So is the impossible looking shake change included in the explanations?

Everything you see on the demo is explained step by step. I am very happy with this effect. The dvd is definitely worth it. To me it was worth the wait. Richard really does a great job of explaining the multiple handlings. This is something I really have to get down before I perform it.

Agreed!
Richard always impresses me with his detailed explanations...this includes all the extra time he takes on this DVD to explain the different "moves" required to perform this effect.
He leaves no stone unturned!

But as MikeOB stated, this will take some practice to get it down properly.

The best part is that Richard gives us multiple versions (including an impromptu version)to work with.

Greta job Richard!

Just got home and found it in the mail. Opened it up to see the gimmick and... You guys are really mean! Smile Saying that the gimmick surprised you is just throwing people on a loop trying to figure out what it is. It is what I thought it was going to be. You're surprised because you were expecting something more complex.

I have no doubt this is an excellent item, coming from Richard Sanders, no doubt about that.
I'm considering buy one soon.

But why does he state:

"No previous knowledge of the spectator is necessary"
It's obvious that you have to know, for the name to appear!

Am I wrong?

You do not have to know their name before you perform the effect.

Meaning you walk up to them without knowing their name.

Any owners of True Astonishments think of applying the last change of Backlash 2 to Identity, instead of the Shake Change? Because of the routine, they see the marks travel from card to care and then land on their card. They will surely be CONVINCED that if there is anything on their card, it's the marks. So you just take their card and do the Backlash 2 change instead of the Shake Change. It cuts down on the moves at the end and you can immediately hand out the card after the change. Instantly reset as with the Shake Change. Keeping the powerful psychology behind the change, it would be just as visual as the Shake Change.

I've had this for a couple of days. I'm very impressed with the superb explanations and detail Richard goes into. This is another superb release from him and very good value for money in my opinion. I am slightly confused why we had to wait so long for the gimmicked card? These are available all over the place aren't they?

Those who have received it, will hopefully know what I mean?

Any ideas guys?

Just another presentational idea for those of you who perform on somebody you know. I like to ask them to think of their favorate childhood cartoon charecter. Then to pick a card and draw it on the face of the card. Continue with the extended effect and end with the name of the cartoon on the back of the card. Again, very strong reactions to all I've perfomed this to!

Rich,

The USPCC has been relocating to a different factory so they have stopped the production temporarily for gaffed cards. Most online dealers are actually out of these currently.

Just got mine. When I saw the gimmick and the real life performance (not the promo), I thought "Ah man, I will never do this", but when I watched the explaination I realized that all the moves are ones I know or are within my reach (I'm not much of a card guy). Richard's teaching style is "Bar None" the best I've seen. I bought this because the other two items I've purchased from Richard (Fiber Optics and Extreme Burn) are permanent parts of my repertoire. I will play with this for a while before I decide whether it's for me. I would like to explore some of his older material. Sounds like a lot of good stuff.

I haven't gotten mine as of yet either. Smile

Oh well it can't be long now.

On the upside, If the gimmick is what I think it is, I have a bunch of them. I stocked up a while back.

Well, whatever it is, I'm glad to hear it will take practice. I'd rather have soemthing that takes work so that the folks that want self working effects will leave it alone.

I don't mind self working gaffed items...they have their use. However, I agree that it is more fulfilling to have had worked for the reactions.
