Saturn have put this right now, even though it wasn't their mistake.

Good service.

Thanks

No problem David we always look after customers when there is a problem.

I must say when your replacement cards arrived I took look at them and was very surprised how well this works.

I don't know if he's done something different but it works far better than I recall the hundredth Monkey working, just a few feet away in the office it was working was which was quite a funny moment when we amazed ourselves!

It would be nice to see these made smaller if the principle would work in say poker size cards and maybe more generic words so it does not have to be the theme of this effect.

Trying to figure out if I have these cards correct. How many of each should there be?

I see there are gi##i##ed - 15
large - 9
straight up - 15

sound about right?

Can we laminate these cards, Chris? Or will that ruin the workings?


May I suggest this stuff? We used it for maps in the military. Just cover the reverse side and it will protect it extremely well, even rain showers.

It’s a great effect and works well. I would personally only use the the 15 smaller font words providing they past the eye test. It hasn’t let me down yet and the taking of the photo with their phone from about 8ft away makes it untraceable.
I love it, the 9 larger fonted cards are more difficult for the camera and easier to trace the method. I personally don’t feel they are be necesssary.
Lovely piece of kit top marks from me, highly recommended Gaz Smile

Thanks, Saturn Magic for taking care of David. Yes, the 100th Monkey fools me too sometimes! I'm using the same "formula" I did back in the day -- though the background is new. Unfortunately, it will only work on a poker sized card in very bright light. For other generic words, check out some of my other releases especially Narcissus and Pantheon.

John C, that is right, but there are also some extra cards, like the eye-tester, cue sheet card and a couple extra non-gimmicked cards.

Pegasus, that's cool -- I've never used that before.

Gaz, thank you!

Not everyone will need the dim cards, but for some (say, bar magicians), they could prove handy. Shooting in dim light should help hide the gimmickry in the photo.

Bar magicians in dinghy light granted Chris, I haven’t tried it in a really dim setting as yet (but I have in a normal indoor pub).
Normal lighting and even slightly dim seems to work perfectly with the standard gimmicked cards you supply.
Infact it’s brilliant and I have tried it on various spectators as a trial on all different spectrums from day light to what I consider at least very poor lighting.
It works like a charm as long as the test card works which it does in 90% of cases then you are good to go as long as you take the photo as you clearly describe in the tutorial.
It’s golden it really is imho Gaz Smile

A few more comments on this:

"One of the BEST routines in the last decade!"
-Eric Bedard

"Sure, we magicians have the power to say, Ta-Da! Look at me! But after doing this work for a while, we should also realize that we have the power to help and to heal. Feel Better is a wonderful way to express that you do genuinely care about the people in your audience. In the right hands, Feel Better has the potential to change a spectator's outlook on life. What is more magical than that?"
-Professor Phelyx
