I like gaffed cards, and the effects they make possible. My only concern with some of them is that not in every case you can give spectators cards for a final examination ( and the party pooper asking - in defiance or with an ironic tone of voice - them for examination is far from being an endangered species ).
Anyway ; this dvd intrigues me. Price is attractive, considering you get cards together with a valuable - according to reviews - 2 hours dvd. It will be one of my next purchases.

I just got this DVD and I have to say I love and admire Cameron's work. His material is practical, workable material that really works. Good job Cameron!

Galerius, some of the effects on the dvd are examinable. Some of them are not completely examinable but the cards they will want to look at are examinable. And some of them are flat out not examinable. Hope that helps.

Mayniac, thank you for the kind words.

After we shot the dvd, I changed part of the the handling of Switch Jack. I think it's much better now and much less contrived. For those of you who have the dvd, here's the change.

Instead of having the Jacks on the table, have them scattered throughout the deck. After the cards are selected and the one is controlled to the top, run through the pack and up-jog the two black Jacks. Strip them out, taking the selection behind them (Strip Out Addition).

Place all three cards to the back of the pack. Flip the pack face down. Apparently remove the top two cards, but actually only taking one (the selection) and place it under the card case. Then run through the deck and remove the red Jacks. Proceed as normal.

Hope you like this new handling. It's much more organic!

Thanks for the handling update Cameron! I like that version better than the one on the dvd, although the oe on the dvd was fine too.

Thanks, Cameron. Yes, it helps. It will be my job choosing what to present...according to audience Smile
Add cards one needs to perform the effects was a great idea. I look forward for your dvd.

Thanks, Mayniac. I just feel the handling of the black Jacks on the dvd is too convoluted. This was one of the sticking points in the Genii review and I must say, I couldn't argue with it!

Can someone kindly tell me what kind of gaff cards are included in the DVD? I mean, is it just gaff cards from Assortment Bicycle Gaff Deck or unique gaff cards just like in Ultragaff or Simon's Blue Deck?

Just send me a PM. I just want to know more info before I decide to buy this. Thanks in advance.

They are common gaffs, which is great because it is easier to build a replacement set.

Hi, Failed! Sorry to hear about your career...

Anyway, to expand on what King said, the gaffs are common to most assortment decks. The dvd comes with everything you need. However, if you need to replace a card or two, it's easy enough to do.

The gaffs for all of the tricks are reusable. You don't have to destroy any each time you do a trick (i.e. no spectators signatures on gaffs). There is some one time prep for a few ticks, but these gaffs can be used over and over. Hope this info helps.

For those of you who own the dvd, here is a new handling for "What The Blank". I think this is a lot better. Just wish I had thought of doing it this way two years ago when we shot the dvd! Smile

Thanks for sharing with us the update to the handling! I think it is very much improved from the method shown on the dvd.

My set of gaffs did not contain two of the "same face / blank" cards and cannot perform Tele-Print. Has anyone else had the same problem?

Willy, I'm sorry to hear that. Must have been a fluke as this is the first time I've heard of this problem. I can send you a few double blanks. Just PM me your address.
