THE BLURB:
The Marvelous Fourseen Wallet. The is a wallet like no
other.

The Marvelous Fourseen Wallet is the first wallet to offer a
simultaneous multi-peek feature. For the first time with a
wallet you can instantly peek four separate pieces of
information written on four separate business cards inserted
into four separate places in the wallet. Of course you can
still do a single peek routine but now the possibilities for
routines have exploded.

This is not all that the wallet can do however.

As well as the "Fourseen" feature the wallet also has:

A palmed card/billet to wallet. This card to wallet feature
is secured behind a clear plastic sleeve which is in turn
secured by a leather flap fastened by a button popper
fastener.

Built into this sleeve is a feature that allows for the card
to be inserted into an envelope for an extra layer of
impossibility.

Included with the wallet is a bonus leather business card
holder that fits perfectly inside the wallet. This business
card holder is also gimmicked in the following ways:

Mullica Wallet feature.

Secret peek window

Secret Swarmi nail writer window, which makes nail writing a
breeze as the card is held securely in place while the
wallet itself gives you plenty of cover.

When the two wallets combine they allow for routines never
even imagined with a wallet before including instantly
stealing out a card/business card from one wallet and with
no sleights, palming or funny moves, loading it directly
into an envelope sealed inside a fastened sleeve inside a
separate wallet. The possibilities for this (which I call
the Reverse Mullica Move) could change wallet magic forever.

The wallet itself can also be used as a regular wallet. It
has plenty of room for notes, credit cards, business cards.
You could even pop in one or two packet tricks.

Included with the DVD is full instructions on how to use the
wallet plus twenty routines you can perform with the wallet.

The wallet is suitable for all skill levels. The routines
included range from simple Ambitious Card routines with a
card to wallet ending (palm and no palm versions) to complex
four way cold-reading routines and more technical sleight of
hand effects making full use of the incredible potential
this wallet has.

The routines included are:

Raw Ambition
A basic ambitious card routine with card to wallet ending.
This is for a beginner in card magic. This is just to get
newcomers started working with the wallet immediately.

Riding Out
The Joe Riding "Think a Card" routine with a card to wallet
"out".

ANAAC
A unique twist on the Any Card At Any Number plot. One
person thinks of a number and writes it down. Another person
thinks of a card and writes it down. They never say them out
loud until the end. A fastened pocket is opened in the
wallet to reveal a sealed envelope. Inside this envelope is
a card. It is the card thought of by the spectator. The card
is turned over to reveal that a number has been written on
the back of the card. It matches the number thought of by
the second spectator.

Twin Peeks (similar to ANAAC).
Two people are asked to think of a card to see if there is
any synchronicity between them. They write down the card.
When they are shown they do not match (probably). A sealed
envelope is removed from the wallet. Inside the envelope is
a card. It matches one of the choices. On the back of the
card is written the name of a different card. It matches the
second spectators choice.

Think of Dog
The spectator is made to think of the name of their pet my
means of a very powerful psychological force. The word is
then revealed along with a "warm" reading about the pet.
This is a very powerful and personal routine and is the one
that gets more reaction than anything else in my working
repertoire.

Drawn fourward
Four drawings are peeked and revealed

Double or Nothin'.
A great gambling routine that makes use of the Mullica
feature of the wallet.

My Favorite Card Trick (Trade show trick)
This is the effect I use at every tradeshow I have ever been
booked at. It generates great foot flow to the stand and
helps you (and your client) to keep track of exactly hwo
good a job you are doing for them. Guarantees results and
repeat bookings. Also included are tips on how to sell your
services to the client. This trick is worth the whole cost
of the wallet

Kollosal Prediction
Four people are asked to write down a number they guess the
magician is thinking of. A prediction shows that they were
all wrong but in a very baffling way.

Full Circle
The magician talks about how simple shapes and symbols are
but also how they can stimulate very complex ideas, thoughts
and emotions. The business card has a circle printed at the
bottom of it. This can symbolize anything...a football, a
smiley face, a golf ball, a clock...pentagram.....lots of
different things. The spectator can now fill in the circle
with whatever they like that means something to them
personally.... The name of a football team, the time on a
clock, a happy face etc etc.

