I watched both episodes and really enjoyed them. They length was just perfect for most people's busy lives (not too long or short)...Nicely done Peter!

A mind-boggler.

I'm really enjoying this video series.
That said, I kind of feel that the effect covered in Episode 2 is maybe just an attempt to get rid of old stock of a mediocre trick. Although I was happy to learn that there is a redone tutorial. when I purchased this, there was only the creators tutorial, which is likely one of the worst I've encountered ever.
And when I had some questions regarding this particular trick, after I had bought it from Alakazam, my queries went unanswered. Not a typical experience, thankfully.
So, all-in-all, this review brought back some bad memories.
Other than that, the video series is great!

Here is the thread about this product. https://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=580997&forum=218

What concerns me is the size of the numbers, that a lot of users have complained about.

Hi Dooblehorn, We do not actually have stock of this to get rid off. We are ordering them in due to the response from the video.
Also I totally agree that the instructions provided with the product are not the best so we filmed our own video when the item was first released.

Also sorry to hear you did not get a reply? That's very strange as we answer and clear down emails every day.
We are always at the end of the phone as well (well during shop hours of course)

Best Reagrds

Has the issue around the illegibility of the numbers been resolved?

I use Deadlock and quality is superb.

Re show ideas, I loved the Bob Ostin special format where they took the book and performed a few items from the book. I love that idea because you often need to see something performed to appreciate how good it looks. Hope they bring that format back for other books.

Me too. Might even be good to revisit some old dvds and do some tricks from those. Iím sitting here looking at my office shelves and I just counted over 300 dvds and over 75 books. Canít even imagine how many thousands of tricks are just sitting there waiting to be re-discovered.

We have some special shows planned for the future on our YouTube channel.
