TOUCH,,,,,well, This gets a 3/5 out of the gimmicked decks I have recently received in the recent
months and in the past. I am a loyal, frequent PM customer and a friend of Nick, however I will
always be honest with my constructive criticism.
Everything is very well taught - the very
best from Nick as usual, many routines / different ways to perform the Touch deck although - the
reason I give it a 3 is because of how limited you are with this deck in your hands. It is really a
"One Trick" kind of deck & I was aware of that before purchasing, similar to ALPHA Deck but Alpha
you can actually do completely different tricks with the deck you receive of 7 different bonus
ideas, and anything you may come up with. Sure the TOUCH deck may give you ideas to create your own
tricks with this deck but I am stumped ! To me, *writing out a prediction* and then basically having
someone name a card and then you reveal it on the back of the joker - the trick is one of those
kinda things that even Nick says, "dont do this more than once / again" as people will catch on.
This is something that unfortunately will be going on the shelves. I think it is a fine,
brilliantly limited form of creativity in this deck - regardless, I don't like being so limited to
only ONE trick so fast with one deck having to deck switch. I wish they would have waited and
thought of ways to enhance Paul's original idea to make this have more to do with the deck. If i
come up with more ideas of how to make this play out longer or something that isn't so short and
then the deck needs to be cleaned up then I will be using this all the time. Until then, Thank you
Penguin and Nick for this special release, one of a kind deck for sure but just make sure before you
buy this that you are willing to deck switch or be okay with using this for one trick. One trick
gimmicked decks typically don't last long in the trend/ making of the production of the decks, pick
up yours today before they are gone if you support PM and like Nick's teaching he covers all bases
does an excellent job with it all.

I saw Nick perform this effect at Magic Live in August, and it didn't blow me away at first. Right
after he performed it for me, he did it for another spectator while I was standing by. After seeing
it done a second time, I bought it immediately.
Touch is very easy to perform, and has
served me very well since I purchased it. It now has a special place in my kit, and I perform it all

The trick is cleverly done, but professionally speaking, the act is based mostly on gaff cards and
the final move is sneaky. I believe there are better ways to do similar effect without gaff cards.

The final move takes a bit if finesse, but well within the skill set of anyone. Positive reviews are
well deserved on this one. Get it!

I purchased this product at the Dallas, Texas Live Event on 10/15/2017. Nick Locapo demonstrated
the routine and then explained its workings. Comes with a red Rider Back Bicycle deck of cards and
a nice green box with a link to the explanation. Very nice - deck cannot be used with other card
tricks not associated with Touch.

Nick showed me this at Genii this year and as much as I didn't want to admit, it totally fooled me.
The download covers several variations on how to perform this effect, and as always Nick's teaching
is superb! What's great is once you perform the effect, it resets. So for the table hopping
magician, like myself, this will go straight into your set! Highly recommended

This trick is a very good one! It looks impressive and impossible. Sadly no intimate inspection is
allowed on the deck. So pros:
-great trick and presentation
hold the deck
-and you have to bring an extra deck around just for this trick

I admit that i do NOT have the deck yet but did go through the video.
I'm a 'seasoned' Magician
and have experienced a lot of magic in my 15 years of being semi-pro so let's go with that ok? ;)
First this is from Paul Curry. THAT should be a reason to buy.
Second, Nick does
a GREAT job explaining this.
He really does a fantastic job of showing you the handling and
performing with lots of goodies thrown in.
Clear video and audio (Good job av guys.) And
this is SO important when you make a purchase. Penguin has the best AV guys.
This is an
excellent routine. Easy and visual.
I'm familiar with "the move" and it's pretty easy so pros
and rookies alike will Love this.
This can so enhance my close up routines.
