Superb! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 3rd, 2018
Wow in a word superb act! 5 stars
Robert shares is close up Magic castle act, 4 Tricks cleverly woven in to a carefully scripted act.
He opens with McDonald Aces each phase builds to a different vanish of an ace. These are not your standard vanishes and if you are looking to charge up this effect, I highly recommend you study his adaptations.
Next he performs one of the best none App iPhone trick with a borrowed Apple IPhone from a member of the audience. What I liked about this trick is that at no time do you ask the spectator to open their phone. It uses their calculator in a clever and entertaining way. This was shown on the trailer and along with McDonald Aces was the main reason for me buying this download.
Next he performs an interesting Chosen Card At Any Number type of effect. This leads into the finale with David Regals Clarity Box where the surprise ending will catch you of guard the first time you see him perform it!

I rate this act very highly, sure if you are just into magic tricks you could say “What only 4 Tricks ??” To do so would miss the point of this new format from Penguin Magic. You are paying for how these performers structure and script an ACT.
This in my opinion is worth more money than the standard trick lectures were you learn a bunch of tricks and no thought is given to Why or How you would bother to perform them.
The IPhone trick alone was worth the price of the Act Lecture to me, not only the effect but a clever presentation to perform it which envolves the audience as well.
This is not the usual presentation for the Clarity Box and you will learn about creative thinking when you see this performed.

Really really clever stuff! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 21st, 2018
This one is so good, that I want to rate it 1 star and encourage you not to buy it so there will be potentially one less person that knows this information!

Robert hit it out of the park teaching his ENTIRE real life Magic Castle act that he designed to entertain AND fool magicians with. There is alot of clever thinking in this lecture, and pretty much everything is worth the price by itself.

-McDonalds Aces is SO clever using different methods for each vanish.
- the iphone work... simply amazing.
-the game of chance with the cards is solid, his magician bluffs are just fun (and they worked on me).
- the matchbox and Clarity Box... Brilliant. Just brilliant. Even if you don't want to use it, you'll get ideas for how to use magic props in new ways.

Robert describes every little detail. Not only how things work, but WHY they work and how he came up with them. This is really really solid and easily one of the best Penguin Lectures I have (and that's saying something because I have some really good ones!)

Can't imagine how anyone would regret buying this one! Get it.

Great Training for an Act Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 4th, 2018
I saw this act at Magic Live and it was good. Seeing it again under much less rushed circumstances made it even better. This is a great example of how an act can be much more than just "here's another trick." The routines follow one another and there is a clear reason for each of them which then leads to an incredible finish.
If you would like to learn about creating a real theatrical show, this will be gold to you.

Saw this Live and Loved it!!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 4th, 2018
This routine was so much fun to watch at Magic Live. Robert does an amazing job of putting these effects together so each one lands.

I think my favorite part was the fact that most of the effects are incredibly easy, which allows you to focus on presentation and audience engagement (2 things Robert seems to excel at).

I highly recommend it!

Off-stage work, transforming dry stuff Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 4th, 2018
Two key values of this product:

* Shows you that diabolical effects can be achieved by doing lots of off-stage work.

* Shows you how dry, technical features of the iPhone can be presented as though they were magical features!

Robert Ramirez Live Act-Excellent Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2018
This has got to be one of the best lectures that Penguin has ever released. The other thing that makes this standout is the performer hmself. Roberto has vast theatrical experience and his staging and review of exactly where all the props are positioned and why they are placed where they are is a pure lesson in artistic showmanship. Roberto is a charming entertainer and a thoughtful instructor. You cannot go wrong even if you never use any of the stellar effects he teaches here because you will learn the importance of how to craft a magic act not just perform a series of magic tricks.

DOESNT WORK ON NEW IPHONE UPDATE Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 17th, 2018
This was one of the best lectures. It really was. Part of the reason I bought this was for the calculator affect. I loved it and performed it like crazy, but I just discovered it doesn’t work on IOS 12(the new update)!!!! Really disappointed that it won’t work with that software, but overall great lecture.
