I don't know what is wrong with the people at BBM.

This was supposed to ship on the 17th, but mine shipped today!

Someone should have a talk with the folks over there and tell them to stop exceeding my expectations!

Believe me, I'm very upset over this!

Mine arrived today. Have quickly gone through the effects, like volume 1 absolutely brilliant.

Remember, just because they are self working doesn't mean they are not really powerfull, espcially if you can false shuffle where setups are required, and especially if you mix them in with more sleighty stuff!

Well done BBM!

Hey guys just saw they posted a performance of John G's Stock Exchange. What a amazing effect. The ending is a kick in the face.

Mine was shipped, but still waiting for it in the post here in the US. Looks like it is now available for purchase as a download from BBM as well as from dealers in the US. reviews should start pouring in shortly and I suspect they will be good.

I recieved it here in Sweden today, but I haven´t seen all of it since the package contained more items (took advantage of their sale in conjunction with Liams birthday).

I must Point out one thing they mentioned, almost in passing. If you do Aldo Colombini´s "Contact colours" from vol 1, you are in the perfect position to piggyback it with John G´s "Stock Exchange" from vol 2.

You just produce the aces in "Contact colours" but don't reveal the state of the rest of the deck. Save that for the climax of Johns´trick.

If you add the Ireland shuffle in beginning of the Colombini effect and the shuffle sequence in Johns´effect as per the instructions, I would wager that there won´t be a layman on the entire planet that wouldn´t be completely convinced that the deck is thoroughly shuffled, making the last climax of "Stock Exchange" even stronger.

I almost didn't try this but luckily I got to my senses. This is now my new laymanbrainfryer.
Thank you Big Blind Media.

Convergence by Cameron Francis is fantastic.

So easy to do .
And also easy to prepare the decks.

Awesome.

Have a look on the demo here:

Good thoughts there Mikael.

By the way, for everyone doing Stock Exchange, be sure to really sell how the spectators are TURNING cards over with each cut. And after all three cuts, remind them again that they mixed both packets with a mixture of face-up and face-down cards - all determined by their cuts. This makes the Triumph phase very strong...not to mention what follows.

Tthanks to Liam for making this effect completely selight-less with his idea to place out prediction cards (I used to have cards selected and controlled - but no need now).

Glad to have Stick Exchange among this brilliant collection.

Thank you John, but they weren´t excactly my thoughts... :-(

Liam mentions doing both effects after each other during the explanation phase of Stock Exchange.

I wanted to point this out so nobody missed it, and also tip about using the Ireland shuffle. They mention that too in the exlanations for both effects.

A point about the Ireland shuffle that Liam also touches on that would be interesting for someone who might not be so well versed in card shuffling techniques: when you do the Ireland shuffle, you might accidently miss in the center portion of the deck resulting in a few misplaced cards.

This should not discourage you from using the shuffle because in both effects you can blatantly run through the deck and correct any mistake and the spectator will be none the wiser.

In Aldos routine you go through the deck to pick out your favourite card. In John´s routine you can spread your portion of the deck (where the misplaced cards should be) efter your shuffle while the spectators shuffle their portions. In fact, Liam does just that during the performance and even I didn´t pay attention to it the first time I saw it.

ps John: I still Think your effect Wino, sorry, Vino aces is great! Smile

Thank you, Jean-Luc. Although that link doesn't really take you to anything... Or did I miss it?

Anyway, Convergence is one of my favorite effects and I am thrilled to have it on this project.

Thanks for the link Ryan - "Stock Exchange" looks great. And Liam gives a great performance, as usual. Please let us know when more performances are posted.

BTW, your "Sense-sational" is amazing.
So is Cameron's "Convergence".

Thank you for posting that! Keep in mind, this is not a performance from the Ultimate Self Workers DVD. Iain Moran performs his version of the effect on that project.

Appreciate it Walter! I added the extra mixing procedure in the beginning and simplified the handling from when I first release the effect. Hope you all enjoy it.

(Also the dark horse of this DVD seems to be Peter Duffie Four Most..... I saw it first during filming and immediately wrote it down. Just Awesome)

Ok on the basis that Vol 1 was the best thing I have ordered in many a year I have to have Vol 2. However one complaint which I can see before I order it. Why isn't the beautiful dark haired woman used on this volume ( you could have at least included her contact details!)??
