News and Reviews: New Features, Royal Scam

Welcome to our first ever edition of MJM News and Reviews! This will be (hopefully) a weekly article we send out. It's designed to be an INTERACTIVE email, which means we want you to feel free to leave your feedback and comments to the topics we discuss! Keep reading and see what I mean!

NEWS:

This is where we are going to discuss latest items, upcoming things in the industry, or just changes to the site. Occasionally you will see us mention super secret DISCOUNTS or promotions that we won't publish on our website! That's right --- those who aren't subscribed to this newsletter, our blog, or our Twitter account will never know about some of the awesome deals that we offer here!

One of the latest things we did on the website is to add a TRANSLATOR feature on the upper left hand side of our page. We have new visitors coming daily to our website, and many don't speak English. So we have added this translator to the page for people who want to see our entire site in their native language.

Have you tried the translator yet? Is it helpful or a hindrance? Let us know by clicking THIS LINK and give us your thoughts on our message board: http://www.mjmmagic.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=20

(See what I mean by "interactive"? Hehe.)

Speaking of which, the MJM Magic Forums are now up and running again. These used to be one of the foundations of our website back in 2004, but we let them get overrun with too much spam and shut them down many years ago. Well now, we have a nice team of moderators, and we're looking forward to keeping the forums up and running again. It's going to start out slow, but soon you will find it to be a nice resource for asking questions, making friends & contacts in the industry, or just killing time during the day.

REVIEW: Royal Scam by John Bannon

I admit, I am a sucker for card magic. Especially packet tricks, which you can easily carry around with you. What I love about Royal Scam is that it has all the great things you'd expect in a hard hitting card trick, but takes up little space.

It also has not one, but THREE climaxes that really catch people off guard. Here's what happens. You show your audience a stack of red backed Ace of Spades. You explain that one of the things you love to do with cards is Magic, Misdirection, and Make Money! Demonstrating the "Magic", you show how the packet turns all face up, or all face down, depending on how you twist the ace. Trust me, this baffles them when they see it!

Then, you explain that while you were doing the "Magic", you were busy "Misdirecting" them. You show that without them even knowing, the backs of the cards have all changed colors. Instead of all being red, they have changed to many different colors! Watch the demo and you will see what I mean.

The final climax is where you show how you "Make Money", by flipping over the best gambling hand known to man, the ROYAL FLUSH!

Oh, and did I mention the best part? It costs you less than $15.00, and it comes with an instructional DVD to boot! Check it out here:
