Wow this is the 1st year I cant vote. I bought nothing worth voting for that came out in 2018. I did however buy some really good stuff that came out years prior.

Since you are required to have 50 posts to cast a vote anyway, we should have the voting (i.e. this thread) in a restricted area and then post the winners in either this forum or better yet in the latest and greatest because that is what we are really voting on anyway.

It would make tallying easier because you wouldn't have to double check post totals to see if the member is eligible to vote.

All in favor say AYE.


As a member who does not have 50 posts it is valuable to see all of the different items from the past year people are voting on.

In previous years the final post would announce the winners as well as having a list of all the effects that received votes.
As I mentioned before that could then be posted in a public forum. It shouldn’t be difficult to perhaps make a couple small edits where necessary in order to disguise the names of certain effects.

Every year, I think "The Thurston Award" is scattered as if each users voted for themselves. Would not you like to quit it already?

I like the idea of disguising the name of effects.....all of them if possible.

Houdin
Isolated - Kieron Johnson
Copycat - David Parr
Deformer - Menny Lindenfield

Isolated was quite groundbreaking for me as I did not have a desire to get into cube magic before. It changed all that.
Copycat is quite simply one of my favorite card tricks of all time. The presentation idea(s), the ease of performing, and the reactions make this one truly brilliant and deserving of recognition. If we were doing a price to magical impact comparison - Copycat wins hands-down.
Deformer - An amazing device with which you will use to perform amazing miracles with ease.

Honorable mention: Sixth Sense 3.0. I have not had much of a chance to play around with this yet, but I suspect this one will be a go-to in my walk-arounds. Destiny Deck is also great.
...forever curious
