L.O.V.E is one of SansMinds Magic’s latest releases. The amount of magic they are releasing at present is astounding.
L.O.V.E is a cute little effect that ends with four playing cards’ pips spelling out the word LOVE. You are supplied with three gimmicked cards printed by the USPCC to achieve this. The effect is a quick and visual and all the cards can be examined at the end. You will need to supply your own matching backed deck.
The main handling does require a move to achieve the change but it isn’t really that difficult to do. It is taught in full on the the DVD should you not be familiar with it. An almost sleight free version is also explained but this is not as visual as the other version.
On the DVD it is billed as a great effect to ‘pick up girls or to use on Valentine’s Day’. Personally I think this would play well at a wedding, either for the happy couple or for any of the many couples that attend. It would be a great alternative to say ‘Anniversary Waltz’ which tends to be the standard card effect for weddings.
The DVD runs to just over 12 minutes in length but that’s all that is really needed. The production qualities is good, although Chris, who hosts the DVD, does get a bit irritating at times, and I found the footage to be quite choppy. It’s as if lots of sections have been pieced together.
At £19.99 it’s not cheap for what you get, but I think you can get a lot of mileage out of this and, as already mentioned, is the perfect wedding trick. Recommended!
