Tthe DVD is ok. A couple tricks require set up, most of the tricks don't require to much set up. I
don't like the stuff here because a lot of the material is not that good for walk around. Or you
have to bring stuff with you like the matches, silly putty, the set up rope, I like the matches and
the bill switches and that is about it. The DVD in my opionion was ok, but I wish I didn't get it.
Not so good for walk around. A lot requires some sort of set up or gimics. I'm not saying you should
not get it, but it just wansn't for me.

It's great to add some hard hitting, no card, insanely easy to do tricks to your repitoire. No-Card
Tricks does just that. The only effect that I don't like is In Vitro, I just dislike the idea of
using silly putty. However every other effect on this DVD is completely usable. Quest for fire is
simply a brilliant effect. P.O.S.H. , although looking far too simple, I have done spur of the
moment countless times and it just blows people away. The DVD is almost worth buying solely for the
bill switch taught and the rountines you can apply with the technique. The match routines are also
simply brilliant. If you want a pleasant change from the routines and motions of card tricks,
definetly pick this up for the price.

I didn't care too much for any of the effects on this DVD. I was hoping to get some new material
working with matches, but I feel the tricks presented here were not particularly strong. The rope
trick and bill vanishes were ok. I also found Jay to be mildy insufferable on this one. I disagree
with his continuous claims that these are commercial effects. Moreover, he kept doing weird voices
and acting strange which was off-putting as you try to make your way through the DVD.
i have a few of mr sankeys products which are great however
this dvd is not one of them there
are a couple of effects that i will use like quest for fire which i have performed
and got good
reactions but other than that i feel theres just filler on this dvd which in my opinion is just not
practical (for me anyway)
This is a fantastic DVD! Jay Sankey's creativity really shows through. In classic Sankey style he
has some creative ideas for some classic tricks like the $100 dollar bill switch. this version
is what i have been using for years. I also love his tricks with wooden matches. I love being able
to perform miracles with normal items and the wooden match tricks are brilliant. I gave this a 4
because the trick with the matchbooks that come with the dvd is, in my opinion, worthless and you
can perform more amazing versions with coins. Otherwise, the material here is killer stuff.
If you are looking for a DVD that will get you started with more great Sankey Material, then you've
got the right one in this one. Jay is known for some difficult to master routines that take a lot
of practice, but this one here will have you working your way into some of his more complex routines
I was quite surprised, in the past, I've had issues getting his handlings down
pat, but this DVD definately helped me get more basics down. The routines here are simple, and can
be mastered quite quickly with some practice... If you are looking for stepping stone to get
yourself up to some of Jay's more complex routines, then BUY THIS DVD!
This DVD has many great effects with common everyday objects. This is one of my favorite Jay Sankey
Jay Sankey is one of the most innovative Magicians living and he is also a nice
person. I would suggest that you purchase every Jay Sankey book, DVD or trick that you can find and
get your hands on, because Jay Sankeys effects are easy to perform, and he uses everyday objects
for his magic.
By reading Jay Sankeys books, watching his DVDs, or performing his tricks,
you will learn all your basic magic techniques, simply and quickly. Jay Sankey is a great teacher
and he will teach you the practical handling, technique and magic theory needed to perform every
Some people may not like his type or style of humor but I personally think that he
is hilarious. Jays comedy will make your learning fun and he will keep you interested and laughing.
Really great DVD! My heart goes out to Jay Sankey. He's just inspired me to put down my cards and do
some of this kick ass material. Quest for Fire really is a good one - one of the best tricks on this
DVD! Plus, I use it all the time for my corporate shows. This is how powerful this trick is, and I'm
not lying either. I showed it to this guy and he said i'll give you 200 bucks if you show my friend.
I showed his friend and blew him away, and i gaciously accepted the 200 bucks. GET IT NOW!!!!!!!
As a starting magician I think Jay is a great teacher. It's all very clear. Sankey is a great
performer and I did great tricks after spending an hour watching and training. (But I am out of a
job at the moment, so I have the time;-))
Also bought Revelutionary Coin Magic. Again GREAT
Uhh its getting hot in here!
I love this dvd and of course sankey is so damn funny.
Hypnovanish RULES. Yes it is a bit tough to perform and some of the handlings I can't perform
cause I am only 13. And my hands are pretty small :) so the gimme five I can't perform but still
LOVE SANKEY LOVE LOVE LOVE SANKEY
Buy it if you want something else than card tricks
