“Petroleum” allows you have a playing card chosen, signed and lost in the deck. You then take the deck and shuffle it face up into face down, clearly showing your audience how its mixed on both sides.
Then, without any funny or suspicious moves, the deck is spread out on the table. Your audience’s jaws will drop when they see that all of the cards are now facing the same way except one—which is revealed to be their signed card! Don’t believe us? Watch the trailer to see it for yourself.
The classic Triumph plot has NEVER been this clean or practical. But, “Petroleum” is also so much more than that. This specially-crafted gimmick enables you to also do a squeaky clean Oil & Water effect that starts with just a few red and black cards separating from each other before ending with a stunning full deck finale.
