Thank you everyone who kindly voted for The Gift. I am very proud of it and I am glad so many people enjoy using it from the many messages I have received over the last year.

Congratulations also to Michael Murray for his award. A thoroughly nice chap who has taken mentalism to a whole new level. A leading creator in our art.

Well done to everyone else who has had their trick voted for. Even a few votes shows how much your trick is appreciated to be considered their trick of the year. That's just as impressive!

Thanks also to Jamie for running this annual competition for allowing us to show our appreciation of our favourite magic.

Thanks again everyone! Really appreciate it.

Congratulations to Angelo Carbone and Michael Murray.

Both of these men are constantly advancing magic with their brilliant contributions to our beloved art.

I'm honored to be included in this competition with all of the effects and creators that were nominated for these awards.
As I've said before, I respect the decision to exclude Inject from the final tally.

A BIG thanks to the generous help of Jamie Grant for hosting this fun competition year after year ... We LOVE you Jamie! Smile

All the best for 2018,

So yesterday I was stuck in an eight-hour traffic jam in the UK with the bad weather. With the prospect of having to abandon the car and wander through a blizzard to find shelter for the night my mind was not in a good place, to say the least. Then my mobile phone rang and a close friend of mine delivered the news that I had won the Thurston award. To say I was both honoured and humbled is an understatement. As a shy and introverted young man, magic gave me the self-confidence to speak to others and the magic community welcomed me with open arms. It changed my entire life for the better, keeps a roof over my head and provides food on the table for my children. I love what I do and do not think of it as work.

I wake up each morning feeling truly blessed and that is all down to you guys. Without the warmth, friendship and support of this community, I would not be where I am let alone who I am. I owe everything to you guys and thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Winning the book of the year a few years back filled me with pride, but the Thurston award means so much more to me than words can say.

Sending love and the deepest of thanks to all!

Michael X
As a mentalist you must always ask yourself what if! And throughout your life you should seek to ask and answer this question over and over again, only then will your wildest dreams become a reality!

I really want to thank Jamie Grant for undertaking this sometime unduly fraught exercise. I am old enough to remember when peer review of new magic effects was limited to word of mouth and the occasional magazine, and I am sure I am not alone in having purchased many, many, items of limited utility. Putting together this snapshot of what has been offered over the past year is a great way to celebrate the best makers and designers, all the while pointing the rest of us in the right direction for new material and acquisitions.
Bravo!

Congratulations Greg. I think we all know Inject 2.0 would have won hands down had it not been disqualified by a kangaroo court.

Also, well done to Angelo for effectively coming first from the remainder.

Lastly, congratulations to MM. Totally predictable given what an amazing guy he is.

Thank you for making me a runner up. 😲


You are also being disrespectful to Jamie, his competition and his decision (re Kangaroo Court).

Well done everyone who was nominated and congratulations to Angelo and Michael. And huge thanks to Jamie for taking the time and effort to do this every year. I use this thread as an excellent resource to decide what to spend my hard earned pounds on each year. I already had the wonderful Gift and was inspired to pick up Quiver which is brilliant. I'll also be looking into Michael's work. Keep it up Jamie and thanks again.
