Sashac,

Is it easy enough for a hobbyist to do? Not a kid, but an adult with a full time job who likes good and easy effects. Practice is fine, just not interested in hours on hours as I do magic for fun for family and friends. No gigs etc. Thanks for your insight.

In the demo the card is never shown from the side. I wonder how normal or thick the card is? The rope through the card was edited so I wonder how that effect truly is? I also wonder how long this will last with regular usage. My card magic is 99% gimmickless because I don't want to have to rely on something breaking/not working. But I am always open to gaffs. I learned a long time ago how gimmicked cards/boxes etc. are just not 100% reliable and got sick of wasting money on them.

Answers to the above questions would be great!

Thanks,
RNK

I bet those angles are tricky with multiple spectators.

It's almost self-working mate.

Well, I drank the Kool-Aid on this, just for fun Smile Ordered about 10 minutes ago.

I have a sneaking suspicion I know how it is done, but its just a guess. I'll know a few days after it ships on the 28th, assuming no delays.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Maybe you can answer my questions I posted above. I am skeptical since GeraintClarke answered someone else's questions but not mine.

Thanks Chessman!

To answer a few of your questions. Yes this can be seen from the side as this is practically a normal card. These will last for years. No heat or special inks. These will 100% not break during performance. The headphone through card was only cut because I filmed the clip myself and couldn't tilt the camera. What you see is what you get. You receive 5 gimmicks ready to go that will last a life time.

I know you weren't RNK but I urge people to please not fish for methods.

Thank you to everyone else so far.

I've ordered as well. I'm pretty positive I know the method. It seems like there will only be one issue here, which may not be a problem since that's quite literally all you would have to worry about.

That said, I am looking forward to receiving it and playing with the gimmicks! The effects all look really great, and I'm very excited. I haven't preordered in a very very long time (if ever.)

Here's to hoping this doesn't get delayed!


Can't wait, thanks for releasing it, Lloyd,

At this point, all we can say is, "Is this effect worth it even if you can only effectively perform it from the same angles as you see in the trailer?" because that is all we have to go on.

For me, the answer is yes. But we won't know for sure until people get it and review. And remember, there are only 999 of these Smile I'm sure that's true, but I can't imagine they wouldn't do another run if it were financially warranted. But I'm certainly not in the know, so take that with a BIG grain of salt.

Lloyd... thanks for your frank reply to RNK! I love reading this forum and am disappointed when people fish (or even worse - reveal) methods!

I just ordered Change and am looking forward to incorporating it into my card routine!
Tada!...

Is it possible to do a full view change of the front of the card? Like Morpheus but with the other side of the card?

I ordered already though.
Can't wait. Thanks!

That's where volume 2 comes in Smile


The only real question I have is what coins can be used with Forge?

Probably a dollar-sized coin.

These are 100% real world practical. We have live performances videos coming over the next coming weeks. We held back because the main video speaks for itself and this is what your audience will and does see. These can be performed from a multitude of practical angles and everything is explained from myself and Daniel Madison in the explanation videos in great detail.

Quite simply; My creation would not be on the market if I did not perform it for real people and get incredible reactions For me, to release magic which is impractical is totally pointless. I leave that sort of business to other companies.

So nice to hear a creator say that Smile

We need more people that perform their creations in the real world before they sell them. I can't stand creators who have clearly never tried out their own product.

We never say never..... but unless someone lets that T-rex off the Island in Jurassic World, and it goes after our warehouse staff, then you'll get your CHANGE as normal.
