This dvd is action packed and thrilling. However if you are a beginer I would have to advise against
this since most of the tricks and routines require a decent knowledge of card handling. But one more
time Greg has done it again with some killer card routines. Two Words... GET IT!!!

Ok, i personally didn't really like the DVD that much, one reason being that i didn't have a double
faced blank deck so I could not even perform the first effect on the DVD, then the second effect
also had a great part in which you needed a gaff card box that is not even taught how to be made...
What I did get out of this DVD was Greg's audience interaction, it taught me how to react
with the audience and stuff like that, the tricks required alot of setup and wern't that amazing if
you ask me.

This is challenging material but well worth the time. The things I took away from this DVD is
Wilson's version of the Butterfly Cut, his spectator cut to the aces and I did his Lethal Fours for
a while (it's a hard trick to remember!) Great teaching and, as always, Wilson is very

Pyrotechnic pasteboards has some good effects on it and Wilson teaches you some valuable sleights
like the elmsley count. However, I found some of the effects to be a bit bland and requiring a set
up (flash back in particular). Something very good on this dvd is the fact that it shows you Greg
performing in a show and this sets a great example for budding magicians who haven't seen
performances before. If you want to add some good card magic to your repetoire then get this dvd. If
you are already very into cards, however, then this dosen't provide very much extra.

Using a blank deck and one signed card for Ambitious Card is a great idea that Wilson came up with
here. Involving a spectator in a Four Aces is also great. Most of the routines are multi-phase and
the phases are usually independent. You can remove phases that are too hard, and you can also use a
lot of the moves in your own routines.
Wilson is an energetic and fun teacher who goes
through the moves accurately and informatively -- but also quickly. You'll have to watch the
tutorials a few times to learn the moves. With boomerang card, you're pretty much on your own. Also,
you won't be able to make a pack suddenly appear around your deck like Wilson does.

This is the best card magic I have ever seen, bar none! A couple of the moves are a bit "nacky" but
the results are incredible. You will level your spectators with the effects you can pull off. I
don't personally like Greg's performance style, but he does it very, very well. He teaches
everything and it is very valuable. He teaches his "back stage pass" and the pass is so invisible,
I had to re-watch it in slow motion several times just to see what he was doing, during the
explanation! After you get it down, you will use it ALL THE TIME! This is great material...don't
pass it up!

This was a great DVD. Gregory was very precise in his explanation he even took time later in the
DVD to go over the handling of the more difficult moves making it easy to learn. Jammed packed with
really knock-out routines. Will use mostly everything taught on this DVD. Good work here Gregory.
happy to hear you are getting this. you know what an excellent teacher but this routine is my
favorite and extensive.
I love Gregory Wilson. This is a top notch card routune. Trust me this is worth the money.
...except the sound on the performance scenes were muffled.
Fortunately, the sound on the
training scenes was good.
Greg's training is fast-and-furious, so you literally need to
his training bits a few times to catch the whole sequence. This guy slows
Greg teaches full routines, so if you practice/rehearse the full routine, you
literally have a full-show.
