Yes! The project hit 100% last night - that's really good for a Kickstarter project like this. More than half of all projects don't make it at all, so to hit the target a week in is brilliant. Thanks to everyone who has backed the project.

I added an update saying thanks at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/5517......-s/posts

In it I mention a new stretch goal - basically I have been working on an ebook of effects with the deck, all my background and development work in coming up with killer ways to use the deck - and the stretch goal is that if the project gets to 200% before it finishes on May 8th then *everyone* who has backed the project will get the ebook for FREE. If we don't hit this stretch goal it doesn't affect people getting their decks though - if people have backed the project, they WILL get their decks regardless.

At the moment that's by the by though, mainly I'm just super chuffed that we managed to get the project to 100% at all!
Massive thanks to everyone who has supported the project.

A little late to the party here. I think I just got us 1% closer to the 200% goal. Smile

For some reason I seemed to have missed this - up until now. Having Phill's other releases, I needed little persuasion. This looks good and Phill's next target has just edged a little closer.

Hi guys, sorry to be boring - we hit 150% today which is awesome, at this rate we SHOULD be good for the stretch goal. To this end I put a whole load of information about the ebook that is the reward for the stretch goal up at:

Thanks Seamagu, and everyone else who has supported the project!
We blasted past 200% so every single backer *will* get the ebook now too.
I still need to write the last few bits and drop a couple of drawings in of course...

Thanks everyone! I actually wanted to double check the proof so I had a super final lock-down proof done with the Sure Slip finish and the proof deck arrived from the printers on Friday. Even my wife (who doesn't care about such things) said it was "much better", which is high praise indeed. With the sure slip finish they handle just like normal high-end playing cards, so even if you have effects that rely on complex sleights they will work flawlessly. A little part of me was worried that the texture would compromise the print, but they look perfect, Ivory have done a great job.

I'm really pleased with how things have gone so far, and I'm really psyched to put the final order in this week and to eventually get on to sending out the decks and the ebooks. A few people have asked about whether the deck will be available after the Kickstarter project finishes on the 8th (this Tuesday) and the answer is yes, *but* not with the free ebook and definitely not with the £55 ebook bundle. If you want those you've got until Tuesday to snap them up.

Thanks again!
Phill

I just edited the Kickstarter page for the Creative Solutions deck so it now has no suggestion that it is a mind-reading prop (for future Googlers after your gigs, you know) - it still looks pretty good! If anyone is interested in grabbing them you have 9 hours!

My set arrived today and WOW! These are superb...so clever and innocent, and perfect for some new corporate work I am doing with a senior leadership team.

Brilliant!

Thanks Dr Todd, I'm glad (relieved!) that you like them. The decks are all posted now, just polishing the ebook for sending out, currently 85+ pages and it should be emailed out at the beginning of the week.

Mine have arrived safe and sound and I agree - superb quality, I very much appreciate the additional printing on the box and the time and care that has gone into the design makes this deck both practical but also a true utility prop - well done and thank you Phill, gold star and I look forward to reading the ebook Smile
