Be Infamous

Posted by Editor on April 17th, 2014

Plant a seemingly random word in your spectators minds… Then reveal exactly how you did it! This is INFAMOUS!

Infamous is a book test like no other.
Where other book tests end, you’re only just getting started!
Infamous is a routine with a kicker climax that brings things full circle.

What is the difference between the Standard and Deluxe packages?
Both packages contain the DVD and special cards that allow you to perform the core routine as seen in the trailer. With the Standard package you will need to supply your own book (almost any book will work), and you will need to create your own gimmick (instruction is included on the DVD to guide you through this). The Deluxe package contains a book and a gimmick. After assembly you will be ready to go in about 5 minutes. The book contained in the Deluxe package has been specially prepared to allow you to perform a number of bonus effects that will not be possible without it.

I am terrible at arts and crafts. Will I have trouble assembling the gimmicks?
I doubt it! It is extremely simple and uses standard items you are likely to have lying around the house.

How examinable is the Deluxe package’s book?
The book is extremely examinable. It contains over 300 pages of text from the real book and it has been specially modified so that you could read it cover to cover and not discover the secret. It contains a well-known principle in a new way to tie in with the Infamous premise.

Will there be an option so that purchasers of the Standard package can later upgrade to the Deluxe package?
While there is no immediate option for this, something might be made available in the future. However, the best deal will be to buy the Deluxe package at the outset.

Is this suitable for walk-around?
This was developed with the walk-around performer in mind. The book contained in the Deluxe package is the ideal size to be carried in a jacket pocket. While the effect will play out the same each time, the word selected by the participant can be varied each time.

“How much audiences love this trick will SHOCK YOU.”
http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/4193

I’m going to say something that will surprise you: When you make a rose out of a napkin, you don’t even NEED to do magic. It’s THAT much of a crowd pleaser. And before I actually did it, I didn’t believe it. I COULDN’T believe it.

So when you DO A TRICK with that rose, it’s like pouring FUEL ON A FIRE.

Chris Randall is world-famous for his napkin magic, and he’s finally teaching his reputation making routines. You’ll never look at a napkin the same way again.

“Magic is about connecting with people. And Chris Randall does it with nothing but NAPKINS.” -Maxwell Murphy

As a single magician working in Vegas, Chris spent years developing a bullet-proof set of tricks to have fun, amaze.. and even get a date!

CHRIS TEACHES YOU

1. How he rips and VISUALLY RESTORES a napkin-rose.

2. How he makes the perfect napkin rose (worth the price alone)

3. Special bonus for the single crowd: Chris teaches his now-famous “7 Digits” finale. A super visual trick that ends with a funny and clever phone-number swap.

PLUS: If you have flash-paper, you’ll be able to do Chris’s hyper-visual fire-ball restoration.

PROFESSIONALS: Using nothing but napkins, Chris has a blast everywhere he goes. Refined over thousands of performances, what you’re getting here is a rock-solid stunner.

Miss Jason England Live At The Table?
Don’t worry; it is now available for DOWNLOAD!

“I have the same thought when I see Jason do card magic as I do when I see a Ferrari drive by: Dang.. I gotta work harder. Beautiful stuff, can’t wait. I can never get enough examples of perfection!!” – Acar Altinsel

On April 2, we changed things up with our “At the Table” visit from Jason England. Mr. England is acclaimed the world over for two things: his classical approach to magic’s most enduring effects, and his ability to perfectly execute the most challenging cheating moves ever devised.

We worked closely with Jason on an “At the Table” experience that will showcase BOTH the classical magic he is known for, and the cheating techniques that make him the envy of card enthusiasts everywhere.

To top it off, Jason shared an unpublished ending for Twisting the Aces by his close friend Derek Delgaudio, as well as a gambling routine that has never been performed or released.

It was the MOST magic packed into the evening as possible, without letting it drone on. We hit over 2 hours with Jason covering an extensive roster of material.
