I have the gift. I think it's great! The box is very well designed and after watching the online training clips I do believe this can be a great utility tool!
Ustaad mention something that I've tried out only a few hours ago and it's 100 percent sure fire!

I personally think The Gift is absolutely brilliant!

Most of us don't care if you figured it out watching the trailer, after all it should be meant to perform for laymen (and not for other performers).

My mind is spinning with more and more ideas, Angelo you're a genius!

I read page 1 and 17 on this thread, and now know exactly how this prop works. Lol.

Actually, I suspected as much from watching the video, but nevertheless, it looks pretty good, and I'm seriously tempted - but it seems there is also an issue with the manufacture. I have to be honest, if I were the creator/distributor, I'd do two things: offer immediate replacements for all defective units, and improve quality control so that defective units aren't shipped in the first place.

Why would you want people discussing home repairs on a thread like this (and giving away a whole lot about the method in the process)?

The gift is one of the best "props" I have purchased and one routine offered as a bonus is a superb piece of magical thinking. Thank you Angelo for releasing this. As a purchaser I have found no problems. It is genius.
Best wishes John

As one who ordered this, but is still awaiting its shipment, I wonder whether the 'issue' will be remedied on boxes later manufactured...

I really believe that anyone can have a good use for this trick. What you see on the video is exactly what will happend without so much work involved, so there is no reason to keep the trick in your drawer...
Plus, there are so many nices ideas coming out to use it with no cards...
If you like what you have seen, go for it, otherwise don't, but in both case, you will be right ;-)

I find it a shame that whenever a new effect comes out the method is ALWAYS exposed after a short time. In my opinion the "Latest and Greatest" should not be used for questions that potentially expose methods, perhaps "Inner Thoughts" is a more acceptable place to discuss such matters as it is not accessible to the general public.



I mentioned the same thing a few weeks ago and reported a few posts. The threads I mentioned them on.....still have the talk of routining and methods, yet my posts were deleted. I think we should get back to this being an area of discussing the new item and if it is a good one. Routining and gaff talk should be done down below as it used to be. Latest and Greatest has so many discussions going on these days.

It makes no odds at all!!

If you are in Blackpool

Take look round the dealers hall and watch Mark Mason in action , he lets everyone on
The secret BEFORE they purchase any item,

Fact is he will sell more tricks than any other dealer in Blackpool this weekend !!

I am very impressed and really pleased with this! Yes, the "problem" is annoying but the responsiveness from Angelo and Titanas has been fantastic. The thinking behind this is excellent. Highly recommended.

Lol - ummm not quite true... Yes he is there which yes means it's is a fact - well done. But, you cant say its a fact that he will sell the most at Blackpool because 1 the conversation hasn't ended yet (even if you did know a genuine poll as to which dealer is selling the most)and 2 no one would ever really know the truth as to who sold what Smile

Hope your enjoying the convention guys

Mark Mason literally holds court when he demonstrates. He remembers faces, and treats everyone like they are the only one in the room. He will no doubt sell more than anyone else. Other dealers will be lined up to buy from him.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

What would have really blown me away is if she had shuffled the deck and the prediction worked. Sometimes people will have a tendency to want to shuffle a deck of cards once pulled out of the box. But I suppose there is an out for that if that happens. We all have the basic idea of how this works. And the video has a small hint visible. This reminds me of Paul Harris' One and Only Trick.

Got my prordered one from Vanishing in Blackpool nice idea to save on transportation costs. I didn't have any issues with it after working it in a bit
and very happy with this so versatile utility prop. Lends itself to be used with XACTO nicely as well.
