Great series - but you will have to work for it Report this review

There is a lot going on in this series and for each effect, don't assume you will get it all at once because he doesn't just explain the trick.

He will explain a number of techniques (and sometimes a little theory) ranging from just understanding the "automatic" part of whatever the trick is, along with a number of methods ranging from how you can place a card at a specific position in the deck while it is seemingly shuffled by a number of spectators, to getting a peak using body language, to forcing spectators to chose what seems to be a random number, and more.

He presents all of the components separately then puts them back together at the end of the lesson so you can do the trick. The basic tricks he presents are simple and can be done if you start with a deck stacked the way you want. But Dani teaches a number of techniques to get the deck set up impromptu from a borrowed deck. Also, none of those individual techniques require complex slights. They are all quite easy.

The hard part is combining ALL of the techniques together so the method is hidden from the spectator. And Dani throws a lot at you in each lesson. So you definitely get your money's worth.

However, if you are the kind of person who just wants to buy a trick with a linear explanation, then this is not for you. If you want a trick along with some techniques and theories you can apply to lots of magic, then you will love this series. I for one think this is great and it is forcing me to explore a whole different kind of magic. THANK YOU DANI!

Powerful weapons Report this review

Dani takes you on a journey to create and modify tricks by giving you weapons. Not just a follow along a copy lecture. You can do that but Dani encourages you to play with the techniques and methods.

Being semi-automatic you have to do a little work, things aren't done for you. (Where would the fun be in that). The weapons and be combined to expand, extend and swap out parts of other tricks.

Thanks for opening my mind.
