Just go to any magic forum and you'll see that magician's that do magic for a living say things like
"this is the best tape I own!" and "This is one video I'm never going to get rid of." Now that it's
out on DVD, it's a steal for 30 bucks!
This is by far one of my favorite... probably my
favorite card DVD I own! I don't know what people are talking about with Greg's teaching. I
thought it was excellent. The only thing he DOESN'T explain is "Double Decker" but you'll notice
it's not even listed in the contents on this site or on the back of the DVD case. It's a cool trick
and if you know a little bit about card magic, Greg offers you a hint on how it's done and if you go
back and watch the performance, you'll easily figure it out. He gives you the ok on doing this, or
if you can't, he tells you where to find the explanation of the routine.
To me though, the
other tricks that were taught are absolutely incredible and with many of them, nobody has done
anything like it in the past. I thought the teaching was excellent, the tricks were excellent and
honestly, I was fooled by some of the stuff and I've been doing card magic for a long time. I love
watching Greg perform! If you're just starting out, get Easy to master card miracles with Michael
Ammar or Born to Perform with Oz Pearlman, but if you want to do some incredible card magic that you
won't see a lot of other magician's doing... get this DVD it's well worth it!

I think the reviews on this site have been a little too forgiving to Greg Wilson.
I am an
experienced working magician and can do all of the tricks on this dvd except 'boomerang card of
death'. The only reason I can do all the tricks though is because I was familiar with most of the
moves/sleights anyway. The problem I've got with this dvd is if I spend £20 on a teaching dvd I
expect it to include in depth explanations not just a quick explanation and then move on. This is
the first dvd I have bought of Greg Wilsons and I would hesitate to buy another because of this. A
great example of giving an in depth explanation is Daniel Garcia's 'Torn'. If any of you own that
dvd you will know what I mean.
I've given card stunts 3 stars because even though the
explanations are poor the tricks he is performing are very good. This could have been a great dvd if
Greg hadn't been so lazy.
I would recommend this dvd only to people who are experienced
enough to already know the sleights on this dvd as I would hate to learn any of the moves from
scratch from here.

Gregory Wilson has to be one of my favorite creators on penguin. Consistently putting out strong
effects such as bandwith, pyrotechnic, revolution, and more. This is no different. However, this set
of tricks is geared more towards the intermediate performer. If you're not familiar with different
types of palms and have poor crowd management, get ready for some practice. The boomerang card shot,
although not easy, is my favorite out of all the tricks on this disc. Overall, card stunts brings a
fairly strong routine/arsenal of tricks to the table, but is also a good lesson in misdirection by
Wilson as well.
Gregory Wilson will NEVER fail to amuse you. If you buy this DVD, your bound to find something that
you would love and you would use.
Not only that, if you pick it up as an Open box,
whhooooododo, that's a sale I won't forget.
Pick it up, it's pretty cool.
out of 10, would purchase Greg Wilson stuff again
This was the first performance dvd of Gregory Wilson that I saw, and it was dazzling. This is a
nice way to see an entire act from start to finish along with the interludes and spectator
My favorite is boxspring, followed by phoenix aces, and the revelations in
spades. These are not self working tricks and sleight of hand is involved.
This DVD has tricks for almost all skill levels. Lots of great stuff to learn and perform. I
Gregory gives a command performance! Bravo!!! I highly respect this man! By all means, if you are
working on first class card magic and performance... Buy This!!!
This is one of my favorite DVDs. I really like this DVD and the routine that is performed in the
beginning. Getting to watch Greg perform is an invaluable lesson in audience interaction and
management. The tricks are very well-routined and thought out. You will have to practice, but the
material is well within the reach of anyone who puts in the work. Joke in the box is an awesome
'card under the glass' style routine and Reset with a Hook is one that you will be performing all
This was the first magic video I ever got, I remember getting it on VHS and watching it over and
over. Every effect on here is simply brilliant and you learn so, so ,so many sleights and effects
which make it excellent value for money. As always Greg Wilson is funny and friendly in the
explanations which make it a pleasure to learn from him.
here is a DVD that is a great one to aspire to. Wilson shows some wonderful tricks, and with enough
time, just about anyone could master these illusions. Sometimes, I've found that beginners have a
little more time on their hands, so this would be a great video for them. If you're looking for a
quick trick to learn and wip out on the fly, this is probably not for .
