The Confessions series is the follow up to Daniel Madison's previous work "HELLIONS" that he collaborated with Oban Jones.

The word "saint" is derived from a Greek verb (hagiazo [aJgiavzw]) whose basic meaning is "to set apart, " "sanctify, " or "make holy." In the history of the Old Testament religion, the idea of holiness or separateness was inherent in the concept of God. God was unapproachable in the tabernacle or temple by the ordinary individual, being accessible only to the priests and only under carefully specified conditions.

Paul addresses the letter to all the Christians in Rome as saints ( Rom 1:7 , because Gentiles who, as wild olive branches have been grafted into the stem of Judaism, now share in the full relationship to that plant and are also saints ), but the Jewish Christians in Rome, who are to be recipients of a special contribution Paul collected among Gentile churches, are called "the saints" in distinction ( Rom 15:25-33 ).

The Confessions series is the follow up to Daniel Madison's previous work "HELLIONS" that he collaborated with Oban Jones.

A martyr is one who bears witness of the truth, and suffers death in the cause of Christ ( Acts 22:20 ; Revelation 2:13 ; 17:6 ). In this sense Stephen was the first martyr. The Greek word so rendered in all other cases is translated "witness."

In a court of justice ( Matthew 18:16 ; 26:65 ; Acts 6:13 ; 7:58 ; Hebrews 10:28 ; 1 Timothy 5:19 ).
As of one bearing testimony to the truth of what he has seen or known ( Luke 24:48 ; Acts 1:8 Acts 1:22 ; Romans 1:9 ; 1 Thessalonians 2:5 1 Thessalonians 2:10 ; 1 John 1:2 ).

Confession [N]
(1) An open profession of faith ( Luke 12:8 ).

An acknowledgment of sins to God ( Leviticus 16:21 ; Ezra 9:5-15 ; Daniel 9:3-12 ), and to a neighbor whom we have wronged ( James 5:16 ; Matthew 18:15 ).

Now - FULLY MARKED!

By popular demand comes this new edition of Ellusionist’s sold-out Knights deck!

The subtlest and most complex piece on the chessboard, the knight has fascinated players with its leaps and sidesteps since the game was first created. Now designers Daniel Madison and Chris Ramsay and artist Oban Jones have sought to capture the piece’s essence in this exquisite deck printed by the United States Playing Card Company.
The cards are printed with metallic gold ink and a red foil back, bringing Jones’ work to elegant life. The custom joker commemorates the drama of a checkmate, a crow already moving in on the king’s fallen “body.” The tuck box is a classic matte with red and gold foil.

A must-have for chess lovers and card lovers alike!

Vivid and colorful playing cards—perfect for the modern day cardist. Tessellatus features a mosaic-themed back design, paired with a vivid and vibrant color palette. The faces feature a similar mosaic theme, with fully custom pips and court cards.  The main focus behind this design is to accentuate every flourish, such as fans, spins, and etc. This design allows you to reach full potential when flourishing, achieving new heights while flourishing with the vivid colors.     

For the back design, you have a full-bleed, borderless style. Making it borderless allows the design to visually enlarge, while also making each card merge seamlessly together, establishing new forms. The borderless back design is combined with vivid colors that harmoniously blend together when in motion to create excitement when flourishing. The Tessellatus playing cards are also a Two-Way fanning deck, meaning that there's multiple ways to display a fan with these cards.

Magical Cardistry Bonanza / Magic Review: Quantum Leap by Gavin James
« on: September 26, 2017, 08:09:37 AM »
​Title: Quantum Leap
Creator: Gavin James
Produced by: Saturn Magic
MSRP: $ 28
Skill Level: All
Video Run time: 33 minutes / bonus handling 3 minutes

Type of effect:  Card to impossible location / cards across

Manufacturer's Write Up: The impossible location is a classic in magic - Gavin James has now taken this plot and constructed a deck that allows you to perform the impossible.

You show a deck of 52 cards and hand half the deck to the spectator. They choose a card from your half and it instantly disappears, reappearing in their half of the deck at a specific number!

As an alternative, the card can appear in any impossible location you wish - in an orange, on a window, in your pocket, in the card box - in fact, anywhere you choose.

Best of all, the effect can be instantly repeated with a different card and the spectator can change their mind if they wish and select a different card!
 
