Re: History of Edward Victor's Bat Trick

You could be right John.

Just to add that Ken Brooke used to dem 'I'll Start Again' brilliantly. Would we have expected anything less? ;)

Re: The quality of the bicycle standard deck.

Must admit that I was pretty excited when the USPCC re-released Aristocrat Banknote backs last year. However, I was pretty peeved when I realised that the red back had become a shade of maroon, and that the red pips are a lot darker - as with casino decks.

Re: Alan Alan

Couldn't just read this thread without adding a few comments. Alan Alan - wow what can you say about this man.......and his shop. First and foremost, as a magical demonstrator, I'd actually put him on par with Ken Brooke. I must have got on his good side pretty early on - as he was always polite and...
