Re: Announcement regarding new Steve Forte book

Mike Henkel is a Genii Forum member and is a very reputable and honest dealer. He sells a lot of stuff that's hard to find. On the bright side: by putting the books on e...

Re: Announcement regarding new Steve Forte book

The value of this book to the “magic” world considering Steve Forte is a gambling sleight of hand expert cannot be overstated.

I hope he reprints... he deserves to... I’ve asked for my copy signed. This is a book that will be forever in my collection.

I cannot wait.

If you have a Genii sub, head over to the archives and read The Erdnase Letters (from the 80s and 90s).

TG was not a fan, let's put it that way :)

Thanks Ian will have a look.

Re: Worthwhile Kickstarter Campaign for Great Chop Cup Set Done with Dice Cups and Dice

I think for me - a backer- it’s sad to see how this is working out. It has put me off prepayment and crowdfunding projects in the future. I wish Dave all the best.

Re: Worthwhile Kickstarter Campaign for Great Chop Cup Set Done with Dice Cups and Dice

Can anyone help me understand an update Mr Forrest gave on the 4th October? “All parts of Cubism Maestro are with us apart from one. The final component is the close up mat. “ I empathise with Mr Forrest if things have not gone to plan but an update that implies all the manufactured components are “...

Re: Wanted - Richard Turner's Bee Playing Cards

Those are the ones I have. The first one is no longer available, I think. Yes I have those too. I know Penguin have the Elite cards now which are a little softer than the Turner deck but are also traditional cut? I think the Bee’s are certainly better for dealing seconds because of the white border...

Re: Wanted - Richard Turner's Bee Playing Cards

He mentioned he was down to the last few hundred thousand decks and that would be the last printing? He wasn’t selling Bee backs at all as Quentin says. I wonder if he is holding the Bees back as he uses them himself?
