There are so many times, when I am playing cards that I wish I knew tricks, so that when I was dealing or shuffling, I could amaze my friends and family with what I could do, instead of the same old boring dealing, I figured I could make the down time of the game, that much more fun!
This set includes a deck of cards, a mat, and a 6 DVD set. You can learn 170 different card tricks from this set. Like all things, they include easy to learn and do tricks all the way up to hard to learn and do. My kids seem to pick them up a lot faster then I do and end up teaching me in real time. I found this is a great way to spend time as a family and to learn cool tricks!
One thing I feel like I need to mention, because most companies don't do this, is the fact that they hand wrote a thank you on my receipt. This is not something I am use to and it really made me understand that this company cares about it's customers and don't just see dollar signs. Sometimes, it is the little things that impress me and this really did!
Now back to the task at hand... I love how easy this was to open up. The mat has that brand new weird smell to it, so I had to sit it out for a few days so I could stand it. At least it's new right??? The cards are brand new so I had to work with them for a little bit to get them to the bendy quality that I like and of course so they are easier for me to move around in my hands.
The dvds are good quality and for most of the tricks, they were easy for me to understand and follow. Like I said there were a few that I didn't understand and the kids showed me, but most of them I picked up on my own from just watching the DVDs.
We have done tricks for more then a few guests and they all wondered if we learned them from a book or from youtube and when I show them the DVD case, they are surprised that you can actually buy something like this. A few have even asked to borrow the DVDs so they can learn as well!
This is such a fun set for those who enjoy playing cards and for those that just enjoy magic. Head on over to Amazon and check them out here. From there you can learn more about this set see what others are saying about it, and you can pick up a set for yourself!
