And what's with all of the 3DVD sets? Is there something inherently more attractive to 3 than 2 or 4?

Ah, the power of 3. We use it on audiences, no reason it shouldn't be used on us.

I thought, at one time, Justin Miller was also in on this project. That might be the third, but they do not mention Justin in their advert.

No I was not part of this project.

Now onto the cards. I have a deck, and I will tell you this the moment I got mine I was INSTANTLY IMPRESSED with what D:G and W:H came up with. These are REAL worker routines and they are the most unique gaff cards that have ever come out of a printing company. I have no ties with E anymore so I am not an E boy here to stir you guys up. THE truth is that these cards are something special and the magic that will be created with these cards will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for your on-looking audiences.

Well... In my opinion the loops DVDs didn't warrant a three disk release either.
You can't tell me that loops could not have fit on a single release.

It just happened that there where three magicians ..so it fit.
And it fit E's marketing plans quite nicely I'm sure.

With this, There are only two people and they are on each disk together.
So.. the splitting up seems to be financially motivated. Unless..As I said before..Theres a lot of content.

I like the way the cards look. Just looking a the pics. online is giving me a few ideas. Like I said, I'd love to get the cards...The DVDs, Not so much.

The effects on the DVD and lecture notes are far beyond your abilities. (They require mastery of the mechanic's grip.) It would only break your heart.

Like many others we say we hate Ellusionist.com but we just need every effect that comes there way...I think the cards look good especially the color changing card routine they have...Personally I think the price is high because of the VH1 magic reallity show...its' going to be Ellusionist this and Ellusionist that...and they either want the laymen to spend money on easier less expensive effects then the more technical stuff which will turn a newbie off and never buy from Ellusionist again because its pricey and too difficult...I think I'll wait until the dvd's are posted on the Café at a resonable price.....i'm surprised Ellusionist didn't give the Café a special deal but that's neither here or there....

I really don't think that the guys over at E like the café to well.
No opinions are really suppressed here and they don't really like that.
E wants to turn the whole world on to their site. Layman and magician alike, The money spends the same.

But all this is WAY off subject. Lets just talk about the deck and DVDs.
Myself I think I'll wait until a few people review all of this.
You never know... It might be a really great package. Of course...the opposite could be true as well.

I thought the Loops 3 DVD set was worth the money. I always thought Brad and his guys have done good work and have out out quality products.

I didn't. they could have put all the stuff on one dvd and charged 30 - 40 but instead made it a set.

some of the material was very very redundant

Thank God we have a place like the Café. I will wait to read the reviews. However, this will mean that I will miss my chance to get an uncut sheet autographed by DG & WH, or a autographed deck of cards as a bonus for anyone who orders within an hour of the official release date. (plug, plug,) lol

Does anyone know if that's gauranteed, or if you just have a chance if you order within the hour?

It is just a "chance", so you might get an uncut sheet, a signed deck or nothing extra at all. Wonder which is most likely?

Yay!(lol) I think I'll probally pass on this one. I'm not a big fan of those kind of marketing tactics. Plus, I already have a few gaffed decks from ellusionist(shame on me) and don't ever use them. They are nice to look at though.

I would say just a chance.

My guess is if you truly want a sheet or signed deck go ahead and buy the full set. I don't see that many people jumping for the full set based on the price and previous products put out by E.

No, thanks(lol) I was only joking about wanting an autographed deck or uncut sheet. I agree with you, I don't see too many people jumping on it for the chance of it. I'm curious to see the total length of all 3 DVD's, and if there is any real justification for having three DVD's or if it's just taking advantage of people with a quick cash grab. I think that's why they are having the 1 hour bonus thing. To get as many sales as possible before the reviews are in.

I chuckled when I saw the Linking card effect using the gaffed card. Pretty creative thinking on that Paul Harris plot!
