The Vault is known to have some gems stocked away in it, and Two Incredible Forces is no exception!  Get your cards out, because you’re going to learn what has quickly become one of my favorite ways to force a card.

 

The video is a quick one and teaches two moves.  The first is the Touch Force by Canadian magician Gary Ouellet.  This brilliantly fluid force is incredibly deceptive and allows you to easily force a card on a spectator all the while having them believe they could have touched any card in the deck.  Since I’m rubbish with a classic force this is got to be the closest thing to it that I’ve seen yet.

 

The second move, called Fiedler’s Flyer, is an interesting force in so much as a card selected by a spectator vanishes from the deck and can be reproduced from any impossible location you prefer.  The best part?  No palming!  That’s right, card to wallet without the need to palm an entire card!  You will need to construct a gimmick, which should take you all of two minutes, but other than that you’re ready to roll.

 

Both sleights are easy to learn, taking only a few minutes to get the mechanics down, and with a little practice should be smooth in no time.  They’re also strong workers.  They can be applied in many ways, and their use is only limited to your imagination.  You could present the routines discussed in the video, but I think you’ll probably have way more fun thinking up your own devious applications.  I know I have.

 

With the price point coming in just shy of ten bucks this is cheaper than a movie and offers, in my humble opinion, more entertainment value.  Whether you’re a card guy or not, this is a great video to pick up in order to arm yourself with some useful forces you’ll undoubtably love.
