What a weekend! Thanks to everyone for their support in making the Pack Smart Superdeal an awesome success. The page is now live with all the info, video and access to purchase. We are down to a small handful of Pro Packages, and once these are gone we have no plans to remake them. http://billabbottmagic.com/online-store/PSPASHOW.html

I'm expecting Bill's package to be in my hands any day now.

I can't wait to start playing with all the bits and pieces.

Mostly, I'm just excited to get the Tic Tacs. They don't have those here on the island....

Bill, thanks for the direct link. However, it's only available in a blue deck?

I haven't examined the props in detail but it looks like the typical Abbott quality - very high. Nice portable package - you really could take this anywhere. I watched about an hour of the DVD this morning (sadly had to cut it short - have to get to work) - well shot with clear explanations, and filled with insightful commentary from Bill. To me, that's what makes his packages so compelling. A special bonus for me? His simple deck switch solved a problem I was trying to work out (for a non-card effect - go figure!!!). Money well spent.

Looks like it's "Canadian Postal Christmas" in Japan! Tic-Tacs! Yum!
I've popped a couple and am starting the DVD now. Initial impression is good...

Pack Smart Play Anywhere is an hour and forty minutes of solidly valuable entertainment, methodology, technique and sage advice. It is the total package. Unlike most magic lectures and DVDs, which offer effects that are often unrelated and disjointed, Bill Abbott has provided the magic fraternity with a treatise on every element of planning, scripting, building, transporting, staging, setting, performing and striking a complete show. He provides a case study of a well crafted, theatrically sound show that starts well, flows and builds correctly, makes use of great transitions, demonstrates great prop and pocket management, connection with the audience and so much more. While it is on a modest scale, the information contained in the DVD and lecture notes should prove invaluable to performers at any level of expertise. The accompanying book provides a perfect example of scripting and blocking an act while the DVD clearly demonstrates the show in action. The instruction segments could not be clearer or any more thorough. Bill has absolutely delivered on the entire package even before you open the props and find quality materials for five commercial routines and another for a deck everybody has in their case anyway. Every one of these is a winner and could easily be adapted to almost any performing style or character.

For me, the real bottom line is that I can easily identify routines that I already use that can fit into this philosophy of traveling and performing. While the show would be fine right out of the box, there is plenty of room for additions, subtractions, revisions and adaptations. All in all, this has been an inspiring afternoon and evening at the screen, the page and at play with some great new magic!

Thank you, Bill Abbott!

All the Best!

Top notch package. Everything is as advertised. The props are great quality. The video is very well shot. And Bill is just an all-around likable guy to watch/listen to. Unlike most products that come out, this package actually does serve a purpose and fill a legitimate need. Everyone needs an emergency show kit and having one that packs small/light is a fantastic bonus. As promised, you could literally perform this as is, right out of the box if you want to. Most people, however, will probably not do so but will adapt the concept to effects they like/already perform. IMO, the package comes with a strong opener (5 card opener) and two super strong effects that could both be closers (Smart Ass and Invisible). The other three effects are "middles" in my view. All good effects, but I think a lot of people will swap some or all of those for other effects. I currently open with 5 card opener/box and close with my version of smart ass. But because Pokerface and Invisible Closer are both card effects...making for a total of 4 card tricks, I will likely swap those two out for say Fiber Optics and another non-card effect. But that's just me. You might like the package as is.

The teaching is superb as usual with Bill and you will learn a lot of great material and concepts you can apply to create your own packs smart/small show. Even if you already have some of the effects (I already had all but the tic tac effect), this package is easily worth the price and gets my highest recommendation. If you perform the 5 card opener, the addition of the parlor size cards in double decker format will be worth the price alone. The visibility is ramped up and the packet is now super thin and even more deceptive. My only small negative is that I think an ID should have been included for the invisible closer. Granted everyone should already have one but having a spare would have been a great bonus.

Bottom line: superb and very much worth the price.
