Just received this yesterday. It comes in a square box with a picture of the Titanic on the lid. When you open the box the DVD is in the lid and the rest of the props are in the box. You get 60 carte de visits photos, a White Star Line pencil, a brass key fob nicely engraved, a postcard of the Titanic, a While Star playing card, a luggage tag and an old English penny of the correct period.
The DVD starts with a live performance of the effect, and then goes on to explain the workings of the effect. The instructions are recorded in sections detailing each part of the routine. The instructions are clear and detailed and easily understood. There is a little bit of maths involved but nothing difficult. If you have The Fallen you will pick it up in minutes. Also included on the DVD are several PDF files for you to print out, two aide memoires, a passenger list etc. All in all a very complete package.
The routine revolves around psychometry but can easily be tailored to your style of performing. There are also bonus sections on the DVD to give you ideas of your own.
I think for the money the props supplied are first class and I can't wait to get out and perform it, the penny is a particularly nice touch, if you tried to buy one with a specific date you could pay 5 pounds or more just for that. I am really pleased with this purchase and would reccomend it to anyone especially those who like storytelling routines.

Performed this last night for family and friends, they absolutely loved it. I combined it with White Star and it worked very well.

It comes with a routine based on psychometry, where you hold various objects and are then able to reveal lots of information about the person who's photo has been chosen. But really it leaves you open to come up with your own routine, there are bonus ideas included to give you even more ideas.

Exactly what I did! I prefer home made "aged" props rather than what one gets in a marketed effect!

Here's a little taste. . .
