It's easier to do this than mess trying to make it less.


.... and this is where I had problems - I followed the instructions to the letter .... less is def best. You can always add a lil' more if required, but it's a pain if you add too much.

Okay so I've just made my 2nd new gimmick (only broke the "stuff" once this time). In the DVD I'm sure it said there's enough replacement "stuff" for 12 gimmicks (I might be wrong though - I'll need to check this) ..... well I followed the instructions using exactly the right amount ..... so I've made 2 gimmicks and had 3 break - I've only got enough left for 1, poss 2 more.... what gives ????

Plus - I've re-positioned where you put it the "stuff", so it's even more invisible ..... PM me for more details - you'll need to prove you have this b4 I reveal anything to ya :wink:

I've just bought this second hand, so would appreciate someone dropping me a line with the details of where 'stuff' can be bought. I don't even know what the 'stuff' is yet since it's not arrived. I'm happy to offer any proof of ownership once my package gets here.

Have you had any luck pal ???

I looked into my envelope today as I was gonna go into town to a speciality shop (I'm not gonna say what kind of shop in case I tip what the "stuff" is) to see if they had anything remotely similar. I'm proper knackered now 'cos my "stuff" has disappeared, it's not where it should be :cry: ..... oh well - there wasn't alot left anyway :(
Well, I took one of the gimmicked cards and showed them what I was after. I got some ..... but as I expected, it's not up to the job, so my search continues :? .

This cant be up to much if its causing this much hassle so early on in its career.

Hey bud!

As per my PM, the 'stuff' is proving elusive.

Have tried three variations so far, with no luck.

Only 1 option left available (in the UK) that I can see -if that's not suitable, I'm gonna have to try various types from abroad - which could quickly get costly...! :(

The working of it is great. You're supplied with 2 red-backed gimmicks along with some "stuff" to make new gimmicks. Unfortunately I only use blue bikes so I had to make new gimmicks from the start ..... AND ..... I don't use/handle the "stuff", simply because I've never bothered with it. Some people will be quite at home with it and will prob never break it.
The gimmicks are quite sturdy and if handled correctly will give you lots of performances ..... it would be nice though to find a UK stockist .... especially as I've none left now and only 2 gimmicks to show for it.

Also, I have a slightly better placement for the "stuff", so really I only have 1 gimmick, 'cos the 1st one was made following the DVD exactly and the "stuff" is much less invisible on the 2nd one that I made (I hope that makes sense).

Good news, the extra handling notes are now with your dealer.

Follow the instructions and understand the principles in use and you will have something really special to amaze people with.

This will work 100% of the time.

If you take it from the box and do not understand what you have and it properties you will break it, its not indestructible!

The supplied gimmicks should last a very long time and you do get enough spare to make a good few more up should you be a bit rough with it.

The other item you get will last you for years so I can't understand why people are looking for it already?

This really is simple when you understand how it works and I think I'd even say its the best hands off haunted deck ever!

does the effect work with things different from playing cards? E.g. photographs or business cards..

There is a handling for business cards included on the DVD.

There is no reason why it would not work with anything as long as they are like a playing card in texture and weight.

'STUFF' NOW AVAILABLE - WITH ADDED BENEFITS!!

As you lucky owners of Haunted might know, I've been working hard on tracking down replacement 'Stuff' (of the non-orange 'Stuff' kind) and have not only succeeded, but found an alternative, which provides several extra benefits (not least being x10 durability over the original 'Stuff'!')

For those of you who OWN Haunted, please PM me your postal address, and I'll send you a sample gimmick with the improved 'Stuff', so you can try it out!

(please note, these gimmicks - of which I have only 6 for tester purposes - are free, but available only to those who have BOUGHT Haunted - when you PM me, please prove ownership by stating the brand name of the orange stuff you received with your purchase :wink: )

Whilst this thread seems to be dorminated by discussing where to get 'stuff' from to make replacement props please note that it comes with 2 ready to use items that should last you some time. I've found no need to make replacements.

I have been experimenting with Titanas' bonus effect and found that it is not really workable as it can lead to giving the game away. Has anyone else found this?
