Great concept - construction and support flaws Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 17th, 2018
PROs:
- The idea and concept are awesome and easy and, if it were not for the flaws and inadequate support I would have given it 5*
CONs:
- it is supposed to come with a Joker to "protect" the special deck but there was none in mine
- there is a link to the video-instruction but there is no forum available on My PenguinMagic to discuss the effect with other purchasers / pose questions
- support at Penguin Magic was unable to answer my questions as they had sold out of the deck with the pre-order and did not have anyone on staff who was familiar with the effect who could answer my question or support a $40 product
- it is possible that my deck is defective because the special treatment needed to create the effect seemed inconsistent (but they couldn't say because, again, there was nobody at Penguin who was familiar with it and they are not expecting to restock till sometime in February)
- I took a chance and corresponded by email with Gregory Wilson (to his magician's email address) to see if he could help me understand somethings that were not explained on the video-instructions but got no response.

Overall, very frustrated and disappointed - and I am someone who has purchased well over 200 effects from Penguin Magic

You have to provide the joker yourself, but it is not required. Email me atzdbarber@liberty.edu if you want some support on this trick, because I had some problems at first but it was a mistake I made. I’m sorry the customer support was not the best.

This is DefenderMX at dmxscan3.liberty.edu.

Look at the email address closely again... he mistakenly didn't put a space in between the "at" and "zdbarber", so it likely should just be zdbarber@liberty.edu.

Is the deck examinable sir? Could you please answer?

It is not, but the way you present it, the spectators should not want to inspect it.
