Contact by Rick Lax (Trick or Refill Pack)

  • Contact is the perfect way to magically exchange ANY TWO PIECES OF INFORMATION. Names, email addresses, numbers—anything that can be written on a card. So it’s great for business, great for friends, great for gigs… and, yes, great for meeting women.

    The trick is simple:

    You tear a card in half. You write your number on one half. The girl writes her number on the other half. The two halves magically switch places.

    Contact ONLY USES ONE CARD. There’s NO TRICKY SLEIGHT OF HAND. How is that possible? It’s because the specially gimmicked Contact Card DOES ALL THE WORK FOR YOU.

    Contact Cards are printed by the U.S. Playing Card Company, so they look and feel like the cards you use every day. That means you can carry a Contact Card with you EVERYWHERE YOU GO. And THAT mean… that you can—AND YOU WILL—perform Contact every chance you get.

    You’ve been warned!

    • “I should stop creating magic now. Because nothing is going to top Contact.” -Rick Lax, April 2017

    This trick is really good. Super simple and can be done with any skill level. But why limit it to just playing cards?. Once you have the the cards necessary to do this you will know what I mean. this can be adapted to anything really. So if you run out of gimmicks. You can actually just use blank business cards once you know the method and handling. If you know anything about card splitting, you could make your own card gaffs. I'm not sure why these ideas weren't thought of or shared in the download, but it's a good alternative if you can't afford to constantly buy refills. By all means you should buy this effect and support the magic. With all this said, it would be really nice if blank business cards could possibly be provided as a future option. Just have them made up the same way as the playing cards are. It would feel more organic. It would also be a good way for us magicians to get away from using playing cards all the time. Just an idea. But overall this is still a really good effect. I'll definitely have fun with it.

    Simply Beautiful...

    Rick Lax has done it again. Great as a stand alone or as a routine closer. The gimmick is not the best part of this trick, it's absolutely necessary, but not the best part. The best part of this trick is the teaching that Rick Lax provides. There are many great "tricks" out there but very few great teachers of magic. Rick takes his time and teaches you the in's and out's, as well as the pyschology behind why you say and act the way that you do. Let's face it, magic tricks without an understanding of human psychology is LAME. What you learn here with Rick will serve you well on this trick and future tricks and routines. Thank you Rick and Penguin Magic for always putting out the highest quality product. Contact is fantastic and great for beginners and pros alike.

    Maybe it's me

    On the explanation video Rick compares this to a no sleight version of French Kiss. I see the basis for the comparison. But French Kiss is hardly a knuckle buster. And, in my view, it's a more powerful effect. This is okay. I would prefer something where you end totally clean, a la French Kiss. The use of gimmicked cards is a bit off putting for me, not always but for this effect. Rick's handling, though, is excellent.
