From what's shown in the trailer I'm thinking 16 possible numbers. .rolling 3 dice. . And lots of pocket space for your multiple outs. . Would really be good to see a full performance. . I want to like this, but not sure at the moment.


Yep you can use 3 dice at the same time (don't need to but you can).
No extra pocketspace is needed!

I don't know why they chose to edit the trailer as it really wasn't necessary, there's no fishy moves going on

When Mike Donoghue started this thread there where a few things he wrote that got my attention.
Phrases like,

"you can even use imaginary dice if you want to"
"there is no rough and smooth or Svengali"
"you are ready to go immediately with a different result every time"

Really made me curious...



So I took the plunge and sent Costas a PM.
He gave me a nice offer and in return asked for my honest opinion about the effect.
Well here it is, my first productreview on the Café:

On the DVD you find in your packages (included in the package are some more extra items) there are 2 performances, one in a live setting and one in the studio.
A complete step by step tutorial for the first and only setup required.
This set up will take you about 10 minutes and really is easy to do.
A thorough explanation of the effect and different ways of performing and getting to the revelation.

My opinion:
I love how they got all the necessary steps for explanation and performing on the DVD and still keep it in a about 20 minute timeframe.
Sure you want to know everything about an effect you just bought, but don't you just hate it when a DVD goes on and on and about every little thing they can come up with, and you feel yourself falling asleep when someone on your screen tries to explain for the third time why they choose red back cards instead of blue....
This DVD has best of both worlds, thorough but short!

Except for a Sharpie everything you need is in the package.
NO "you have to supply your own deck of cards" and NO "go out to the hardware store and find yourself the exact kind of tape or glue to build your prop".
Thank you for that MagicTao!

I am not a Card Shark but this effect is easy to do.
There are, like in many other effects, different storylines to use and I have already got one at hand for myself.
Also there are some different ways to show/get to the revelation and one of them would make me as a participant ask a question to the performer (but hey I am not a layman...).
Yet there was another performance on the DVD that really made me wonder how Chris got to the revelation.
I Could only think of one and I was wrong!

All in all a very nice product that will give you some much fun performing it and fry laymen.

Thumbs up to Chris Congreave and MagicTao.



Marc,

Thanks for the excellent write up!
Two questions
1) do you have to wear a jacket or can you pull the reveal from you pants pocket?
2) does the reveal have to be on a playing card or could it be on something else like your business card?

Thanks,

Dan

1) Don't need a jacket, you can show the reveal card from your pants pocket... or there is handling taught where you reveal the card in the deck as well.
2) Has to be on a playing card as taught on the DVD, but I don't see why that would be an issue

Wondering if the deck can be replaced with a blank faced deck with words written on it.
Rather than actual playing cards

And...as if by magic, Diception is featured on the latest Magic Tao review show...
I don't know if this is quick work by Costas or a strange coincidence but no stooges were used!!

Thank you Costas,

I would say quick work. It wasn't our intention to give a once over of one of our own releases. Maybe we should do something like this more often Smile

Here is the link for those that want to watch it as well.

Yes, the same. It all seems very slow.
