Topic: New product from Nobody Knows?
Message: Posted by: JustJoshinMagic (Sep 18, 2019 02:21PM)
Nobody Knows has a new release coming up on the 26th. They sent 50 people clues, and while I was one of them, frankly Iím stumped. No idea what it might be. That being said, Iím pumped based on their past release. Theyíre doing a live launch on their site.

We were sent a neapolitan space ice cream sandwich if anyone has any ideas what that could mean.

Neapolitan space age ice cream sandwich ...

Guess it means it is something new and with the ice cream making it pretty cool.

I for one am hoping space is a very remote place!
But even if it were that, although on one hand I would be pleased I would also be bummed because it will probably cost $199.00 and you know they could have just enabled it to work with a $29.00 one that is already readily available.

But my guess is that it is just a new sport style of watch, or even simply a new line of watch bands.
I know, I know, but NK has a reputation for a lot of hype equaled only by the disappointment when you find out what the new thing they are offering is.
Sorry if I sound jaded or pessimistic, but when it comes to NK, I am.

I wish they would stop referring to the recipients of the ice creams as "random". In no way was it random. A lot were sent to well known magicians with a large online following with the hopes they would advertise for them.... and a lot did.

It's a reference to the fact that this will be the "Flavor of the Month"effect. Meaning that magicians will purchase and play with until the following month when a new trick will be released and this one can be put into their magic junk drawer with all the other previous flavor of the months...

I always find these blanket statements to be rather silly.
First of all, they are usually made with an air of superiority and condescension.
But mainly I feel like ďso whatĒ. Why do you care what other people spend their money on?

The vast majority of Cafť members are hobbyists and enthusiasts and trying new things and learning new things are a large part of the enjoyment of the hobby.
Not to mention that that is really what drives the magic economy and without which there would be far fewer creators and effects released.
Now before anyone exclaims that having far fewer releases would be a good thing, it actually wouldnít be. Sure, a lot of junk gets mixed in with the good releases but overall it is almost a certainty that many of the very best releases wouldnít exist either.

Now maybe you are the type that thinks that owning a couple good books such as Stars of Magic is all one should need for a lifetime of magical learning, and that is totally fine if that is what suits YOU, but why pass judgement on everyone else who may feel differently?
Never understood why some people think that everyone should behave exactly the same as they do.

And to make such a comment in this thread is especially inappropriate because you have no idea what the release will be. Itís funny, because I was admittedly pessimistic in my previous post in this thread but your comment above is even more pessimistic than mine!

I wasn't one of the people who got a clue. Actually, a lot of people will say that I don't have a clue. Anyway, if space is such a remote place to be, I'm going to be very interested in what the release is. When I asked them about a possibility about this at Magic Live, they did say that it was something that they were working on.

Keeping my fingers crossed,

I couldn't agree more. Forget the hype for a second. One they don't look anything special nor do they have custom court cards. Even with that asside they are issuing them in the same year with brand new Jerry's Nuggets and Butterfly campaigns. I really don't see the point.

Also what's with the video of the cards on the way to space. Who cares? I don't really get it tbh.

They do plant a tree for every deck produced. Good for them! Others should follow that!

Unbelievable! Itís worse than I even imagined!
Please tell me there is something else coming. That was surely just an ill-conceived joke before the real reveal comes.

They should have been handing these decks out as a promotional item at their Magic Live booth. What will their next new product be...pens with their logo on them?

Iím sure the T boys are getting quite a kick out of this and laughing their asses off. No one on their team could have legitimately believed the way this was hyped and released was a good idea. They definitely have a sadistic streak and seem to get pleasure out of hyping and then purposely disappointing their supporters. This is the exact response they were hoping for IMO.

Have to agree all the hype for yet another deck of cards

Itís bad enough to have a message from Steve brooks about another deck of cards every other day

But I would have expected better than this !!
Message: Posted by: psychod (Sep 26, 2019 02:34PM)
If it was April 1st, I think it might be an interesting prank. As it is, they've lost a lot of credibility in my book. When they try to build up anticipation for something and then it's really a major letdown (in my opinion), they are really going to have to do something amazing for me to trust their hype again! I know, a lot of dealers/creators hype things up a bit but at least it's mostly products that may have the potential to be amazing. Another new deck of cards...not so much!

I am still waiting for the ďjust jokingĒ e-mail. Even if they decided to make and release a deck of cards, who would want this one? You would never use these in performance.

Spectator: Whatís up with the Nobody Knows cards? Whatís that?

Magician: Oh, thatís the name of the company that sold me the magic watch that I just used on you. Thatís their logo. They shot a deck of these into space!

Spectator: (walking away)

I donít even see card collectors who donít perform having any interest in these.

It is a great idea to use this deck and the T-Watch in the same performance.
So, when they search for the deck, they can also find the Watch as a bonus.

Seems the success with the watch (i regret I listen to the ekaterina review and buyed turner w. instead of mirandas the w.) was too much for some kid souls.
now they sell their logo printed on an ordinary - or better bad - deck and believe its cool.

Message: Posted by: patapon (Sep 28, 2019 11:32AM)
At which point will the T-Boys actually realize that NOBODY CARES about their latest product?

I'm done with them, as are many of you.

This cements their place in magic history as a "one-hit-wonder"... may they RIP, and deservedly so, since they clearly have no clue how to relate to their once loyal hoard of customers.

No updates, No commitments, No nothing on their product. Instead, raise everybody's expectations and wastes everybody's time hyping up their new look website and now playing cards.

Since they must be laughing at how stupid their customers are, lapping up everything they throw at us, let us, who have spent our hard earned money, have the last laugh... I am NEVER going to recommend buying from them, and for those of you looking for a remote, may you all buy JM's watch right away and not wait around like fools for a product that will never come at a price that you want.

Not true. In most cases the customer is right, but not always. Most of the people on the Cafť give there option even if they don't have the product. You will always have haters. Some people just like to jump on the band wagon and talk crap.

But the problem is Mr. Effecto that you did not state that in your original scathing post. You lumped EVERYONE into the same category, while I believe most of the comments (and quite possibly ALL of them) were from actual owners of the watch. Furthermore, I'm not sure how you would know who owns it and who doesn't. Not to mention the fact that I have seen a fair number of complaints coming from you over the years so just because you disagree in this particular case you then feel it is perfectly fine to come on here and scold everyone who shared an option (oops, I mean opinion.) Honestly, I think your post was the most whiny and childish (not to mention disrespectful) of them all. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
