Well after watching the 3 vidioes ,seems to be a stack of sorts and 3 cards before, after the picked one, think the Memory thing on this is gonna blow it for me ?,wondering if I will get this by Christmas pre order from Alakazam ?.

Itís not a memorized deck per se. Thereís something I canít reveal openly that makes it much much much easier. Did you watch the trailer? A layman had this down in 10 minutes, literally. This is exactly why we didnít put the full performance in the trailer. We knew people would immediately assume itís a complicated memory thing. It really isnít. It does involve SOME memory but anyone Iíve shown it to had it down in less than 15 minutes.


Excellent BSpidey thank you for clearing the Memory thing up

Spidey .there seems to be an issue with the sound on the tutorial from Murphyís Magic when you start from the introduction you have sound, but if you try to advance to another chapter you lose sound, I have tried this on different devices with the same problem so I would think itís a problem on Murphyís end. This is a great magic utility, thank you for your inspiration and teaching.

I don't get all this discussion about whether there's memory or no memory... the suggestion being that the offering is somehow less than desirable if it "might" require just a little bit of effort to perform.

We're magicians. Not everything is plug and play. Some things are worth putting in the effort...

I think the lesson here is that if you create something that requires a bit of brainpower to pull off, you'll be the one lone original magician performing it.

Bully for you then, sounds like you have a perfect Memory and us older ones have to suck it up and get on with it, power to your all in sarcastic Brain power awesomeness,simple questions are asked, what don't you get on a question of Memory and performance, why you don't think we al put in our Best ?.

A.B.See arrived today. It's excellent. It's unique and it's very clever. My memory is bad, but this is very easy. It's true: in 10-15 minutes you'll be able to do it. Ingenious. I'm sure I'll use this a lot.

I use a mem deck, have Redford's Photographic Deck, as well as Spellman's Gallery Deck, and find value in all of them, so was a bit unsure of how useful AB See would be, but after watching Steve Faulkner's review, and reading Jheff's review as well, my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to take the plunge. The deck arrived yesterday, and after watching the instruction video, and playing with the cards a bit -- I'm so happy I ordered this!! It is a clever principle and Spidey, like others have said, is a terrific teacher. Not only does he cover 6 or so effects, but there's also a lengthy section on various techniques (false cuts and shuffles) that work well with this kind of deck. I excited to try out a few of the routines over the holidays!

Ordered this after seeing Steve's review. These tie in with my 3 year daughter as we have a few sets of flash cards for her.
Perfect for when someone is over and I can use these 👍🏻

Just contacted the UK dealer I ordered from who advised me the stock comes from the manufacturer and it is not likely to come any time soon. A disappointment.

Memory work? Not specifically any more than when I was four years old and learned my ABCíS ALPHABET SONG.

I just came home to my mail, and I opened this up and sat down and watched the tutorial. Really clever stuff here, and honestly very well made.

Spidey, I do feel like a little more could have been added in since this deck was created from the ground up. Maybe some marked backs. Perhaps something that could have resulted in a color separation (like Out of this World). The cards backgrounds could have been incorporated for color divinations that donít rely on the built in method.

Anyway. Great product. Anyone worried about the memorization is spending too much time worrying about nothing.

We threw around the idea of marking the backs but I settled on refusing because I wanted the back to be beyond simple with nothing to see even instinctively. And Iím glad I did, the fact that it is NOT in anyway marked seems to be impressing a lot of the workers who feel comfortable handing it to even the smartest spectators or magicians for examination with absolutely no worries. I didnít want to do seperation effects I didnít want anything that felt card tricky. I wanted a direct and killer divination tool and thatís what I think we have here. Iím not saying we wonít eventually make a marked version but to me this is great. And the method stands on its own. Just my opinion 😊 glad youíre enjoying it.

Mine arrived today from Alakazam and I really like it.
I did spot the method when asked to pause the instruction video but this is so good.
This will be getting used a lot over the Christmas period.

Looks like it is sold out everywhere!
But I found out that a dealer in Europe seems to have a few left, so I a put in an order, and just now got a message that it is on his way!

But it also says:
'Only a few items available!'
I have got a couple of items from them with no problem at all! Recommended German dealer.

Yes, but I saw that Neil talkes about a UK dealer that was out of stock so I only would mention an other dealer nearby, also in Europe.
