Title: Phantom Burn
Creator: Alan Rorrison
Publisher: Sans Minds
MSRP: $ 35
Skill Level: all
DVD Run time: 27 minutes

Fire has been used in rituals and performances for centuries. It is associated with having mystical properties, and with this new trick in your arsenal, you will be able to harness these magical properties to reveal secret messages!

Imagine a spectator selecting a card, losing it in the deck, and the magician doesn't even need to look through the deck to find it. Instead, the performer produces a receipt, eerily places a lighter underneath (far enough away so that the receipt does not catch fire), and the card's image mysteriously appears on the receipt. WOW!

From the mind that brought you Sharpie Through Bill and Praemovo, this is Star Artist Alan Rorrison's latest addition. Introducing Phantom Burn. A customizable illusion that allows you to reveal a message on a receipt using any lighter! This one is sure to impress your audience, and can be incorporated to fit into many routines for a more exciting reveal!

(Please exercise caution when performing this illusion.)

What's in the Box?

- 1 Phantom Burn Instructional DVD
- 1 Gimmick Package

Deck Reviews! / Video Review: COBRA from JP Games LTD
« Last post by Magic_Orthodoxy on February 14, 2018, 04:45:55 PM »

COBRA is illustrated by the supremely talented Rick Davidson and takes inspiration from some of our favourite decks - such as DMC's Elites and the industry changing Monarchs deck from theory11. Housed in a gorgeous soft touch burgundy 330gsm tuck box complete with gold foil COBRA logo and detailing. Traditional faces and numbers coupled with gold metallic inks on the courts and backs make COBRA a premium deck made to be used. Included in the deck for the magicians is a blank face card and a double backer.

Printed using Cartamundi's B9 Cardistry stock which has a lovely soft feel and finish, yet is very durable. With each release this stock continues to improve. Some previous decks that are printed using the same are Cardistry Touch and Butterfly Playing Cards.

Playing Card Plethora / Sockman's Original Playing Card Socks on KS
« Last post by Reylek on February 14, 2018, 12:50:09 PM »
Hey everyone.  Check out the latest KS campaign from Penguin.

The main pledge levels are for the sock accessories themselves.  The decks are stretch goals right now, but hopefully they'll be unlocked.

We've been playing with the prototype for awhile now and have some fun ideas for Card to Impossible Location type routines, etc.

While it looks simple, we actually went through several manufacturers and made several prototypes to make the sock look, feel, and fit perfectly on a standard poker deck.  We're not just buying socks off the shelf and cutting them down to size - this is a totally custom product.

In road testing the prototype with some performances, it definitely elicits chuckles and amused reactions to pull out a mini sock and take your deck out of it. The goal of this item is to be quirky, fun, and unusual.

We should have a video posted before long to explain more about the product.

We also do have custom decks designed that we've placed as stretch goals.  So if we hit those goals, anyone who digs the decks but not the socks will be able to snag those.

Introduce Yourself / Greetings from Germany

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this community but have been a card enthusiast for years and have been casually collecting decks - mostly those with transformative and semi-transformative designs and art decks.

Anyways, I've recently moved to Germany and was wondering if there are any friends that also share my hobby?
Deck Reviews! / Video Review: BURGER deck by Flaminko

The BURGERs were designed in Melbourne VIC, and are manufactured by Cartamundi. The Tuck box design sports a complete burger decal. Its bright colors and distinctive design make it a standout in any collection.  Each suit represents the vital ingredients of the classic burger (*disclaimer: it might be a cheeseburger).
