave your spectator with the impossible coin, missing the 'X' of course. They WILL show this to people and talk about it. How could they not?
Warning: You will need to help your friends pick up their jaws off the floor after they see this. This isn't your grandfather's coin trick. This is a coin trick for the new magic generation.
Special Note: Ellusionist would like to credit Cody Nottingham for his effect 'Mark' originally released in 2011. Although very similar, both effects were the result of independent creation. Cody's effect will again be available on the DVD he is releasing later this year.
i remember seeing david blaine do a similar effect like this on a spectator and i thought it was amazing. once i saw this release i knew i had to have it... Possibilities are only limited by your imagination! have fun with this, and the method is simple ingenious and sleight free
A strong effect with a setup and handling that is more delicate than I had expected. The delicate setup makes it challenging to handle the coin naturally. I'm hoping that with more practice, trial and error, I'll be able to work around that.
One hour of practice and i do it almost perfectly ! Very easy and visual !
To sum it up:
You will definitely have to improvise on using the gimmick, it won't really work as well as expected unless you get a little creative. This isn't really addressed but maybe it just really works well for GV. But it is worth buying and unlike some comments would lead you to believe, it's not expensive at all, I purchased what I needed to perform this many times over for $5 online. This is really simple to perform and has such a strong effect.
Simple trick, great effect. And Its an Ingenious gimmick and method.
This trick is so simple.. Yet so POWERFUL. Vox does a great job at walking you through the steps and with an appearance from Madison. Its totally worth it
Love this! He only goes over the gimmicks very briefly but you get an idea of it and it is super easy to do!
Easy and very powerful. Excellent teaching by Gianni, as usual. Though, you might not have the materials that you need at home!
I perform this trick all the time because it is sooo easy and powerful
