Twisted Queens Review

Official Review

I have read some reviews that give this a lower rating because this is a simple switch. However, if you just use a little bit of creativity, this effect could be a powerful piece of your magic set.

This is a simple switch for a “twisted Queen” gimmick where the card is a Queen that has been restored in an unusual way.

In the Suggestions section, I will talk about how you can carry this card and incorporate it into a routine that is powerful and amazing.


What you get are ten misprinted Queens that are restored in a contorted way. The DVD talks about giving the card away as a souvenir. However, if you do that, you will need to re-purchase refills every ten performances. I would suggest that you don’t give out the card as a souvenir, but rather re-use the card for each performance.


If used in conjunction with another performance, this can really be a powerful addition to your arsenal.

Suggestions from the Reviewer

If you carry one of these mis-restored cards with you, you can combine it with another powerful routine for a true impossibility.

One of the most commonly named cards by women is the Queen of Hearts. Be prepared to present an effect based on any named card. A couple of options are the invisible deck, or perhaps even better, is “Open” by Marcus Eddie. Ask for a female participant to name any card. If she names the Queen of Hearts, you can do an invisible deck or “Open” routine and then go into this routine.

If you want to give out a souvenir without having to purchase refills every ten performances, perhaps you could hand out a copy of a hand-drawn mis-restored Queen of Hearts instead of the gimmick card.

Many performers carry a Queen of Hearts and an Ace of Spades on them specifically because these are the most commonly named cards by women and men. Instead of carrying a regular Queen of Hearts, carry this gimmick instead.

Manufacturer's Description:

If you were to tear apart a lady limb from limb, how would it look? It's quite a gruesome image, but imagine she were to put herself back together. Would she look the same afterwards?

Twisted Queens is a much simpler and direct approach to the classic torn and restored card effect. You focus on the idea of ripping apart the queens to really sink into the spectators hear, and their imagination is what restores the queen, in their own hands. It's easy to do and you'll get unbelievable reactions.
