Guys,

A question?... do you go to specific sections or do you push play all?....

were putting a lot of effort in making it flow in the play all mode....were also working hard on tightening all of the columns...

just curious

I watch individual segments. Usually the trick reviews first, then the move monkeys, then the feature interview, and finally the tricks and explanations. I watch the bloopers last.

I watch the whole thing... did I miss any segments? I don't watch it all in one day; with school and homework I don't have time. I watch my favorites first, then all of the other good stuff. I don't get to see the advertisements though.

EDIT: Oh, I forgot the main segments: Garrett Thomas, John Armstrong, Simon Lovell, Silly Billy. Yes, I watch them too.

It depends on when I get it.

If I've got an hour + to kill when I first get the disk, I'll watch the whole thing.

If I've got less than an hour, I'll usually watch the main interview 1st and then Simon's column, then the review columns, and then the rest of the columns.

I do play all the first time I watch it. Then to the explanations. If I'm going back to watch an old one, I'm a little more selective on which bits I watch.

The reason why I ask is there are thingsin ther that you wont see unless you hit play all...also the magazine is built for play all....like a tv show...thats where were going with this...we want it to be an experience

Koz,
I watch it in the play all setting first then go back to the chapters I liked the most.
(FYI: I fast-forward through the chapter(s) that I don't care for each issue).
PM me if you would like to know why.

You are doing a great job and I always feel that I am getting a great value.

I would like it if the explanations came on after the performances

Cenafreak.......the reason we don't put the explnations on right after the trick is because it really slows down the timeline of the magazine...

We hope that it works by going into the menus to watch these explanations and perfomances...were trying to make the magazine navigate easier...

another issue we thnk we have a solution for that has occured to me in the next issue (richard turner) is being able to identify the tricks that are taught... I think there is so much material in this issue that the viewer who watches the magazine in play all will wonder what some of the stuff is there for...it at times just looks like clip after clip with no reason....that we will resolve in the april issue....

we continue to strive to make this thing better....were adding some "new" segment in the next few months ... look for more improvements and a slicker look over the next few issues....

thanks

I watch it pretty much the same way that John does, in "Play All" mode. If my time is restricted then I go right into David Regal and Simon Lovell until I have time to come back to the full disc.

I do Play All but not before I pour a glass of wine and climb on the couch expecting an hour's entertainment. The last issue had me busting up laughing and giving me lots of good info. Loved it. I'm addicted now. Keep 'em coming!!

Play all, for me as well. I'll go back and re-watch specific interviews, etc at a later time. I'll echo what everbody said, Ted, you're putting out a great product.

I really enjoy the magazine and usually do a play-all and then go back to review things. The only section I don't like is Move Monkeys because I wish the moves were taught!

Other than that, BRAVO for a great magazing. Cuss words and all.

The moves in Move Mokeys... huh? The Flipper Muscle Pass, the Modified AG Spread Production, the Cascade Control, the Center Card Glimpse, the JM Click Pass, and the Thumb Pass were all taught in detail. Am I making a dumb mistake Kozmo?

The moves are not taught when you watch it as a play all. Similar to the magic effects, you have to go to the chapter.
