Depending on what effects you wish to perform with CM you may eventually require refills, however you are provided with enough to do ample performances.

There is a lot more to Crystal Method than colour changes, there are many many more applications.

Regarding the name, we've received much feedback. We like the name, and see it as a bit of harmless fun, however we have decided to drop the capitalised CRYSTAL METH part of the name as in hindsight this is a bit over the top. I have made a fuller post and statement regarding this here http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......forum=32

CM is available to pre-order at http://www.magiccave.co.uk - use discount code "Caféoffer" for a special discount for Magic Café users!

Kudos on your decision!

Also, for all those posting the negative thoughts on the name should at least now give a word of thanks... IMHO. They didn't have to do it and they did.

I think this was a wise decision at the end of the day.

The global release date will be the end of this month -27th June.

Check out http://www.magiccave.co.uk for more details.

As mentioned, we have dropped the capitals, making it crystal method and have had good feedback on those it has offended.

No graphic work on the final product will link towards the promotion of any such narcotic.

We will shortly be adding new clips of routines on Youtube ;-)

The principle is completely new and if you buy this, you will be coming up with your own effects that day I promise!

Is the final spectators card examinable? Otherwise is simply looks like the spectator is signing a stiff see through plastic adhesive covering over a card, and following the KM move the plastic sheeting adheres to the new card...

Aah finally a magic question I can respond to.

You know, I love magic and have been passionate about it since a young age. All the arguing and debate over the name saddens me greatly when we can all come together and discuss the one thing we all share in common.

To answer your question, there are various different routines and ideas. Some leave things examinable, other don't. It's an application that lends itself to many many many different effects, so depending on the particular routine you're performing it's open to you to decide how to end up. The DVD provides lots of useful methods to match your performing style.

I think this could be really cool.

I don't think, you can have a spectator take a card (in their hands) sign it and rub it to make sure the ink is dry and then take the card and display it and make a duplicate of that signed card, so you can have their signed card loaded and still show a dupe with their signature and end with them keeping their signed card.

I do several signed card to impossible locations and not sure if it would be wise showing I can make a signature move from one card to another and then do signed card to impossible location, using other methods.

Showing a spectator you can duplicate a signature(even if you can't) and they believe it, I wonder if they would think your duplicating their card when you do impossible location effects and the cards are legit.

Not knocking this at all and I'm sure I will purchase it when it comes out, but I feel people should be careful in how they handle this.


I think this has great potential and think that people will come up with some realy cool tricks, but if your only getting it because you want to duplicate their signature on another card for card to impossible locations, you may be disapointed.

I have only read post here at the Café, but reading between the lines and how things are answered leads me to believe what I said.

I could be totaly wrong and would be tickled if I was. Smile

Any word on distributors in US? I know Paul Gross would want to carry it! He always carries everything new and unique!

Cardlover- you can very nearly do what your saying.
They can sign it, but best they sign it in your hands.
The ink goes dry.
Honestly its such a sneaky technique to copy the signature!!

Check out next months Genii ;-)

They're not cards as such and they can be used with any design ;-)

The website has now been updated as will all future marketing and final product. Unfortunately the video demo requires a re-edit so will take a little longer.

More video demo's of effects coming soon.
