The Sandwich Plot is a classic of magic. Most modern sandwich effects have one thing in common – they happen quickly, in the blink of an eye. Prisoners explores the other end of the spectrum, where every move is slow, clear, and deliberate.
A card is selected and can be signed if desired. The card is returned to the middle of the deck, which is then spread face-down on the table. The two Jokers are placed face-up clearly and cleanly at each end of the spread and the pack is squared. Immediately and with no moves the deck is re-spread, showing that the Jokers have jumped to the middle of the deck – sandwiching one card between them. It is the selected card.
Prisoners requires no skill to perform, yet achieves an incredible audience reaction because the process is so fair and direct. This directness also allows you to perform without speaking, so it can be done in loud environments or for audiences who speak a different language. This is a perfect closing piece for a card act and is an ideal choice when you can only show one trick to an important client.

Diagonal Palm Pass:
Alex Pandrea has been hailed as a modern master of the pass and for good reason! His passes are incredible. Here, he provides valuable insight into one of magic’s most popular utility moves with his Brick Pass and Turnover Pass videos.
Alex is back with the Diagonal Palm Pass DVD. The result of years of practice and refinement, the Diagonal Palm Pass is unlike any other. Instead of being performed at waist level, the DPP is performed higher up, ideal for when you’re working in stand-up scenarios such as cocktail parties or table-hopping. The video speaks for itself in regards to the stealth results after mastering this beautiful new sleight.
You’ll also learn Alex’s tips and refinements for the Diagonal Palm Shift, considered to be one of the “holy grail” moves from The Expert at the Card Table. Imagine being able to silently and invisibly extract a card directly from the center of the pack. A true utility move, the DPS can be used for an immeasurable number of effects and routines.
Alex goes BEYOND the text and takes your DPS to the next level. In addition to teaching the core mechanics of the DPS, Alex also covers every nuance of finger placement, timing, frame of mind, and more. Equally as important as teaching what to do, Alex also teaches you what NOT to do – giving you common mistakes to avoid, putting you on the path to mastery that much faster. He also teaches 3 powerful effects that utilize the DPS. These are strong and practical, suitable for many different environments.
Learn TWO versatile sleights
Multiple routines included
They sign. They tear. You restore.
TR.AP is a direct and visual piece of magic that leaves audiences stunned. A card is selected and signed by the spectator. The spectator folds the card and then cleanly, unmistakably tears it in half. With a light touch, the magician fuses the two halves back together, allowing the spectator to examine and keep their signed card immediately.
Unlike other T&R routines where the magician does everything, TR.AP provides an incredible level of audience involvement. Because they are the ones who fold and tear the card, there is no doubt in their mind that the card is really torn, making it that much more impossible when the two halves reconnect.
Can be Performed Signed or Unsigned
Easy to do
No tape, glue, magnets, or gimmicks