How accurate is the ad copy? This is what happens.
 
What's in the box?  Download code and gimmicked cards

Key points:
 
It's an easy-to-learn routine
No memory work required -- the deck gives you all the information you need
Self-working, easy options for the total beginner. Requires no special card-handling skills
Instantly repeatable
Available in red or blue Bicycle backs versions
Gimmicks included printed on USPCC stock - use with your own red or blue Bicycle deck
Additional effects with the same deck shown -- it's not just a one-trick deck
No Rough and smooth
No sticky stuff!
No palming
 
How are the production values: Filmed well, good sound, no annoying background music
 
Is it well made: standard Bicycle cards

Is it well taught: Taught with multiple options for forcing the card.  The cards across routine is very simple and is taught within the first potion of the video. The “card to window” effect (that is seen in the trailer) is actually part of a “multiple out” – but can be done as the actual effect if you are particular about the card you force.
 
Several other trick ideas are offered with permission including:
 
21 Again by Gary Jones
Biddle Trick
2 Card Monte
Dr Dailey
 
My thoughts this a great improvement upon an “old classic” that I think is way more deceptive and puts the trick into a cool context.
 
Storage? Does it "pack flat?"  These cards will fit seamlessly into your standard deck
 
Does it "play big?" Card to impossible location is always a favorite with audiences.
 
Difficulty / Skill level required:  The instructions teach possibilities at all skill levels.
 
How much arts and crafts are involved? There are a few modifications to make
 
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) Yes this is real world possible
 
Overall score: let's toss out the traditional score of 1-10 and make this something that we all can appreciate and understand.

Title: The Ace Hut   
Creator: Landon Swank
Publisher: Hydra Entertainment
MSRP: $ 25
Skill Level: Intermediate
DVD Run time: 1 hour 36 minutes

Type of effect:  Sam the Bellhop style routine

Manufacturer's Write Up: International stage Illusionist, Landon Swank, created The Ace Hut over fifteen years ago. He has performed it on 5 continents and in over 40 countries! This unique take on a full deck story offers options for beginners, intermediates, and professionals alike.

In collaboration with renowned musician, Toby-Joe Reilly, Swank's original poem was transformed into a Soulful, Bluesy cover. This unique feature allows options for the performer to either recite the poem, or simply press the play button and focus entirely on the manipulation. It enables the routine to be performed soon after watching the video!

For an in-depth breakdown of shuffles and deals that can take The Ace Hut to the next level, check out "The Real Deal" instruction video.

How accurate is the ad copy? Spot on
 
What's in the box?  DVD only and jacket has the deck stack printed. You also receive a link to the music used in the performance.

How are the production values: One steady cam, Landon performs against a white backdrop with a blue table. Nice clear mic – no background music.

Is it well taught: Landon teaches you two deck stacks – one for a more technical flourish version and one for a straight forward version.
 
Storage? Does it "pack flat?"  DVD only, no gimmicked cards are needed.
 
Difficulty / Skill level required:  Performer must be adept at a variety of false shuffles and cuts.
 
How much arts and crafts are involved? none
 
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) Yes, but you will need a table.
 
Overall score: let's toss out the traditional score of 1-10 and make this something that we all can appreciate and understand.

« on: September 20, 2017, 08:23:31 AM »
video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IlM9YuRBjs

Bharata takes inspiration from traditional Indian folk art forms, Kishangarh paintings & miniature paintings as the central theme while the characters are imagined as part of the Indian royalty.

Bharata is India's original name, and the whole deck is an ode to the stories of Kings & Queens

This is a fully custom illustrated playing card deck with Gold Gilded edges for a brilliant and shiny "real gold" look

Magical Cardistry Bonanza / Magic Review: AMAZINK by Sebastien Calbry
« on: September 19, 2017, 04:11:02 PM »
Title: Amazink
Creator: Sebastien Calbry
MSRP: $ 35
Skill Level: all
Video run time: 26 minutes

Type of effect:  Flash reveal

Manufacturer's Write Up: The Gimmick for multiple effects!!!
Be creative!

With Amazink, you will have the possibility to make any writing appear and disappear on the back of a card, inserted into a badge holder, simply by waving it!
You will also be able to make revelations and changes (characters, shapes, etc.) based on your own inspiration, as the gimmick is fully customizable.
Finally, you will have the option to create a small token from your badge holder (coin, folded card, etc.) as seen in the video.

