I find it odd you spent so much time moaning about the format (and security) of the download that you glossed over the actual material. What did you think of the effects??

All I've learnt from your "review" is that you obviously have very little experience of purchasing downloads!

Iain.


I actually downloaded quite a few videos in the past. And you know what? None of them has been an ISO image - but I keep hoping. Smile
From a professional point of view (i. e. mine) it is absolutely no problem to offer DVDs as ISOs. It is a matter of bandwidth only, but at least in Germany this is no problem at all. Anyway, this was not my main concern, as you can see when you reread my posting. I only find it worth mentioning.
Same goes for the question of the copyright protection. I never mentioned security. Whether the download is encrypted or not does not concern me the least.
I explicitly do not want to review the quality of the tricks. This I'd like to leave to real experts. What I am complaining about is the quality of the explanations. Even if you choose to disagree. Smile

This looks really good! A couple questions:

1. Are there any effects here without gaffed cards?
2. Are there any effects here that can be done impromptu with a borrowed deck?

Thx,
KJ

KJ-

All 7 tricks use a regular deck. Now a couple routines need a one time work to your regular deck but it is only one time and a couple are 100% borrowed shuffle deck and lastly a couple would require a small set up a a few cards that would be very easy to get into on the fly.

I got to say, I REALLY like the shuffled/ borrowed deck routines on here... You should always have a routine ready to go when you need it and something like "Methodical" is perfect for that. Heck, setting up Ryan's version of Shuffle Board takes about 2 seconds and it's DEVIOUS.

It's been said a lot in here and other sections of the forums but Knocked Subconscious is also insanely good. You can gimmick the deck, use the deck (or just leave it set up) and set it up whenever your ready. ALSO, depending on the audience you can switch gears and do something totally different as well (I can think of two or three routines that use a similar set up minus the gimmick BUT the gimmick doesn't get in the way of those routines)... If you even just add the principle at work here... You'll have a ton of fun.

There is a ton of great thinking within this DVD and a lot I'm going to apply to my own work.

Think of doing a small borrowed deck set like:
It Cuts Deep
Methodical
Degree's of Board-dom (Keep the prediction in your wallet... if you need help PM me)

You have a SOLID set that can be done with a totally regular deck of cards on the spot (Set-up for Board-Dom and go into the other routines "checking to see if everything is there" and BOOM) What's the best part? It's sleightless, you can focus on presenting, allows you to play with the audience member(s) AND it's all really fooling material. By the end, they will think you can sense playing cards identity, read their pulse and predict their future before you met them.

On second thought... Don't think about doing that set... I want to be the only one doing it!

I just got through the video and I must say, this is one of the best card DVDs out! Really powerful and fun routines. Very powerful and easy card magic.

He uses a few methods that he says are really old. I imagine they must be old because I had never heard of them until now and I am familiar with a LOT of methods.

Not just one really good effect, but several are just fantastic!

OK Cool Cameron, I saw people saying they were having a hard time with their download in the beginning, so I thought maybe that's how you have to get it. I was wondering if I should start with ultimatate self working card tricks before I move into Miricles. I want some good tricks to use while I am working on my slights.

I don't have Ultimate Self Working DVD, but I do have .miracles without Moves. It is. Very good, but does require some simple knowledge of sleights for some of the tricks (nothing difficult, but not entirely self working). There is nothing onMiracles that a beginner couldn't pick up quite quickly, but if you wanted something completely without any moves then this isn't it. That said, let me say again: it's really, really good - and all are fairly simple (mechanically) to do.

No doubt, this is good. But to label it "Miracles without Moves" is a bit misleading. There are some "moves", thought not many. Maybe, "Miracles With Only Some Moves" but might have been an acceptable label.

Regards,
Mike

Thanks guys for the remarks. And thanks Terrible for clearing things up.

Insight: I was thinking the DVD should of been called Miracles with Minute moves because as you guys said why it was not completely moveless those on the DVDs were breaks , cutting type of moves and NOT DL's, control or false shuffles. But I suppose any action you do with a deck is consider a move right? Smile

TCB: Thanks for the interest. I agree with what Terrible said. The "moves" on the DVD are very easy but some routines could be presentational demanding for someone very new to card magic. But the ultimate self working series are super simple as well and completely moveless.
