It's advertised in the latest Genii issue. It says you can build your own gaffs/decks. 8 effects are described. $35. Looks good. Includes a bonus effect. End of telegram.

“If you’re going to gaff, you might as well gaff to the Maximus. You can’t get these effects any other way. Farmer’s intention is to undermine everyone’s sense of the possible and he’s ruthless.”

Mine arrived more than a week ago.

I am very pleased with my purchase.

I have experienced this before when I bought a book from Bob - after my initial reception of the book, Bob might send additional PDF(s) with pertinent information. So today I was pleasantly surprised to receive one of those PDFs with a top-notch and unique tip in relation to doing faro-shuffles (if you want to know more, purchase the book).

Excerpts from Dustin Stinett’s Genii, December, 2017, review follow.

For more information email bammomagic@cogeco.ca

“I am not sure if there has ever been a book on card magic like this one.

“While there have been booklets that concentrate on a single gaffed deck, like the Svengali or stripper deck, this one is a collection of special decks that cannot be purchased. The decks described must be made by the reader and mostly they are the creation of the book’s author, Bob Farmer. All of the ideas shared are the creation of Mr. Farmer, who has been on something of a roll lately. This book follows on the heels of The Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox, which was preceded by The Bammo Ten Card Deal Dossier. That’s three, significant works in two years ….

“The effects are varied, ranging from spelling tricks to effects with messages written on the cards. There’s one routine—“Devils & Angels”—in which there are specially printed cards (stickers you print and apply to blank cards—the images can be copied from the pages of the book) with sins and virtues on them.

The bottom line of all of this is that these effects are not possible—at least in as clean and magical appearing manner—without these gaffed packs. Of course, that is what gaffed decks are supposed to do: help you create strong magic, not do the magic for you ….
“‘Karmatic’ might be one of the strongest effects in the book, as well as the easiest to execute.

A card is freely selected from a blue-backed deck and set aside unviewed. Another card is freely named and removed from the face-up deck. That card is red backed, and written on its back is its value as well as the name of the card previously set aside. There’s no rough and smooth and the cards are freely selected. The second card can be named before the deck is spread face up. Table workers will want to consider this ….

“This is a truly remarkable work. Either ‘Karmatic’ or ‘Deja Voodoo’ are worth the price of the book, and there is a lot more excellent material within its 144 pages. Highly recommended.”

The work within this book will melt the brains of both laymen and magicians alike. The effects are so amazing that I have already started using 'The Magic Red Card of Mystery'.

Buy it now or be ready to get your mind blown by someone who has it.

Another unsolicited comment from a purchaser:

"Hello Bob,

"I have received and read the books and I have to say, the thinking and the methodology is UNREAL. The Bammo Tarodiction Toolbox & Gaffus Maximus are clear winners and whosoever hasn't bought it is really missing some mind blowing out of this world like magic which won't just amaze your audience but amaze us.

"Thank you for writing these and sharing it with all of us."

An unsolicited comment from a happy reader:

“I made up the deck for "Another Psychological Discovery" and performed it last night at a session with a few of the local guys who are pretty method savvy.

“They had NO clue, and sat there kinda stunned ….

“The host of the session eventually broke down and asked about "Another Psychological Discovery," and wanted to know if it was in print somewhere ….

“I was reluctant to tell the group about GAFFUS MAXIMUS, because I wanted to mess with them a bit more, but I eventually tipped the source, not the method. It was so cool to watch them try to suss the method.”

—D.H.

Mike Close has published his review in his December, 2017 newsletter. He concludes:

"... if you take the time to learn these routines, you will be in an exclusive club; even though these are extraordinary effects, many will not put in the small amount of effort to make them up. You will be able to fool those people mercilessly.

"Here’s the bottom line: if you’re looking for effects that will fool the most intelligent of audiences, the routines in The Bammo Gaffus Maximus will fit the bill."
