Can someone comment on this DVD. I know how to do Mickey D's Aces. I want to know if this DVD is worth the price for the extra vanishes on it. Doe's anyone have this and how would they rate it.

Thanks.

I saw nothing new on this DVD. I'm wondering why this was even released.

MagicChris. What about the advertising that says a dozen new ways to vanish the aces? Do you have the DVD? So you the bottom line is you would not recommend the DVD?

Thanks edh

I have the DVD and I didn't see anything new. If you never did the routine, then sure, it would be fine. It's inexpensive and comes with the cards.

If you really want to see a cool version, look for a tape of Frank Garcia. Tough to find, but worth the effort.

Magiguy, evolve629, thanks for your response. I will look into the Frank Garcia tape. Is this a VHS tape or a DVD?

evolve629, I read the review. Thanks for all your responses. I appreciate your opinions on this DVD. I want to make sure that what the DVD contains is what I'm looking for.

As I have said I do Mac's Aces. And what I was looking for is different ways to transform the aces into indifferent cards.

Again thanks for all your help.

I watched it again. He uses Lee Ashers Asher Twist ( with credit) and the Erdnase move ( when you do a color change ).

RE: Garcia's version... I know it's on VHS but you'll probably find a DVD version out there as well. Check out the "Stars of Magic" series. If you hit a brick wall, PM me and I will send you the address of a guy who has (sells) tape of almost everyone.

Daryl has a clever version called Jumping Jacks.

For Daryl's version, I understand that the spectator does the magic. This sounds quite enticing (albeit potentially dangerous). Obviously the magician has to instruct the spectator what to do. My question is this... are you just taking them through the steps to perform the standard McDonald's Aces routine, or is it a unique routine? In other words, if I already perform McDonald's Aces, is "Jumping Jacks" a worthwhile purchase or is it really the same effect?

Anyone out there with knowledge of Daryl's Jumping Jacks version? Any insights to clarify my question above would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I would say if you don't do the M Aces this would be a great DVD to get. Fun puts out a lot of informative info at a lesser price than others. Material may not be new...but if you don't know it...then it is new to you!
