From the mind that brought you A.A.C.A.A.N and Double Exposure comes the next evolution in a classic of magic.
Asi Wind, one of the greatest modern conjurors, shares with us Triumph and Triumph Again, a brilliant addendum to John Bannon’s Play it Straight Triumph. Triumph and Triumph Again enters the magic community offering a fresh approach to the original effect, while also providing a baffling finale.
Two spectators are asked to make separate selections- one to be placed immediately face down, the other remembered. The pack is then shuffled face-up and face-down, only to be spread moments later to show the cards have returned to normal face-down position, except for twelve like-suited cards in order! It’s discovered that the card needed to complete the sequence is the one that’s been on the table since the start of the effect.
A spectator is then invited to shuffle the pack themselves, and the trick is repeated to reveal the second selection of an entirely different suit. Finally, the first selection transforms into the second for a startling conclusion.
Learn in intricate detail directly from the master himself. Also as an added bonus you’ll enjoy a second version (and our personal favorite), in which a failed performance turns in favor of the magician.
Spontaneous and unpredictable, Asi's performances are a roller-coaster for the mind. Combining a free-spirited playfulness with superb skill and a uniquely creative mind, NYC based Corporate Mentalist (mind reader) Asi Wind treats each audience to a truly memorable experience. He is globally hailed by magicians as being one of the few performers in the world to constantly innovate, develop, and perform entirely original material. Indeed, when a magician wants to be fooled, he attends Asi's show. No surprise, then, that a committee of his peers recently presented him with the International Merlin Award for "Most Innovate Show" - an award previously given to David Copperfield, Criss Angel, and Penn & Teller. In addition to being the headliner at New York's longest-running magic show, and the performer of choice at the city's most upscale private events, Asi is frequently asked to invent and design ideas for other magicians worldwide. He is currently one of the main advisors for David Blaine and was featured on the recent special, Beyond Magic. Asi Wind was born and raised in Tel Aviv, where he was voted "Best Magician in Israel." He currently resides in New York City, and spends most of his year performing across the globe.
