|Topic: VHS Demos- 300 Magic Tricks and 9 Hours of Viewing|
I purchased [url=http://www.thetrickery.com/][b]The Trickery's[/b][/url] video catalogs. Each video is three hours long and demonstrates 100 magic tricks. Each video is $8.00 plus S&H.
Many of the tricks secrets are revealed as well as a simple example routine that can be expanded, but not all of them. The routines done are basic with a few good usable lines.
These videos give the beginner, and the experienced magician a good idea on the tricks that will/may suit him. We all heard mentioned tricks by names or magicians and could not remember that trick. These videos place a name and short movie demo on the item discussed here in the Magic Café.
The quality is typical homemade VHS quality, but for $8.00, 100 tricks, and three hours, they are worth it. Just look beyond the homemade video. There is also some corny pranks these guys at The Trickery put into the video to relieve the boredom on such a long video. A suggestion, mark the pricing guide with the numbers on the VHS recorder for quick find to specific tricks you like.
It's like being in a magic store for nine(9)hours and saying, "Can you demo that trick?" and not buying any at that moment. Try THAT in your favorite magic store!
By the way, enclosed in each video is a coupon for $5/$10 off if you purchase $50/$100 dollars worth of magic, so if you like a trick, you essentially get your money back for the videos. Not a bad deal here.
I did order from them and I got the order in quick time... 24 hours... (I do live in NJ and it is where The Trickery is located, 100 miles away.)
For about $30.00 you get to view 300 different magic tricks, laugh a little, speed forward on the VCR, and spend up to 9 hours in front of your TV! Your private magic store, with individual attention, but not two-way communications. I am not disappointed one bit! By the way, you can say, "Do that Again!" and rewind the tape, without a complaint from the management.
If you log on to their website, you can view demos of the products they are selling. Those demo's are examples of the demos on the videos, so you can get an idea of the VHS quality and presentation of what you will see on these videos. (The videos are slightly better and longer.)

|I got Dick Stoner's video catalog - 4 tapes for $20, 1 hr. per tape. I really liked having the tricks demoed for me, and didn't know the Trickery did this also. Thanks for the info!|
