Hello,

I'm new here in the Magic Café and want to ask something.

I've bought Nefesch's "Vetruvian Man" but I don't like the way the cards must be marked by yourself. I think the spectator will definitly see that the marking is present.

Does anyone of you have an idee of how the cards can be marked on a better way ??

Thanks in advance

Use the one where you also draw multiple lines on the si** , it'll conceal everything well . I've not been caught once .

Can anyone comment on the quality of the Vetruvian Man? Do things align perfectly or is it Mona Lisa all over again?

Instead of the individual marks, mark the entire thing black, leaving tiny white spots. It looks like the edge just rubbed off a bit.

DMT,
One more thought: Only make a single mark (or single unmarked spot) on each card, but in different locations.

DMT,
Let me clarify: You would need to make a single mark in the appropriate locations on each card, but in different locations. I hope that makes sense without giving away the secret.

1KJ that is a great idea. That would really hide the marking system. I have been caught with the set up as described in explanation. Very nice, I will use

Hey Guys -

Nefesch's "Vitruvian Man" version of OPUS is now available and shipping from your favorite dealer! They arrived in the warehouse last week and look Amazing.

Good to know that the sales from the prototype 'Mona Lisa' gimmick has allowed Nefesch to spend some of the profits to getting this one right.

I got mine yesterday. The cards are nice quality and should last.
Unfortunately there were no instructions, no download links in or printed on the box, just the 5 cards and the spongy white material under the cards put there to fill the empty space.

The dealer, they are trying to confirm the password, I heard back today and they are still working on that. Not sure how difficult it is as it is one password for the product, I found the instructions page at Murphy's on my own. I also contacted my friend, Nefesch yesterday, no word from him yet.

So all I can say is, the cards look nice, better than in the ad, in the ad they have white borders, not so in real life.

Tony pm me I can give you what you need.


Mine arrived today from Rome since Nefesch was in Italy (probably on a tour) at the time
he posted my order (September, 16th).

However, according to my assumption, he couldn't send me the package the way (the set of
cards inside a box and the spongy white material that John C is referring to) it is described
by all of you who have already purchased OPUS.

That's probably why I received a simple, white letter envelope which had only the set
of the five cards inside, posted from Rome.

Unfortunately Nefesch probably forgot to include the password in order for me to have access
to the online instructional video which can be accessed only via Murphys' website.

So, I have now five cards (one is the prediction) of the VITRUVIAN MAN without knowing what
to do with them.

I sent him two successive emails so far; however I haven't gotten any response from
Nefesch, yet.

I'd really much appreciate if someone of you who knows the password, would be so kind
to send me a PM.

To avoid any prior misundestanding or misinterpretation, I can provide proof of purchase,
since I ordered OPUS from Nefesch's website and paid via PAYPAL.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to copy and then paste the relevant PAYPAL receipt from
my Inbox on a post or PM here in the Magic Café.

Any technical advice by any of you would be well appreciated so I can have access to online
video instructions, while I'll be waiting for Nefesch to clarify this issue by sending me
the password (no sign of him so far).

Hope I didn't make you feel bored to death with this email but I just want to use as soon
as possible what I paid for.

As of the cards, they're perfectly aligned and their quality is great!

They also look very durable and it seems that they'll last for a very long time,
if treated well.

Thank you in advance.

Warmest regards,
Andrew K.

Hi guys,

Nefesch contacted me a few hours ago and sent me the corresponding password.

So, there is no need for any help although I'm sure that it was a matter of time
until someone of you would have shown up to PM me in order to settle the password issue.

I bought the original Opus many months ago (Monalisa without eye).
And I have been absolutely happy with it.
In my opinion this is the best thing I have bought in years.
It is truly a worker.

I lost somewhere one of the pieces of my monalisa :-(
So I had to reorder it.

I had bought the original from Penguin Magic. (the one without eye)

This time, I ordered directly from Nefesch's store; and I decided to get BOTH versions (Vetruvian man and Monalisa).

I received them today! And they are looking awesome!!!
I took some pictures of both versions, and I am attaching them to this post.

The Vetruvian man is simply PERFECT, not an imperfection at all!

The monalisa is almost perfect (it has a small -almost unnoticeable - tiny, thin black line on top of the bottom right card (it is truly nothing, but I had to point at it to be absolutely fair). This time the monalisa aligns 100% perfect, it has both eyes absolutely stylish and is looking better than ever!

I am happy with both of them, and as I said I am using them EVERYDAY.

See pictures attached.

I can nothing but highly recommend it.

Thanks for posting mindmesser. I too have the original one and also love it. I really don't see any problem with the way it was printed. I think it is pretty normal for an image that is cut in four and trimmed as a card to not be perfect.

I appreciate your posting the newer photo. It looks like the Mona Lisa image has been improved. Is that right?

Thank you all for providing those reviews. Has it been confirmed that the new stock have the missing-eye printing problem solved?

I am interested in ordering one if so. Any retailer could help check and confirm about this? Thanks.

I've just finished a review on what I presume is new stock and the eye problem is not there - to my eyes Smile I did think the bottom quarter looked a slightly different shade to the rest - but I honestly don't think this is noticable in normal use. This one has really grown on me - after being somewhat baffled by the explanation the first time! You can read my full review here: http://www.bicycle-cards.co.uk/2018/08/1......-review/

I was interested in getting this ages ago, as it looked and sounded really cool. Can't remember if the earlier issues put me off, or I just didn't get around to it and then forgot.

But your review has revived my interest and so I think I'll finally order it. Thank you Smile
