I'm a fan of Jamie's effects - hence the purchase. However, whilst the method is not overly complicated the tutorial managed to make it appear much more difficult. Not what I could call a professional tutorial and certainly not as slick as the promo. A particular query I have is... What possible explanation can be given for the magician to scoop and plop (!!) some of the cards after maybe 2, 3, or 4 of the spectators cards being put down? That is not a natural move in the midst of the effect. When I tried this out the spectator immediately asked, Why have you done that? I will persevere, but have to say slightly disappointed.
It feels like we've waited a long time for the latest - and fourth - entry into the Dark Series. But it's worth the wait. The props are the usual high quality we've all come to expect from a Jamie Daws effect. The tutorial begins with a warning that it might take a while to get your head around the method, but personally speaking, I found the tutorial easy to follow (and even to chant along with! Scoops, plops and all!). Pay attention the tutorial and it should, in my humble (and I'm speaking as a hobbyist, not a performing professional) opinion, it should be fairly easy to pick up the principle and be able to perform. Pretty much every outcome is covered in the thorough tutorial. A welcome - and worthy - addition to the outstanding Dark Series.Write Review
