Daryl's ambitious card routine is one of the best out there. There is so much stuff packed into this
DVD it's crazy. Daryl goes into pretty good detail when explaining the trick and after you watch it
you'll come away with a pretty good routine. Get it for the tied up deck. The cards are tied, you
put the card in the middle and it still gets to the top. A great find.

Hi! This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.
Daryl's Ambitious Card DVD is a
must have for all card workers! ADD TO CART NOW! Finish this review after.
Daryl's Ambitious Card from his book, Ambitious Card Omnibus, many many years ago, and it continues
to be a staple in my magic performances to this day. The effect is classic, killer, and amazing.
This video is exactly like the book, with the benefit of being able to see and enjoy the trick and
its many fantastic qualities for yourself.
There are many phases you can put into an
ambitious card routine, and you are going to learn a lot here. I give it 4 stars because I'm always
a little wary about videos. When I learn this from the book, I was able to easily put my own patter
and style into it, because honestly I had no other choice. With video, it's harder because of the
temptation to mirror exactly what you see (because Daryl does it so good). You have to actually work
hard NOT to do exactly the same performance as Daryl with this.
It's a great video and
should be purchased. If you are reading this review then you should ADD TO CART right now. You'll

I have received this a couple of days ago and I would have written a review a couple of days ago but
I haven't stopped watching this! This dvd is amazing, Daryl is a amazing teacher. I have watched
this like 50 times already and not only does it get better every time but I also learn something new
every time. Ok there is your review and if you need me you know where to find me, watching this dvd.
Daryl's Ambitious Card DVD taught me more about the routine then I've been able to gather over the
past year through other DVDs, websites, and YouTube. To be honest, some of the moves could have a
bit more explanation, but he gives you more than enough moves to put together a variety of routines.
They range from simple to difficult, so there's material for all skill levels. If you've been
working on your Ambitious Card routine (or would like to develop one), leverage this DVD.
This is absolutely the best path to take if you want to learn the Ambitious Card Routine. Daryl
first performs his Ambitious Card Routine, and then he teaches it to you move by move!! I really got
a lot out of the additional techniques section of the DVD. If you already went through Daryl's
Encyclopedia of Card Sleights you will know some of the moves. However a lot of it was brand new to
me. I particularly liked the Knockout Control. Great Buy!!!
I have never been much into card magic.. however with the huge variety of card tricks and effects I
have started to include them little by little. I had gotten several card tricks and all of them
mentioned "you can use this along with your ambitious card work" well.. being a professional amateur
magician I figured it would be useful to learn this ambitious card they were talking about not
knowing what the ambitious card was I did my search here on Penguin, I am glad that my search on
Penguin pulled this one up. For me being a professional amateur this was perfect !! I love the
teaching that Daryl offers even showing the how too on the ending of the routine. I have started to
use this with my other routines and am now starting get a flow through from one routine to the next
and am starting to become a fan of card magic.
I gave it a 4 stars because \i have been doing ambitious card routines for many years now and just
want to learn amything I could have missed. this dvd is very good for a medioker learner. and the
wrap- around deck trick takes a lot of preparation.
this not only had daryl's award winning acr, but it has millions of different moves. if your
thinking of making your own acr, buy this dvd. he also has an idea of the best ambitious card climax
in the world, i think. the only downside, is that its extremely tiring to make that gimmick.
Daryl DVD's are always great value.
Daryl does his performance (live) then step by step
explains the performance. You do need to construct a gimmick to do the final phase, but it's very
straight forward to make, and if you want to you could purchase it. And as per usual Daryl provides
many extra techniques and moves to modify and add to your ambitious card routine.
presentation is great, great lighting and camera work.
A top quality DVD.
