Twistedace, Yeah that's the one! I think it could work really well with it! Possibly get a blank set and have them say Maybe/ Not Telling. I think it would be wicked!

I've also just put together a jeopardy style routine. Talk about Russian Roulette and how you feel as though you could tell which chamber the bullet has been loaded into just by the body language of someone alone. Have them load it into a chamber in their mind. You also place some money on the table to aid with the danger. You call out a number and have them imagine if that slot in the gun is empty or has the bullet in. Eventually you guess correctly and to prove it, you have a prediction written earlier which proves you knew all along!

Im just loving this little gem! So many great ideas already! Smile

He states at the end of the dvd that Alakazam has a bunch of ideas and recommended registering this effect with Alakazam to gain access. I did, but AAthere were no pdfs or videos with any additional routines.

My copy of Decisions came in the mail today. The gaff/method is simpler than I expected, but simple is good; will still need to practice to get it down. Although the sound in the opening performance part of the DVD is not real good, the teaching and demonstrating part is clear and cogent. The accompanying pdf teaches a good range of possible effects, though the pdf is the 10 year old version that came with Decisions when it first came out ion 2006; still good stuff though. The dvd mentions that some more demos and teaching might be available on the Alakazam website, but so far I have not been able to find and access it.

So does anyone have this that also had the first version?

If so is it different? Better? Different? Worse?

I have filmed another routine for this and sent it over to Peter. I believe they're filming additional handling at the moment which will most probably be put up in the coming days!

They did say the website wouldn't have anything for a while until more peoplecontributed. The did itself says to put the disk into the computer for PDFs of the routines. As far as function is concerned, I do not know anything about the previous sets, but the set that I have is extremely smooth and works great.

Not sure if this is useful but they are better made than mine with business cards (-:

I didn't buy the previous version but these ones are great. Very smooth handling and invisible.
I wish they were selling refills

Speaking of business cards, it would be great if they could somehow make these in business card size that you could then stick onto the back of your business card.
Just seems like a more natural thing you would write something on the back of.
Never owned this gimmick but I assume you couldn't trim these to fit.

Agreed but I wouldn't worry. Smoothyness and practicality are more important here. The gimmicks really look good and very easy to handle.

And with a bit of thinking you can justify and find a good presentation for you.

The iperation of the gimmick is incredibly smooth! Ive had no issues with it whatsoever. In terms of how convincing it is, ive been showing it to friends and colleagues over the past couple of days and no one has sussed it. I've been mostly performing Ran Pinks handling which I think is amazing and it hits so much harder than I had anticipated! The PDF on a Mac can be found when you place the disk into the Mac, go to Finder, click on the icon for the dvd and you'll see it just above the disk files! Rams routine can be found in there! I spoke to Peter earlier and they're hoping to get some bonus material on the registered products page around Monday!

Either way, I still love this and I'm having so much fun with it!!

I agree. For the routine I am working on, I need another set of Yes/No regular cards.
I would be happy to pay 40 bucks for another "gaffed" card, but just for two regular cards, I hesitate...

Maybe a tiny bit of fanning powder would help?

I wish they sold refills, too.

And, I do hope they put up some new routines on the Alakazam web site.

Maybe it's me but I am finding the gimmick difficult and unreliable. No way this would consistently work as the dvd instructs. A big disappointment for me. I am thinking of returning it.

Why doesn't it work? To tight? What happens when you slide it?

Without giving away too much, it doesn't completely work without multiple motions

Cotham, I've been using mine for nearly a week now with no issues. Works beautifully and constantly. Maybe you have an issue with your gaff.

Without giving too much away, I tried mine out for the first time on the wife Saturday and found that the action didn't go as it should and I had part of the gimmick come out one side of the card. Hope if I return it the next gimmick will be ok. Has anyone else had this issue?
