I did not buy it, I learnt it with plain old cards a while back. Personally I dont like it. I dont think its hits that hard, I dont like long effects that dont change aroudn a lot and dont find it gets that great reactions. Ppl say this is the best bang for your buck on penguin, but if you buy card wallets, http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=447
, you get Ultimate Three card Monte, just a cheap verison. id say thats the best bang for your buck if your looking at nice magic for really cheap.
