I think this release is actually pretty good. No, it's not necessarily going to be like the trailer every time, but it's 45 minutes of solid thinking on strategies for jazzing.

I'm going to review it more extensively on the next episode of my podcast. Should be out this evening (Monday night US time).

Again, I think, and agree with Matt, that there's a lot to like about it. Especially for 15 bucks. That I like something someone else doesn't, doesn't make it objectively good, just as others not liking it doesn't make it objectively bad.

Yeah, it's definitely not a CAAN, and you are correct that it being advertised as such is no good. It's more of a take on Dai Vernon's TTTCBE. It should have been sold as such.

Nonetheless, I learned a few things from it. Admittedly, I haven't read the Berglas Effects book (sadly is out of print).

I also think it's also perhaps worth pointing out that this is a $15 download.


Yeah. That's part of what's annoying me about this. I want to get it. I'm interested in his thoughts on jazzing/TTCBE... but I'm trying not to support false advertising, so I'm going to continue to say no. I'd happily spend $15 if it had been advertised accurately. But the only way to get more effects marketed honestly is to not buy the ones that weren't.

I went a little more in depth in my podcast:

The review starts at about 1:11:30, but the rest of the show is a really great interview with Drew Backenstoss so might as well listen to the whole thing Smile

I just started watching, and yes, the first thing he literally says "It's my take on TTCBE"
So yeah.. nothing really new here

Can this be performed by the average magician or does it require a lot of skill?

It's more about thinking on your feet than sleight of hand. An important facet of the effect requires a skill that may take a little practice (but is easier than it sounds IMO).

It does not require a lot of skill, although it requires a lot of experience (in my opinion)

Since it's his take on the TTCBE, if you want to get out of certain situations, you need fast thinking and that comes with experience

I thought this was very lack-lustre... mainly because Jermay's GAME is far better...

3/10

needed much better blurb too....

Game requires a gimmick, though. And it's twice the price.

Agreed that it's a much more reliable (and better) effect though.
