Magic Review - Thinner by Mathieu Bich 

You remove a deck from a card case, the card case magically flattens out! 

With the cards in your hands, you squeeze them with your fingertips and one fourth of the deck seems to disappear! 

You will repeat that 3 times, and each time about 1/4 of the cards disappear! 

At the end you'll only have 4 cards in your hands -- these are the 4 Aces (or any 4 cards you want).

  • Easy to perform and self contained
  • No palming of any kind
  • Long lasting gimmick
  • VERY visual and customizable
  • Perfect for close-up or parlor -- it was Mathieu's closer at the Magic Castle for years

Great review of what seems to be a fairly limited trick. Limited in that it is angle sensitive. I would like to see how you "get into it". That is super important.

Also, is there motivation in leaving 4 of a kind at the end? Seems to me better to end with 4 selections. But that depends upon how much flexibility you have to get into it.

Edit: The trailer says easily modified so you can have 4 selections. I have to be honest, it is pretty clear what is going on with the cards. I'd have to see the advanced method but the "easy" one is unimpressive. YMMV.
