I'm just getting reacquainted with magic after taking fifteen years off. Previously, I used a lot
of gimmicks and my sleight was mediocre at best. This time around, being a bit older and more
patient, I decided to focus mainly on card tricks that can be done with a standard deck of cards.
This DVD was the PERFECT purchase. Oz does an amazing job of explaining each move and shows you how
to incorporate most of them into a routine. After about a month of practicing about an hour or two
a day, I have mastered a majority of the moves taught on the DVD and am doing three of the four
routines with ease. Many of these techniques are taught in other various downloads, but with this
DVD you are getting all of them in one place and I've found that learning other routines have been
much, much easier after spending some time with this DVD.

If you are new to magic then this is what you want!
Oz is a great teacher, you will learn
everything you need to get started as a magican.
All the basics are perfectly explained and you
will lean them without any trouble.
The tricks Oz performs amd teaches are prety good
The tricks are also well explained, but they are not advanced, however they are very
visual and they'll blow your audiences mind!
So if you are a beginner and you want to learn
something about magic then this is a MUST!
Congrats to Oz on such a good beginners dvd.

I HAVE TO SAY, THIS DVD HAS EXCELLENT FLOURISHES. EVEN IF YOU ARE BEST MAGICIAN I STILL HAVE TO SAY
THE FLOURISHES LIKE THE LE PAUL SPREAD ARE ALWAYS GOING TO BE USED AS AN OPENER. I GOT THIS DVD
AWHILE AGO, AS I GOT BETTER IN MAGIC THE SOME OF THE MOVES I STILL USE ARE FROM THIS DVD. THIS DVD
STARTED ME IN CARD MAGIC AND THE FIRST TRICKS I USED WERE FROM THE DVD. I STILL REMEMBER THE
REACTIONS IN PEOPLES FACE WHEN I SHOWED THEM THESE AMAZING TRICKS.THAY ALSO REMEMBER THE TRICKS I
SHOWED THEM AS A WOULD WALK TO CLASS AND HEAR STUDENTS TALKING ABOUT THE EFFECT. THANKS OZ

Ordered this DVD after getting back into magic after quite a few years away from it. Decided to
focus on cards and found this DVD recommended a lot on different magic forums. It really is one of
the best card magic DVD's to buy if you want to perform some great effects. The ACR moves are worth
the price alone. When I first tried the card to mouth move I really never thought it would work but
it did...and it does everytime!! It always get's an awesome reaction. Oz's misdirection ideas are
always dead on and they do honestly work! I have had this DVD for over a year now and I always go
back to it and find some new little bit of info I missed before. If you want to learn impressive
card magic from a great instructor....Buy It!!

This is one of the first DVDs I purchased from Penguin and it is one of the best. I don't use the
tricks in it as much now but I used them all the time when I was a beginner. If you are getting in
to card magic get this DVD. You will love it!!!!

This is card magic at it's finest. Simple and powerful and gives you a jumpstart. I got this when I
first started in magic and I still go back to it to this day for refreshers. I really like the 2
card monte in this set because you don't need to know that risky sleight that has to be done quickly
It's used as a memory test as well which is a plus because it doesn't look like you are out
to get their money and just fool them.
You get all your basic sleights here that
jumpstart your card handling and magic.
What stood out was Oz' teaching that really made me
enjoy the things I was learning. My thanks goes out to you Oz!

I love this DVD. I use these routines all the time. I also use many of the moves taught in this
DVD in other routines. I often go back and rewatch this DVD to sharpen up on things. I have had it
for over 6 years but will never get tired of it. Oz's style of teaching is perfect for me.
I highly recommend buying this, especially if you're new to card magic.

This is the first DVD I bough on penguinmagic, and all i can say is wow... At first I was a bit
apprehensive because of the cost and because i am a relative beginner, but I bought the dvd, and
after one weekend I am performing all of the tricks on the video proficiently. Not only are they
hard hitting, but they leave you completely examinable at the beginning and end!
Not only are
the routines great, but OZ is a great teacher, and shows you in-depth every move and sleight
necessary, and many that aren't but that will make you a better card magician. If you are just
starting card magic, or even just want to improve your fudamentals, I would HIGHLY recommend this
