This effect kills. The deck is an updated version of Paul Curry’s deck. It’s a better effect this way in my opinion. Anyway, I’ve done this trick a couple of times so far (I only recently got the trick)… And minds were blown. It’s really strong. Nick does a great job teaching it and presenting it.

You must have this confused with the original Paul Curry version because the Penguin version would be a LOT of work to make and that’s even if you’re capable and most magicians aren’t. Talk about arts and crafts, thus would require a ton of it, not to mention the cost of acquiring the materials.

If you compare making one to buying one then 30 bucks is a steal. That’s why they always sell out so quickly.
Lots of magicians love this effect and stock up with several whenever they become available.

But in the meantime you can put together the Curry version pretty easily and cheaply and it’s very close to the Penguin version. I personally prefer the Penguin version but Curry’s is a classic for a reason.

A new batch is in production and will be restocked as soon as printing is complete. Printing takes a little while, but rest assured Touch is not gone forever!

I don't think you're talking about the same thing - I bought TOUCH from Penguin and then made one from the appropriate deck bought on Amazon with slight differences.... You literally only need the deck and a Sharpie.
I'd double check it's actually TOUCH you're talking about Smile

Yes, it's Touch I was referring too. I own a couple of them. I'm not aware that you can buy anything exactly like the Touch deck on Amazon which is why they sell out so quickly on Penguin and there is a waiting list. The slight differences you mention I would consider to be very big differences, as most people who are anxiously awaiting this to be restocked again I believe would agree. It's confusing because if you actually owned Touch you would be aware of the differences between the original and the new version.

Again, as I said previously I believe it is you who is getting this confused with the original Curry version because the deck Curry used is readily available on Amazon.
But hey, if you can show me where you got this deck on Amazon I'll gladly change my tune and it would make a lot of us very happy because the gaffs used in Touch can also be used in many other effects, and I'm not talking about standard DF'ers.

After using Any Card by Richard Sanders for so long, I had forgotten about Touch. I might have to dig this out again - there's something nice about writing the prediction in front of the spectator.

Sorry for not answering this before. It’s a stupid story actually, my wife put my hoodie in the laundry… The inside pocket of the hoodie had the deck in it….. The washing machine ate the deck and that was all she wrote

Alright... I just couldn't wait any longer. I made my own "Touch" deck. It really works the same as the Penguin version.... I loved the. Penguin version, but you can indeed make your own deck if you're willing to do a little bit of arts and crafts. I've been performing it and people love it. What a great effect.