Sebastien Calbry creates an actual creative tool with this gimmick, and offers multiple possibilities.

It is possible, using a badge holder, to turn it into an extra support by drawing on it to then combine original effects.

FLASH AND VISUAL, QUICK START, READY TO USE, CUSTOMIZABLE , IMMEDIATE RESET
 
What's in the box?  Badge holder with its lanyard, Trick card, Gimmicks, Business card with link to instructional video

How are the production values: Shot well against a white back drop, no microphone so it is a little echo-y.
 
Is it well made: It is well made, this is a sturdy prop

Is it well taught: The video is shot in French with English subtitles.  The subtitles for me were hard to read, the text dances around the screen from top to bottom and also changes color from black to white to red.
 
Storage? Does it "pack flat?"  It is what it looks like, no extras
 
Does it "play big?" this is a nice reveal that can get a good reaction when paired with the right effect
 
Difficulty / Skill level required:  All skill levels
 
How much arts and crafts are involved? You will need to “draw” or “write” your own predictions
 
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) Very real world possible
 
Overall score: let's toss out the traditional score of 1-10 and make this something that we all can appreciate and understand.

My thoughts Ultimately this feels like his last two effects Offset and Badge came together and had a baby, even at the beginning of the video he admits that this is technically “offset 2” – also I don’t see that wearing a lanyard like that looks “normal” it almost screams “gimmick” unless you were wearing it at a convention where EVERYONE was wearing a lanyard.

Introduction

Kameleon Cards is one of many designs and the first to come to life by Cardistry Collective. Cardistry Collective was founded because of a deep love for playing with paper (Playing Cards), and an amazing community of people. The Kameleon deck is the first, inspired by one of their favorite reptiles more specifically the Ambilobe Chameleon from Madagascar. Their unique yellow and green colors really stand out in the world of playing cards but in the trees of Madagascar these animals are very hard to spot.

Design

The Kameleon Playing Cards are a two way back design with a unique bright yellow, and neon green pattern. The bright yellow center, and neon green corners help this deck stand out while doing flourishes and fans.

THE DESIGN

The OCULUS Deck is inspired by Pointillism. It features a full-bleed borderless design with bold and vibrant Reds and Blues. The Court Cards each have a radial design structure that gives them an abstract, yet familiar, look to them. The design is also meant to flow through flourishes and allow for continuous displays that aren't possible with borders. In addition to allowing for table displays as well.

FACE CARDS

The faces are semi-custom with a carryover of the back design. The design comes from the center and works its way to the edges. The designers chose to leave the pips larger and easy to read allowing playability of the cards....for those times that people want to see us do more than just "shuffle". Making this a deck that can become part of your every day carry, as you can practice cardistry, magic and stealing money from your friends in a game of poker. The Ace continues the design and incorporates the Joker design.

Go and back this on kickstarter right now: https://www.tinyurl.com/oculuscards

Magical Cardistry Bonanza / Magic Review: The Gift by Angelo Carbone
« on: September 14, 2017, 06:50:35 PM »
Title: The Gift
Creator: Angelo Carbone
Publisher: Murphys Magic
MSRP: $ 75
Skill Level: All
Video one: 7 mins, main video 39 minutes, bonus idea 3 minutes

Type of effect:  Prediction prop (multiple out utility)

Manufacturer's Write Up: Rarely does a secret get published that ticks all the boxes (no pun intended).  A unique concept from master creator Angelo Carbone, The Gift is an effect with a method so clever that you'll feel a giddy urge to reveal the method to your spectators. We don't suggest that you actually do this.

The spectator deals the cards face up and stops wherever they want. They open the gift box themselves and remove the prediction inside. The prediction will ALWAYS be correct!

Bonus routine included where your prediction is torn in half, and half of it is in view the ENTIRE time before a card is selected. The other half is inside the box and, of course, both torn halves match perfectly!

The spectator and the box do the hard work, but you come out the winner.

Available in Standard and in Limited Edition Gold

Give your spectators "The Gift" of an impossible moment!

How accurate is the ad copy?
 
What's in the box? 
 
