Message: Posted by: Peo Olsson (Jan 27, 2008 11:39PM)
A new DVD on card magic, with easy-to-do and commercial routines.

The contents include:
Impulse (Peter Duffie) -- A three-phase routine with a finale that will blow their heads off. A card changes place with another card with a hole.
Remember/Forget (Mike Rogers) -- A quickie but so commercial where a card is revealed under a spectator's finger.
A Bunch of Blarney (Aldo Colombini) -- The classic plot of the Lie Detector revealing a selected card and the four Aces.
Composition (Aldo Colombini) -- Incredible routine with a lot of surprises. A closing effect!
Wild Mix (Aldo Colombini) -- Stand up magic at its best. The classic Wild Card Theme performed entirely in your hands.
Shinding (Aldo Colombini) -- An incredible routine with four black and four red cards with the final appearance of the four aces.
Tossed Salad (Aldo Colombini) -- An Oil and Water Effect using regular cards where at the end all the cards become black.
Splitting Hairs (Aldo Colombini) -- A four splits into two Deuces and they split into the four aces.
Sorcerer's Surprise (Rachel Colombini) -- Two packets of cards with Harry Potter's pictures are shuffled by a spectator and at the end all the cards match. Great stuff!

$9.95 from Hocus Pocus

Anybody got this one, and can make any coment on it?

Don't have it but Peter Duffie's "Impulse" is a killer effect! Very practical. Might be worth the price of the dvd alone.

I like the idea behind this. 10 tricks on a dvd for 10 bucks. If you like watching dvd's as opposed to reading books/ebooks, I am sure this is worth more than its value.

Aldo is currently selling everything he puts out at ten bucks. He has some real bargins out there right now. Including a couple of tricks by yours truly :)

I haven't seen all of Aldo's works, but I do have a book of his called Impact, which is sweet. Of course everything that Cameron touches turns to gold, so you can't go wrong their either.

Here is another one: Crazy For Cards

This is a new DVD with exciting and outstanding card magic. It contains: MOUSE TRAP (Aldo Colombini): A funny trick involving the capture of a ‘mouse’ (Ace of Spades) who leaves a card (cheese) full of holes. UNIVERSALS (Roy Walton): A clever version of the standard plot, where a Joker takes the identity of three freely selected cards. THE SHOOTIST (Radagast): A versatile manipulation where a card is shot from the deck and caught in mid air with the hand. TELL ME WHEN TO STOP (Brian Berry): You reveal a selected card at the ‘stop’ of a spectator. UNBEATABLE (Aldo Colombini): A clever and easy routine you will enjoy performing. POINT BLANK ASSEMBLY (Peter Duffie): A three-phase routine where four-of-a-kind assemble twice and then all the cards become blank. TRIUMPHANT TRIUMPH (Henry Evans): The world champion personally shows an amazing version of the triumph. UNCANNY KINGS (Vanni Pulé): Great packet trick where regular Kings change into different kinds of Kings….including King Kong! FOLLOW THE SIGN (Peter Duffie): The four Aces follow… the spectators (or vice versa?). CAVATINA (Aldo Colombini): Two Jokers (counselors) pair up Queens and Kings.

The routines are performed by Aldo with special guest appearances by world champion HENRY EVANS and RADAGAST. A great DVD which is a MUST for you!

Also $9.95 from Hocus Pocus

And I repeat my queston again: Does anybody have those and if so can tell if they are good or bad?

I went to Aldo's website and could not find Card Festival...I did see the above mentioned Crazy For Cards...

It's not listed on his sight yet. Probably soon as he usually updates his products at the beginning of every month.

And thanks for the kind words, Donny.

I think Aldo now has about half a dozen $10 DVD's out. They are great value when you consider some of the effects on the ones mentioned here sold individually for around the same price or more (the Peter Duffie ones for instance, do a search on Point Blank Assembly and you'll still find some dealers carrying it, including Aldo).

The difference is, if you need special cards, you have to obtain your own if you learn it from the DVD, and that might prove more expensive than if you bought a specific effect on its own.

Of course, those that have been around magic awhile and like packet tricks may have what they need.
