I tried this at a school leaving dinner for 11 year olds on the basis that if I can get it past kids I can get it past adults. The reaction was very underwhelming, I went back to the WOW trick and they loved that. I will be returning mine.

There are a couple more iterations on Adam Wilber's instagram page - one of a complete card change, and another with a sharpie printed on, which you then 'pluck' off the card, whilst tilting the card to make the image disappear.

Assuming these new versions are already manufactured and ready to go, I doubt you're going to get any comments from Elusionist about this first batch, as they want to sell the second (and third?) lot.


And I came SOOOOOO close to buying that one also. It looked so great. I have to admit, this experience has really made me a lot more buy-shy. Buying on-line is nice and all, but nothing beats a good magic shop....which don't really exist in Washington anymore unfortunately.

Just to be fair to Ellusionist, ignore their hype! I've never pre-ordered or been sucked in by this. No. Go to Ellusionist's site and look at their Playing Card lineup. The Ghost Deck. All the gaff versions. The Black Tiger Deck. The Arcane Deck. You won't find these anywhere else!

They have The Messado Rings! The INFORMANT Wallet, Black Sponge Balls, some serious custom coins, and a nice looking Scotch & Soda set. Let the hype roll right off! This is a GREAT place to shop! Smile

Probably damage control. It keeps people from citing ad copy for paypal disputes. Just more deception; however, may not work in their favor. I have never seen such anger sparked over a bad trick before in my life so that should say something about how people feel about it. They also seem to have stopped issuing return authorizations.

Doubt it. Doesn't seem to effect other companies, i.s Sansmind.

We have one person so far that is having good results with Change. Is there anyone else reading this forum, anyone at all, that is also having great results with live performances as well? The reason I ask is that I cant find any of my friends or anyone else having luck with it besides Maddy.

It just seems odd to me that I can not find a single person I know who purchased this effect that finds it usable. An honest question for the group.

Ask Ellusionist, they told me the positive response was overwhelming.

With respect, they also told us this was the only colour change we'd ever need.

It is if you only do one color change. I always advertise that I offer the last change of clothes you will ever need.

I just submitted my review on the Ellusionist site. We'll see if they post it. I reviewed it fairly, I think, but only gave it 1 star. There are 12 reviews but didn't recognize any names from the Café'. Out of 1000 sold, 12 reviews ranging from 3 to 5 stars isn't exactly what I'd call overwhelmingly positive, as they stated to me.

I copied and pasted my review posts from here into 1 post in the review section on their Forum in response to the "they were disappointed by the simplicity of the method" & "they didn't want to put in the effort re: angles" malarky.

Can't assume honesty in any section of their site, sadly.

So we should be fair to them by ignoring what they say themselves, in their own advertising material, about their own product?

I do not know the people at Ellusionist or what they have or have never done, but my experience is that most magic shops I have been to are staffed by demonstrators and not active performing magicians. If this is the situation with them I can understand why they were smitten by this product. If they are staffed by performing magicians then there is no excuse.

The reviews from the 3rd to 10th July = 12 only and no negative feed back. They tell us they have had overwhelming positive feed back and they are out of stock on the first batch.

I wonder where all the other reviews are,Mmmmm makes you wonder doesn't it !!!

I would feel comfortable saying that Brad Christian and Lloyd Barnes are in the latter category enough to be held accountable for their products and marketing.

Change arrived today. Arguably the most hyped trick of all time (but certainly this year). Did it live up to the hype? well in truth; no, not really! But it is pretty cool / fun to play with.

A game changer? Well again; no! The reason if nothing else, is simple; you couldn't perform it frequently enough to change any games. You wont for instance be doing the red/blue change at a wedding for a group in my opinion, unless you are very brave. Not an issue per se and not a bad trick because of that, but the hype was so massive and in my opinion, E should have said there are lighting and significant angle restrictions for some cards. If they had; I think people's expectations would be a bit lower and they'd have still sold lots.

In Summary; good for camera, not so great for live performance unless you can control the angles very well. Don't expect this to be something you do walkaround or anywhere you cant carefully control the line of sight.

Once I film it (the reason I bought it) I think my kids will enjoy playing with the cards so I wont lose any sleep over this one, but I have to say; it may be my age but I prefer the sort of marketing that places like rsvp and alakazam do. They tell you about a product honestly and without excessive hype, they answer questions honestly to help you decide if its for you or not and then support you and forums once its live. For me; the hype was just a bit too much and as a consequence people are gunning for E on forums. I sort of don't think you can blame them.

It's is very clear E are selling to the non working magicians

The bedroom magician who likes to film a YouTube video to show to mates

Nothing about this or most of its products are workers

As for the reviews the same people write the positive reviews the
Other ones end up in the bin ( unlike penguin who post both good and bad reviews)

Hopefully the next thing that is hyped by E or Sanns Minds
People will remember