- The Gift Box
- Deck of Cards
- 40 min instruction video with Angelo Carbone
- The ability to perform a miracle

Key points: The Gift is a self-contained, precision-crafted device that makes the effect easy to perform. It doesn't use any indexes or loads, and resets in seconds. Open the box, set up the device, and you'll be performing within minutes.
 
How are the production values: Murphy’s magic makes great videos – everything is well shot, well mic’d beautiful transitions. Artistically shot, with multiple settings al with perfectly clear and easy to follow instruction.
 
Is it well made: The gift is a beautiful and professionally made prop that does not look like a “magic prop” at all – it actually looks like a gift box, or a decoration box you’d find at a craft store.

Is it well taught: Of course you will learn the initial effect and everything else you need to learn and prepare for to perform the trick in the advertisement. Angelo will also share several other ideas.
 
Storage? Does it "pack flat?"  No. This is a 3 x 3 inch cube
 
Does it "play big?" Predicting the future from a seemingly free choice? Yea, this will get great reactions.
 
Difficulty / Skill level required:  Not difficult
 
How much arts and crafts are involved? None
 
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) Absolutely.
 
Overall score: let's toss out the traditional score of 1-10 and make this something that we all can appreciate and understand.

 Title: iCaan
Creator: James Went
Publisher: Big Blind Media
MSRP: $ 22
Skill Level: Beginner
Vido run time: 20 minutes

Type of effect:  Any Card to any number

Manufacturer's Write Up:
 
A deck of cards is genuinely shuffled by both the performer and a spectator, who then each select a card. These cards are lost back into the deck which is, again, shuffled.

The magician announces that despite all the shuffling he is convinced that the spectator's card is 'fourteenth' down from the top. With a flourish he reveals the fourteenth card - it IS the spectator's selection.

So far so good. But here is where iCaan moves into miracle territory. The magician names their selection (let's say 'Three Of Clubs') and asks the spectator to guess at which numbered position this card lies in the deck.

Whatever their answer, the spectator is told to take the deck and deal down to that number. The magician DOES NOT touch the deck. Impossibly the magician's 'Four Of Clubs' is found at the exact number named by the spectator!
 
James Went's spectacular routine has been an underground smash - utterly devastating magicians at conventions around the world. If well-read, professional magicians can be fried with iCaan, just imagine what it looks like to a 'muggle'!

How accurate is the ad copy? No deception
 
What's in the box?  Gimmicked deck of cards and the download code

Key points:
 
The spectator can name ANY number and iCaan will work
No memory work required
Includes three versions: James ultra clean original routine, An easier (almost self-working) handling, and Liam Montier's special super-easy alternative
 
How are the production values: Much like most BBM videos, same studio location (James is even wearing the same clothes he’s worn in Meditations and uses the same spectator) Shot well, mic’d well, good transitions.
 
Is it well made: The gimmick is very well made and there is a good chance you already own it.

Is it well taught: The plot is pretty simple, and requires virtually no sleights So between James and Liam Montier they offer you 3 solutions and everything is covered.
 
Storage? Does it "pack flat?"  Only a deck of cards is used.
 
Does it "play big?" the any card to any number plot is always a crowd pleaser.
 
Difficulty / Skill level required:  James has a few “fancy parts” in his presentation that are more for the skilled cardiciain, but Liam comes in at the end and offers a more simplified solution.
 
How much arts and crafts are involved? zero
 
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) yes
 
Overall score: let's toss out the traditional score of 1-10 and make this something that we all can appreciate and understand.

Butterfly. It's next custom deck in their new range of quality playing cards.

This deck has been custom designed from the ground up and made for us by The United States Playing Card Company on their famous Bicycle Card Stock. With Air Cushioned finish, they are simply beautiful to use and perfect for all magicians and collectors.

Each custom designed deck comes with 56 cards and includes two jokers (one with a hidden prediction printed on it's face), a double backer and one blank facer, allowing magicians to incorporate this deck into their usual routines.

This deck handles as good as it looks and will be something you'll be proud to use time and time again.

Elegant playing cards depicting the Capitalists who acquired wealth by ruthless means and the women who fought for their rights by Jody Eklund

The kings and jacks depict those that build empires through ruthless means and the queens are women that spent their life's energy to liberate those oppressed in many ways. It's a story of juxtaposition; misuse of power and strength from weakness, oppression and liberation...  This is Titans, these are the Robber Barons.
