While a lot of older magicians seem to despise Bushwood, I really enjoy his show and books and he's one of the reasons I got interested in magic.

I've always loved magic, but Scam School is the reason I decided to learn. A lot of people are upset about the invisible deck, but that's a VERY old trick in need of an update. It should really always be followed by a deck switch because "trick deck" is going to be the first theory from everyone.

Personally, I like Scam School. Of course, I may be biased by the episodes to which I've contributed. Smile

I can say that Scam School may have been the biggest factor in getting me into magic. I'm still very new to the art, but I routinely use things that I've learned from the show because they're really simple but they've got plenty of impact.

Scam school is great, as it gives you tricks which have a high impact, and it has helped me to start doing basic sleights and have to confidence to approach people to do magic. It's interesting and Brian makes it great.

My favorites are still matchbook related tricks, bar bet and pranks.
some of the good ones are: the Human Jack o lantern, Human chimney..
Maybe its because there is an element of danger, people are both afraid and engaged , and want to be involved when I do it.

I enjoy Scam School.. but.. my one problem with Brian is that he refuses to credit. It would be so easy to take an extra three or four seconds and give the source. He would also stay in better graces with the 'older' magicians by doing so.. JMHO

Crediting seems to be hit or miss, he occasionally gives some credit - but it isn't consistent.

I should mention that I do love the show and the feeling of the experience. It is also nice to see that it has gotten others to be interested in the art.

Scam school has something for everyone! I agree there is a lack of crediting and that should be addressed. I have purchased several products off the back of scamschool and have found quality shipping etc to be excellent and I live in the Uk.

I'm glad to see that, in the most recent episode to which I contributed, there is proper crediting included: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCz8xYLGmFY&t=34s

To be precise, there is correct mathematical crediting. Magicians have played around with card versions of Penney's Game before, but the credit here goes to the first mathematical study of the odds.

I've been a fan of Scam School and Brian for a long time. TBH, I think he is more of an asset to the community than a detriment. If anything, its a place for those who are curious to explore a bit and determine their level of interest.

I am 60 yrs. old, and I have been interested in magic since the mid-'70s. IMHO I consider Scam School as a voice of magic for a new generation. I like watching the show. Brian Brushwood has a ton of personality and really seems excited about performing. Hopefully he will do better about giving credit to others.
