I agree with Andy, the additional printing on the box is much appreciated.

I now need to wear reading glasses and so have to be careful which effects I use. However I was looking at this deck first thing this morning and without my reading glasses on. Pleasingly I was able to read the necessary and which is also brilliantly disguised in the design.

Thanks guys, I'm getting some good + useful feedback here and on email.

I'm just sitting down to put the final shine on the ebook and then get it out. My intention is for it to be a 'living document' in the same way as Elliot Bresler's ridiculously excellent Switchcraft, so although it is already at ninety some pages it is actually not particularly exhaustive - I've set out to explain the bits I want to cover with my usual depth / waffle but there are really only about ten effects in there out of the millions that are possible with the deck. Rather than try and cover everything I have covered the basics and then the whole thing will evolve as we all work with the deck.

OK I'll just shut up now, get it done and then out to you.

What kind of cheese allows you to hide a horse?.......mascarpone

Did you hear about the explosion in the cheese factory? - de Brie everywhere

Where do mice stay when they are out of town? - The Stilton

Now those are cheesy gags!

That Mascapone joke is one of my favourite puns.

My actual favourite regards the year that Arnold Schwarzenegger didn't receive any Easter eggs. When asked by his wife if he no longer liked the holiday, he replied "I still love Easter, baby."

OK it doesn't make any sense written down, and it isn't about cheese. Sorry.

Same question as above for anyone in Europe (but not the UK, for you pedantic types). Smile

I got mine about a week ago (NY, here) and I have to say - this deck is really great. It bridges quite a few ideas that I've used separately for some time, all in one neat little place! These certainly look like any of the lateral thinking decks you'd find in art or book stores. Card quality is great as well!

I'm definitely going to put a lot of time into this deck, can't wait to get running with it!

I haven't read through the entire ebook yet, but it's great, so far. Excellent thinking, and it's already given me a few ideas, beyond the reasons for which I originally backed the deck on kickstarter.

Excellent job, Mr. Smith!

Bummer that decks have started to drop in the States, a week ago in NY and today in WA, yet here in PA, bordering NY, no Creative Solutions Decks.

Wait a minute, Mr. Postman...

Hi guys, me again. Sorry for the delay in sorting this out, but the deck is now available on my website:
http://www.phillsmiff.com

The ebook is also available on there as a pdf download:
http://www.phillsmiff.com/creative-solut......k-ebook/

Thanks for your kind words about the decks too, its nice to see people enjoying it. I'm getting lots of great messages from people who are already finding ways to use it and incorporate it into their performances, which is awesome and personally quite exciting, knowing there are real punters out there being fried using the deck!

I have read through the ebook while awaiting the decks. (c'mon postie! get yer finger out!)

A very enjoyable read.
I like the homour in there as well as the great effects.
What stood out for me was the thought that must have gone into the presentations.
Great work sir.

Now if I could just get my hands on a deck.
