"Routines with cards that you will use!"
=> I completely agree with that. Smile


ACES UP (Lin Searles): The four Aces are lost in the deck and they reappear on top!
=> Probably the easiest "in the deck" assembly which inspired me in many ways to create my own effects. One of my favorite effects in this dvd, previously published in another Aldo's book. One I would do if someone asks me to do a trick with a borrowed deck.

LOST AND FOUND (Nick Trost): You find a selected card under impossible conditions after the spectator shuffles the deck!
=> Nick Trost. NICK TROST!!! 'nuff said... Needs a little preparation but worth the price as Nick combines two of his favorite principles to offer an apparently "impossible" trick.

JOKER DILEMMA (Aldo Colombini): A card matches your prediction and the whole deck turns out to be all Jokers!
=> Sold by Aldo for 10$, previously for 15 (when I bought it). Clever thinking and the deck full of Jokers offers a solid and visual final impact. One of his bests. I still enjoy performing it.

CARD LIE SPELLER (Marty Kane): One of the best versions of the ‘Lie Detector’ theme!
=> A clever and easy to remember take on the lie detector. You just have to replace the selection in a certain position and that's (almost) it. The spectator may lie or tell the truth yet you will find his card.

A ‘LESSEN’ IN DISHONESTY (Peter Duffie): A packet of cards reveal a freely select card!
=> Very clever thinking like always with Peter but for some reasons, I don't really like it. I'm sure it has a certain impact on the audience, it's just I wouldn't enjoy performing it, so it's just a matter of taste actually.

MAKESHIFT (Karl Fulves): You take a card and it changes into a selected card in the hand of a spectator!
=> A quick effect with a funny subtlety to secretly bring the selection on top.

SEMIQUAVER (Michael De Marco): A prediction seems wrong and then surprisingly right with a stunning finale!
=> Down/Under deal haters, the trick is definitely not for you! The spectator takes a small packet from the top of the deck. At the end of a simple elimination process, you end up with a card which doesn't match your prediction. You use the value of the card you ended up with and you count it from the top of the deck and you find the predicted card. I like it!

JUMBO COINCIDENCE (Aldo Colombini): A series of coincidences with jumbo cards cut in halves! (Retails separately for $20!)
=> Again, I already owe this one and still happy with it. Clever principles put together to offer a very clean coincidence effect.

DALEY’S LAST SANDWICH (Cameron Francis): The Aces transpose in an impossible manner and then trap a selection!
=> A new and beautiful take on the famous Daley transposition effect. It has the same impact on me than Wave Stunner. A new kicker ending that makes the (already great) trick better that it was originally... in my opinion. ;-)

WAVE STUNNER (Cameron Francis): The classic “B-Wave” effect with a clever twist! (Retails separately for $10!)
=> Again, I already owe this one and I've already said that this is one of his best tricks as it is very easy to do and a great take on the B Wave plot. The prediction adds a kicker finish and is more logical than the "blue back and blank faces" original ending.

SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCE BY CAMERON FRANCIS (who performs his two effects).

=> Only 10$ !!! Buy it. Don't think about it. Just do it. You won't be disappointed even if you already owe some of the effects like me.

This series of $10 DVDs by Colombini is easily one of the best bargains around. But let's keep quiet about it.

Glad you like the dvd! Aldo's dvds don't get much attention on these forums. Probably because they're low key and not as flashy as most. But the content is fantastic... And I'm not just talking about my stuff. Smile

At this point, I've made a few other "guest appearances" on Aldo's projects. But we recently shot a dvd for my Twists & Turns packet trick (one of my personal favorites). Also, keep an eye out for a packet trick that Aldo produced for me called Nothing But The Truth. It's a lie detector trick that is really entertaining to a lay audience. It'll probably come out sometime next month.

On " A Host Of Surprises " DVD, by Aldo and Rachel Colombini , there are 8 tricks that are Card Tricks. My fave is Wild Card Ca$h. 2 Jokers are shown Front & Back. A bill (money) - could even be a prediction, appears between them. This can be purchased from their web site for just $10 (as are most of the items) @ http://www.wildcolombini.com Have a nice evening ! Rick G.

Cameron do you think this could be adapted to spanish? I'm unsure if to get this or not since where I live it's spanish speaking. I always get this problem with great spelling tricks :s

Rpascual, email Aldo. I believe he told me this will work in a lot of languages, including Spanish. I know he told me it works in Italian.

Just watched "Tricks & Treats" one of Aldo's new packet trick dvds. I perform and explain one trick on there as well. However the rest of the material is GOLD. One of Aldo's best packet trick dvds to date. Chock full of good stuff.

Aldo and Rachel dvds are great...probably if they be reviewed they receive bad reviews because the production value are not the best, but the magic justifies that!
