Folks,

we have a FREE bonus download for anyone who has purchased the ULTIMATE SELF WORKING CARD TRICKS DVD. the mutant brain that is Liam Montier, has come up with a killer idea for a way to use Aldo Colombini's Contact Colors to link immediately into another killer routine. it allows you to perform two of the strongest pieces of magic ever created in ONE routine. it's a GREAT idea.

and you can download the video instructions for free. to get the download link please email me at info@bigblindmedia.com and make the subject line of the email the THIRD word on the small print at the bottom of the DVD disc itself. (so open the DVD case, look at the tiny words at the bottom of the disc and quote the 3rd word you see).
AWESOMENESS!


Really nice little download. Ever so much thanks for adding even more value to the best DVD for the money out there! Steve

That's great news Smile. E-mail sent!

I didn't have the time yet to view all the tricks but the ones I did see (first 5 or so) were absolutely great. They are indeed self working, no sleights necessary, not even (a lot of) memory work involved. You are also taught some very easy to do 'moves' (I don't even call them 'sleights') that make a great routine even better. For example there's one false cut I'm using all the time now ... so simple yet so deceptive.

Most tricks (well from the ones I saw) have the spectators involved and that's always good for me.

The teaching is top notch. Very clear and easy to follow. Great quality too, filmed professionaly.

All I hoped this DVD would be has become reality. Absolutely a MUST HAVE for every hobbyist like me, but I believe most professionals will also use one or more tricks on the DVD. You will fool both laymen and magicians.
Probably my best magic DVD-purchase ever. You WILL use some of the routines, trust me.

One more thing. There are a lot of youtube video's that teach card tricks (let's face it, they sometimes even are very good) - and I'm not going to be a hypocrite so yes ... I've watched a few of them. The good news however is that as far as I know (I haven't really searched to be honest) the routines and tricks on this DVD have been kept a real secret up untill this release. So yes ... the DVD is definately worth it's money! You will have tricks in your hands that almost no one knows, and that's a huge benefit especially if you're a professional magician!

[EDIT]Ok, just got my link sent by e-mail (very fast, thank you!). All I can say is it gave me a BIG smile on my face when I heard the words &"é#@ Smile when I watched it! It gave me that well known feeling of "now why didn't I think of that!?" Smile
And yes, the follow op trick is also VERY easy to do! Another spectator can do the 'follow up' so there are even more people involved.
I'd like to go in detail but I'm not going to say anything else because that would be considered revealing. You'll LOVE it. I now have one routine that will last a relatively very long time with a good presentation - maybe I should put some serious effort in magic and become semi-professional afterall Smile

Rachel and Amy were fantastic spectators!

But, seriously, I've watched some of this and at least a few things will go into my performance repertoire.


Don't know where I got Rachel from- I realize now that it's Stacey that I'm in love with! I'm going to blame it on the British accents!

Color Contact by Aldo Colombi is an awesome self-working card trick, collected inside this Ultimate Self Working Card Tricks DVD.

No difficult set up is needed. The key reason it is awesome because it doesn't only produced one effect but three at one go. And, these three really caught your spectator off guard. Just when your spectators thought that you are done with your magic you surprised them another effect then another. After the first effect, you found your spectator's selected card. I like the part that you seem to force your spectator's card yet you let him really feel that he is selecting it freely. After the first effect, you have your second effect. You produced 4 aces. When your spectators thought it is really over, you showed them yet another unexpected effect. All the red colored cards are found under the red aces and the black colored cards are found under the black aces! I encouraged you to watch the trailer to appreciate the devil.

Aldo has a good story and motivation behind this card trick. The story is about his lucky card and he tells his spectators why it is a lucky card for him from these 3 effects. Very good story.

Why self-working trick? Isn't self-working trick for beginners or hobbyists? I agreed that some self-working tricks are not good but there are some that are beautiful and powerful. Color Contact is one of these beautiful and powerful magic!

I believe having these powerful self-working magic in your repertoire is a gem. Not everyday is a Sunday and not every time you are in your performance best. Thus, having them with you is like having a good insurance coverage. When you begin with self-working tricks, you are building up your confidence and control over the rest of your whole show as well.

Immediately after watching the tutorial, I am ready to include Color Contact in my own performance repertoire within 1 to 2 minutes. But, no worry, I don't think your spectators can easily see through how Color Cotact is done.

Not only here on the Café, but elewhere, too, I hear nothing but positive about this product. I'm the kind who when I think "self working" I think boring. (Usually) but I'm wrong and I really am going to put this on my A list.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

I bought this a couple of months ago and am very pleased. The production quality is excellent and the effects are amazing. I must admit, I am getting a little tired of the spinning titles (those who have the DVD will understand) but that's a pretty minor point. I do like how the DVD emphasizes that although the effects may be working, that doesn't mean that they shouldn't be practiced. As I've watched the DVD, I keep thinking about how cool it would be to have some special decks made up but then I look at the cost and my wife keeps mumbling something about a mortgage. Personally, I think her priorities are skewed but that's must my opinion.

I like Ultimate Self Working Card Tricks very much, especially Shufflebored.

With either a smartphone or tablet like iphone or ipad, you can do this trick alone. To add some more " wow ", you may like to get Ask Alexander deck.

I begin the presentation by saying that almost everybody used smartphones and tablets nowadays. This is because they are so useful. You can use them to play games, watch movies and find out where sells the best laksa in Singapore. Some even use them to tell fortunes. And, I have downloaded an app for a prediction.

About how to do the trick, please refer to the DVD.

Shufflebored can be done alone because it is 1 trick with 4 awesome predictions. I have created 5 pictures that shows these predictions. PM me if you would like the pictures and I will email you free.Check out the pictures that show the 5 predictions. Time to make some contribution for Magic Café members who have been always great help for me.

After you have 2 spectators messed up your deck, you can disclose the predictions with the pictures one by one. There are total 4 predictions:-
1st prediction - there are 21 cards facedown from the deck,
2nd prediction - 9 cards are red out of the 21 cards,
3rd prediction - all black are black,
4th prediction - except the 2 of clubs.

I have created a Chinese version as well.

This can be used for close up or on stage. You may use iPad or iPhone.

Nobody can say you are using technology and not performing magic because you are using the smartphones as a supplement, it is still how the deck is messed up and produced the 4 predictions. And, your spectators know it very clearly from this presentation.

Let me know if you like this presentation.
