Regarding the pricing of "magical" decks of cards these days:

Recently I have purchased three (3) really great ESP decks, one priced at $30 and the other two at $39.95 each. All of these were simply produced with different marking systems that required no special technology whatsoever--just clever patterns of ink, conventionally printed onto the card backs.

It seems to me that the Quantum deck must be considerably more expen$ive to manufacture than those referred to above, so ... kudos to Craig and his associates for holding the price DOWN while providing 4 hours of explanatory footage to boot! IMHO, any suggestion that this highly praised piece of kit may be overpriced bespeaks gross ingratitude for what I consider remarkable generosity undeserving of any backhanded suggestion of profiteering.


To be fair, I believe those ESP decks are probably equally expensive to produce in their own right.

I donít know if $40 for a special deck is now the norm but Iím glad that these 4 hour in depth masterclasses being included with them are becoming more the norm now.

From what I see in the trailer, it seems like a nice trick that is easy to do.
I wish Craig Petty the best of luck with it.

Although, the blank card concept isn't THAT new... Smile
In 2014 I published a trick (insiders know where) that went like this:

NUDE ACAAN:
(2014)

From the beginning I did magic, I was fascinated by blank playing cards. More than fifty years ago, one of my first tricks was "het nudistenspel" (Dutch for the nudist deck). Till today that fascination has stayed. I always found that blank cards were in a sense very visual and contained an additional surprise for the spectator. By each card trick that I see, I think almost automatically: "can I do that with blanks or can I add them somewhere".
Therefore it is not surprising that I have tried to work out an Acaan with blank cards.
For the construction of the trick I was inspired by my first "nudist deck" and by a variant of a trick called "Not a Joker" that I read in the book Meant to be from John Born (p.117)

Effect:
Right at the beginning of your act you put a card case on the table with the remark that it contains a surprise that you will reveal at the end of your act. Somebody is asked to think at a playing card and to name it. Then you ask someone to (think) name a number between 1 and 52. Both spectators write their "thoughts" on a piece of paper and keep it.
At the end of the act you take the card case and draw attention to the fact that the card case was there from the beginning, even before the number and card were tought of, and that you never touched it. (What's true)
You open the card case and take the deck of cards out. The card case is given to someone who can examine it.
You ask, as if you didn't know it anymore, for the both pieces of paper and they repeat what's written on it. (for example 37 and two of clubs).
You gave the deck of cards to a spectator who counts the cards face down till he reaches the number 36. He then takes the number 37 and you ask him to turn over that card. It is the two of clubs.
You ask the spectator to turn over all the other cards and they are all blank.
EVERYTHING can be examined. Presentation patter is up to you.

I find it really odd that shops can you send you the tutorial link but have to keep the actual deck on there their shelves until the 14th.

Why not let them send it now?

Only one thing hold me back from this release it is the lengthy video, in any magic video if I see it is more than one hour long, I automatically turn away.
I know I'm a minority here but sorry I can't imagine myself sitting and watching 4 hours video, life is too short and we have many things to do on it, we are in modern age where everything is running very fast , we receive huge flood of information every second, if you blink you miss something, science proved that people's attention span becomes very short after the mobile phones invention, even some social media platforms built specially on short videos because they understood that people can't give attention for lengthy videos.
I appreciate the dedication and hardwork of Craig, just my aim here is to remind the rest about the people who are like me, you can put short video showing the outlines and another in-depth detailed lengthy video to satisfy the both groups.

Well in that case I have good news for you. You can learn the whole effect that you saw on the tutorial and how everything works within 20 minutes. After that I go through different applications of the deck and how to use it as a force in deck, use it for transpositions, use it for mentalism applications and more.

But if you simply want to learn the trick 20 minutes and youíre good

You will miss out on some pretty cool concept but youíll be able to do the trick that I did on the trailer

Hope that helps

Iím afraid not. I havenít got any. They sold out before I could get some so there is no point in lecturing it as it will just annoy people if they canít buy it.

Iíll have mine on me so I can perform it though.

Right, watched the whole 4 hours.

For all you method seekers, I can confirm it does involve a combination of black magic, S&M and the sacrifice of a newborn son.

Best of luck.

I do not care if it uses R&S, R without S, S without R, sticky stuff, DST, IT, DS cards, etc. The mechanics are simply a means to an end. I am more interested in the final result. I am confident that Craig has utilized several physical methods to achieve a great end and created a wonderful, entertaining routine. I pre-ordered here in the States and am looking forward to it.

Michael


If there is R & S involved, I am even more confused about possible method since somewhere in the ad copy or trailer Craig says you could use a business card reveal, credit card, or even some piece of paper!! So, now are you R&Sers telling me it involves concealing 10 to 35 credit cards, business cards, etc by an R & S treatment???!!!
(Gotta buy this must to learn the ingenious method, but the value of three hours+ of additional tutorial is worth it, too!)


Smile Smile


You can absolutely do that, and to 252 life I got my tutorial from Craig after he phoned me directly Gaz.😊

In terms of the quality of the product, how reliable does it handle compared to the deck you get with JP Vallarino's Offworld? I don't recall too many people complaining about handling issues due to quality concerns with the deck there.

Obviously if a gimmicked deck like that doesn't perform consistently 100% of the time, you risk flashing the secret. But I guess it's too early to tell with Quantum because nobody has the actual deck yet - or have some reviewers or magic industry folks had an advance copy of the final published version?

I agree with others that the concept here is excellent, and should play well - it should offer lots of presentation possibilities.

The "examinable" part is driving me nuts. I just don't get it. Anyway: ordered. Looking forward to it.


I think many people would have bought the trick on the premise that the deck is examinable.

In the trailer Craig says to Adam Wilber over Zoom if he was there he could examine the cards as they are just regular double blank cards.

Knowing the method I think this is the point people will take issue with. A magician would take the deck and instantly know the principle at play. They would know the cards are not 'regular' double blank cards.

The trick is still clever but if you're expecting a gaff free deck, based on what Craig said to Adam, you'll be disappointed.

I can't imagine this will be an issue. I would guess there's a zero percent chance the deck isn't completely examine-able when Craig says it is. The community would lose their minds if they were lied to on a project with so much pre-hype... and say Craig actually misspoke or something... Murphy's would've caught it and not let it go on the trailer. There's just no way he worked this hard getting back into magic, putting out four YouTube vids per hour, doing interviews, podcasts, running companies etc... just to make a mistake he knows he'd be crucified for. Without having a clue to what the method is, I would bet the farm it can be examined safely... or at least relatively safely.