The magician then gives a cold reading based on what they
have done (up to four people)

Poker Faced Peek
Draw a circle on the business card. The person then puts a
smiley, sad, puzzled, etc expression on the circle to make a
face. They have to keep a straight face whilst you stare at
them and do a face reading.....small twitches in their face
muscles tell you everything you need to know. then you break
into the face they are thinking of. (or just draw it). A cue
sheet of smiley faces is included with the DVD.

Smiley Stooge
As with poker faced peek you peek the smiley symbol then
pull the face to a different spectator as a visual cue for
them to draw.

Clocking Off
The spectator fills in the circle with the hands of a clock.
A watch that has been on the side the whole time is turned
over to show the matching time. This is done using a
gimmicked watch. Conversely you can simply turn the watch
face yourself.

Derren's Whisper
A spectator writes down a word and it is placed aside.
Another spectator os given an envelope with written
instruciotns on how to read minds sealed inside. The second
spectator looks at this and can immediately read the first
spectators mind.

Squeek to Jermay
Same as "Derrens Whisper" but using the finger to nose with
squeeker gag as the "moment" the idea/word pops into their
head. Like Luke Jermay.

Foursight
The ultimate peek effect. One person draws a shape/symbol
one a favorite food, one a favorite place, one a word that
means something to them (think of a dog routine). Each is
revealed with a short cold-reading.

Association Whispers
The first person writes a word and shows it to the second
person. The second person then writes a word linked with the
first persons word and shows it to the third person etc
until the forth person has a word. This word is said aloud.
The magician then works his way backwards revealing each
persons word.

Chinese Fish Trumps
Like association whispers but instead of word association it
is using the last word as the first part of the next word.
EG. Spectator thinks of the word "fish" next person thinks
"tank" (fisk-tank), next person thinks "top" (tank-top),
final person thinks "trumps" (top trumps) hence the word
FISHTRUMPS.

Card Clone
Credit Card fraud is now so bad that pin numbers are created
by four different people and sent individually. Four people
write a one digit number and then shuffle them. You not only
get the numbers but also the correct order.

With kicker ending of carbon printed number inside envelope
(like the bank send you). This is done when trying to guess
the number by writing it down (you get it wrong) and instead
write the carbon thing. This is made from a glued up
envelope with carbon glued onto it and a see through plastic
window.

Two Cards to Wallet
Does what it says on the tin. One in Mullica, one in sleeve.

Bonus performance only footage of Marvelous matthew wright's
Late Night Mental Bar Set.


MY COMMENTS:
My first thought when I read the blurb (and before ordering
it from my distributor) was, "I have trouble remembering one
peek and now I have to remember four?" Well, yes. That's
true. But that is clearly not the fault of the product,
just the fault of the, ... ahem, user. On the other hand,
one has to ask if it's overkill and unnecessary to do four
simultaneous peeks?

The truth is that this is a well-made wallet that's quite
well thought out. As you can tell from the blurb, it's got
a few different ways to peek, including the namesake
four-way peek. It's got two different card to wallet
functions. Or, for mentalists, two different Confabulation
functions. There's also a function to allow a performer to
use a standard finger gimmick on a card tucked inside the
wallet. It also has a smaller, business card wallet which
can be used as a SUC wallet.

For comparison's sake, this wallet does not offer indexing
or the Shogun feature. It's also not a hip-style wallet,
but a 4" x 5" (approx.) wallet that you would carry in your
coat pocket.

I will note that the performance on the instructional DVD
shows that the four way peek can be very effective. It
certainly works for its creator, Matthew Wright. However,
that still brings me back to the original question of the
necessity of four simultaneous peeks.

I suppose the bottom line is whether or not I'd switch the
wallet I'm currently using for this one. No, I wouldn't
switch for this. I don't need four peeks and, as a
mentalist, I'd prefer to have a wallet that has, in
addition, at least one indexing system, if not more. This
one, as already stated, has none. Still, it's an
interesting idea. For completeness, I'll add that the
handsome box contains the wallet and two DVDs packed with
handling details and routine ideas.
