Give them a ring.

May be wrong but I thought it was available now.

Chris is great & he does a cracking lecture.

Magic Tao was selling it at Blackpool along with a few other of their new effects, and they have said their new line of effects will be released in the coming months.

I saw Chris' other new release, Horoscope, is up for pre-order now, so I was hoping for an update on Diception.

Wow, fantastic deal... if you are interested in this effect, I strongly suggest you take him up on this offer as well!

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.

I also received this recently from Costas and the Magic Tao team.

The description of the effect in this thread is very accurate. I had a chance to perform it for some friends and family this weekend and it went over very well.

As stated, the one time set up takes about 10 min, then you are good to go.

The effect is easy to do and there are a few different variations taught on how to get into the revelation, so you have some variety in how you want to present this, which is nice. Depending on your preference and skill, the alternate handlings range from borderline self working to intermediate skill level, but all the handlings are very fooling.

Oh, and it also resets instantly.

All in all, its a winner in my book.

I received mine as well. Two thumbs up. This is a very deceptive and extremely clever effect. This will fool both magicians as well as entertaining your lay audience.

I'm very interested in buying this effect but am a bit on the fence because the trailer fades out at a, what perhaps is, crucial point in the performance ... . Is this on purpose (as in deliberately hiding something?) or is it just me being paranoid?

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.
