Gambler's Nightmare

card trick magic deck magic trick magician Paul Diamond Paul Diamond's Magic and Fun Shop

For years, the most startling card change was a single, visual change. Gambler's Nightmare changed everything! An entire poker hand changes instantly and visually from four aces, one of the best hands you can get, into a royal straight flush. Completely automatic and self working. 

Originally found in a magic book back in the seventies under the name Visual Poker Change. The late great Paul Diamond made it famous by renaming it Zapped and selling it all over the world at magic conventions and at his shop in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Paul's popular shop called Paul's Magic and Fun Shop was one of the most popular magic shops of the 1970's. Back then the card trick was made from Aviator bridge-sized cards. Vernon Magic now manufactures them with Bicycle poker-sized cards so that you can take them out of a regular deck.

I have been handcrafting these for over thirty years. You will be astonished at the quality and workmanship of these precision and self-working, quality gimmicked cards.

Put a little magic in your life.........Jim
