What is the difference of First Wow and the Second Wow?
because I don't want to buy Wow 2.0 if its has almost similar effect to the first wow.
Thank you...

There are two versions of WOW 2.0 I guess. One if facing up and the other one is facing down.

The original WOW (which is GREAT) is a face up card whereas 2.0 shows the back of a card (red or blue depending on which you order). Both are fantastic and have unlimited possibilities. I would get Wow 2.0 from World Magic as it comes with an extra DVD by Craig Petty and David Penn with some additional, and I might add, great ideas. In my mind, absolutely mind boggling and VERY visual. I would also go for the added expense of investing in the un-gimmicked Wow sleeve. Please NOTE: Wow 2.0 is not an improved version of the original Wow per say, but just a different alternative. Both are great in their own application.

OK I have a goofy question - just got WOW 2 (face down) and wanted to confirm how the extra little plastic "sleeve" with the adhesive on either side should be applied as I don't want to screw it up.

I'm assuming it is for the card to be inserted in between the main sleeve and the extra plastic sleeve - right?

Which side does this adhesive plastic sleeve go on?

I dunno, I didn't see it on the DVD or any instructions...

Thanks folks!

I'm assuming that you don't have the original so I can easily see your confusion as it's never covered in the DVD, or with any written instructions. I think that was a terrible oversight, but I've had the original for a long time.

I haven't placed the sleeve on mine, but if you notice that there are removable white strips on the sleeve. The sleeve has adhesive on it and it should be placed on the opposite side of the "Back Card" side. I would suggest that you first place a very small amount of isopropyl alcohol on a soft cloth and clean the edges where the adhesive will be. Make sure you have it aligned properly as once its on....its on to stay and cannot be reapplied. If you choose to do this you can than, if you so wish and as I did a long time ago, purchase the non-gimmicked sleeve which will them match the one you have with the sleeve on it. Actually, I'm not at all too sure if there is a non-gimmicked sleeve that will match the Wow 2 that does not have the sleeve on it.

THANK YOU!!!

I ordered a non-gimmick sleeve from Penguin and I will wait until it arrives before applying the sleeve as of course I want them to match up. I don't know if that sleeve will match so better to hold off.

It makes me feel better knowing I didn't miss something - I was just like "what is this extra piece of plastic for?"

Best to you - I will post again here once I get the non gimmick sleeve and report back.

UPDATE!!!

Just spole with Keisha at Penguin and she confirms that the NON-GIMMICK Wow 2 DOES include the extra clear card holder and it is PRE-INSTALLED. So all should match nicely.

Hope this helps others who are curious.

I just wonder if the ungimmick can be separate to two parts as the gimmick one. Because I want to only use the separate part, if the ungimmick one can not be separted, it can not be same for examination.

Exactly the same thing that crossed my mind. The "original" ungimmicked sleeve is not the same as the Wow 2 sleeve. Also, for some reason I was under the assumption that if you chose to use the additional sleeve (to make it work like the original Wow) that it would be removable. Such is not the case as once you place it on, it’s there to stay! I pre-ordered mine from World Magic so as to get the extra DVD by Craig Petty and David Penn. Some great routines on it but they constantly refer to having the ungimmicked sleeve. Obviously, there is not much sense in having an ungimmicked sleeve if it does not match the gimmicked one and something they failed to mention for some reason. I imagine the best thing to do is place on the sleeve and be done with it, but there might be some who do not wish to do so. Then again, there might very well be an ungimmicked Wow 2 available but I so far I’ve been unable to find it.

That is right. If there is a ungimmicked Wow 2 , that will be great. But if not I think I will just use it unseparately.

Just got the un-gimmicked WOW2 today and as stated prior, it DOES have the extra card holder with adhesive already attached.

Well then, its not an exact un-gimmicked match to WOW 2 as WOW 2 does not have the sleeve attached. It is simply the un-gimmicked original WOW as I knew it would be, and have had as soon as they came out. However, today I just gave in and attached the sleeve to the WOW2 and got it over with. Anyway, it's much more versatile that way so all is well.

I have the original WOW (that displays a Joker) which does not include any DVD back then. I was wondering if there are more than 1 routine taught in the new DVD?

WOW2 includes a DVD with some nice routines. Also, if you order it from World Magic it includes a companion DVD by David Penn and Craig Petty with some great routines. I'm not really sure, but you may be able to get that DVD separately from World Magic if you purchase WOW2 from another dealer.

Two times? Must be a custom-made but it is a good idea!

I wish WOW 2 face up is not this high so I can buy it. Very nice gimmick and it's open for creativity.

That's because I seriously doubt such an animal exists and I think he was just trying to "WOW" you! Knowing how it works its very doubtful that it could have two "patterns" as it were. I imagine it could be done, but being able to precisely control the proper alignment would be very difficult to say the least. For those that have it I'm sure you know what I'm referring to.

It could be done but it would be thicker I guess.

Btw, for the face up version, are there two type of colors? I've seen the demo in red back and Chris Ballinger also showed the one with the blue back.

Can someone confirm this?
