This is very good. You guys will like working with this deck, and the bits that you will need to purchase are available from cards4magic here in the UK.

The deck is perfectly examinable, as I have used this deck lots of times already on specs.

This deck really does have alot of potential and some great effects are available in the forum once the effect has been purchased.

Thanks for that Pegasus. It wasnn't really a review though was it?

Perhaps you could tell us a little more about it, what sort of effects you do with it. How much it is, how difficult it is etc.

In fact a good place to start would be to check out the review template...

Appreciate what you are saying but I thought I would provide the link to the website to make your own mind up.

To be honest with you I dont see myself in a position to write a review at my level of magic knowledge, however, I really do rate this deck. There are so many possibilities. I hope you can check out the demo vids.

You really can shuffle this deck as many times as you like, and you will always be able to determine the card that has been chosen, even though you are facing the other way.

I disagree with the comment as I'm sure others will.

What we are interested in is seeing beyond the marketing hype that's often published on web sites. Having a review, irrespective of the level of skill that the reviewer holds is still useful.

You are in a position to judge how hard the deck, or trick is to use and to perform with. You can judge if the sales patter is misleading, whether the instructions are well written etc.

You can also tell us what you like about the deck and why. How versitile is the deck in reality?

Whay not give this some thought and then post a review?

Similarly, I do think that your review would be really useful. The fact that you say you're not experienced enables you to give your perspective. If it's something that you find you can get great results from and you don't feel you have top-class skills (I'm sure you do and you are just being modest) then that's the sort of thing that I personnaly think is important.

Just my opinion - I'm no Paul Daniels (praise the lord), so I don't want to attempt tricks that are beyond my ability as I just end up feeling frustrated and foolish.

Magic Bill, you're in the wrong profession. You are a natural Comedian.

Looks a hell of a lot like the RaMa deck to me - if it is not, in fact, exactly the same thing.

Is it the same?

If you can perform "Picture this" with the rama deck then yes it is and I am a rip off...If you can't then its not.
Hope that helps.

I could perform both of the effects shown on the site with the rama.

But I'm guessing it isn't the same, yeah? If you're not sure then you should get a rama deck as the same kind of tricks can be performed with it.

I'm not fishing for clues here, I'm just trying to establish that it is a different thing, for those that may alraedy have the RaMa. If anyone has both, then how do they compare?

Mahoney,
Let me tell you a little story about the Titanic Deck.
The Titanic Deck is an old and long story, I create this effect long time ago...long before the rama deck been published.
I sent this effect to many vendors which all of them like it a lot but for some reason noone made the big step to publish it and all they gave me was a huge delay.
One of the last vendors (just before I decide to publish it my self) was Peter Nardi, Peter told me that he likes my deck and after a week or something he informed me that there was an upcoming new effect which shares same mechanics as my deck.
Its different to say that something shares same mechanics, especially when this deck has been created a long-long time before the one you mentioned, and different to say that its the same effect.
As far as I know with the deck you mentioned you can't perform "picture this" as the spectator has to cut before he removes his card which is not the case with my deck. In my case the spectator can remove his card from anywhere in the deck.
I will tell you what I give for this "huge" amount of money.
I give the Titanic Deck booklet 38 pages.
A brand new bonus routine "Resist"
and a forum that all the legitime TD owners can share ideas.
All the best,
Titanas
