Red Mango by Mark Calabrese
Red Mango is an open prediction of 3 freely chosen cards.
The deck is shuffled into oblivion, no stacks here.
You place down a prediction and the spectator follows your lead. This is a free choice.
Imagine if it was the same card?
Now, that as a trick would be insane. This is insanity to the power of 3.
Two more selections are freely chosen. You never touch their deck and you always put down your cards first.
ALL 3 CARDS MATCH.

Personally this trick is one of my favorite tricks to ever perform. It is very very smart and the gimmick involved is pretty much supplied in your deck. However to do the two deck version of this you do need something else to make it work. It really was worth it to me. This trick is so freaking great and just omg it’s so smart and I can't - there are no words for how great this trick is. It is taught beautifully and very clear. I do recommend this very much
I decided to purchase this effect after a bit of research, and with that said it has put me off of buying single effect downloads. I made the decision to buy it after reading a message by Mark on the Magic Cafe forums about it not using a well-known method. While that is partly true, he states the complete opposite in the tutorial video, almost contradicting himself entirely. Needless to say, I felt cheated. But I learned my lesson and will stick with my gut next time when hesitating to purchase these downloads.
I will say that his change, to this actually classic plot in card magic, is an interesting one, but it muddies the effect substantially. Chances are if you have been into magic for over a year you will already know some variation of this effect and will be better off sticking with that one.
It's an amazing trick, and trust me when I say that. Yes there are "things" you must have and other things to know that might take time to master. But if you put in the right amount of effort and practice you can fool magicians.
