I am just getting back into card tricks after 3 years out with a hand problem (hopefully touch wood the issue is cured), and WOW!, This is like the New Testament of the Royal Road to Card Magic DVD i have with Paul Wilson which is now the Old Testament. These are my Bible ' Old Vs New '. The Material is quick, snappy and to the point, brief explanation of the the sleights and encourages you to further more info on each move. Luckily for me I have purchased downloads from Ellusionist as well as UK based sites a few years ago, so this was just refreshing. Love it!


I bought this DVD about a year ago now, and came across it again while browsing on E, and thought I'd put a quick review on it. Just to assure you, this is a very good beginner training DVD. I found Adam and Peter explained everything really well, and if your a beginner ready for a good start in card magic buy this DVD and you will love it.


Clearly learnt me all of the basics and good card tricks. All you can expecte as a new magician is here even a bit of cardistry. the only cons i can find is one trick over all the 3 hours of video is not as clear as the other.


A great heap of information to get you started or to hone your basic skills as a magician. Must get! The only reason why this is not 5 stars is due to the simple fact that 'to teach' requires more effort and I felt like the 'passion to teach' was not 100% felt throughout this project.


Good product for new card magician. They give you a basic overview of many card sleight. It is a very fluid serie of many moves but, they do not go in depth on any of them, so sometimes, to improve your move, you got to go find info somewhere else. It would also be easier to see how to do the move with multiple camera angles instead of just the front one. Overall, pretty good intro to card sleights. Best part of the DVD is the live performances at the end.


This was a great product, and I, as a beginner, benefited tons from this DVD. The product doesn't mention a 6th routine, the Backup Plan, and I think it was great when I found I had a 6th. But they are definitely right when they say this is just a beginner's guide, as they only touch on some sleights when they could have gone into more detail. However, they did explain the entire move, leaving me to practice to my heart's content. And my heart is very contented with this DVD. It's chock full of everything you will need to get started in magic.


really good instruction. I find that Peter McKinnon is a better instructor than Adam Wilber. I was a little disappointed that Adam's Backup Plan routine was hard to follow on phase 2.


Absolutely fantastic video. Getting back into card magic after 20 years and this has been a great help. Every thing has been explained very well. My only suggestion would be to pick up a deck to go along with it. I started just using a deck of Ryder Backs from a local store and some of the techniques were difficult to get the feel for. I switched to the Fathom deck and they became easier for learning and getting the hang of deck manipulation.


This is a unique opportunity to learn from the experts. Get this DVD, you will not be disappointed. I'm more than happy with the money spent on this 2 DVD set.

Stop spending time searching for free internet "tutorials" that only teach you bad habits. With this purchase you can disconnect from the internet and use the time practicing and learning from professionals.

Adam and Peter have a complementary style of teaching compared to Brad. They teach you fundamentals, encourage you to make the routines your own and further prompt you to research more professional material.

This purchase has given me at least 18 months of material to learn, practice, perfect and perform. A big thanks to Adam and Peter!


I am new to card magic. With that in mind, this is an amazing video. The progression of techniques and the manner of instruction combine for a program that is direct and user friendly. I've been through the first disc half a dozen times, and have already seen progress by practicing the techniques. Excellent job, and thanks for the recommendation.
