Love at First Sleight - Bonus Creator Mini-Course Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 29th, 2019
I love this little trick! :) It's unique, organic, simple to do, and impressive to laymen.

When I watched the full presentation, I immediately figured it out. I think most magicians can figure this one out. But we perform to impress laymen... and I think this one does it.

Are there any sleights or moves? Yes. There are two moves you'll need to perform. But are very easy and will require very little if any practice.

Is the performance like the demo? Yes. The video is indeed edited to protect the method, but it's a good honest demo.

Impromptu? Arts & Crafts? No. You'll need to prepare this... but it's nothing complicated at all. And you can reuse your prepared work.

Is this a keeper? Yes. It's a fun trick. If you like coffee shop work, this is a crowd-pleaser.

How's the teaching? As usual, Greg does a great job teaching. The explanation didn't go needlessly long.

Any bonuses? No. But yes. There were no extra tricks... HOWEVER, honestly this is the best part, Greg and Dave basically started giving tips, a mini-course you could say, on their process of brainstorming and creating tricks. Honestly, this section alone was worth the money you'll pay to learn this trick! It was gold.

I highly recommend getting this trick. Not only will you get a seemingly impossible trick, you'll get a little education on how to create your own tricks. I'm very happy with this trick. I give this 4.5 stars out of 5... 5 I generally save for mind melting tricks. Even though I could instantly see how the trick was done (thus making me a little apprehensive to perform it... I just have to remind myself that laymen don't watch as closely as magicians. It's a safe trick. It really is), I still want to give it a little higher rating because of the seeming magicality of it.

4.5 out of 5... Get it! Great job, Greg and David!

I love the Penguin community and hope that I can someday contribute my own product. :-) Thanks for reading and for any (hopefully positive, but either way, at least kind) feedback.

Best I've Bought in 2019. Period Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2019
This is hands down the easiest, best and most valuable effect of the year. Included in this is a utility move that a 5 year old can do and which will serve you the rest of you r magical life with hundreds of tricks. Just got the easiest and most deceptive deck switch in the world for a few bucks with this video too! I love this! Suggestion when you buy it - You can do the SCOOT again at the end to get another phase. For me after the sword and the hook and shirt change, you have a killer ending and downbeat. Use what Greg has taught on the video to end with a BLANK (normal) sleeve. The entire effect now has three phases and ends with a question of what the heck did they really see???? Hope you guys like this ending. BUY, BUY, BUY!

Visual, impromptu and a real fooler Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2019
More coffee shop magic with very little prep and very quick reset. All you need to pull this off are some coffee sleeve, a felt tip pen, a couple of very simple moves which are not really moves at all and a little showmanship. Gregory refers to one of these slights as ‘invisible and hidden in plain sight’. Now you are ready to go out and really fool some unsuspecting spectators. You will also learn a little “sleight of mouth”, a way that really sells this trick and the concept of which you can use in conjunction with other routines you are already doing, cards, coins … doesn’t matter. Feel free to change the drawings on the sleeves to fit your own patter and personality, the choice is yours. This is a very cute effect for for a very small investment of money and time. Try it, you will like it.

Another great coffee shop trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2019
Greg Wilson is a master of audience management and misdirection, but Preconsleeved is simple and straightforward. There are two simple moves. The rest is showmanship (which Greg has in spades).

The necessary psychology is built in to the routine and there are no mechanical gimmicks or magnets. No sticky stuff or arts and crafts. Plus, even if you can’t draw, you can do this trick!

Greg refers to the effect as voodoo in the presentation, but I like his other idea that they dress the same because they are twins. I can imagine all sorts of variations in the presentation. I’m working on patter that revolves around doppelgängers, or alternate timelines and portals, myself.

Great work Greg and David!!

Impromptu magic fun Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2019
Greg has adapted card moves to something far less suspect and gives you a great opportunity to create a magic moment which organically fits you and your style! Easy to do. Easy to adapt to a custom presentation. Fun to be a part of.

By the time they know what is supposed to happen, the work is already over, the big finish is all ready to spring on them!

You will absolutely be doing this!!!

It's Mostly Good Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2019
On the minus side, it uses a move I positively detest, but it's used only once and it's done nonchalantly, so it's a small minus. On the positive side, you'll probably learn a very effective switch.

It's a good trick.

Preconsleeved by Gregory Wilson and Dave Gripenwaldt Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2019
Holy Moly did I just learn a sweet move !!! Preconsleeved is a great trick, well worth the price. What comes with it, in my opinion is worth way more than that. Maybe some of you have seen it, I definitely haven't. If I had, I would have been using it every day. You'll see exactly what I mean when you watch the tutorial. The trick itself is visual and catchy, great for coffee shop magic. This is a winner in so many ways !!!

I'm getting to this review a little later than everyone else. I've read all the others and largely agree with them. I want to write the following as I didn't see it covered elsewhere.

I should start with the positive. This is an impressive little trick. Not too difficult to figure out for the magician, but it really works for laymen. Depending on how you pace it, this is probably a 3-4 minute quick routine. Gregory Wilson is excellent at engaging with audiences, as you can see in the video, so the more you can do the same, the better the effect will "land" for you.

Also, Gregory Wilson is a super teacher, effective and engaging — and somehow so very encouraging. He's infectious in his enthusiasm.

The video is just under 22 minutes, but the last 10-12 minutes or so is (sorry to say) filler — in my opinion, at least. Gregory Wilson & David Gripenwaldt discuss their inspiration for this effect, and the ways they brainstorm to get an effect to have multiple stages. You might find this discussion interesting, or (like me) not so much. Where do ideas come from? How are they developed? I know this is a worthy discussion, but it is only just narrowly touched upon here, and doesn't really add anything to the performance or the method.

Also: it seems Gregory Wilson has a microphone and David Gripenwaldt does not. I watched this with my headphones, and still he was challenging to hear. In the end, however, I must say I don't think David Gripenwaldt's comments have very much to do add; he's a bit superfluous.

This effect does involve a little bit of pre-performance setup. Not much, and not at all difficult to do. (You need to be able to draw on a Starbucks sleeve, just like in the trailer. And you can choose another company, so long as you do the pre-performance work.) The setup means you can go with a pirate image if you like, or anything else you can dream up.

One thing I found missing in this video was the get-ready. There's a move you must do, not included in the trailer video. (To that point, in the video — it is interesting that David Gripenwaldt and Gregory Wilson explain this move is not at all noticeable, and yet they've edited it out of the trailer. See? Not a magician fooler, as you would probably notice it. But yes, I think most laymen will not ever see this move.)

This particular move means the effect might be a bit angle sensitive, but every venue is going to be slightly different, depending on how chairs are arranged. And depending on how careful you are with the get-ready...and the move. I would have appreciated some discussion of how to get yourself in the right position to do the move. Sure, I can work it out myself, and so can you, probably. But it seems they should have touched upon it a bit.

Hint: "depending on how the chairs are arranged" means you must perform this sitting down. I think this should be mentioned. Can it be performed standing up? I'll bet it can be... but if so, this isn't explored in the video at all.

Lastly, I'll say that this effect does NOT involve sleeving or anything related to that. Not sure what the effect's title is supposed to mean, but this can be performed in any outfit — sleeves rolled up is just fine.

If you like this effect, for $6 you won't be disappointed. Still, there could have been a few more details added to the video — namely: the get-ready and a non-sitting performance.
