Just got the set in the mail!! Looks top quality just from the case, except that the 3rd disks was not on the holder of the disk (you know that middle thing on every disk case). It was loose.

Too bad I cannot view it this time! Family is around, I have to wait until tonight...ahhh! I'm so excited.

Just an idea. Ramjollock can actually allow 3 shuffles quite safely if you use your head a little...and theoretically more than that, but I wouldn't go there.

This dvd is full of fantastic psychological and structuring ideas as well as great technical magic. A lot of thought is contained within. Also Ben knows his material and where it comes from.

Yes, Ramjollock does work! And yes, you could do a few more shuffles. But my main problem is that most of my friends over here in France do not know how to riffle shuffle... But for magicians it's awesome (and for people who can riffle shuffle...)!

If they can't riffle shuffle, get them to cut the deck in half, then if you ribbon spread each packet, so they are parallel to each other, like train tracks, then they can push them into each other, it gives the same results

Is it somehow possible for me to buy the third disc, and not the whole set? The psychological work is what I'm mainly interested in.

Nope.

This was my only Birthday present I got and I love it.
Anyway the whole set is brilliant. I got it a couple days ago and performed ramjallock method mixed in with card to pocket and then performed sow by the lug as a test to see how it plays out in performance..very nice stuff in this set. Vol 2 is one of my favorites even though I'm into mentalism.

Thanks for the advice Christopher! However, this way you have to have a table...
But good idea!

This is a good idea, I had to do this to a couple of my test audiences It all worked out in the end.

No you don't, you could just give it a riffle shuffle without the bridge, hand it to them. Have them push it together.

Yes, of course... My concern with this approach is that in this case you have to have the deck in your hand and NO MATTER how clean you do the shuffle, people will be a little more suspicious, even unconsciously...

Beleive me, I know what I'm talking about: if you do the trick and NEVER have the deck in your hands before the final revelation (actually I've come up to a method which doesn't even require you to touch the deck AT ALL...), the audience will really be AMAZED. Try it: do the same trick both ways and you'll see. That's always what people (mostly friends) told me : if I touch the deck, for them I did SOMETHING (even if it's not the case, again, no matter how clean it is), they don't know what, but they think I did.

It could be summed up this way: if you touch the deck you're a magician, or, "worse" (in this particular case), a sleight-of-hand artist, if not, you're a mentalist... I already hear some of you fell offended: it's just an image...

But I admit it's a good alternative.

Just a precision: I've nothing against sleight-of-hand, and my friends magician even think that I use too much sleight-of-hand techniques. It's just that some tricks are more the sleight-of-hand type, some others not. But at the end, it has to look magical. In Ramjollock, I think it should look like a mentalism type of effect, that's all...

Hope I didn't offend too many of you...

I was lucky to meet Ben in the Ruskin Hotel in Blackpool last Sunday evening at the conclusion of the annual magic convention. (It was about 3.30am !) He performed 'Thought Of Card To Pocket' and 'Playing The Odds' as well as demonstrating some of his false shuffles. Having seen just a few of the effects he performs I bought the set from him. His stuff really is exceptional and I would recommend it to anyone.

Great set

I perform today the first time Thought of Card in Pocket for my brother, the only thing that he said after the trick was this is not funny Smile

Just had an awesome idea but it has probably already been thought of haha.

The actions in pseudo brainwave provide a perfect cover for using a named card with a memorized deck instead of having the spectator look at / take a card.

Just wondering if anyone can comment on the bonus manuscript that was included for the first pre-orders. I (regretfuly) waited for a review before purchasing so just wondering what I missed out on Smile
