Mine arrived yesterday. Tiny bit of fiddling, learning and setting up and it's ready to go. Wow it is absolutely stunnning, versatile and pretty much bomb proof. Thanks Angelo

Neurostand, it's ridiculously examinable, but they will only give it a cursory look anyway....it's just a box!

The Gift lends itself perfectly as utility device in combination with John Bannon's "Perfect" from Destination Zero page 112

First performance tonight for my wife who literally picks apart every trick I do. I used a decent PK R**g instead of the tt. Both the cards and the box were bombproof.She deliberately kept dealing for ages but spotted nothing and showed absolutely no interest in the box at all because it is after all..just a box! Love it, if it gets past her it will get past anyone. Looking forward to taking it out and about and blowing people away!

Didn't your Wife notice you had a Pk ring on ? Or do you wear one all the time otherwise surely that would arouse suspicion where as theTT is never seen ? I realise a PK maybe an alternative if the audience doesn't know you so well but your Wife would have noticed it I would of thought Tarik 😊

Holy crap that's BRILLIANT! Accomplishes the same effect (a little more procedure heavy, granted, but some might even think of this as a good thing due to the extra feeling of randomization), and leaves you with a 100% normal, fully examinable deck. Oh man, I'm gonna go get a "Perfect" deck ready right now! Bless you, stranger. Great idea/find!

I have to say, very disappointed so far on this one. Received it a couple days ago. I assume it is from the latest batch as I had to pre-order from Penguin and wait a month or so. The online video instruction begins with apologetic advice how to fix something if the effect does not work perfectly. For close to $80.00? So far "the fix" has not fixed it, and the so-called "sweet spot" remains elusive. I have one more thing to try, which will involve ordering an item off the internet to add to the gimmick. My impression is that this was rushed through production to take advantage of the interest stimulated by rave reviews. No doubt -- the CONCEPT is brilliant. The execution, at least on my model, is not.

You probably have the magnet round the wrong way in your TT ie the wrong polarity . It wants to repel not attract that's why not all Pk rings work with it . It's an easy fix and well worth it as is a marvellous effect . If you can't work it out pm me and I will buy it off you less 20% as a spare regards Tarik 😊

Thanks for the offer Tarik ... but the polarity is correct. It is either not strong enough or the "you know what" are sticking. In fact the "How to Fix it" video that came with it discusses them potentially sticking and suggests a remedy that so far is not working. I'll keep working on it and plan to add another m-----. I'm never looking for something to go out of the box and "into the show", but am disappointed that I cannot yet have confidence in the working of this. Curious to know if anyone else received one with the "how to fix it" video and what your experience has been.

Looks like you got a defective item (it can happen)
Contact your dealer and arrange a replace.

Ouch... I always wait after a release to let the bugs show themselves. I too ordered from Penguin and expect it to arrive in a couple of days, thinking it also must have been from a new batch that had been "corrected." Agree with everything you posted, but I will not be trying to "fix" anything.

Nothing to fix just turn the TT magnet around it will take you less then a minute . It's well worth it the effect slays Tarik 🙂

@JackMagic A specific amount of Gold was to be made. In the first batch the factory did not make enough, hence why there are some available in the second batch.

The boxes are ready to go. Occasionally there may be the odd issue it seems (which has an easy fix), but yes the boxes are ready to go.

Any ideas why there are 3 blank cards included - at least in the 2nd batch?

For those that have received your trick from the second batch, when you open your deck, just deal them down reversing the order and you will be good to go.

I have been a semi-professional and hobbyist for around 40 years.
I can say in all honesty, this is one THE finest piece of magic I have seen and purchased.

It ticks all the boxes ... true genius.
I only hope the secret remains so ...
